Belgian Beer no.123: Silly Saison

Our initial aim was to visit the Brasserie de Silly (isn't this a great name?) but the brewery was closed. So what did we do? Go to the brewery bar and try all the beers they had from the Brasserie de Silly.
First one up the Silly Saison. A brown beer, light at 5% and quite flavored. Fruity I'd say.

As you're growing up as a teenager, there are a number of things that you look forward to; getting your drivers license, graduating

from high school, going to your senior prom, having your first date and having your first beer. The problem with this last one is

that the drinking age and the thing you want make it something that you just can't have yet. And still, you want it and will go to

any lengths to get it.

Underage beer drinking is certainly no secret and to try to sweep it under the carpet isn't going to make it go away. But the most

odd thing about underage drinking when it comes to beer is that even after kids sneak their first beer, they still want to have

another one. If you're wondering why that sounds so strange then you need to think back to when YOU had your first beer. It was

pretty nasty tasting. Let's be honest, beer is bitter and is an acquired taste. Very few people, if any at all, enjoyed their first

beer. Many even get sick after it because of the taste or the fact that they're not used to the alcohol yet.
