Belgian Beer no.251 and no.155 revisited: Boerken and Boerinneken

A series of beers reviewed by Michael follows for the next couple of days. This will give us the chance to try and drink some more for you.

Still at Paters Vaetje, but on a different day I hasten to add (!), we tried two beers – Boerinneken (beer no. 155) and Boerken, which thanks to Andreea’s translation is “the farmer”.Uniquely, one glass serves both of these beers, with the picture of the Boerinneken on one side, and the Boerken on the other. Whilst both are 9.5% beers, the Boerinneken pours an amber colour, with a hoppy fruity taste, and the Boerken a dark brown colour with a more malty taste. Not exceptional beers by any account, but still worth trying.
