Slurfke Bruin 8.5°

Slurfke Bruin 8.5°

 
 
Slurfke needs no explanation to anyone who watches television in Flanders. If you keep up with the popular soap called ‘Thuis’ (‘Home’), broadcast daily on Flemish television, you will know all about the adventures of its main character, Eddy Van Noteghem. One fine day, Eddy, who is known for his love of beer, unearths a beer recipe compiled by his late Dad. He invites his group of friends to start home brewing.. The Slurfke is born. The hobby brewers gain first-hand experience of the brewing trade and soon find out it involves far more than they had thought. The Slurfke is a success; the friends purchase a brewery and set up their own business. However, the story does not end well. The friends argue and their joint endeavour is no more. This fictitious beer has now become a reality. Numerous ‘Thuisfans’, as fans of the soap are called, wanted to know where they could taste this beer. This inspired Castle Brewery Van Honsebrouck to start brewing it based on the original recipe from the television series. The name ‘Slurfke’ means little trunk. It is a robust craft beer of the ‘dubbel’ type, dark in colour and perfect as a degustation beer. The addition of roast malts not only provides the dark colour, but also the aromas and tastes of caramel and coffee. The proprietary yeast accounts for fruity aromas of banana and vanilla.

170- Loterbol Bruin beer – Brouwerij Loterbol

Available online at http://store.belgianshop.com/special-beers/965-loterbol-bruin-8-13l.html

A darker, slightly sweeter beer than its blond counterpart, Loterbol Bruin is a delicious strong Belgian ale, brewed in tiny batches at Belgium’s smallest brewery. Highly drinkable, even at 8% alcohol, this beer lives up to its name, which translates roughly to ’prankster.’ Unlike most Belgian beers of this strength, Loterbol Bruin is not loaded with candi sugar. It does not want for malty sweetness, but it is superbly balanced with enough hops to stand up to the high alcohol.

176- Vanderghinste Oud Bruin beer – Bockor Brewery

Available online at http://store.belgianshop.com/flanders-red/589-bellegems-bruin-55-14l.html

Originally called « Ouden Tripel », this ancient West Flanders Brown beer has found a new élan as a regional specialty under its current name: « Bellegems bruin ». The main ingredients of our Bellegems Bruin are malted barley, wheat, hops, water, and caramelized malts. These are used to brew a bottom-fermented beer. Blending this beer with lambic beer aged in oak for 18 months results in this specific West Flanders Brown beer. Its typical flavour is characterized by a well-balanced, hardly noticeable sourness. This first flavour impression is soon followed by a second pleasant discovery: a slight bitterness followed by a hint of sweetness.
