De Halve Maan
The family-owned De Halve Maan Brewery is located in Bruges, a beautiful city in West Flanders, Belgium, whose historic centre is listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The brewery's logo has come to be identified with Bruges itself.It brews two of the best-known and renowned Belgian ales: Brugse Zot and Straffe Hendrik.
BRUGSE ZOT BLOND
A beer with a golden yellow colour, enhanced with a fruity aroma. It contains four different types of barley and two aromatic hop varieties. A relatively light beer in its class, with 6% alcohol, leaving a fruity aftertaste on the palate.
BRUGSE ZOT DUBBEL
Aside from the well-known Zot Blond, the brewery recently created a darker version with 7.5% alcohol. It is brewed with six different malt varieties that give it a rich flavour. The famous Czech hops from Zatec were selected to add a distinctive bitter finish.
STRAFFE HENDRIK TRIPEL
Straffe Hendrik is an authentic Bruges Tripel beer with 9% alcohol, the only one of its numerous predecessors that has survived. It contains six different varieties of malt barley, exquisite quality hops and a cascade of aromas. It is part of Belgium's cultural heritage.
STRAFFE HENDRIK QUADRUPEL
After the Tripel of the same name, comes a new intensely dark beer of high fermentation. With a complex and robust character composed of a blend of malts, the Quadrupel combines dryness with a full body and a subtle fruity sensation.
STRAFFE HENDRIK HERITAGE
Initially it is a Straffe Hendrik Quadrupel usually 11% Alc., which is aged in oak barrels for at least 12 months in the brewery's cellars. Especially Heritage of 2015, is aged in Rum barrels and in Armagnac oak barrels. It is an exceptional beer, unique in its kind, filled in numbered bottles 0,75 lit and sold in wooden collectible boxes.
It has the potential to age in the bottles as a second ripening takes place inside the bottle.
Each year brings about a new experience.
