A tribute to ’Spéciale Belge’
We brew this amber beer as a tribute to ’Spéciale Belge’, an authentic Belgian style of beer that has existed since 1900. Our ‘Speciale 1900’ has incidentally been recognised as a Regional Product of Flanders since 2009.

When the elderly Belgian beer genre of ’spéciale belge’ got official recognition from the Flemish government in 2007, Haacht seized the opportunity to launch this new and very typical example of the style. Yellowish white, not very stable head, orangey amber colour, malt sweet profile (caramel, almond) with nutty and doughy middle phase, some mild yeast spiciness and soft florally hopped finish but little bitter. I’d prefer a De Koninck from tap in Antwerp if I need a spéciale belge, but this is okay - though clearly lacking personality, but that is precisely what I had expected from this brewery.

Een biertje met een wat speciale smaak dat niet bij iedereen in de smaak gaat vallen, maar ik vond het lekker

StueyD (1500) - Heacham, Norfolk, ENGLAND - JUL 9, 2014
An amber orange beer with a frothy white head. A heady perfumed aroma, floral and fruity. A medium dry mouthfeel. The taste starts off with a tart hoppiness, which brings the ought the floral and fruity elements from the aroma. There is a dry malt flavour later on that introduces a sweeter caramel flavour. The finish is tart and fruity. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Orange amber colour, white foam. Sweet and malty beer with notes of caramal. Metallic aftertaste. Unbalanced, not good.
