The one area where I’ve had to knock a star off as far as the guide is concerned is that for the walker (i.e. nearly all) the maps offered were completely inadequate given no road names (save a few main numbers). Not a huge deal as phones have GPS and many maps are available elsewhere. For a guide so otherwise perfect, this to me seemed like such an obvious and glaring omission. Nevertheless, an essential guide for anyone seeking out the very best beer that Belgium has to offer. And I agree. The pink elephants really do start to drive you mad!
Sadly what spoils this book for me, is the ratings given to the different beers. I can't help but feel writer Tim Webb's taste buds are not what they used to be. I am a keen visitor to Belgium, having sampled in excess of 50 beers on my last trip, and someone who is soon to be in the business of Belgian beers, so I feel I can speak with some authority on the subject.
Many beers that my family, friends and I rate extremely highly are given a poultry 3/5.5, others which we consider very bland, poor examples are elevated to 4.5/5.5. Of course its only natural that everybody has different opinions, however when the famous multi-award winning Westvleteren 12, widely regarded to be THE best beer in the world, scored a mere 4.5/5.5, lower than numerous other much more forgettable beers, one must surely question the validity of his entire scoring system. For a much more well rounded opinion on taste, check out websites like ratebeer.com
