The Blue Cat
November 2, 1998
This, as you might gather from the name, is a student hangout at the
university. But if you think this might mean cheap, boring beer for the masses of
college age kids, all I can say is that there is not bud served here.
Rodenback Alexander: 33 cl, 100 BFr, 6%.
Slightly sweet, but source enobugh to be refeshing. Cherry comes through in the
Westvleteren Trappist 12, 33 cl, 110 Bfr, 11%.
The most authentic of all the Trappist Ales, brewed by Sixtus, and definitely the most
difficult to find, as it is only sold at the monastary, and sales are limited to 10 cases
per customer. Big, brown, malty, some astringency. This beer has no label, all
of the information is on the cap.
Chimay 8 Tripel: 33 cl, 80 Bfr, 8%
Earthy aroma, spicy flavor. Highly carbonated.
This is a big barn-like place, with some of the most annoying canned music in recent
memory. Best to ignore the 70 era bubblegum, and stick to the beer.

Personally, I think I would prefer this way
over drinking Bud, but the results are basically the same.
