We tried six cheeses:
Chevre affiné (4 months, goat cheese)
Chevre Gris (10 months, goat cheese)
Wyngaard Affineur (6 months, made of summer milk from cows)
Reypenaer (matured 1 year, made of winter milk)
Reypenaer VSOP (2 years, winter milk)
Reypenaer XO Reserve (2,5 years, summer milk)
I liked them all, but Reypenaer topped my list, followed by VSOP, XO Reserve and Wyngaard Affineur.

Femke is in Benin for a week of work, and I am languishing back home, trying unsuccessfully to work. As an antidote I tried out a new beer bar called Beer Temple together with our friend Sander. It has the same owner as another good beer bar (t’Arendsnest), but where the latter only serves Dutch beer (but close to 100 of them) Beer Temple is specialized in American Micro breweries.
I started with an Anchor Liberty Ale on tap, which was beautiful. We also compared two of the Danish brewing genius Mikkeller’s concoctions, the Mikkeller Single Hop Simcoe with his Single Hop Nelson. Both were nice but the one brewed with Simcoe hop was without a doubt the better one.
