Christmas is fast approaching and winter beers are coming into their own. The Verhaeghe Brewery is also releasing a beer called ‘Barbe Noël’ (Christmas beard), which undergoes primary fermentation in cylindrical conical tanks for fourteen days, then secondary fermentation, until 10% alcohol is reached.

The palate has sweet and bitter flavours of malt, caramel, fruit, yeast and hops. The body is oily in texture and carbonation is low, giving a bitter, spiced finish.

LEFFE ROYALE ELLA 7.5°

 

From Ab-Inbev brewery

The hop selected for this Leffe Royale is the hops Ella, original hops from the Derwent Valley in Tasmania. This hops delivers woody, fruity notes of oak, black tea, passion fruit and blackcurrant. Hopping raw.
Probably the most complex Leffe Royale so far. Definitely not a main-stream beer, but high quality. Ella hops is known for it’s complex flavor that doesn’t showcase one or two main flavors and so does this beer. The hop flavor is well embedded in the overall beer aroma.

It is of course advisable to taste the Leffe Royale Ella in its chalice glass. We will appreciate it as an aperitif of course, but also at the table with your summer barbecues for example.
