158/806) Home:  Gouden Carolus Tripel by Brouwerij Het Anker of Belgium:  **;  9%;  undergoes secondary fermentation in bottle;  like St. Feuillien Grand Cru and others, sugar is added during brewing;  retro-candy necklace type of sweet nose;  opens quite unusually sweet but not cloyingly so;  a touch of (dried) fruitiness kicks in and hops make their presence know towards finish; 

159/807) Home:  Maverick & Gose a collaboration between Amsterdam and Great Lakes Brewery both of Ontario:  *1/2;  5.9%;  "a rare German brew of medieval origin made of a mostly malted wheat base";  brewed Sept 2012 with spices and pink Himalayan salt;  very wheaty nose;  wheaty, cidery with a hint of salt in the finish and after taste ;  might make for an expensive but successful marinade;  not as off-putting as I had anticipated, though my wife liked it a lot more than I did;

A few Belgians.
