About The Beer

The brewing traditions of Belgium are without doubt the most idiosyncratic in the world. Many of these traditions are ancient and it is a point of national pride that the Belgians have kept them alive to this day. Yeast is perhaps the most defining aspect of Belgian beer, often imparting uniquely spicey, fruity and complex flavours. They are also traditionally bottle conditioned, meaning the beers are alive and ever changing in flavour. Many have an evolution of flavour that can span years, but some can even span decades. This pack contains 12 of the most famous Belgian beers that have all influenced thousands of brewers around the world. It also contains one of our all time favourite beers, Saison Dupont Cuvee Styrian Wolf, an annual brew which is a hoppy spin on their classic and deservedly famous Saison.

Here's the line-up:

1. Tripel Karmeliet 330ml Bottle

Tripel Karmeliet is still brewed to an authentic beer recipe from 1679 originating in the former Carmelite monastery in Dendermonde. Written over 300 years ago, this recipe describes the use of three kinds of grain: wheat, oats and barley.

The name Tripel karmeliet thus refers both to its origin and its in-bottle refermentation. From many trial brews of multigrain tripels carried out at our brewery in the 90s, it appears that the particular historic combination of the 3 kinds of grain still remains the ideal blend. ABV: 8.4%

2. Rochefort 10 Quadrupel 330ml Bottle

Dominant impressions of latte coffee with powerful chocolate aromas in the nose. The alcohol esters are enveloped with hints of autumn wood, citrus zest (orange, lemon) and freshly baked biscuits. The initial taste is sweetly sinful. Beer and chocolate trapped into one single glass, a liquid milky draught with a backbone of bitter malt. The alcohol warms the throat and, in the finish, you will pick up traces of cloves, citrus, orange and mocha. The heaviest of the Rochefort beers, the 10 is a quadrupel style beer and can be recognized by its blue label. ABV: 11.3%

3. Westmalle Dubbel 330ml Bottle

Westmalle Dubbel is a dark, reddish-brown Trappist beer with a secondary fermentation in the bottle. The creamy head has the fragrance of special malt and leaves an attractive lace pattern in the glass. The flavour is rich and complex, herby and fruity with a fresh-bitter finish. ABV: 7%

4. St Bernardus 12 Quadrupel 330ml Bottle

The St.Bernardus Abt 12 is the pride of our stable, the nec plus ultra of our brewery. Abbey ale brewed in the classic 'Quadrupel' style of Belgium's best Abbey Ales. Dark with a full, ivory-colored head. It has a fruity aroma, full of complex flavours and excells because of its long bittersweet finish with a hoppy bite. (10,0% ABV) Worldwide seen as one of the best beers in the world. It's a very balanced beer, with a full-bodied taste and a perfect equilibrium between malty, bitter and sweet. One of the original recipes from the days of license-brewing for the Trappist monks of Westvleteren. ABV: 10%

5. La Chouffe Golden Strong Ale 330ml Bottle

The gnomes of Fairyland are particularly fond of this golden beer. LA CHOUFFE, with its slight hoppy taste, combining notes of fresh coriander and fruity tones, is the drink which gives them their zest for life. At least, that's what these imps say when they are thirsty. Their secret used to be jealously guarded from one generation to the next until the day they shared the recipe with humans to seal their friendship. Of all the legends from the wonderful region of the Belgian Ardennes, the tale of LA CHOUFFE is the one which most merits re-telling.  ABV: 8.0%

6. Kwak Strong Belgian Amber Ale 330ml Bottle

In Napoleon's time Pauwel Kwak was a brewer and the owner of the 'De Hoorn' inn in Dendermonde. Mail coaches stopped there every day. But at that time coachmen were not allowed to leave their coach and horses in order to have their thirst quenched along with their passengers. As a result, the inventive innkeeper had a special Kwak glass blown that could be hung on the coach. In this way the coachman had his Kwak beer safely at hand. ABV: 8.4%

7. Delirium Tremens Golden Strong Ale 330ml Bottle

The allusion to pink elephants and the choice of names is not due to chance. With a particular character, the unique taste results from triple fermentation and the use of three different yeast strains. Sweet, biscuit malt backbone, supported by pleasant warmth and spice, finishes well rounded, floral, and dry.  ABV: 8.5%

8. Hoegaarden Forbidden Fruit Strong Dark Ale 330ml Bottle

Apparently, Adam was pretty disappointed when the serpent offered him an apple. And we don’t blame him. This Forbidden Fruit is dark red, softly sweet, caressing and full in the mouth. It is brewed with roasted malt and hops, giving it a typical herbal plant aroma. By the way, it’s not forbidden to have a taste. ABV: 8.5%

9. Leffe Brune 330ml Bottle

Dinant, 1240. In the heart of the Leffe district lies an abbey well-known among the village locals. One morning, the Premonstratensian Fathers that live in the abbey hold a meeting in the refectory on a subject that concerns all the inhabitants of Dinant: how can they avoid the epidemics that spread through contaminated water? After giving the subject some serious thought, the monks come to the idea to purify the water through a process they knew only too well: by turning it into beer. Before long, the inhabitants of Dinant have the pleasure of discovering a deep, dark brown beer, and thousands of pilgrims passing through are more than happy to sample the monks’ hospitality. Leffe Brown was born. ABV: 6.5%

10. Liefmans Kriek Brut Cherry Oud Bruin 330ml Bottle

Formerly known as Liefmans Kriek and Cuvée - Brut. This classy beer represents the perfect marriage between the fresh accents and slightly acidic flavour of the black cherries. Liefmans Kriek-Brut is a mixed fermentation beer, with every hectolitre containing up to 13 kilos of fruit! Liefmans Kriek-Brut is a perfect blend of Oud Bruin and Goudenband from different vintages, and can consist of between 15 and 20 different batches of beers. The beer is matured for 18 months, bringing out the very best of its intense flavour. Liefmans Kriek-Brut is a deep reddish-brown colour, with a pale head and wood and almond notes. On the palette, you can clearly taste the slightly sweet, yet at the same time gently bitter fruit flavours. This is a beer that just oozes class… ABV: 6%

11. Brugse Zot Dubbel 330ml Bottle

Brugse Zot Dubbel is a dark brown beer, inclining towards ruby red. It is brewed with six special varieties of malt, which give the beer a rich and distinctive aroma. One can discover the scent of honey, almonds, chocolate and even brown sugar. By using the Czech Saaz hop from Zatec, the beer has a complex pallet of roasted malts and a distinctive flavour. Brugse Zot Dubbel is known to leave a warm glow in the mouth with a bitter and hoppy finish leaning towards liquorice and even coffee roast. Brugse Zot Dubbel can be paired with stews, different types of cheese and desserts prepared with bittersweet dark chocolate. ABV: 7.5%

12. Saison Dupont Cuvee Styrian Wolf 330ml Bottle

A special dry-hopped version of the brewery's world famous Saison Dupont. This version features Styrian Wolf hops - a Slovakian variety known for its exceptional tropical fruit notes - to complement the Saison's iconic peppery flavour. ABV: 6.5%
