Biere Blanche from La Croix du Rat is the first in the series. It is made by a Steven Dunn, who is Irish but lives in St. Cyprien and has a stall at the bustling market of Sarlat. The market is held every Saturday morning and well worth a visit.
Mike – the real Yorkshire man who drinks real beer.
‘Light, perfumed flavour, well balanced, rather sweet for my taste, but for a beer at 6 per cent, not bad at all. Does not stay very long in the glass.’
Jean – not a beer drinker at all.
‘Flowery, not acidic, fine bubbles nice colour, I like it!’
We both liked the descriptive label and the plea to return the empty bottle to the brasserie. Good recycling and good business! The label was printed as one piece and wrapped around the bottle – very clever. Each beer has a really good description on the label of what has been used to make that particular beer.
