In spring you can enjoy Maneblusser Lente. This light blond beer is brewed with pilsner malt, wheat malt, oats and rye. It was seasoned with classics such as coriander, cumin and curaçao. The result? At the same time refreshing and full of character. Just like spring, it tastes mellow sweet, fruity and deliciously floral. Ideal to enjoy in the spring sun!
A little hazy yellow/golden colored beer. A nice white creamy head. Aroma of hop bitter, and strange for a blond beer, some notes of roasted malts. The taste has these notes also. the taste is malty and fruity with some sweet bitter notes in the back. A very good beer.
The Silly brewer’s latest creation, the Triple Swaf, is a blonde beer that has re-fermented in the bottle. It is based on a recipe that is 100% original. On tasting this triple you will be struck by its 8% ABV with zesty aromas of coriander, followed by a subtle bitterness that nevertheless makes its presence felt. All this comes with a full-mouthed taste and a lovely lingering finish. An exceptional beer must have an exceptional glass and so the brewery opted for a prestigious glass on a tall stem. Taste this beer and you are won over straight away.
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.
What a nice brew! A really dark brown beer with a nice beige head. Beefstock, roasted malts, dried fruits and some alcohol in the aroma. The flavor is much the same, with more emphasis on the roasted malts, tending towards coffee. Also raisins and prunes, beef-stock and some alcohol. Coffee-like finish with bitterness of the same kind. Medium mouthfeel.
Good drinking, enough complexity to savour each sip. Easily a dessert beer, not for the likings of your average. Very enjoyable Stout
A fruity blond beer with an explosion of citrus, resulting from dry-hopping with the American hops breed Cascade. In order to maintain the hoppy aroma as much as possible, the beer isn’t filtered. It is slightly cloudy and has a snow white head. It is served in a robust, accompanying glass. At the first international Belgian beer contest, the Brussels Beer Challenge, Armand Ter Dolen won a gold medal. The beer was created in honour of Ter Dolen’s co-founder Armand Desplenter, the father of current director Mieke Desplenter.
Hazy golden color, with nice white head. Aroma nice american hops, fruity. Medium body. Taste good fruits from the American hop, nice bitterness, dry end. Recommended.
Hop Ruiter (Hop Rider) has a full, almost rustic malt body, and pairs Belgian yeast-driven flavors with American assertive hoppiness. It is dry hopped, with two noble varieties which add complexity, delicacy and a bit of funk. Orange with golden hue, frothy head, bit murky, gentle carbonation. Aroma is very fruity and hoppy, with pineapple, pine, lemon. Faintest hint of carrot juice. Reminds of ipa, but it’s not that harsh. Taste starts fruity again, with notes of exotic fruit. Develops a fruity, doughy bitterness, with a distinct boozy sensation. Really a great example of the style, worth seeking out.
