LIEFMANS GOUDENBAND BARREL AGED 9.5° – 3/4L

 
 
Liefmans Goudenband BA, from Liefmans ( Moortgat) brewery is the original red brown Liefmans Goudenband beer, barrel aged for 40 weeks in California Pinot Noir barrels. The complex, sour and balanced tastes makes this beer unique.
 
Liefmans Goudenband is one of the most distinctive dark beers in the world. Originally called IJzerenband (Iron Band) – a reference to the iron bands around the beer barrels – the bottle gained its champagne cork when it was renamed Liefmans Goudenband (Gold Band). Made in open vats with beer of mixed fermentation, it is left to mature for four to 12 months in the cellar. Mature beer is then fortified with younger beer, so the fermentation process starts up again.
 
Liefmans Goudenband is a beer for storing, and just keeps improving over the years like a fine wine. Even after ten years, this dark red beer tastes as fresh as ever. You’ll immediately pick up on the wonderful aromas of caramel, apple, rhubarb, cherries and malt. On the taste buds you will find hints of apple and cherries, combined with woody notes, while the aftertaste hints at nuts and dried raisins. The mildly acidic taste make this beer a perfect match for blue cheese.

Delirium Tremens 5L IPS Keg

 
The most successful product of the brewery Huyghe in a 5L keg! Delirium Tremens is made of 3 different Belgian kinds of yeast. Huyghe Brewery has been in the business for 350 years and its benchmark beer is no less than this excellent one. It has conquered the whole world in less than 10 years thanks to its famous emblem: the elephant.
 
In the glass, Delirium Tremens pours a golden and slightly cloudy colour topped by a white head. It releases fruity and spicy aromas enhanced by a hint of alcohol. Scents of clove, pepper and coriander precede an odour of alcohol that warms up our nose; just before apple and citrus fruits aromas release their power. In the mouth, it starts with a spicy impression and flavours reminiscent of wheat beers.
Then only strike the herbaceous flavours of hops and fruity flavours of malt. The alcohol is sensed during the whole tasting, but its presence is more noticeable at the back of the mouth along with a slight acidity
Enjoy this tasty beer to the fullest by serving it in its Delirium beer glass!

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.
