Produced at Mont-Saint-Jean farm, in limited quantities, the new Récolte Hiver beer has enriched the Waterloo range. This farmhouse beer is a real local product – like its big sister, the Waterloo Récolte. Fresh and elegant, this brown ale is light and hoppy. Brown sugar and roasted malt gives it a dark colour and very nice caramelized end notes on the pallate. This is an outstanding craft beer, as refreshing as it is surprising in its similarity to the famous beer drunk by the English soldiers in 1815 during the famous battle. A real achievement in brewing …. and history!
As the name says, Brewer’s Desire is the beer that the master brewer has dreamed of brewing for a long time, a nectar of the greatest rarity…
This 100% malt beer (pale malt and lightly roasted malt) is brewed with aged hops and boiled for an extended period of time. Different yeasts from the Pajottenland region, that have been isolated and then cultivated, are added to the cooling vessel. The famous Brettanomyces enter also into action, and do their secret & mysterious work.
This unique brew is allowed to mature for 2 years in oak barrels before being bottled, unfiltered, to undergo a final secondary fermentation with the same yeast. A single precious batch has been produced, to be shared among demanding connoisseurs.
Willem Van Herreweghen, master brewer, and Anthony Martin are delighted to present the result of this work and their passion.
This beer received a Gold medal in the prestigious Brussels Beer Challenge 2016.

« Revolucion » explodes totally when tequila enters on stage a little bit as the big winner but also tolerant of a conventional continuation of more traditional ingredients excluding by no means the presence of a bitterness in final but discreet thanks to a velvety hopping. It is somewhat as if the « XPLOSION REVOLUCION » unwound its delicious colored carpet with all the honours.
This beer is appreciated all year round, thirst-quenching by hot weather and reinvigorating by the warm preciousness of its tastes in case the weather report would be rather fresh. It is a real happiness itself, calling up to the pleasures of the tastes, delighted that you can now enjoy it.
It possesses a conclusion of which we do not grow tired, and in case of « Revolucion », it is rather comforting. This is what it will make it so close to you and will leave you no more than a mouthful. This beer is made to give the sense of real life as an ode to joy. Here is the recipe which will amaze you every putsch no matter the state of mind of the palace!
« VIVA LA REVOLUCION! ».
Hazy grass green beer! Good white head. Light crisp palate, semi dry. Very light and pleasant sourness come sherbet. Light pale malt with a pinch of spice. Nice light touch of green tea! Trace of lemon – lime in the semi dry finish. Highly unusual and refreshing and tasty.

Tournay Triple is seductively strong … Triple beers traditionally contain more malt, and are therefore stronger. But the original idea behind Tournay Triple was to produce a very hopped beer rather than a strong one.
When creating all their beers, the brewers want to preserve a balance between the tastes. And to ensure that each ingredient can be expressed without crushing the others.
To respond to the bitterness of the hops, they therefore had to brew a solidly-built beer, whence the choice of a high alcohol content (more than 9% ABV). Although the brewers had quickly succumbed to the very particular flavours of the New Zealand hop, Nelson Sauvin, many tests were necessary to find the right marriage with other hops, including the English Fuggles, and Cascade, which is the hallmark of all their beers except for Saison.
The perfecting of our Triple was therefore a labour of Hercules but it was well worth the trouble!

De Ranke Back to Black 9.5°
English style stout, hopped with Citra and Simcoe. Called Citra Stout before it got the definitive name.
Very dark brown beer, small creamy beige head, stable, pretty adhesive. Has a dark roast aroma with some burnt sugar and definite citrus poking through. Nice flavor if slightly thin. Lightly sweet with some roast, light plastic, burnt cocoa, and some burnt citrus rind. Medium bodied with fine to average carbonation. Burnt roast malt finish, with some wood, scorched earth, cocoa, mild citrus and grass. Easy drinker, lots of flavor. Good stuff.
