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!

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

Koelschtrinker (19523) - 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 (5115) - 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.

BlackHaddock (6986) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - AUG 25, 2014
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.
