Belgian Beer no.328: Jean de Nivelles - Brune

We actually went to Nivelles (and no, not only to drink the beer!) and that is where we discovered the two Nivelles beers. And guess what?

The Jean de Nivelles Brune is the exact same one as the ... St. Feuillien Brune! Ha! Who would have thought we will find the same beer under two different names? Does this apply to other Belgian beers as well?

In any case the brune is a nice dark brown beer, 7.5% with hints of chocolate and caramel.

I would imagine it's done for other beers although extremely well masked by branding... its done in almost every other part of the world and I'd think that (as much as we like to think it isn't true) it would be done to some extent in Belgium.

BTW - I'm jealous reading your blog...
