COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Brian OíReilly of Sly Fox Brewing Company joins Dirk Naudts to create the fifth brew in the De Proef Brewmasterís Collaboration series. This yearís collaboration celebrates the great brewing cultures of both Philadelphia and Gent.

Broederlijke Liefde (Brotherly Love) is a slightly higher gravity interpretation of the saison style. It is fermented with two yeasts Ė a classic saison yeast as well as brettanomyces from an original gravity of 1066 (16.5 plato). These yeasts yield a dry and slightly spicy ale with a strong hint of farmhouse character that will continue to develop with age. The use of Target and Styrian Golding hops at 37 IBUs add floral aromatics and a balancing bitterness.

Broederlijke Liefde if the official Belgian collaboration ale of Philly Beer Week 2011. If you canít join us in Philadelphia for our annual celebration in June please enjoy this creation in your own celebration of the international brewing community.

bhensonb (10341) - Woodland, California, USA - SEP 8, 2011
Bottle from The Davis Beer Shoppe in Davis, CA. Pours orange gold with a 4 finger creamy white head. Aromas of light stone fruits and barnyard. The barnyard/brett wafted to my nose from a foot away. Med body. Itís tangy. Itís fruity. Itís earthy - really barnyard. Finishes with downright farmyard. Iíd a sworn it was a Vinnie creation. Itís brilliant.
