Brasserie Thiriez La Rouge Flamande (5.8%)

La Rouge FlamandBlimey, this is sweet.
It’s like treacle tart.
A heavy malt kick that’s sticky and sugary, butter rich and thick with treacle soaked shortcrust pastry, there’s no let up in the sugary attack.
You also get beaten around the head by a great big toffee apple.
Strangely, none of this is a complaint, as for some reason this works.
Even the lack of any real hop presence except for the merest swipe of tamarind and lemon zest doesn’t put me off.
Thick, sticky, sweet, I wouldn’t want more than one little glass of this beer, but it’s definitely worth a go.
