A bit late as I didn’t have time during the travel day, but here is the vlog from day 7 of our roadtrip! A full day in Bruges!
Day 6 of the road trip was at last the beer part of the trip with visits at both Dupont and Westvleteren. Just one more full day to go!
Day three brings us through Netherlands, castles and down to Luxembourg City. A very special city where you actually take an elevator between different parts of the city.
So me and Karin are on a Roadtrip in Europe right now and stupid me decided that I should do a daily vlog… This is episode one and the plan is to publish one day behind all the time to have some time for editing hehe. But we’ll see if I succeed anyway because wow it takes time! Power to the ones who do this!
First of all I want to say I’m sorry, the plan was to update the blog once a week and I missed publishing a post last Friday. I do however hope the reason is good enough for you to let it pass this time. The reason was because I was recording my first vlog! I then hoped to have it ready for Saturday and thought that one day late was ok. But as this was the first time, I gravely underestimated how long it would take to edit it (as I’m a bit of a perfectionist and it was a loooong time since I edited a video for real) and suddenly it became Monday.
But here it is, my first vlog! I Hope you enjoy. Also, if you have any feedback, just leave a comment below.
Last night I opened a bottle of one of my favorite beers, a Rodenbach Alexander. This beer is just an amazing work of art. First of all, and the most important thing, is that it really has the perfect balance between sweetness and sourness. Usually I don’t like Krieks and beers with cherries, but this is the exception as, exactly as the sourness, the cheery taste is perfectly balanced.
I recommend this beer to both beer drinkers that hate sour beer and sour beer lovers. It’s not that complex, it is just a super nice balanced (yes, I used that word once again) beer that has a long taste.
One problem though, the beer has only been available in limited quantities once in 2016 and once in 2017 (after the brewery stopped producing it in 1999). That is, until now! Earlier this year the news came that we now can order the beer at Systembolaget in Sweden all year round. I was so happy! But the story doesn’t end there, about two weeks ago more news came, now the beer has hit over 90 stores all over the country so it has become even easier to get a hold of.
If you haven’t tried it yet, do it now!
