Product Description

As the name says, Brewer’s Desire is the beer that our master brewer has dreamed of brewing for a long time, a nectar of the greatest rarity… This 100% malt beer (pale malt and lightly roasted malt) is brewed with aged hops and boiled for an extended period of time. Different yeasts from the Pajottenland region, that have been isolated and then cultivated, are added to the cooling vessel. The famous Brettanomyces enter also into action, and do their secret & mysterious work. This unique brew is allowed to mature for 2 years in oak barrels before being bottled, unfiltered, to undergo a final secondary fermentation with the same yeast. A single precious batch has been produced, to be shared among demanding connoisseurs. Willem Van Herreweghen, master brewer, and Anthony Martin are delighted to present the result of this work and their passion. This beer received a Gold medal in the prestigious. Brussels Beer Challenge 2016.

Taste / Wise

With a mischievous nose, this characterful, racy and wily brown ale quickly awakens your senses to gently full-bodied flavours that are almost akin to a scent but are true to the beer’s original roasted malt. It is swathed in a bouquet of hops and refreshed with orange zest, while releasing a subtle hint of chicory. All this generates a taste for more, especially once the glass is empty. A brown beauty with hazel eyes, pleasing to palate and throat alike.
