Belgian Beer no.71: Loterbol

I am not sure I remember this one ... but it was white beer, quite heavy. I remember when and where we tried it out: during a white beer marathon at the Bier Circus.
The Loterbol is brewed by the Loterbol Brewery, there is the draught blond 6%, the bottle blond 8% and the bottle dark 8%.

Belgian Beer no.70: Grisette

Moving on to the next beer in my personal quest for Belgian Beer. All see is Belgian Beer. All I drink is Belgian Beer. All I write about is Belgian Beer. All I dream about is Belgian Beer. When will it all end?
The next (and it is only number 70!) is the Grisette Blanche. In Belgian terms this is considered a special Belgian Beer, because of its low alcohol content at only 5%. Advertised as a very fresh summer beer, I have to admit I liked it less than other white Belgian Beers. Then again my Belgian Beer of choice at the moment with the heat and all is a very fresh Hoegaarden with a slice of lemon. Chic.

Already mentioned under Beer no.56, the Grisette Blanche is produced by the Brasserie Friart, together with the Grisette Blonde 5%, the Grisette Amber 4.5%, the Grisette Fruit 3.5%. And of course the whole range of St. Feuillien range of Belgian Beers.

Belgian Beer no.69: Gouyasse, or Goliath

Another Belgian Beer tried out at the Bier Circus. This time around my ordering criteria were very simple: a white beer I don't know. This is how I came across the Gouyasse.
Apparently the name is a sweet diminutive (?) given to Goliath, tradition and history which repeat itself every year in Ath, the region where this beer comes from.
I really enjoyed this Belgian Beer. A little on the bitter side, it was a refreshing white beer at 6%. Very much your classic white beer, tastes of hops and malt.
Brewed by the Brasserie des Geants, in translation the Giants, you can imagine that the Gouyasse is not the only Belgian Beer they brew. Others are the Gouyasse Triple 9%, the Saison Voisin 5%, the Urchon 7.5%, the Ducassis 5.7%.
