This style was effectively created by Moortgat family brewery. They called the beer Duvel (flemish for Devil as during its creation some one had remarked that it was a devil of a beer! It has many imitators but we have the original

DUVEL 8.5% 33cl Duvel is a special bottle conditioned ale that takes 90 days to brew. It is well hopped with Saaz Saaz and Styrian Goldings. It has a dry aroma and slightly bitter after taste. It is probably Belgiums most famous ale and is available the world over

In 2016 the asked drinkers to pick their favourite - there were 6 packs available with one of each format. The 2012 version using Citra as the 3rd hop won the vote. It had already won a gold medal at the Brussels Beer Challenge and the consumer trophy at the Zythos Beer Festival. The Citra hops add crisp notes of grapefruit, lime, tropical fruit, melon and cassis to the typical Duvel range of flavours. A blend that has proved to be very popular.Citra is an explosive hop with an in-your-face flavour of citrusy notes that blend well with Duvel. And this version of Tripel Hop is now a permanant beer in Duvel Moortgat's beer range
TRIPLE D'ANVERS 8% 33cl Their website says"Triple d’Anvers is a real Belgian triple with more than just a touch of Antwerp style. Bold, generous and with plenty of attitude. A brewer’s ode to Antwerp" and that it "is full of enjoyment, right from the first sip. With a pleasantly surprising and slightly sweet taste that gives way to refreshingly sparkling notes. Take in the spicy aroma with hints of orange zest and coriander, complemented by a full-bodied aftertaste."


Originally beers brewed in England for export by ship to India ( for the British army stationed there). They were more hopped than the beers brewed for England as the extra hops helped preserve the beer on the long journey to India. Proper IPAs almost disappeared in the UK, until the style was reinvented by the new generation of Craft Brewers in the USA. They soon caught on in THe UK too and now Belgium is following suit. All our examples of the style come from Duvel Moortgat. 2 are listed here and 2 at the bottom the the entire list under the heading American Craft Beers

Houblon Chouffe 8% 33cl HOUBLON CHOUFFE was brewed for the first time in 2006. It is characterised by a harmonious balance between a pleasant fruitiness and pronounced bitterness by using three types of hops. HOUBLON CHOUFFE is an unfiltered beer which is refermented in the bottle

Here’s to a great-tasting, refreshing beer!"


Yes it does refer to Scotland and they are descended from the strong sweety malty Scottish beers often referred to a a "wee heavy" which came in small 180cl bottles and were once available in Belgium under brand names like McEwans and Campbells - those remaining are truly Belgian though

Mc Chouffe 8% 33cl Mc CHOUFFE is an unfiltered brown beer which is refermented in the bottle. Its fruity bouquet conceals a hint of bitterness.


Barley wine is an English term used to describe wine strength ales. La Trappe came up with the name Quadrupel.

