Cantillon – Rose de Gambrinus
An undisputed World Classic – whole fresh raspberries are fermented in oak casks of Belgium’s classic beer – beer fermented by wild yeasts borne on the open air. Very dry, tart, and fruity, but also funky and complex, as a natural lambic should be. This is the real thing – definitely not one of those artificially sweetened soda-pop beers.
Fantome – Saison
Fruity, complex saison beer from the Ardennes forest from a tiny farmhouse brewery very hard to find even in Belgium.
De La Senne – Taras Boulba
Taras Boulba is the perfect session beer — loaded with complex yeast flavors, hopped to perfection, and as drinkable as any beer you’ve ever tried. At 4.5% alcohol, it’s built for drinkability.
Cantillon – Classic Gueuze
The quintessential Belgian beer – a perfect blend of one, two, and three year-old lambics. Tart and slightly acidic, Cantillon Gueuze is the real champagne of beers. It is fermented only with wild airborne yeasts from the Senne Valley in Brussels and is aged in centuries-old oak casks. It also certified organic in Belgium. A true world classic that will thrill the true beer connoisseur.
Drie Fonteinen – Cuvee Armand & Gaston
A blend of Drie Fonteinen brewed lambic from 2013, 2014 and 2015. From the only remaining traditional geuze blender in Belgium, using only 100 percent spontaneously fermented lambik beer, aged in oak casks, with no artificial sweeteners or other additives.
Jester King – Super Ultramega Hyperforce
The only American brewed beer in the lineup brewed with a Belgian ethos in Austin, Texas. Super Ultramega Hyperforce is an intergalactic farmhouse ale w/ ginger salt & tarragon, refermented w/ cantaloupe.
