Thursday Tasting 4/28 5-7pm: D&V International Belgian Portfolio

Posted Apr 27, 2016 in Beer, Breweries, Events, Goings on

D&V_internationalJoin us and Jesse Mogk Thursday, April 28 from 5-7 pm and enjoy some of the classic Belgian offerings from D&V International Importers!

St. Bernardus Extra 4 - The Extra 4 is brewed in the classic ‘single’ style and is a light gold colored beer with a ABV of only 4.8%. It is a beer of high fermentation, bottle conditioned and full of flavours. It is brewed with more hops than usual for the other beers of Brewery St. Bernardus.

Verhaeghe Echt Kriekenbier - Echt Kriekenbier is as the name suggests a cherry beer that is manufactured with only the real fruit of cherries instead of with flavor enhancers or extracts of cherries. The fruit is sourced from the region around Sint-Truiden in Limburg (Belgium). Unlike the most famous fruit beers is the basic beer of the “real cherry beer” not a Lambic but a West-Flemish red-brown ale aged in oak wood. About mid-July at the picking, the Northern cherries are brought in at the brewery and laid in on the base beer. Because the taste of the cherry fruit varies from year to year and this according to the number of hours of sunshine or rain, the kriekenbier at its final composition is blended with cherry beer from the year before and two-year-old cherry beer.

Val-Dieu Tripel - The Val-Dieu Triple is the result of a long fermentation, scrupulously followed by the brewmaster. Its deep yet soft bitterness does not interfer with the discovery of its components. The taste of the hop comes through, naturally aromatized, accompanied by an alcoholic after taste. It can be associated with refined dishes and ranks among the great beers. It may be found in the some of the most exclusive restaurants.

Caracole Nostradamus - Nostradamus from Brasserie Caracole is a very complex artisanal Wallonian brown ale, rich, warming, little piquant in the mouth with liquorice, mocha flavors, pear and toasted bread background notes, perfect after-dinner drink or night cap.

St. Bernardus ABT 12 - 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.

new-holland-logoCome sample some of our favorites from Michigan brewery New Holland! Tomorrow, Thursday, April 21 anytime between 5-7pm.

White Hatter IPA - Flavorfully blends the soft malt, fruity esters and delicate spicing of a Belgian White with hoppy citrus notes of an IPA. Pleasant hints of orange are framed with chamomile, coriander and grains of paradise.(Pair with fish, grilled chicken, hard cheeses.)

The Poet Oatmeal Stout - Oats bring a creaminess and soft mouth-feel to rich, roasty malt character. (Pair with mushrooms, beef, blooming, soft-ripened cheeses and chocolate.)

Pilgrim’s Dole - A barleywine-style ale made with fifty percent wheat malt, or what we at New Holland call a wheatwine. Pilgrim’s Dole blends warming and slightly sweet flavors with a unique caramelized character.

Dragon’s Milk - A stout with roasty malt character intermingled with deep vanilla tones, all dancing in an oak bath. (Pair with red meat, smoked foods, balsamic, rich cheese and dark chocolate.)
