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.

202-Abbaye d Aulne Triple Brune Sur Lie beer – Brasserie Val De Sambre

Dark amber color; giant creamy head. Very nice malty aroma, with notes of liquorice, vanilla, lemon, roasted malt. Really balanced, with good malt, roasted malt, light liquorice, caramel, good hops. Long final. Excellent! Strong caramel and slightly sour aroma. Very rich in flavor. Toffee and sweetness dominate the flavor to start moving to a slightly tangy bitterness and finishing mildly to moderately bitter with a component of roastedness. Despite the greater than average upfront sweetness, this beer finishes cleanly for the most part.
