I'm not sure, I'll take a look for you.Hi Grayswandir, Just curious, is that a "brewed in America" version of Paulaner Hefe-Weizen? or is it "imported" from Germany? Typically, the imports label the content-volume in milliliters rather than fl.oz. I've never found the domestic (North American) versions to be quite as good as their European counterparts. Whenever I went to Munich, I liked Lowenbrau, but here in Quebec, we often got the "Brewed for Lowenbrau by Molson breweries" version, and although it was "similar", it was never quite the same.
I once did a blind test with some friends between the W12, Rochefort 10, and the St. Bernardus 12. Liked the W12 and the Rochefort 10 equally with the Bernardus placed behind them. I buy the W12 as a fun treat once in a while, but typically go for the Rochefort 10 due to it being considerably cheaper and less scarce.every time I crack one of those open I'm amazed how much flavors I forgot, it's so complex and well balanced....
I used to order crates of Rochefort 10 from a website called belgiuminabox, but unfortunately they went bankrupt. I've yet to find another good source. A single bottle of Rochefort 10 in Denmark is usually 5,5 EUR, which I think is too much.I agree, My preference is for WXII, by quite a bit but Rochefort is nice too and Bernardus also.... but since scarcity is not an issue at the shop I'm visiting for Belgian specialty beer.....
As rule of thumb you can use the Alcohol percentage (Vol%) as temperature in Celsius, so 5% at or around 5'C, 8% at or around 8 'C and so forth. The majority of Belgian beers is well over 6%, going up to 11%.At what temperature do you EU folks drink dark
beer. Room temp., chilled, or cold?
Rule nr 1 with beer...thou shalt not drink too slowly!Marcel is right, but I am a plebian so I like to drink all my beer as cold as possible. I like the first few sips to be ice cold and then the beer gradually loses the chill and flavors open up. If I pour the beer at optimal drinking temp, usually it will be too close to room temp by the time I finish it. Maybe I drink too slowly.
I guess so, lately craft brewers in the US are catching up though!EU is beer mecca. When I traveled in Japan and China it was apparent how much they enjoy beer too.
