Beer Tribute to the famous Antwerp Red Star LIne, this ’transatlantic’ Amber-Red ale is a ’beer-bridge’ between Belgium and the US, and is a fusion of typical Belgian Brewing tradition with US Craft Influences. Brewed using only malts (4 types) without any added sugar, generous yet balanced in Belgian and US aromatic hops, finished with Ginger and Coriander. A mild and balanced, highly drinkable yet complex ale. Rated World’s Best Pale Ale at World Beer Awards 2016, after winning numerous silver and bronze medals at other contests.
Clear amber with nice off white head that leaves some minuscule bubbles. Aromatic-hoppy, citrusy-tropical nose with mild spiciness and caramely malt. Flavor is very aromatic-hoppy with both herby and tropical hops, a slight gingery spiciness in the finish, and toffee-caramely maltiness. Well balance between fruity sweetness and the bitterness from the spices. The finish is light dry and bitter.
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.
A heavily hopped beer brewed using home-baked malt. Triporteur From Heaven is the modern version of traditional hopped ale. It is a heavenly beer brewed with home-baked BOM malt. The wheat malt in the unfiltered beer can produce a light cloudiness. The taste of Heaven remains evolving in the bottle.
Cloudy golden yellow with very big white head. Fruity and flowery hoppy aroma with notes of grapefruit and pineapple, backed by slightly bready malt and a tinge of Belgian yeasty spice. Moderately bitter flavour, medium to light bodied with a dry and crisp mouthfeel. Mildly (cara-)malty taste with fruity and slightly resiny hops; quite dry and bitter hoppy finish with an aromatically hoppy tail and a light but also rounded malty sweetness.
Clear yellow golden color, small to average sized white head that leaves fair lacing. Smell is bit bitter ( spicy side ) , some sweetness . Some yeast character . ice taste at first, fresh and refreshing with apricot, some peach, orange, a touch of sourness and a kind of off-putting metalic finish that thankfully doesn’t last for long. Nice bitterness on the aftertaste.
The Silly Sour has been part of our range ever since our brewery was founded by Marcelin Meynsbrughen in 1850. It is brewed with 13% of young beer and 87% of aged beer. The result is a complex beer, fruity and pleasantly acidic. It provides very intense and refreshing sensations.
Pours brown with ruby highlights, thin off white head. The aroma is nutty, slightly rustic yeasty note, hints of tartness. The flavor is cherry, nutty, almost medicinal at times, malty sweetness in the finish. This is a yeast driven beer with the soft acidity clearing my palate after each sip.
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.
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
