Cazeau Saison 5°

From Cazeau brewery

 
« A true seasonal beer, as refreshing as it should be! Taste it in the summer, sitting at a terrace table …  » Originally, season beer was a beer brewed before the summer and intended for summer-season farmhands. It had low alcohol content and a marked bitterness that made it really refreshing.
 
The brewery wanted to offer a truly seasonal Season with production limited in time.
 
As Laurent Agache’s parents had created a cottage-type aperitif based on fresh elder tree flowers, greatly appreciated for family festivities, the brewers have tried to use that flower for producing our Season.
 
The elder flower, combined with the Sterling hop, was wonderful right from the first tests: the bitterness of the hops underlined by the flower brought a new and really nice freshness.
 
The following year, shortly after the flowering of the elder tree, the Saison Cazeau was launched on the market.

Leffe Caractere 9°

 From AB-Inbev brewery

Character by Leffe, beer brewed with whiskey.
 
A delicate and unique manufacturing process.
 
Character by Leffe: a unique beer that has matured for four weeks on wood chips macerated in a Scotch whiskey.
 
To brew Character by Leffe, the master brewers have elaborated an unprecedented recipe. They started from the observation that the flavors of vanilla and clove brought by Leffe’s yeast combine perfectly with the woody aromas. To create this alliance, they plunged oak wood chips into Scotch whiskey, dried them. And finally deposited them in a vat of ale for maturation. After numerous experiments, master brewers discovered that four weeks was the ideal time needed for wood chips to diffuse their flavors in beer. This sophisticated brewing process is one of the reasons why Character by Leffe is so unique and offered in limited edition.

Rince Cochon Red 7.5°

Discover the little sister of the Rince Cochon, brewed for a long time under the name of “The Rince Cochon”, the Rince Cochon Rouge (Red) is today brewed by Haacht in Belgium. This beer is very different from the blond version, since this new Rince Cochon is flavored with red fruit, pours a red color and wears a reworked label on red tones. The character of this beer lies in its dark pink colour reminiscent of red fruit.
However, compared to most fruity beers, this one isn’t light and features an ABV of 7.5%. The whole is topped by a thick, long-lasting and slightly pink head. It challenges the nose with fruity aromas that one can try to guess. The presence of alcohol is obvious. In the mouth, the flavours are sweet and fruity with notes of strawberries, cherries (the beer is produced with cherry juice) and raspberries. One can also sense the presence of hops, barley and malt. Do not wait any longer and … Try this fruity beer amazingly strong for a beer of that kind. You can even pour it in its special Red Beer Glass. Probably, one of the most beautiful glasses.

Rebelse Strop 6.9°

From Roman brewery.

Brett yeast.
The brewers decided to take a different approach with Rebelse Strop. In particular, they opted for a fairly unusual and stubborn yeast variety: Brett. This obstinate variety causes the beer to continue developing over the course of time. Along with dry hopping, where the hops are added in the fermentation phase, this feature gives the beer a splendid aroma and a fantastic taste.
Tasting Nose/aromas: Earthy aromas merge into a light fruity smell. Flavour: The unruly Brett yeast causes the taste of the beer to keep developing long after bottling. This beer that is rather young gets a more complex flavour: fruity, hopbitter and with a subtle acidity. In time, Rebelse Strop gets a slightly softer, rounder flavour.
