Featured Beers of the Month

Duchesse de Bourgogne (Flemish Red)

“Duchesse de Bourgogne” is an ale of mixed fermentation. It is a sweet-fruity ale with a pleasant fresh aftertaste. This ale is brewed with roasted malts and with hops with a low bitterness. After the main fermentation and the lagering , the “Duchesse de Bourgogne” matures further for many months in oak casks. The tannins in the oak give the “Duchesse de Bourgogne” its fruity character. “Duchesse de Bourgogne” has a full, sweet and fresh taste : it is a ruby red jewel of 6.2 % alc. vol.         

Witterkerke Wild Grapefruit (Wit)

Gulden Draak Triple Ale

A dark brown Triple Ale, which makes it an exception among the Belgian Triples.  The second fermentation offers the nice creamy head and the full body of the centuries old brewers yeast. It is a beer that you can actually nimble to adventure the complex taste.  Gulden Draak balances a natural malt toffee-like sweetness with a mellow happiness and some hoppy accents.  The aroma is round, sweet and hides the 10.5% alcohol per volume. Another name for this type of complex beer is: “Barley Wine.”  You sip and enjoy this beer slowly, as a treat you definitely deserve.
