So, it's summer time. It's hot in the
city and you're looking to cool down. The problem is
you're torn between a cool, refreshing beer to take
the edge off, and passing on the alcohol ( for a little
while, anyway) and indulging in an ice-cold, fruit slush
drink that Taiwan does so well. Ahhh! Decisions, decisions.
At Le ble d'or, the up-and-coming micro-brewery, you'll
never have to make such a choice. You can have both.
Together! Those clever people at Le ble d'or have managed
to combine these two options skillfully and tastefully-creating
a range of delicious Beer Fruit Slushes. Although the
idea initially sounds a little odd, once you've tried
one you'll be a convert. Three of these beauties are
made with the light, crisp Le ble d'or white beer (Hefe-Weisbier):
mango, passionfruit and pineapple, all available for
the equally refreshing price of NT$150. One other offering-and
my personal favourite-is the Rasperry Stout Slush (NT$150).
It's a little heavier than the others but the taste
is.....sooo good! So, if you're looking to cool down
AND take the edge off a hard week at work, get down
to Le ble d'or and give these great drinks a try.
