Jeff’s friend brought him back a bottle of the Westvleteren 8 awhile back. And since there was such a hubbub a few weeks ago because of an interesting article in the Wall Street Journal, we figured it was the perfect time to try it. Unfortunately, this was about 2 weeks ago, so I don’t remember the beer in excruciating detail.
I do remember that I was giddy as Jeff poured… It was very floral and fruity and had a kind of a caramel mouthfeel. It also had that distinctive Belgian yeast flavor ? but the good kind of yeast flavor.
