    Deus Does Exist


    I spotted bottles of Deus Brut des Flandres in my local Waitrose earlier this week. The 75cl bottles were priced at £12.15 each.

    I've never quite understood why Belgian beers using champagne yeast such as this, and Malheur Bière Brut are so expensive. After all Kasteel Cru is also brewed using this ingredient and is not sold at such a premium price.

    I'd be interested in how well it sells. Waitrose is, of course, quite a posh store, but is it really ready for such expensive beers?

    They sell this for €25 in my local offy. I paid €10 in the Spar across from the Bourse in Brussels and reckon that's about a fair price.

    It's shite anyway!

    It's alright, I think. But not as good as, say, Duvel.

    £12.15 seems like a lot for a bottle of beer. Don't know if I'd want to risk it.

    It’s a bloody good beer, goes well in a sorbet, is a good palate cleanser, ages well — and each to their own, it would be a boring world if we all liked the same thing — and what’s wrong with beer being the price of a fine wine, it does lift it up a bit or would we all rather wetherspoons’ prices, cheap ale, get ratted, nod our heads, fan our faces with CAMRA newsletters, phew it’s a good club in here — I suppose in a recession we would, but then on the other hand Setana is rather expensive if you want to watch a bunch of millionaires pretend to love the club they play for (I’m talking about you Adabayor).

    It is just a poor beer. IMO of course.
