I tried a few Belgian beers recently (orval & bios) The taste is quite
different from most other beer. Looking through CJOH I gathered that there is
a special type of fermentation process... though could not quite determine
exactly (effects of the beer). Does malo-lactic ring a bell? Is a special
yeast used (of course) and can it be cultured from the bottle? They used
wheat in one (bios) but it was different from other 'weiss' beer I've had.
The beers are tart and effervescent and would love to know if anyone has
successfully brewed such a beer. Please send hints and recipies!!!
