I knew it'd be good for several reasons:
- I've had several glasses of Glenfiddich already.
- My wife bought it.
- It's from Marks & Spencers.
- It's beer.
Number 3 might seem incongruous with the ethos of this site but hey ho ... it was dandy. I've had a few other ales from M&S and they've all been reliably tasty.
This one was from the Huyghe Brewery in Melle, Belgium and lists orange peel and coriander among its ingredients.
Check Huyghe's site out: they've got this neat out-of-focus pink elephant thing going on. And their brewing timeline goes back to the 17th century. That's impressive.
Anyhow, there was a bit of a floral aroma to this that minded me of daffodils. And a rich dark colour. Taste? Like a chewy cherryade. Not my usual, but delicious.
Now I'm gonna wash it down with more whisky.
Hoppy new year!!
