Le Coq

Le Coq is a barrel aged sour rye beer assembled on top of 450 pounds of sour cherries.  As a result of this process, this proud and robust amber coloured beast presents lambic aromas with undertones of sour cherry and barley candy.  As soon as dawn breaks, its light body starts singing sharp but generously fruity notes, a gripping combination that awakens the senses.

Did you know

INSPIRED BY KRIEK LAMBICS. THESE BEERS OF BELGIAN ORIGIN ARE AMONG THE MOST SOUGHT AFTERS SO, IF YOU CAN PUT YOUR HAND ON LE COQ, BE CAREFUL NOT TO SING UNTIL EARLY MORNING.
