Cuvee D'Erpigny beer aged in Monbazillac barrels
july 2011: my summer stroll in france continues ... this 15 percent alcohol belgian beer we had with palets bretons (butter cookies that are way too fattening for my own good), and that were very tasty together (a real devil-on-left-shoulder-win
s-out-over-angel-on-right- shoulder moment). this beer smelled kind of hoppy i think (but greg would really know better than i would) and was slightly sweet, with an ending minor bitterness. my parents both liked it. my dad had picked it up in belgium in a small beer store with more than 300 different types of beers. those belgians really know what they are doing with beer! anyway, the palet bretons (pure butter cookies) are on the bottom right.
