  Famous Antwerp Bolleke and a local Waagstuk
by irisbe

Belgium beer is so good you might want to drink more then you can take!

Het Waagstuk is a rather sweet comercial tasing tripel like beer. It is named after the pub Het Waagstuk. This name refers to an building that used to stand in the middle of the square and that was a public bascul. However during Napoleon's occupation it burned down.

Unique Suggestions: Drink slowly, enjoy the taste....
and never leave a glass empty nor full!
That is what my late uncle said when he died with a smile on his face and his glass in his hands!

Fun Alternatives: show character and don't give in... but get terrible thirsty viewing the others enjoy.

Review Helpfulness: 3.5 out of 5 stars
