Hello Steemers,

Yesterday I went to the beer festival in Mechelen, Belgium. The festival lasts three days, I went on the second day. It's all about experiencing different kinds of Belgian beers and their flavours. There are more than 150 beers available from more than 35 Belgian breweries located all around Belgium. It's impossible to taste all of them in three days, I tried but came nowhere near that number in only one afternoon.

I highly recommend the festival for anyone that is from the area. Every brewery was so passionned about their beer(s) and the organisation did an amazing job with all the tables, booths, heaters, lighting (great for pictures when it's dark), etc. I had an awesome afternoon with great beers and with some of my friends. 

It's time for me to share you my first beer tasting experience of the afternoon, I tasted 7 different beers, all from different brewerie.

Tamera is a blond triple, gold-yellow colored, fruity (citrus), smooth and exotic tasting beer. It's brewed by the Engima brewery in Heusden-Zolder, Belgium. It's the first beer that they brought on the market. It was my favourite beer of the day, the taste was amazing, so smooth, it's for sure a silent killer with it's 9% alchohol content.

The name Tamera is inspired by the Belgian river: the Demer, which is derived from the Celtic Tamera or Tamara which means Black River. In old Britain, Tamara, the woman on the label was also a goddess of the rivers.

Thanks for reading this post, make sure to follow me, I try to post one post each 2 days! (unless I'm too hangover from the day before)
