The name ‘Barista’ conjures thoughts of the fragrance of steaming coffee below a layer of expertly created froth. This may sounds rather far-fetched for a beer... However, the aromas and the flavours of caramel, cacao and roast malt match seamlessly with the ‘black gold’ and chocolate. This beer builds bridges with the world of hot beverages, with warming alcohol in the finish. One to enjoy all the year round: with a meal, in front of an open fire or on an outdoor terrace. 11% ABV
MONK'S CAFE FLEMISH SOUR ALE
Mildy tart sour ale. Light bodied with a lactic/sour nose and a bit of sweet and sour in the finish. Very refreshing!
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.
The #1 selling beer of Brewery Van Honsebrouck, Kasteel Rouge is created by blending Kasteel Donker with the liquor of cherries used for specialty chocolate and confectionery in Belgium. The union of these two excellent products creates a beer that can be best described as a chocolate-covered cherry. The yeast esters lend a spicy character which pulls the entire brew together. A color of deep black cherry lends to strawberry colored foam. Rouge is unique, decadent and sinful like the desserts we cherish and what is life without a little excess? 8.0% ABV
Aged? Many beers have a long maturation, but this one has only 24-36 months in oak barrels.
Pale? This beer has an old gold to bronze color, rather than the burgundy more common in the breweries of West Flanders. This is the ‘mother beer,’ used in various quantities to blend with the other Petrus beers, and to give them their unique and very distinctive taste. This mother beer is rather sour with a bite like the best Brut Champagnes. A connoisseur’s delight! The only one of its kind on the U.S. market. 7.3% ABV
Petrus Aged Red is constructed from a base of Double
Brown Ale. 15% Petrus Aged Pale is added to
provide a dry character to the brew and give it a slight
sour essence. Finally the brewer adds fresh cherries,
which are evident in the rich thick head. Petrus Aged
Red is a perfect blend of sweet and sour with a cherry
undertone which makes this brew remarkably drinkable at
In the 17th and18th century, ales like Piraat were highly prized and sought after by seafaring pirates and their captains. A pint a day was the ration passed down by the Captain to his crew. Piraat has a well rounded body and a wickedly rich flavour. The powerful glow builds from the inside with a deep golden hue and soft haze. With aggressive amounts of hops and malts a mild sweetness is coupled with colorful aromas fresh bread, spices, tropial fruits for a compex taste any ‘pirate' would enjoy!
Charms you with its own character, smooth taste and a unique delicious aroma. A very pleasant drink, light in alcohol with a crisp and refreshing flavor. WITTEKERKE is always served cold, but in taking your time to enjoy it, you will find more flowery and spring flavors towards the end of your glass. Although the hoppy bitterness is an underlying taste, it is never dominant. Perfect white head.
