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 2,000 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).

Petrus Beers

I have covered a couple of these Belgian beers before but not as a group just for them, so please bear with me.  I can not think of a order to do these in, so how about by strength, starting with the weakest first.

Petrus, Speciale, Belgium

Petrus, Speciale, Belgium Petrus, Speciale, Belgium

5.5% deep gold colour with no head, malty aroma, slightly fizzy mellow taste.

Petrus, Oud Bruin, Belgium

Petrus, Oud Bruin, Belgium Petrus, Oud Bruin, Belgium

5.5% deep brown in colour with a good head, aroma is of deep fruits and the taste is sweet but tart.

Petrus, Dubble Bruin, Belgium

Week 8 - An52 Beers, Petrus, Dubble Bruin, Belgium

6.5%, dark brown with a good head, aroma of roasted malts and fruit, sweet caramel with a bitter aftertaste, good.

Petrus, Blond, Belgium

Petrus, Blond, Belgium Petrus, Blond, Belgium

6.6% golden with a good head, sweet aroma, nice crisp taste, was very good with a BBQ.

Petrus, Gouden Tripel, Belgium

Petrus, Gouden Tripel, Belgium Petrus, Gouden Tripel, Belgium

7.5% cloudy gold with a good head, sweet yeast aroma, slightly bitter but sweet fruity taste, nice but not the best Petrus beer.

Petrus, Aged Red from Belgium

Petrus, Aged Red, Belgium Petrus, Aged Red, Belgium

8.5% deep red in colour with a nice head, cherry aroma and a cherry flavour and not as acidic as it is supposed to be.

My Book

Well I started to write a book before my stroke, and have only just got around to finishing it yesterday.   The story is ok but as for the English, spelling and maybe the odd repeat, I think that I have done fairly well.

The book is a SF inspired story, about a couple on holiday in France who find a device that allows them to jump almost anywhere on earth.  It also includes drinking tips on the beers of the continent.

I would be pleased if you could take the time to have a read.
