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.

erickok (5404) - Leuven, BELGIUM - JUL 16, 2016
Light malty, light brown sugar, touch woody, hopless. Bit kolsch like. A very odd style and this is a typical if not quite clean example. I enjoyed it still, but not going to rock your world. (On tap at the brewpub)

Hamirubi (566) - Waarschoot, BELGIUM - FEB 19, 2016
25cl draft at Het Verdronken Land, Ghent (18 II 2016). This special belge is a red brown looking ale with a notable grain and malt nose. The collar is small beige coloured. The taste itself is rather flat, coming from the low carbonation and the thin watery body. Some flavours really are too subtle. There are some pleasant almost soury hints in the beer as well. Classic special belge... with a faint palate though, I’m afraid.

nathanvc (224) - Brugge, BELGIUM - JAN 30, 2016
Pours hazy dark orange/brown with a minimal head. Faint aroma of malts, hay, grains, some yeast. Light sweet to light bitter. The palate undermines every aroma, though. Light body and thin, watery mouthfeel. Metallic finishing. Very bland. Nothing "speciale" here.

Sigmund (6719) - Tau, NORWAY - DEC 22, 2015
250 ml bottle, from Prima Beer. BB date 29.01.15. ABV is 5%. Clear amber colour, low head, slightly off-white. Moderate aroma, hints of mild spices, malts and caramel. The flavour is fairly fresh and fruity, medium dry, hints of mild spices and caramel again, som hops in the finish, but the bitterness is still very moderate. Easy drinking, nice enough.
