Beer Taras Boulba 4.5% Senne | Session IPA
€40,00 Regular price €50,00 Sale price
Belgique Bio Blonde Bouteille Bruxelles en stock IPA

Taras Boulba is a light lager, generously hopped with the finest aromatic hops, giving it a very refreshing character and a fragrance reminiscent of citrus. The nose offers delicate aromas of spices, malt, hops and lemon. You can even smell slight notes of cookies, caramel and a bit of vanilla. Taras Boulba has a blonde colour with white foam. In the mouth, you can feel the bitterness present. You can also taste notes of caramel and lemon. It is a beer full of character but also thirst-quenching and refreshing. The finale of the beer is dry. 

Though Taras Boulba has now become many people's favourite beer, it had a rough start. First, Taras Boulba beer was created only for the brewers and their friends. The brewers claimed that they were only drinking their other famous beer, the Zinnebir, and they needed something lighter. Thus, Taras Boulba was born. After only drinking it by themselves, the brewers decided to start selling Taras Boulba locally. The problem was that the bitter beers had not yet made their name in Belgium. Only De Ranke brewery, whose niche is bitter beers, was in the market. The brewers had to fight hard and talk a lot with local beer bars and pubs to get their beer out. Finally, their beer has not only become popular locally but also internationally. 

Like Taras Boulba, all the beers of brewery de la Senne are brewed in a traditional way: unfiltered, unpasteurized and without additives.

Taras Boulba is also the favourite beer of Beercrush creator Florian. 

 

History and origin of the Taras Boulba beer name. 

 

The name Taras Boulba refers to a novel written by Nikolai Gogol. The novel is the story of Taras Boulba, who goes with his two sons to war against the Polish. One of the sons is in love with a Polish girl. The son helps the girl get some food during the war. Once Taras finds out about this, he kills his son. The brewers use this as a reference to the struggle between Flemings and Walloons in Belgium. 

 

Want to know more about Taras Boulba beer? Here are some of the most frequently asked questions answered:

 

  • What does the Taras Boulba beer label mean?

The Taras Boulba beer label is also related to the novel by Nikolai Gogol. On the label, you can see two men in front of a circus. A father and a son. The father is angry and holding a big barrel above his head, ready to throw it at his son while yelling "Smeirlap!". There is a comment on the label in the Brussels dialect. The comment states: "Behold, Taras Boulba is furiously angry. His son has married a Walloon!" The label is an interpretation of the novel, but with a Belgian twist reflecting the complicated relationship between Walloons and Flemings.

Triple Beers

Beer Paix Dieu 10% Caulier | Triple
€32,00
Belgique Blonde Bouteille en stock Hainaut

Strong blonde beer, very yeasty. We recommend it. It is a traditional triple beer that is smooth and full of character. 

Next time you look at the full moon, you’ll look at it differently. That is because Paix Dieu is brewed under the full moon every 28 days. The beer used to be brewed by the abbey of Paix Dieu, where the lunar calendar was very important. The brewery has kept this tradition to stay true to the abbey and the beer. 

Not only are the brewers following the lunar calendar tradition, but they are also using old-fashioned manufacturing methods. These methods are almost identical to the methods used by the abbey. Paix Dieu beer is also 100% natural and preserved from filtration or pasteurisation. 

The colour of Paix Dieu beer is golden and cloudy. The head of the beer is creamy, generous and consistent. The beer has a medium body and is low in carbonation. 

On the nose, you’ll notice complex aromas. It is a mix of fruity, spicy, vanilla, hops, malt, and yeast aromas.

On the palate, you’ll get hoppy and sweet flavours. Notes of fruits, coriander, spices and yeast are present. It develops a fine bitterness. 

Paix Dieu has become a very popular drink and one of the most popular beers in the brewery. It is not only a popular beer in Belgium but very popular among the neighbouring countries, especially France. In fact, 50% of the production goes to the neighbours.

 

Why is Paix Dieu beer special?

Besides being brewed under the full moon, Paix Dieu is also among one of the strongest Belgian beers. So just like the full moon effect, you might turn into a werewolf after drinking a few of these beers with a 10% alcohol level.

Moreover, because it is only brewed during the full moon, it limits its production. That only adds value to the beer. 

 

Where is Paix Dieu beer brewed?

Paix Dieu is brewed by brewery Caulier. It is their only beer brewed under the full moon. The brewery is located close to the French border, in Péruwelz, Belgium. 

 

What are the ingredients of Paix Dieu?

The ingredients are carefully selected from local producers. The recipes include hops, malt and sugar. The yeast used is grown by the Caulier brewery. The water used to make Paix Dieu beer is drawn from the brewery’s own well. 

 

How to serve Paix Dieu?

Paix Dieu beer has its designated beer glass. Just like the full moon, it is completely round. The beer glass is also cut at a certain angle so it can capture all the aromas of the beer. Moreover, it is handmade glass. That means that each one of the beer glasses is unique. You are lucky if you own one.

Beer Jambe De Bois 8% Senne | Triple
€52,80
Belgique Bio Blonde Bouteille Bruxelles

Jambe-de-Bois is balanced but generously hopped Triple. It is a powerful and full-bodied beer and most likely the bitterest Triple beer in Belgium. 

When you pour Jambe de Bois into your beer glass, you’ll notice a beautiful blonde colour beer with golden reflections filling the glass. It has a creamy, firm, white head. 

On the nose, the hops aromas dominate but are accompanied by orange, citrus, grass and banana. You will also notice the aromas of fermentation and another fruity aroma that resembles a pear. The floral, honeyed sweetness of malts and spicy notes appear as well. 

The beer flavours are unique. In the mouth, you will experience a balance of bitterness and fruitiness. A ripe banana taste can be noticed. Malt is another dominant taste. The strong alcohol content gives it roundness and the absence of residual sugars makes the finish hoppy and bitter. 

De la Senne brewery is known for its quality beers and has created some true gems. Jambe-de-Bois is a unique triple and should not be missed when degustating Belgian beers. 
 

 

Story of Jambe-de-Bois name

 

The Senne Brewery gives tribute to the Belgian revolution and more specifically a Belgian soldier Jean-Joseph Charlier with this beer. Jean-Joseph fought in Napoleon’s army and lost his leg. His new wooden leg did not stop him. Later, in 1830, Jean-Joseph was a cannoneer during the Belgian Revolution against the Netherlands. 

 

What else can we know about Jambe-de-Bois beer?

 

What’s on the Jambe-de-Bois beer label? 

The beer label is related to the story of the beer name and is dedicated to the Belgian revolution. The illustration shows someone with a wooden leg sitting on a cannon. That would be Jean-Joseph Charlier! The label also used to state “No Dutchman was hurt in the making of this beer,” while now it reads Belgian Revolution Triple.
