Beer: Bourbon Metiss
Brewed: Brasserie de Bourbon, Saint-Denis, Réunion
Size: 330mL
Alcohol Content: 3.5%
Sourced: Chateau Rouge Market
World Beer Rating: 3/10.
Notes:  This is marketed as a fruity beer, only it has almost no carbonation and tastes like sugary water mixed with tropical fruit squash. Réunion is so small I’m impressed they even have a brewery. Probably one for the ladies on a tropical beach in Réunion…
