Drinking the Marseillaise

If you go to Lons-le-Saunier, the hometown of Rouget de Lisle, composer of the Marseillaise, you can buy a lot of merchandise.

There’s Marseillaise cakes, Marseillaise towels, replica Marseillaise manuscripts… But – getting to important matters – what’s the beer like?

Nice label, featuring not only Rouget de Lisle waving, but three French flags. “A heavy duty beer with a hint of coriander,” it says on the back. “Bottle fermented.”

Nice colour.

Let’s not comment on the taste.
