Belgian Beer no.82: Leute Bokbier

The Happy Goat? We are still at the Van Steenberge stand. This Belgian Beer was first brewed in 1927, yet production stopped and was only restarted in 1997. It is a dark red colored beer, I didn’t personally try out.
Yet I was told it had hints of caramel, quite sweet and rich. What I found to be just great about the Leute Bokbier, was the glass though. I have never before seen a beer glass comes with its very own wooden support. Chic.
And as we are still in the beer and food world, another recipe from the website of the Van Steenberge brewery. This time around, game.
Rabbit with Leuke Bokbier
1 rabbit
2 chopped apples
1 finely sliced strip of smoked bacon
1 finely shredded onion
1 slice of brown bread
33 cl Leute Bokbier
water, natural butter, mustard, thyme, sugar, pepper & salt
Cut the rabbit in pieces and brown well in butter and sugar. Add all remaining ingredients and leave it on a low flame (for approximately 45 min.) until done. Add a slice of bread spread with mustard at the beginning of the preparation. This will thicken the sauce.
Serve with potatoes.

I tasted the beer - that very one! A little sweet for my taste buds but not bad at all.

The recipe looks delicious (but calorific). Anyone tried it?
