Rodenbach Alexander  5.6%  Sour Red/Brown 750ml
Alexander was brewed for the first time in 1986 on the occasion of Alexander Rodenbach’s 200th birthday and is now back by popular demand to the delight of beer lovers here and abroad. Its aftertaste is reminiscent of a Burgundy wine and its freshness makes this beer the perfect aperitif or accompaniment to cheeses or dessert.
An amazing beer.  This beer is a blend of 2 year old aged Rodenbach (2/3rd) with a young ale that has been macerated with sour cherries (1/3rd). A cult wine that had not been release since 2000. A must try.

Boon Oude Geuze Black Label 6.4% 750ml
We chose this particular old Geuze as our "driest" beer, Lambic 1.2 and 3 years with an apparent attenuation of almost 100%, despite the "dry" flavor everything is in balance due to the quality of the old lambics.
