If I'd meant root beer I'd have said root beer. >>>

Okay. Sometimes my email drops characters. Not usually whole words  
though. But to me the idea of ice cream in beer sounded a bit  
strange. It still does.  And being an uncultured lout I hadn't heard  
of those other drinks. I really didn't know whether they were beers  
I'd never heard of, or perhaps root beers, which again I'd not heard  
of. So, I wanted to make sure.

<<< Lindeman's lambic is real honest-to-gods beer. Comes in  
Framboise, Kriek,
Peche, and Pomme, and Cassis. But it is not cheap, so it's one of those
occasional indulgences.

If you click the EN on the upper right (next to NL and FR) you'll get
the English site. >>>

I really regret missing the beer class at Pennsic where the teacher  
went into all the different types of beer and passed around samples  
of a dozen or so different types. I find almost all beers I've had to  
be too bitter and I might have found some I liked.  Oh well. Maybe I  
can find a mundane class at UT or Central Market sometime.
