Abbaye de St-Amand - 7% alc/vol

All Black - 6% alc/vol

Belle de Pévèle - 7% alc/vol

Bière de St.Amand - 7% alc/vol

Comments - First brewed 1996.
Tasting Notes - A refreshing golden ale with good complexity, let down by excessive fizz.

Bière du Mont Saint-Aubert - 8% alc/vol

Blanche de Brunehaut - 5% alc/vol

Blanche de Charleroi

Brunehaut Makasi - 8% alc/vol

Brunehaut Tradition - 6.5% alc/vol

Brunehaut Tradition de Noël - 8% alc/vol

Comments - First brewed 1992.
Tasting Notes - An odd, but unfortunately bland, beer with both saison and abbey triple characteristics.

Tasting Notes - An odd beer with a multi-faceted nose and a strong, lasting finish but not much between.

Heylissen Blond

Heylissen Bruin

La Marchande Blonde

ne Kopstoot - 7% alc/vol

Ramée Blonde - 8% alc/vol

Comments - For the Ferme de l'Abbaye de la Ramée in Jodoigne.
