Rookop is a brown, top-fermented ale that is not sweet, with coffee in the flavour and a fine, mild bitterness. Rookop used to be brewed in the St-Joris brewery in Reningelst, Belgium until 1963 when the brewing activities stopped. The brewery was restored back to its original condition in 2012 and now functions as a meeting centre for families with children. We were asked to bring this famous beer back to life. Since the original recepy could not be recovered, a brand new beer was developed.

bartlebier (3507) - Belchium im Biersgau, GERMANY - FEB 4, 2015
UPDATED: FEB 5, 2015 75cl bottle from Poperingse Bierfestival 10/2014, brewed 05/2014. Dark acajou-brown pour with again a luscious cap. Rich earthy aroma of caramel roast, bread crust, fragrant fresh bread, an inkling of strawberry and meadow hops. Taste is a well-balanced mix of all that, surprisingly dry and rich. Popering hop bite with great character in the finish. Nice Flemish Dunkel!

Alengrin (4604) - BELGIUM - OCT 3, 2014
UPDATED: MAY 7, 2016 The first beer made by a company which grows hops organically and apparently the name was taken from a beer brewed up till the sixties. Thin light beige head, very dark brown colour. Aroma of caramel, green banana, pear, dried fig, cooked turnip, some vague cabbage, fondant chocolate, a whiff of coffee, grassy hops, walnuts; ’clean’ and subduedly sweetish onset, bananan, raisin and plum accents, spritzy carbo, smooth and slick mouthfeel, very caramelly maltiness with bittering toasted aspect, a tad metallic, soft herbal hop bitterishness in the finish, medium long. Straightforward but technically well done.
