La Buteuse Special

This exceptional beer, fermented with three different types of yeast, was aged for six months in oak barrels, which were previously used in the making of apple brandy. Its nose features notes of vanilla, spices, roasted grains and barnyard. Its palate delivers intertwined flavours of burnt caramel, peach and fresh tobacco, as well as a soft effervescence delivered by fine champagne-like bubbles.

Did you know

Some of our apple brandy barrels come from the cider mill Michel Jodoin, in Rougemont. A lot of people can hardly believe this beer has a 10% alcohol content. The fine balance hides behind surprisingly light flavours for a Tripel Belgian beer. Don’t give into the temptation (not too much anyway)!
