As tribute to a visionary brewer and especially as an purebred and innovative entrepreneur a new beer was launched. The new regional product “ALFRED“ is a yellow gold ale of high fermentation, brewed with malt and hops of Belgian origin.

Christmas is fast approaching and winter beers are coming into their own. The Verhaeghe Brewery is also releasing a beer called ‘Barbe Noël’ (Christmas beard), which undergoes primary fermentation in cylindrical conical tanks for fourteen days, then secondary fermentation, until 10% alcohol is reached.
Poured into a glass, it reveals a golden-blond hue with a white head where aromas of spice, coriander, caramel, wood, yeast and fruit prevail. The palate has sweet and bitter flavours of malt, caramel, fruit, yeast and hops. The body is oily in texture and carbonation is low, giving a bitter, spiced finish.
The hop selected for this Leffe Royale is the hops Ella, original hops from the Derwent Valley in Tasmania. This hops delivers woody, fruity notes of oak, black tea, passion fruit and blackcurrant. Hopping raw.
Probably the most complex Leffe Royale so far. Definitely not a main-stream beer, but high quality. Ella hops is known for it’s complex flavor that doesn’t showcase one or two main flavors and so does this beer. The hop flavor is well embedded in the overall beer aroma.
It is of course advisable to taste the Leffe Royale Ella in its chalice glass. We will appreciate it as an aperitif of course, but also at the table with your summer barbecues for example.
« A true seasonal beer, as refreshing as it should be! Taste it in the summer, sitting at a terrace table … » Originally, season beer was a beer brewed before the summer and intended for summer-season farmhands. It had low alcohol content and a marked bitterness that made it really refreshing.
The brewery wanted to offer a truly seasonal Season with production limited in time.
As Laurent Agache’s parents had created a cottage-type aperitif based on fresh elder tree flowers, greatly appreciated for family festivities, the brewers have tried to use that flower for producing our Season.
The elder flower, combined with the Sterling hop, was wonderful right from the first tests: the bitterness of the hops underlined by the flower brought a new and really nice freshness.
The following year, shortly after the flowering of the elder tree, the Saison Cazeau was launched on the market.
