We are nothing if not scientific, and that is really the only logical conclusion to be drawn from two indisputable facts:
A) French wines give Foodgoat a splitting headache, previously attributed to sulfites and compounded by Francophile snobbery, and ...
B) French beer (namely, the Kronenbourg 1664) gives Foodgoat a throbbing headache.
I expected French beer to be dark and earthy, but the Kronenbourg was light, very light - like an American beer. It tasted fine, but not long after finishing off a bottle, the French allergy symptoms would start to manifest themselves. Headache and a general nauseous feeling that would last til morning.
Clearly, Foodgoat is allergic to France.
