De Poes blond is an unfiltered blond high-fermentation beer with secondary fermentation in the bottle. The beer is fruity with a slight sense of alcohol at the back of the tongue. By using very high-quality bitterness and aroma hops, we ensure that the bitterness is well-balanced. The used herbs provide a pleasant freshness and the reference to flowers and citrus.
Clear golden with a large white head. Aroma is sweet and fruity with banana, peach, pear, honey, grain, slight spicy. Taste is medium sweet malty with banana and pears, very soft bitter, slight spicy. Finish is sweet with white bread, peach, pear, a touch of almond and alcohol. Medium bodied, soft to average carbonation.
Papegaei is a blond beer with an alcohol volume of 8%. The beer is lightly drinkable and has a rich bouquet of hops. Papegaei is brewed with fresh hop flowers, which means that the flowers are dried but not turned into an extract or pellets, so they keep their natural form (and taste!). The mash of Papegaei contains barley, wheat and oats. Papegaei is a top fermented beer with a second fermentation in the bottle. The beer is neither filtered nor pasteurized. Papegaei is brewed and bottled by Adam Verstraete at the Deca brewery in Woesten.
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!
A new IPA! IPA is the abbreviation for the India Pale Ale beer category: amber-coloured beers with more hops, a higher alcohol content and a bitter flavour. Think you already know what our IPA is going to taste like? Then think again! Because the SUPER 8 IPA is a new, refreshing interpretation of this style of beer.
Hop! In balance
Most IPAs combine a large quantity of hops with a high alcohol content. With its 6% alcohol volume and wonderful citrus and grapefruit notes, the SUPER 8 IPA is even more refined and balanced. This means that you get all the characteristics of the style, without these being taken too far.
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
Voted the ‘Best Belgian Blond Beer of Wallonia’ in 2012, and one of the ‘Best Belgian Triples’ by the trade magazine Vino. Goliath is brewed according to the traditional method used by our ancestors with the finest malts and hops. With its rich balanced taste, Goliath triple is a source of vitality and strength that will delight the true beer connoisseur.
Ath, Belgium, the City of Giants, is famous for its annual Parade of Giants. Every year, Goliath – whose name is pronounced ‘Gouyasse’ in the local dialect – leads the parade. The Brasserie des Géants (Giants’ Brewery), in Ath, didn’t think long before naming its first brew ‘Gouyasse.’
Goliath is 9% alcohol by volume, a little more red in the face than your average tripel (almost an amber, really), nicely balanced with a bracing hop note versus a solid malt wallop. Goliath is the only Tripel in Belgium that is all-malt – without any sugar or other additives in. (Everyone else uses some sugar to ‘thin out’ their Tripels, which gives them alcohol, without the body that you normally get from malt.) That means Goliath starts out a bit sweeter than some, but over time, as the live yeast in the bottle do their work, it gets drier and more punchy. The first batch, after about half a year in the bottle, is about where we want it, but it will probably become a greater beer as time goes by. We recommend that you check in on Goliath every once in a while.
