It's not just Belgian Beer - it's....

It's Marks and Spencers Belgian Beer.

I know that there are fellow fans of Belgian beer on here, so I thought this might be useful information.

Ithought I'd try a bottle (or two) - just to see. It turns out, reading the bottle, that it is brewed by a Belgian brewer famous for a pink elephant logo (who would that be then?  ::-)).

It's an interesting light, coriander and orange flavoured brew - very acceptable on a warm summer's evening I felt.

Bad news is it's only 4.5, but that just means you can have more!

That sounds like Delirium, but they range from 8.5 to 10%

Could be an export special maybe?

Does it mention Hughe/Melle? Might have to get some in any case.

Yes, brewed in the Huyghe brewery.

You get some good own brand stuff. Sainsbury's own brand weiss bier used to be excellent. Not had any for a couple of years though.
I think you'll find it's a bit more complicated than that.
