Deus Brut des Flandres Belgium

Winemaker's Notes:

DeuS is a special type of beer, somewhere between an Champagne and a beer. It is made from Barley and lies somewhere in the balance between bitterness and creaminess. It has 11.5% alcohol - more than double usual beer and is fermented over a month, using two yeasts to give it its high alcohol content and is then taken to a cellar near Epernay in Champagne and re-fermented like a sparkling wine to give it its bubbles. After being bottled, it is left in the cellar for nine months, then tilted and rotated for a week. It is disgourged in the same way as a sparkling wine. Light blonde to palegolden beer, brightly scintillating, saturated and with extremely tiny bubbles, DeuS is crowned by a fine linen white, meringue-like head. On the nose it has a fascinating complexity. It develops the fragrance of fresh apples backed by mint, thyme, citrus, ginger, malt, pears, hops, allspice and cloves. DeuS is equaly as delicate and complex on the palate. It glides over the tongue as smoothly as silk and then blossoms into a creamy, tingling sparkle. It is light and vivacious and seduces you with the sweetness of a grape and the fruitiness of a desert apple. The finish is beautifully dry with a bare hint of tannin. It is the perfect aperatif, served in tall flute glasses or to go with delicate dishes or desserts.

Refreshing as an aperitif, and just as full in flavor and rich in aroma as a beer from heaven. That's DeuS. A magnificent symbiosis of brewing a beer and creating a sparkling wine.

Brewer's Notes - Subtlety in a bottle. Refreshing as an aperitif, and just as full in flavor and rich in aroma as a beer from heaven. That's DeuS. A magnificent symbiosis of brewing a beer and creating a sparkling wine. Ideal for delighting your guests sometime as an unusual choice with the before-dinner nibbles and amuse-geules. And perfect if you have got something to celebrate. DeuS -- truly the sparkling divine drink based on barley.
