I'm a sucker for design when it comes to making purchases, especially about things I don't know much about (beer, wine and the like). I'm not an overtly girly girl (though some may beg to differ), but I'm underwhelmed by the design of most beers.
Dark green glass, a beautiful label and cork top are not necessarily what one thinks about when it comes to beer, but much to my delight I found all of the above in Foret Saison! A lovely organic ale from Belgium, it's delicious and so pretty that I wanted to save the bottle and the cork.
The company says it pairs well with grilled meats and kidneys, but I'll stick to the former. Definitely a lovely alternative to the standard gift of wine for the party host (ahem). XO
