Beer-Braised Beef with Smoked Gouda Mashed Potatoes – $5.50
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, 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!
Golden Malted®Belgian Waffle with Warm Chocolate Ganache and Whipped Cream – $4.25
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.
Golden Malted® Belgian Waffle with Berry Compote and Whipped Cream – $4.25
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 $4.25 a piece, you really can’t go wrong with the freshly prepared waffles.
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 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.
Stella Artois says their Hard Cidre “pairs a soft, apple-y sweetness with a crisp dryness.”
Beer Flight – $9.75
From 2018: Left to right: Leffe Blonde Belgian Pale Ale, St Bernardus Witbeir, St Bernadus Abt 12. This flight is *only* $9, the same cost as every other beer flight at the festival, but the alcohol content of these beers is far higher than the others. Especially that Abt 12 coming in at 10%. These beers are all rich, heavy, and tasty in their own right. St Bernardus is relatively difficult to find on draft so being able to get not just one two two of their beers from a draft is exciting. Don’t miss this flight.
