De Korninck Brewery is based in Antwerp Belgium and its Antwerp pale ale is its primary beer. It, like all Belgian beers is traditionally served in a chalice shaped glass specific to this beer, called a ‘bollecke‘. In Antwerp the order is “a bolleke de Koninck“.
It is a light chestnut coloured ale with toffee and malt aromas. It has a pleasant caramel malt taste. A very pleasant ale not as heavy as some Belgian brune ales.
This is a very dark red-brown ale with a sweet warming barley wine aroma. It has a rich woody taste reminiscent of old polished dark wood furniture. The sweet start is replaced with the rich bitterness of hops and toasted malts.
This is one of the famous Belgian Trappist Beers and comes from the Westmalle Abbey and is normally served in a chalice glass.
L’abbaye Notre-Dame du Sacré-Cœure de Westmalle is a Benedictine monastery dedicated to contemplation and silence. The monks have been brewing since 1856 and the present Dubbel comes from a recipe modification in 1926. The monastery also include a farm and cheese dairy as well as the brewery considered necessary for self sufficiency.
