Cuvee des Jacobins: Gold Medal for Best Wood Aged Beer
Cuvee des Jacobins is already famous on the US beermarket, but not really known in belgium. This is a 100 % foederbeer, which means beer of spontaneous fermentation that has matured for 18 months on oak casks. Cuvée des Jacobins Rouge is a Flemish Sour Ale, red in color with a beguiling balance of malty sweetness and acidic sharpness
Vander Ghinste Oud Bruin: Gold Medal for Best Oud Bruin
Originally called "Ouden Tripel", this ancient West Flanders Brown beer has found a new élan as a regional specialty under its current name: "VanderGhinste Oud Bruin".
The main ingredients of our Vanderghinste Oud Bruin are malted barley, wheat, hops, water, and caramelized malts. These are used to brew a top-fermented beer.
Blending this beer with lambic beer aged in oak for 18 months results in this specific West Flanders Brown beer. Its typical flavour is characterized by a well-balanced, hardly noticeable sourness.
This first flavour impression is soon followed by a second pleasant discovery: a slight bitterness followed by a hint of sweetness.
