Fresh Stella is actually a darn fine beer.  It wouldn't be my first choice (or 2nd or 12th or 21st) whilst in Belgium, but there ain't nothing wrong with enjoying 33cl of those suds.

Stella in green bottles brought across the pond, on the other hand, not so much....

My wife likes Stella, and beers of that ilk.  Her dislikes would be IPAs and stouts etc.  She doesn't like "strong" flavors much, hot sauces, tannic wines, strong beer, but she does like sweet tea.

Oddly enough, she claims her father drank Bordeaux back in the day and she claims she likes them because they are not so strong, which to me, is, well, controversial.

Yeah I'd describe Bordeaux as being pretty "strong."  Or, "bold."  And certainly "complex."

It's the most delicious wine on the planet, of course.

I tried, once, to convince her that she would probably prefer Rhone wines as they are usually less tannic, "smoother", etc.  She just disagrees.  I pulled a blind taste on her once and she got grumpy.

It was my first visit to France, almost 30 years ago now, that cemented my love for French wine and specifically Bordeaux.  I spent 3 months there working for that particular trip, and for the first two months one of my best friends was along with me (we worked for the same company and went there initially as a team).

After my first few weeks, I really started zeroing in on Bordeaux, while he developed a taste for Cotes du Rhone.  I like both, of course, but to this day we have an ongoing friendly argument about which is better.

As I've said before, if someone offered me a nice bottle, I'd lean to Burgundy, but in reality, I like them all.  I think Bordeauxs drunk too young can be not so great.  Drunk with proper age, they can be exceptional.

Duvel makes some tasty beer.  They can be quite strong and folks are often surprised by the ABV.
