Product Description:

Located in Wallonian Belgium, the Abbey of Floreffe (latin for “flower”) was founded in 1121. A brewery was commissioned within the Abbey in 1250. Brewing continuing unabated until the French Revolution in 1794, when the monks where chased from the Abbey, and the premises put up for sale.

In 1850 Floreffe was preserved, and transformed into a college, but it wasn’t until 1960 that the headmaster recommissioned the brewery (in a move to fund the upkeep and maintenance of the buildings and gardens).

Today Floreffe produces a range of 5 core beers, which are noted throughout Belgium for their quality and consistency.

 

Tasting Notes:

Pours a deep golden orange, with a soft, rocky white head. Aromas display a fine balance between doughy malt and yeast characteristics – reminiscent of freshly baked white bread – and a floral spiciness imparted by noticeable alcohol warmth and a touch of noble hops. The flavours are understated and subtle, making the beer highly drinkable, but still interesting and complex. The malts provide a refreshing blend of banana, pear drops, honey and bread, flavours balanced by a herbal spiciness, alcohol warmth and prickling carbonation. The mouthfeel is light, and the finish bone dry. A subtle and very enjoyable example of the style.
