Lovely Beer - a blast from the past.
This is a terrific beer which I hope becomes very popular - fans of Belgian beer should love this. Back in the eighties this was available on draught (half pints only), and was one of my top three favourites - I looked for it for many years without success and assumed it had gone for ever (the 80/- is a nice "heavy" but not in the same class), so I was delighted to come across it on the GK site. I bought 30, and will definitely be back for more!
Wee but the best!
If enjoy a strong beer then look no further than a bottle of Wee Heavy absolutely top quality, a stunning beer that packs a punch, just love it, one of my go to beers that is for sure.
Really enjoyable, just like it should be, quality ale.
