The only other beer with similar suvere reactions is delirium tremens. For it I get severe stomach cramping similar to if I eat an almond.
I have severe nut and fish allergies. I know the fish isn't the problem as aside from one with honey all Unibroue beer are vegan.

So.. if your like me you just have to stay away from those 4 beer.

wow! interesting. I wonder if we have some type of reaction from the esters produced by their yeast stain(s). I'm set to brew a tripel next week and I'm gong to use the wyeast Canadian / Belgian PC yeast. It is suppose to be Unibrou's strain. We will see what happens! Sucks because their beer is really good and Maudite is probably my favorite Belgian Dark Strong .

Interesting that The End Of The World beer makes your throats start to constrict.

Regarding the sinus congestion and headaches; is that the case for all beers?

Personally I experienced similar effects with certain beers, but not with all.

Consider the hops or yeast in the beers that cause the effect. You still may be able to drink regular beer.
