Brewer Explores the Low Countries
Somewhere in Beersel
November 5, 1998
Our first stop in Beersel was Tres Fountanous, or "Three
Fountains" to the linguistically challenged. We parked our parched pallettes in
the cafe, and ordered up some of the gueze that they blend here. Paul decided that
he had better get us checked in to the Centrum before it got too late, so off he went.
And who does he run into at the Centrum, but those same Americans that were in the
Curiosa in Brugges. It seems they were having some problems checking into the hotel,
as no English is spoken there. So Paul jumped in a helped them out. So they
joined our merry band of trekkers for the evening.
The Gueze is very good, dry and sharp, and compares very well to other
well made lambics.
