So this was embarrassing. Went all the way to Belgium to drink their lovely beer. We’re rather fond of the Trappist beers in particular, and looking at their complete list of all the Trappist beers, we saw a name new to us. So of course we ordered it. Only to find we’d managed to order the only English beer in the place 😝But, how exciting, that the UK now has a Trappist beer of its own - it was delicious!
