This 0.75 litre cork and caged bottle was obtained in the tourist area beside the caves at Hans-sur-Lesse in Namur, Belgium. It is brewed souly for tourist like you and me, the caves bye-the-way are fantastic, as is the train ride to them from the village centre.

Anyway, back to the beer: Poured into Kasteel and Leffe chalice glasses it looked like a Duvel without a head of foam. Pale blonde with a white wisp of a covering on top.

The aroma was of yeast and not much else.

The taste was fairly bland and far too fizzy, a dry aftertaste didn't help and because it had no body the alcohol took over with the dryness.

Not a nasty, but just a tourist brew by a brewery that specialises in such beers.

This was the first beer in a Belgian evening I organised and was choosen as the first beer because I knew it would be a thirst quencher and not a sipping beer. I was right.
