About The Beer
Format: 330ml Bottle
Smoked eel has long been a specialty of the Siphon restaurant. The eels are smoked in a hut beside the brewery. We huddle around the ashes on Autumn brew days.
Cendre is Black India Saison. It’s a blend of styles from a variety of countries, with the dark malt character of a British stout, the seductive fruity profile of an American IPA and the drying citrus qualities of a Belgian Saison.
Its flavours jump about across a wide spectrum: combining the chocolatey notes of our Munich, Special B and Chocolate malts; the piney, resinous, melon-like hop notes of Citra; and the zesty attenuation of a Saison yeast.
It’s a beer brewed by a Flemish brewery, but named in French. It's not intended to be confusing, but rather a statement of who we are.
