Beer Review #2

I screwed this review up because it’s been several months since I drank the beers. I’ll give it a shot though.
First up is Okocim, a Polish beer. Basically I thought it tasted a lot like a Labatts/Molson product, and maybe it was a bit worse. Entirely forgettable.
Paulaner Salvator from Germany was next up. To be honest, I don’t really remember much about it. I know that I wasn’t crazy about it, but it wasn’t too bad. You could give it a shot but there’s other beers that you’re likely to want to try first.
Naturaland Organic Lager is a local beer (ie made in BC) from Pacific Brewing. In many ways it is your typical Canadian lager. However, it has two things going for it. First, it’s supposedly organic which isn’t a bad thing. Secondly, it has a hint of the euro/becks type flavor which maybe sets it a bit above the likes of the typical kokanee/canadian beers. I recommend it with that in mind.
Finally there was Wittekerke, a Belgium wheat beer. It was okay and a typical wheat beer. I liked it and would drink it again. There’s probably better beers like this out there though.

  1. Aha, another beer lover… As a Belgian I have no choice then to be one 😉 Anyway, it’s always interesting to hear from our beers from another person’s view. I see you liked the wheat beer and just as a tip I’ll propose some other Belgian wheat beers for you; maybe you could try the most popular one called “Hoegaarden” or “Brugs Tarwebier” or “Denterghemse”.
    I myself am more into the strong ones so I must disagree with your review of the “Chimay Bleu”. In this range you should try “Orval” or “Westvleteren”. The last one may be hard to get (I always keep a little stash 🙂 )

  2. I’ll need to check out some of your recommendations, thanks! Hoegaarden is quite popular here, relatively speaking. It, along with Stella Artois, are well known. Stella is almost commonplace. I just had two more nice Czech beers last week, I’ll write some notes on them soon.
    nice to hear from someone from Belgium, cheers
