Papegaei

I’ve seen a number of reviews of this beer, but I don’t just want to parrot what I’ve read elsewhere, so here’s mine.

Papegaei is from the Verstraete brewery in Diksmuide, West Flanders. It’s a strong blonde ale and fairly honest to that Belgian style, though it is perhaps a fizzier and foamier in mouthfeel. The taste includes notes of herbs and boiled sweet. Fiona picked up violet on the nose as well.

We would say it’s solid enough for the style, but not particularly outstanding or unusual.

As for food pairing, it would probably go well with, um, a cracker?
