Bire Sint Haulin

Blanche Gwendydd

Caracole Ambrée - 8% alc/vol

Caracole au Miel - 7.2% alc/vol

Comments - First brewed 1996.

Caracole Brune - 7.2% alc/vol

Comments - First brewed 1990.
Tasting Notes - Very odd texture spoils and otherwise impressive, if a little overpoweringly burnt tasting, ale.

Caracole Cuvée - 9% alc/vol

Cuvée de l'An Neuf - 8% alc/vol

Comments - First brewed 1994.
Tasting Notes - The 1994 vintage was an after dinner drink with an amazingly smooth and creamy texture. Although very stoutish in character it has a great deal more depth and complexity than most people's idea of a true stout.

La Fana

Nostradamus - 9.5% alc/vol

Comments - Replaced Cuvée de l'An Neuf as the Christmas beer.

Saxo - 8% alc/vol

Comments - First brewed 1994.
Tasting Notes - An odd beer with a complexity somewhat masked by the hops and bitterness.

Saxo Biologique - 8% alc/vol

Troublette - 5% alc/vol

Comments - First brewed 1992.
Tasting Notes - An orignal and successful approach to producing a Wallonian artisanal white beer with a great deal of complexity and interest. Mouthfuls of all sorts of tastes wash across the tongue in waves.

Troublette Biologique - 5% alc/vol
