On the nose, notes of black tea, jasmine and wood are equally predominant. On the palate, the woodiness cloaks the bread crust, roasting, mocha and Cognac aromas as well as the empyreumatical notes.

For this second batch, a mixture of barrels has been used. 38% of French oak – second utilization 22% of American oak – second utilization 22% of new cognac barrels 18% of new chestnut.
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. The Bootjestbier 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.
To celebrate the 10 year anniversary of the revival of the Oud Beersel Brewery, the brewmaster has an idea. He transposed his blending skills on blending “Ale” with “Lambic” to create Bersalis Sourblend.
The Bersalis Sourbland is a beer that will conquer the hearts of people that yet need to fall in love with the traditional Lambic beers.
Bersalis Sourblend is a refreshing sour blonde ale with the malty character of a Belgian blonde ale. And the complex aromas of traditional Lambic.
The lactic fermentation of the Lambic adds a gently sour touch to the beer, making the beer very refreshing while still having the main body of a top fermented beer. The Brettanomyces originating from the Lambic contribute further to the profoundness of this mixed fermented sour ale.
This Bertinchamps blanche is very cloudy pale yellow beer, big solid creamy white head, pretty stable, adhesive. Smell is typical witbier.

Overall, a delicious wheat beer. Quite a classic.

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.
