Green beer, diarrhoea and penis waffles
Fruit flavoured beers!
As it turns out it is mainly fruit juice mixed with beer. Definitely not my preference but also not as unpleasant as I thought something so sweet would be. And yes, we confirmed that girls do like this stuff as well.
Eventually we found our way to one of Taiwan’s first microbreweries, the Le Ble D’Or, located at the 4th level of the Q-Square shopping complex. They serve lagers: a regular lager, a stout, and a honey lager. Their lagers have a German influence with a local twist, for example the honey lager is made with Taiwan longan honey. They experimented with other ingredients and previously offered a “smoked” beer where they used smoked malt from Denmark, however this was not available when we visited. There’s more detail in an interview with the brewer, Quentin Yeh, in this article here.
