Beer-Braised Beef served with Smoked Gouda Mashed Potatoes – $

Beer-Braised Beef served with Smoked Gouda Mashed Potatoes – $

Previously, the beer-braised beef was found on a waffle as well. A few years ago they decided it looked more attractive on mashed potatoes, and we agree. It’s also a lot easier to eat! The beef is ultra tender and falls apart with a fork, and there’s plenty of gravy and mashed potatoes to help soak each other up. It’s an absolutely fantastic dish, albeit not looking the most photogenic. We recommend checking it out. Actually, we’re going to recommend everything here at Belgium. Check out the other items below!

Belgian Waffle with Warm Chocolate Ganache – $

 Belgian Waffle with Warm Chocolate Ganache – $

The chefs here are making waffles fresh to order making the price tag immediately worth it. There’s two varieties, here we have the chocolate ganache. The chocolate is ultra-rich and turns the waffle and whipped cream into a sweet wonderland.

Belgian Waffle with Berry Compote and Whipped Cream – $

Golden Malted® Belgian Waffle with Berry Compote and Whipped Cream – $

And this one is the berry compote version. There’s a much more prevalent topping on this waffle compared to the drizzle of chocolate. Both are really sweet and tasty, it comes down to personal preference. At the price, you really can’t go wrong with the freshly prepared waffles.

St. Bernardus Witbier (5.5% ABV) – $4.50

From St. Bernardus: “St. Bernardus Wit is famed for its zesty tastes of coriander and orange, with background touches of spicy cloves, fragrant with fruit and citrus. These zingy herbs combine with the creaminess of the wheat to produce a beer that is a masterclass in balance. The mild mouth feel produces a lovely interaction between the sweet malty taste and the refreshing touches of acid to produce a feeling of freshness overall.”

Delirium Red Fruit Beer (8.0% ABV) – $

Delirium Red Fruit Beer (8.0% ABV) – $

Delirium says their Red Fruit Beer has a “soft fruity aroma, with hints of almond and mildly sour cherries,” with a taste that’s “sweet and fruity, with a nice balance between sweet and sour. An excellent dessert beer.”

As a fan of beer and of Delirium; I am disappointed that Delirium released this beer. Our group all agreed this was not a good option. Some said it tasted like cough medicine and others said it tasted artificial. This is something you can surely pass on.

Chimay DorĂ©e Gold (4.8% ABV) – $

From Belgian-Style Ales: “This hazy golden Trappist Belgian Pale Ale has a large, billowy head and an aroma of citrus and pear with peppery and spicy notes. Flavor is like the aroma, with low bitterness and a hint of coriander and orange marmalade. Light in body, lower in alcohol, and with a semi-dry finish…”
