Rodenbach is probably my favourite every day beer and I didn't know it was called a "flemish red". As Viktorvaughn experienced, I would also think of Kriek or another fruit beer.
Has anyone here tried the Austrian Trappist, Gregorius? I've had all other 7 so I'd like to try the 'new' one.

My grandparents would never have called a black man black (zwart), they would have said nigger (a word that only started to be considered offensive through the influence of American...
