If you know me or of me, you will know I like beer. Over the last few years I have been collecting photos of every new beer I have.
I now have over 1,700 individual beers photographed and have realised that many beers that I assumed I have photos of, I haven't.

This blog will be therefore be an account of my quest for new beers to photo and how I enjoyed them (or not).

Two new beers on Wednesday

I am way too far behind with my beer reviewing, so I will just start with the new beers I had on Wednesday night.

The first one brought round by my friend Dave, was bought for him by his son while on holiday in Sardinia.

Barley, Túvi Túvi from Italy

6.2% hazy gold colour with a good head, flowery yeasty aroma, yeasty (and maybe some liquorish) grapefruit taste.

This beer is classed as a Spice/Herb/Vegetable beer.

Any ale or lager made with herbs, spices or vegetables. The additive should be distinctive in the aroma. See beer description for flavour. body, color, hop character and strength vary depending on the type of spice, herb or vegetable used.

Next was a beer I have had in the cupboard for a couple of months.

Schneider, Schneider Weisse Tap 5 Meine Hopfen-Weisse from Germany
