Caracole, an organic microbrewer with a snail logo located near Dinant, Brussels. Sherry, Allison and I have been on a special food tour of Liege and its surrounding neighborhoods all day. By the time we got to the brewery for lunch, I was starving and exhausted. I needed either a double espresso or a nap under the bar. Either way, a beer tasting felt far from what I needed that moment.
Caracole brews four different types of beer: Caracole, Saxon, Troublette and Nostradamus. Starting with Caracole being a light summer beer moving Nostradamus, a dark porter. In the haze of information overload and a pending coma, I remember zero details about the brewery or each beer's characteristic but I can say without doubt, I LOVE their beer!
This declaration of love holds more weight than detailed tasting notes on the beer cause you see….I love food, I know food, I love wine, I love whisky & tequila, but I don't love beer. Seeing how I am entirely indifferent to the yeasty brew, this passionate declaration of love for the snail beer means that it is extra special!
