Shepherd and Neame Christmas Ale
Fuller's Vintage Ale
Old Crafty Hen
King Goblin
Old Peculier
McEwans Champion

Fullers 1845

Tried first bottle of my Trappist single after a week in the bottle. Nicely carbonated. dry easy drinking Belgian. Second time brewing this beer, really like the ease of drinking like a lager at 5.7% with a noble hops and a subtle Belgian yeast character

So I drank about half the 1698 and dumped the stout and moved onto this delicious little gem. Then I looked at the abv and it's 7.5%. No wonder it has such flavour! It's pretty similar to that recipe I stole from @strange-steve

If you like pikantus step up to the next level and grab an aventinus from schnieder & sohn. (granted pikantus is available in waitrose)

Thanks for the rec, I had too Google both names even though I am drinking one of them :). I will try to get a bottle. I am wondering if it may show up in my case from Germany I ordered?

My August 2019 SAISON! - Delicious - aged well. (it was crystal clear until I caught a bit of yeast trying to be greedy :-(

It's like I bought a bottle of my risky business 3. Which is both encouraging & dissappointing. It's also made with.......

oh yeah - its underpasturised too, like they tried to but failed.

It's possible then that this might be my last post wink...

My favourite last post would be the one in Ypres. Very poignant.

Personally I think bas***d sugar goes better with fu**ing malt and sod**ing hops.

it's going to be around £5 a bottle in the uk if you can get it but deffo worth trying.
and a brilliant antedote for ipa/dipa/neipa overload

Lyles golden in a belgian, super interesting idea.

And thanks!
I read somewhere that golden syrup is a type of inverted sugar, similar in make up to Belgian candy sugar and is easier for yeast to ferment than normal table sugar..I didn't have any Belgian candy syrup so thought I would give it a try. I may have got the wrong end of the stick but seems to have worked ok as far as I can taste😁

Sloe wine. This years late august picking. First time making and tasting it. Really like it, it will probably improve with time (15 bottles to go). Can’t remember recipe, but nothing fancy. Have got a smaller 1 gal batch on the go at the moment from a November picking using the Brewbitz recipe (looks gross), so will be good to compare.
