baltic pale ale by @insel_brauerei
a belgian style pale strong ale, very yellow (the picture does not do it full justice), the taste citrusy, tangy, bit grapefruity. the bottle says it's ideal for hot&spicy food and i agree :). veeery good.
Since yesterday at 3pm, the girls have been under attack from small hive beetle. I killed 8, while the girl's were doing the same. The Beetles were trying to squeeze through the crack between the 2 halves of the box "Both Hives were copping it" hence I have taped all joins. I also added extra wax around their entry to make it easier for the girl's & harder for the nasties *
The girl's were not too happy this morning. Something took out their artwork last night, am thinking a lizard. I have given them more wax to rebuild with & regreased the pole, it seem's to have placated them. *
A friend & I opened one of my hives today because some of the girl's were acting like they were drunk. One landed in my hand, was writhing & then a pinky coloured worm came out of her rectum before she died. After many phone call's it seem's they were attacked by parasitic wasp's. Ggrrr, I loathe stinkin rotten bloody wasp's. On a footnote, this is the white wax hive. I can see what they are doing with that extra wax lol *
The Girl's are keen to go to work, but it's raining If you want amazing pet's like my girl's & you want to help the environment...please contact Sarah Hamilton at @beeyourselfaustralia & she will be more then happy to set you up with a hive! *
We love this, such a creative use of raw smoked honey, paired fresh with oysters coriander and black pepper! Reminds me of the asian style @charmainesolomon.author black pepper and coriander paste i used to make out of mums 1980's @womansweekly collection, was an absolute ripper
