LIEFMANS GOUDENBAND BARREL AGED 9.5° – 3/4L

 
 
Liefmans Goudenband BA, from Liefmans ( Moortgat) brewery is the original red brown Liefmans Goudenband beer, barrel aged for 40 weeks in California Pinot Noir barrels. The complex, sour and balanced tastes makes this beer unique.
 
Liefmans Goudenband is one of the most distinctive dark beers in the world. Originally called IJzerenband (Iron Band) – a reference to the iron bands around the beer barrels – the bottle gained its champagne cork when it was renamed Liefmans Goudenband (Gold Band). Made in open vats with beer of mixed fermentation, it is left to mature for four to 12 months in the cellar. Mature beer is then fortified with younger beer, so the fermentation process starts up again.
 
Liefmans Goudenband is a beer for storing, and just keeps improving over the years like a fine wine. Even after ten years, this dark red beer tastes as fresh as ever. You’ll immediately pick up on the wonderful aromas of caramel, apple, rhubarb, cherries and malt. On the taste buds you will find hints of apple and cherries, combined with woody notes, while the aftertaste hints at nuts and dried raisins. The mildly acidic taste make this beer a perfect match for blue cheese.

Liefmans Yell’oh On The Rocks 3.8°

Lucifer 8° -1/3L

Lucifer 8° -1/3L

 

New version of Lucifer brewed by Anker (after the take-over of Riva-Liefmans by Moortgat).

 

The beer pours a slightly hazy light yellow with a large white head, and the aroma blends light malts. The aroma of the beer is largely as would be expected for a BPA with a decent showing of some fruity smells of orange, peach, and banana along with some spice aromas of pepper and clove. Has a fizzy feel. Refreshing Belgian strong ale.

The Beer of The Week: Liefmans Fruitesse 3,5°

The Beer of The Week: Liefmans Fruitesse 3,5°

A very complex fruit beer matured on cherries with the addition of extra berry flavours. Lovely deep red colour and rich fruity aroma. Pours a deeper red than average, looking like raspberry punch with lots of bubbles hanging at the bottom. Taste has a certain dryness and bitterness which helps give this a more mature stance than the average fruit beer. Refreshing and just mildly tarty mouthfeel. Sweet cherry taste, but not too killer sweet. Very nice.
