As we countdown the days remaining in October, Bazi Bierbrasserie will close out the last Friday of the month with its annual Kwaktoberfest celebration. From 5:00 to 10:00pm on Friday, October 30th, Bazi will be pouring a taster tray that will feature Kwak, Tripel Karmeliet and DeuS all three from Bosteels Brewery.
For the tasting Bazi will be serving this three beer flight of 5 oz pours of each beer along with a Kwak tasting glass all for $15.00. Best of all one lucky winner will take home a Quattro (4-Kwak tasting tray). Raffles with lots of swag gear will take place every top of the hour.
Here are the beer descriptions that Bazi provided.
DeuS undergoes a lengthy, costly maturation in the Champagne caves of France. The elegant and labor-intensive “methode Champenoise” produces the best sparkling beverages in the world. DeuS has characteristics of both sparkling wine (fine, velvety carbonation) and specialty beer (rich maltiness) but also exhibits a fragrant, herbal and spicy character quite unique and special. Flavors of anise, mint, malt, lavender, and a barely perceptible hoppiness make DeuS a very sophisticated treat. Only available in 750 ml bottles.
Kwak is rich amber in color with a slightly sweet, generously malty character. Hops are subdued, but present a well-considered balance with the juicy ripeness of grain and a fruity, meringue softness.
Brewed with oats, barley and wheat, Tripel Karmeliet has soft, full, rich grain character with hints of banana, vanilla, and a slight, pleasing bubble-gum aroma. A restrained hop bitterness offers perfect balance and a gentle counterpart to its substantial maltiness. World’s Best Ale 2008.
