The Belgian Witbier is a refreshing, elegant, tasty, moderate strength wheat-based ale. With a pleasant malty-sweet grain flavor (often with a honey and/or vanilla character) and a zesty, orange-citrusy fruitiness. Refreshingly crisp with a dry, often tart, finish. Can have a low bready wheat flavor.
The Belgian Saison is a pale, refreshing, highly-attenuated, moderately-bitter, moderate-strength Belgian ale with a very dry finish.
Medium-high fruity and spicy flavors, supported by a low to medium soft malt character, often with some grainy flavors. Bitterness is typically moderate to high, although sourness can be present in place of bitterness.
The Oud bruin style or Flemish old brown ale is a dark, full-bodied beer with a lot of soft maillard compound.
The special character of this beer comes from the dark malts, long boiling and top fermentation with a very moderate, mild Lactobacillus infection.
Maturation in Steel tanks (20°C).
The Flanders Red Ale is a sour, fruity, red wine-like Belgian style ale with interesting supportive malt flavors and fruit complexity. The dry finish and tannin completes the mental image of a fine red wine. Long aging and blending of young and well-aged beer often occurs, adding to the smoothness and complexity of the beer.
The Belgian Triple belongs to the list of great beers of the world. Very well balanced between a full maltiness mouthfeel, a hoppy flavor and a fruity ester aroma of the top fermentation. Most tripels are so strong in aroma that tasters say: the splendid combination of yeast, malt and a fruity nose. Triples are refermented in the bottle, with special sugars. The amount of alcohol is increased by the addition of crystal sugar during the boil.
Belgian stout is a unique beer between the Irish – British stout and the German – Austrian dark beers.
The beer is still very drinkable, not a real full mouthfeel, and not sweet. On the other hand the taste is not harsh or astringent. Higher in alcohol and medium in bitterness, this beer is even for pale beer drinkers a great favorite. It’s an ideal beer to play with a lot of Dark Dingemans' malts.
The Belgian Quad is a dark, complex, very strong Belgian ale with a delicious blend of malt richness, dark fruit flavors, and spicy elements. Complex, rich, smooth and dangerous. Belgian yeast strains prone to production of higher alcohols, esters, and sometimes phenolics are commonly used. Added complexity due to the addition of caramelized sugar syrup or unrefined sugars during the boil.
The Belgian Pale Ale is a top fermented beer. The color is gold to copper and it can have a caramel or toasted malt flavor. The style is characterized by low but noticeable hop bitterness, flavor and aroma. The Belgian Pale Ale is inspired by British pale ales, which are very sessionable.
The Belgian style - dubbel ranges from brown to very dark in color. These beers have a malty sweetness and can have cocoa and caramel aromas and flavors. Hop bitterness is medium-low to medium. Yeast-generated fruity esters (especially banana) can be apparent. “Dubbel” meaning “double,” this beer is not so big in intensity as its sibling the Belgian style - quadrupel.
The Belgian Blond Ale has a similar strength as a dubbel and a similar character as a Belgian Strong Golden Ale or a Tripel, although its a bit sweeter and not as bitter. Often it has a lager like character, which give it a cleaner profile in comparison to other beer styles. Smooth, light to moderate Pils malt sweetness initially with some lightly caramelized sugar or honey-like sweetness on the palate. Often it has a little spicyness coming from the hops or other ingredients.
