The Belgian Brewers Beers

Brewing great beer takes time… ‘brew day’ to ‘glass’ takes about 2 months.

Tripel


What The Belgian Brewer Says…

I know I shouldn’t have a favourite, but I do – no, I’m not talking about one of my children (that really would be wrong), I’m talking about the Tripel! I spent years perfecting this recipe, endlessly brewing and tasting, brewing and tasting, brewing and… well you get the picture. Sounds arduous right? Somehow I stuck at it, and finally the hard work paid off!

This Tripel has all the traditional characteristics that made Belgian beers famous world wide, yet it’s brewed right here in the uk. It is strong, yet light, it is powerful yet delicate, it is complex, yet easy to drink.

On the nose, it reminds me of freshly baked blackcurrant tarts straight from the oven, but the sweetness is perfectly balanced with the refreshing hints of orange peel and gentle notes of coriander on the palate.

I love to pair this beer with any poultry or game, but if you try it with duck l’orange and brace yourself for a taste explosion!

saison


What The Belgian Brewer Says…

Saison beers in Belgium are my ’go to’ beer of choice after a hard day at work. A little lighter than a Tripel, slightly more delicate but always refreshing.

Traditionally Saison beers were brewed in farmhouses, often in the cooler months, and saved for the seasonal workers (saisonniers) to drink in the hot summer months as a refreshing and clean source of hydration!

My Saison is a fabulous example (not that I like to blow my own trumpet much!). It has a sharp citrusy backbone which is complemented by delicate honey notes. It still has a relatively high alcohol content for a Saison, but pretty sure you’ll savour it from the first drop to the last!

Enjoy this beer on its own, or you can pair it with a something rich like a mushroom risotto, or a creamy cheese like Old Amsterdam – a winning combination!

Wheat or Wit


What The Belgian Brewer Says…

Growing up a few miles from Hoegaarden (‘ne witte’ as we called it), Wheat Beer has long been a staple part of my ‘beer diet’. I was first introduced to ‘ne witte van Hoegaarden’ at the tennis club – I would watch my mum play, and after the game she would enjoy a glass or two on the terrace… she would add a slice of lemon to it and let me have a little taste from time to time – I couldn’t imagine a more refreshing drink on a hot summer’s day!
Brewing my Wheat Beer has been tough, balancing the coriander, orange peel and natural sourness of the wheat is not easy, but perseverance paid off and resulted in this fabulous beer which takes me back home with every sip!
This is a light refreshing beer, crisp and zesty with a dry slightly tart finish. Best drunk after a game of tennis with your mum, but failing that, it’s great with seafood ‘Mosselen Friet’ (mussels and fries) – an absolute favourite!

Dubbel



What The Belgian Brewer Says…

I like my beer, the way I like my coffee – ‘Strong and Dark’, and this beer hits the spot!

I stumbled across this recipe for a Dubbel in an old brewing book from a monastery. I was surprised to see the addition of caramelised sugar… could that work I thought to myself? What the heck, let’s give it a go!

Sure enough those monks clearly knew what they were doing! A few brews later, adjusting  some of the temperatures, and tweaking the grains, and I had the body I was looking for… in the beer at least!

This top quality Dubbel, has a rich chocolatey nose with a smattering of toasted barley, on the palate the rest of the complex demerara comes through. Despite being aged for at least 10 weeks, it holds a fresh vibrant finish.

This Dubbel would be best paired with red meat, but make sure you save some beer for dessert so you can try it with something rich dark and chocolatey to show it off at its very best!

This Beer won the first prize at Brewcon wold series in London in the Belgian Strong Category

Pale Ale



What The Belgian Brewer Says…

I was 17 when I first drank a Belgian Pale Ale. The beer was remarkably easy to drink, typically lightly hopped and between 4.5% and 6% abv. Although I was slightly confused why it was called ‘Pale’, when actually it is quite rich in colour. Despite this, I knew it was going to feature regularly on nights out in the coming years.
When I became an established brewer, a good traditional Pale Ale in my repertoire was a ‘must’ for me, and I had a lot of fun developing this recipe – it took several trips back home, in depth conversations with brewers late into the nights, and copious tasting sessions. Thus eventually my ‘Pale Ale’ was born!
This is a light and toasty, easy to drink session ale with hints of nutmeg and caramel, with a long smooth deliciously malty finish.
I love to pair this beer with lamb or pork dishes… sausage and mash anyone? It’s a perfect companion.

Raspberry


What The Belgian Brewer Says…

A few years ago one of my good friends said to me “Wouldn’t it be nice to have a fruit beer that actually tasted as good on the palate, as it smells to the nose!”.

As you can tell from that quote, this friend was a bit particular! This led me to do some taste testing of my own and sure enough, he was right! I wondered why this would be? The answer I’m afraid is simple… a distinct lack of real fruit!

However, I knew with the right quantities of real fruit, paired with a perfectly crafted beer, and plenty of development, something wonderful could be created… years later my ‘Raspberry Beer’ was born!

I’m very proud to say that this beer truly does taste as good as it smells! It has a distinctive natural aroma bursting with ripe raspberries. On the palate the beer has a bold structure which is complex but well balanced, with a deliciously long dry finish.

Enjoy it on a summer’s day in a Champagne flute, or as an aperitif at an evening dinner party.

Cherry


What The Belgian Brewer Says…

A deep crimson beer, naturally coloured from the whole cherries in the fermentation process. It has a long dry slightly soured finish with unsurprisingly ripe cherry notes on the nose. This beer shouts magnificence at its best!

Pinot


What The Belgian Brewer Says…

Our first collaboration beer with our good friends from Oakengrove Vineyards. Set in the beautiful rolling hills surrounding Henley-on-Thames, Oakengrove know a thing or two about Pinot Noir – they have been growing it there for over 15 years, and make a fabulous sparkling wine from it! Phil (the owner) said “the Pinot Noir grape would be the best suited to infuse with beer due to its delicate aromas (so not to be overpowering), and that as wine it is well suited to being chilled – it is after all one of the three main grapes in Champagne.”
After carefully crafting a recipe, this beer has come out just as we wanted it – On the nose it displays all the typical Pinot Noir characteristics of blackcurrants and strawberries, yet on the palate the mouthfeel is of a full bodied wheat beer. It has a slightly sour finish so best to pair it with some rich and creamy blue cheese or some salty cured meats and sit back, relax and enjoy this spectacular fusion of grapes and grains!
