Achel Blond - A pale, strong, fruity, hoppy Trappist ale from one of Belgium’s six official abbey breweries. 8.0%
Straffe Hendrik 9 - Brewed in Bruges, this tripel is a stunning example of the style. With lots of bready sweetness and shedloads of stone fruit aromas from the yeast, it’s a complex beer that starts sweet and finishes with a fizzy herbal bitterness from the saaz hop that just leaps off the tongue. 9.0%
Trappistes Rochefort 10 - The top product from the Rochefort Trappist brewery. Dark color, full and very impressive taste. Strong plum, raisin, and black currant palate, with ascending notes of vinousness and other complexities. 11.3%
Hanssens Oude Kriek - Hanssens Artisanaal Oude Kriek is the result of blending black cherries lambic of different ages, followed by a second fermentation in the bottle. Hanssens is an artisanal Gueuze-Brewer, the last fully independent Gueuze-brewer left in the Zenne Valley! 6.5%
Saison Dupont - A stone wall classic, Saison Dupont is the very definition of a saison. With aromas of fine hops, with marked bitterness, and a dry and refreshing finish, it's a thirst quencher with no equal. 6.5%
Duchesse Do Bourgogne - This Flemish red from Verhaeghe is truly unique. The amber beer is brewed in the normal fashion and then put into oak barrels for many years to take on that oak character and turn slowly sour. It has a wonderful oak and cherry aroma, with a hint of balsamic vinegar. It starts beautifully sweet and melts away into a soft, sour cherry-like beer known as a Flemish Red. 6.2%
