Silly Sour 5.5°

The Silly Sour has been part of our range ever since our brewery was founded by Marcelin Meynsbrughen in 1850. It is brewed with 13% of young beer and 87% of aged beer. The result is a complex beer, fruity and pleasantly acidic. It provides very intense and refreshing sensations.
Pours brown with ruby highlights, thin off white head. The aroma is nutty, slightly rustic yeasty note, hints of tartness. The flavor is cherry, nutty, almost medicinal at times, malty sweetness in the finish. This is a yeast driven beer with the soft acidity clearing my palate after each sip.

Petrus RoodBruin 5.5°

Petrus Roodbruin is a blend of 33% Petrus Aged Pale, pure foeder beer that has been aged for two years in oak foeders, and 67% young brown beer. In this blend, the young dark beer contributes the reddish-brown colour, and the Aged Pale contributes the slightly sour flavour. Petrus Roodbruin is a typical traditional Flemish red ale as tradition dictates.
Dark ruby red – red as wine. The style is also called the Burgundy of Flanders, and is a very typical and common beer in West Flanders Created by a secret blend of the aged and sour ‘mother beer’ with fresh brewed sweeter beer, this beer produces a sour-sweet balance, set off by the underlying bitterness of the hops. A discovery! The best in its style! Light in alcohol, exciting complex flavors and tastes come to the forefront. Although serving cold is recommended, taking time to drink it will release more aromas towards the end of your glass.

Rodenbach ALEXANDER 5.6°

Rodenbach Alexander was brewed for the first time in 1986 on the occasion of Alexander Rodenbach’s 200th birthday and is now back by popular demand to the delight of beer lovers in Belgium and abroad. It is a blend of 2/3rd aged Rodenbach (100% 2 year aged beer) with 1/3rd younger ale, macerated with sour cherries. The natural flavour and taste of sour cherries brings a perfect match between the sour beer and the red fruit. Its aftertaste is reminiscent of a Burgundy wine. And its freshness makes this beer the perfect aperitif or accompaniment to cheeses or dessert. Note: The 2016 version has the abv of 5.6%.

The beer Cuvée des Jacobins is unblended old lambic, aged for at least 18 months in (French) oak barrels from the cognac region. These oak barrels are called ’Foeders’ in Dutch. It has a robust character but is beautiful and sophisticated with a full body and overtones of vanilla, dried cherry, stone fruit and cocoa. It is a complex, beautiful sour beer. Pours an intense ruby red, with a very small pink head which slowly fades, but leaves good lacing. Nose is sour cherry and balsamic vinegar. Taste follows the nose. A delightful sour lambic.
