Beer Jambe De Bois 8% Brasserie de la Senne | Triple
62,10 Kč
Belgique Bio Bouteille Bruxelles En stock perm

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.

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.

Tripel Karmeliet is still brewed according to an authentic beer recipe that describes the use of three kinds of cereals: wheat, oats and barley.

The Tripel Karmeliet beer was created back in 1996. The brewer got inspiration from a local bakery and was impressed by their multi-grain bread. Because of this, he was thinking of creating a Tripel beer and worked on refining the recipe for three years. 

Afterwards, he had the luck to discover a recipe that dates back to 1679. This beer recipe was very similar to the recipe he was working on. This ancient recipe had a big influence on the modern Tripel Karmeliet recipe. That led to the tripel beer we know today that instantly became a success. 

The beer has a nice creamy foam and a golden colour. You have spicy notes and hints of vanilla and citrus on the nose. The Tripel Karmeliet flavour is refreshing with spicy, earthy and sweet notes. The oats bring a creamy mouthfeel and a smooth finish. You can also get notes of banana and vanilla which develop into an orange flavour throughout drinking. 

The brewing process of Tripel Karmeliet beer is much longer than usual and takes up to 6 or 7 weeks. It is only to assure quality and flawless taste. 

Moreover, the beer has won several awards, including the World Beer Awards, World Beer Championships, The International Beer Challenge and Asia Beer Challenge. You can trust that this beer is pure perfection. A great Belgian classic!

His increasingly impatient wife called him. At this point, the pub owner remarked, "Do you know what you are? A dulle teve!" The brewer immediately saw possibilities: "Now we have to make a beer, we already have the name," he said.

Beer Paix Dieu 10% Caulier | Triple
74,52 Kč
Belgique Bouteille perm

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.

Story of Tripel beer

The “tripel” beer has its origins in the abbeys.

At the time when the monks brewed their own beers, they produced four beers: table beer, double, triple and occasionally quadruple beers.

Each style was a multiple of three to express the alcohol level of the beer. The different styles were actually a benchmark for consumers. The company being very hierarchical, kept the best products for the highest social strata.

Strong ales like the triple were reserved for large events or important members of the clergy and their visitors. Stronger in alcohol, they were also better designed, as the monks allowed more time for them when brewing. Because the longer the mashing, the more sugars are present in the must; part of this sugar will then be transformed into alcohol during fermentation.

Even though everyone thinks that triples are all blondes and doubles are all brunettes, this prejudice was born when the Westmalle Tripel was released. After this event, breweries started making doubles which were brown and triples which were blonde. But it has never been officially decreed that color was a binding factor, nor an obligation for the triple beer appellation.

There are still a few examples of beers that do not respect this rule. The Strubbe Brewery brews a double beer which is amber in color, and a triple beer which is brown; proof that color is not a legislated characteristic.
