Qantelaar is the first beer of brewery "d’Oude Maalderij". 4 guys with a passion for craft beer founded the brewery in 2011.

Since then, we try to design and improve our recipes in order to create artisanal Belgian craft beers. The "Qantelaar" is created with 5 malts, a bit of candy sugar, 2 hops and ferments in the bottle. We use 30% more ingrediënts than a regular brown beer which gives it a great body and taste. We don’t add any herb, spice or chemical compound in the traditional Belgian brown strong beer.

Try to get a hold of it and enjoy the taste of what a good craft beer should taste like.

Dare to taste, learn to enjoy!

Martinus (4317) - Baarle-Nassau, - FEB 5, 2013
Clear black colour, beige head. Aroma of roasted malts, coffee, liquorice, drop and dried fruit. Bitter roasted malts flavour, light hops. Quite light carbonation, light liquorice (drop) in the finish.
Nice beer, but wouldn’t call it a quadrupel, it feels closer to dubbel and stout.

Koelschtrinker (14604) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - DEC 17, 2014
Dunkler, etwas zu stark karbonisierter Antrunk. Deutliche Herbe, kaum süß. Das Malz nimmt im Mittelteil bereits deutlich ab, dennoch leicht schokoladig. Zu früh wird das Bier trocken, im Nachgeschmack verschwinden weite Teile der Malzigkeit. Ok. 9/10/8/8/11/8

Alengrin (3884) - BELGIUM - SEP 29, 2014
Oude Maalderij’s first beer, brewed at Maenhout, but since last year production apparently moved to Gulden Spoor. Bottled in 75 cl champagne bottles wrapped in paper on which a lengthy commercial (and probably fake) history is written. Light beige, moussy, not too stable head, colour a misty dark bronze. Subdued fruity character, some pear, some orange, caramelly and nutty malts, liquorice, mild grassy hop bitter finish, quite full mouthfeel. Not bad for a first attempt.

75cl bottle, shared with Blackhaddock, Fin & Loz @ Les Crepes de Sophie, Shrewsbury. Thanks Jeremy! This was a beautiful rare, aged quad. Some dried fruits and slight sour oud bruin notes, mildly sticky & sweet with some spice. A curious taste and glad to have tried it.

Corked and caged 0.75 litre bottle from 08 Oct 2012, Lot 002. Shared with Fin and Mat on 23rd Aug 2014 at Sophie’s Creperie. Dark brown with a red hue, tanned head. Malts lead the way in both the nose and taste with dark fruits showing in both the aroma and taste. A slight yeastiness in the flavouring as the beer warmed a little. It came across a bit sweet and sour in nature with the sweetness just about winning overall. I liked it.

Bottle courtesy of Black Haddock, cheers Jeremy! We had this at The Creperie, Market Hall, Shrewsbury, Saturday 23rd August 2014 in company of Mat, Loz, Jeremy and some of Jeremy’s family, Pours mahogany in colour with a light beige head. Tangy dark sticky fruits a bit of date perhaps. This is both spicy and a little yeasty. A twangy fruity sour edge. Its good. Aroma not too disimilar to Pannepot, in fact its really similar. A jolly decent beer, cheers Jeremy! A8 A4 T7 P4 Ov15 3.8

Shared with Mathieu87 APPEARANCE: pitch black beer, nice small beige head. NOSE: lots of chocolate, some coffee, little vanilla even, dark fruits noticeable, some liquorice even. TASTE: coffee, dark chocolate, again little liquorice. Very good Quadrupel! Really like this beer! But is this really a quadrupel? Reminded me more of a stout though...

Geproeft in brouwerij Maenhout (Meulebeke). Zeer mooie donkerbruine kleur. Zowel in het aroma, de smaak en de afdronk herken je de geroosterde mout. In het aroma nog toetsen van bosfruit. Het zoet, hopbitter mondgevoel heeft een lichte carbonatie en bevat tevens wat zoethout waarbij ook sporen van chocolade en caramel na. Dit alles is eveneens terug te vinden in de zeer goede afdronk. Een prachtig degustatiebier met waarschijnlijk lange bewaartijd.. Een echt kunstwerk!

Hi, Qantelaar is an amazing new Belgian beer. Be aware, this beer is NOT a Quadrupel, as someone here under wrongly tried to believe us. The one (3th. bacth) I tried was still brewed at Maenhout. The 5th. batch, which is still maturing today is brewed at Gulden Spoor. I can tell you, his beer is a HIT !!! Such a dense flavour concentrations going on here. Malty rich, and pleasant roasty, perfectly in balance with the caramel malts and perfectly dosed hops. No doubt, a beer I can recommend with full of my heart ! TOP !!! But .... not at all a Quadrupel, this to be precise. Cheers, Filip

Brown colour. Toasty malts in aroma. Smooth, rich, creamy feel. Moderate sweetness with some choco/coffee flavours coming through.
