Saison Dupont keg just on apparently. With Nogne Imperial Brown Ale, Jaipur and a Duchesse De Bourgogne waiting in the cellar.

They're doing good things!!

Drinking the Verhaeghe Duchesse De Bourgogne right now.

Sherbert aroma and a taste of currants and berry fruit.

Light bodied. Not quite interesting enough to have another.

This year I think that I will finally develop an invisible cardigan and my project to extract gold from spiders legs will also reap great rewards.

yep. Maybe if it was a warmer day and it had been a bit cooler it would have worked better :-)

A friend in the office had a pint of Jaipur there yesterday at the staggering cost of £4.90.

They're normally very good with prices, but that does feel a little high. I am assuming it's reflective of the price of the keg, of which I doubt there are many around.

£6.50 a pint for Raging Bitch up the road.
