De Poes blond is an unfiltered blond high-fermentation beer with secondary fermentation in the bottle. The beer is fruity with a slight sense of alcohol at the back of the tongue. By using very high-quality bitterness and aroma hops, we ensure that the bitterness is well-balanced. The used herbs provide a pleasant freshness and the reference to flowers and citrus.
Clear golden with a large white head. Aroma is sweet and fruity with banana, peach, pear, honey, grain, slight spicy. Taste is medium sweet malty with banana and pears, very soft bitter, slight spicy. Finish is sweet with white bread, peach, pear, a touch of almond and alcohol. Medium bodied, soft to average carbonation.
Papegaei is a blond beer with an alcohol volume of 8%. The beer is lightly drinkable and has a rich bouquet of hops. Papegaei is brewed with fresh hop flowers, which means that the flowers are dried but not turned into an extract or pellets, so they keep their natural form (and taste!). The mash of Papegaei contains barley, wheat and oats. Papegaei is a top fermented beer with a second fermentation in the bottle. The beer is neither filtered nor pasteurized. Papegaei is brewed and bottled by Adam Verstraete at the Deca brewery in Woesten.
They love experimenting at the City Brewery! With multiple, sometimes slightly eccentric test brews as a result! Beers that are normally brewed only once and available for a limited time only. But Lost in Spice, the fourth test brew, just seemed to hit the nail on the head. And because it quickly earned such a loyal following, the brewery decided to make it a permanent fixture alongside the Bolleke, Triple d’Anvers and Wild Jo.
How did it all begin? The Master Brewer, Sven was completely Lost in Spice when instead of hops, he loaded our hop gun with spices. At which point dry hopping made way for “dry spicing” with ginger and cardamom. In addition, orange peel, coriander and lemon were also added to the mash tun, resulting in a refreshing, pithy blond beer of 5.2% alcohol with fruity notes of citrus and a spicy aftertaste. Lost in Spice lets you taste the sun all year round!
Limited Edition. Single Batch. Aged with Acacia shavings
An amber ale with red and coppery tones, this Barley Wine really stands out thanks to its floral notes, with a hint of freshness studded with caramelized, roasted flavours. The selection of special malts brings out a touch of chocolate, combined with a little bit of coconut. The tannin is brought out by macerated acacia shavings that add a hint of vanilla. If kept in the cellar, this exceptional beer will become even smoother and more striking.
