Here are two more beers from Bière pouset. The first one is the amber which is a 7.5% malty and fruity monster full of dried fruit and caramel. It is quite sweet and my wife loved it. The single downside being the slightly thin finish.
The Blonde was of the bitter variety with some caramel but again, the thin body let it down and to be honest it was a little meh.
Unlike the last two beers, this one is anything but thin. It is a Blonde from Saint Paul which is another brewery without a website. There really is no excuse for it in this day and age. Well they call it a Blonde but it is a German style wheat beer. It is actually pretty damn good. Spicy, banana notes and pretty wheaty packed in to a body that is almost chewy. Lovely stuff actually.
Finally for this session (over two nights) is La Croix des Grèves Brune. This was interesting and I enjoyed it. The first thing that hits you is how bitter it is, which is usually not the way of a Belgian style brown ale. The second thing is that it is very sour, and we are talking proper lambic sour here. It is very fizzy in a sherbet kind of way. There is caramel, toffee and dried fruit. There is a little metallic taste near the end as it warms up. I have a few more beers from Brasserie de la Baie I believe. They are located on Mont Saint Michel so that seems as good a reason as any to hit the tourist magnet. Perhaps next time I go to France by ferry, I was tempted to head in that direction this time but I decided to go East instead of West.