PIRAAT 10.5% 33cl Piraat is a light-amber coloured ale with full foam head and aroma of bittery, spicy, malty and alcoholic scents. What follows is a perfect combination of malty, sweet and hop bitter tastes, after which you are drowned in a very long, semi-sweet after taste with bitter undertone. A tremendous digestive beer that delights your tastebuds.It is an adventure of a beer, a real treat.
PIRAAT TRIPEL HOP 10.5% 33cl A much more hop-forward version of Piraat
GULDEN DRAAK 10.5% 33cl Gulden Draak (Golden Dragon) owes its name to the gilded statue on top of the Belfry in Ghent. Legend says the gilded dragon first featured on the prow of the ship in which the Norwegian king Sigrid Magnusson left on a crusade in 1111. He offered the statue to the emperor of Constantinople (Istanbul) to put it on the cupola of the Aya Sophia. Some hundred years later, the Flemish count Baldwin IX had the showpiece transported to Flanders, and the Norwegian dragon ended up in the the city of Brugge (Bruges). After the battle of Beverhout in 1382, the inhabitants of Gent took the dragon as war booty and put it on top of their Belfry. The Belfry is where all communal charters were kept, and the dragon had to protect these documents and it was also the symbol of the freedom and might of the city. This imposing symbol has lasted for over 6 centuries and so needs an equally imposing beer named after it. Gulden Draak is a dark tripel (or barley wine), which in itself makes it an exceptional beer. But it is the complex taste with hints of caramel, roasted malt and coffee in combination with the creamy hazel head that makes it unique. Gulden Draak is a top fermentated beer with secondary fermentation in the bottle. For this secondary fermentation, wine yeast is used, and this contributes to the unparalleled taste.And of course, a unique beer deserves a unique presentation. That’s why Gulden Draak is presented in a white bottle with the a black banner, the golden dragon and the red letters. Gulden Draak can be drunk as an aperitif or a dessert (Tip: Replace the whisky in Irish coffee by Gulden Draak) or whenever you have the time to sit back and relax.
LA TRAPPE QUADRUPEL 10% 33cl A closely guarded recipe became reality, and the first Quadrupel beer in the world was born over 25 years ago when the Koningshoeven Monastery brewery launched La Trappe Quadrupel. Originally brewed as a seasonal beer for the real beer lovers,now an acclaimed beer with a stunning amber color and a warm, intense flavour. Malty sweet, slightly burnt and pleasantly bitter with a sweet aftertaste. A heavy beer with 10% alcohol, which has a true 'taste evolution’ because of the secondary fermentation after bottling. A wine amongst beers with aromas of banana, almond and vanilla.
GULDEN DRAAK QUADRUPEL 9000 10.5% 33cl Maybe inspired by the above,Van Steenberge's new very strong beer recipe uses 3 different kinds of malt added in a volume that is 4 times the content used in lagers. This provides Gulden Draak 9000 Quadruple with a deep golden amber colour and a fruity scent. Together with the smooth and subtle sweet taste this ensures this a wonderfully accomplished bouquet. Gulden Draak 9000 Quadruple is top fermented with a secondary fermentation in the bottle. A wine yeast is used for this secondary fermentation, which also contributes to the grandiose taste.
DELIRIUM TREMENS 8.5% 33cl A pale blond beer with a fine and regular effervesce that ensures a fine and stable head. It is slightly malty with a feel likea shot of alcohol is igniting the mouth. In reality the tongue and palate are warmed.The aftertaste is strong, long-lasting and dry bitter. Oh and the bottle and glass feature a little pink elephent
DELIRIUM NOCTURNUM 8.5% 33cl A dark brown-red beer with a compact white-yellow, stable and lacing head. The arom has touches of caramel, mocha and chocolate, and spices such as liquorice and coriander. The flavour is initially alcohol and softness. This is followed by an increasing bitterness, partially from the hop, but also from the roasted malt and chocolate malt. Towards the end a nice balance between bitterness, sour and sweet. Oh and the bottle and glass feature a little pink elephent
LA GUILLOTINE 8.5% 33cl A golden blond, multigrain beer with a very persistent, lacing head.It has a complex smell, with a citrus aroma, followed by hop aromas. It is initially rather sweet, because of the alcohol. The intense taste and roundness mask the presence of high bitterness.


These beers are brewed using wheat and barley rather than just barley. The use of wheat as well as barley is traditional to Germany and Belgium and is now finding favour with some British breweries too. Served cold the beers are cloudy, almost white in colour, have a refreshing light taste and are lightly spiced. Peter Celis reintroduced White Beer to Belgium in the late 1960s, brewing in the town of Hoegaarden. His brewery flourished but sadly a major fire in the 1980s meant he needed considerable finance to continue. This was provided by Interbrew (Stella Artois - Now AB Inbev), who bought the brewery from Peter in 1990. AB Inbev still brew the beer today in Hoegaarden and export it world wide. After selling Hoegaarden to Interbrew, Peter Celis decided to introduce Belgium's rich brewing tradition to the USA and in 1992 built a brewery in Austin, Texas. He repeated his success story with many Americans enjoying Belgian style white beer - Celis White as he called it. In 1996 the American brewers Miller bought the Texas brewery, then in 2000 closed it and in 2002 sold the equiptment to a small Michigan brewer ! (Miller was subsequently bought by South African Breweries and the resulting business, SAB Miller was bought and broken upby AB Inbev!). Meanwhile Peter moved back to Belgium and contracted his beer first to the Belgian brewery De Smedt who were then taken over by Heineken! So it was time to move again and Van Steenberge won the contract from Celis to brew Celis White. A couple of years after Peters death, 2017,Peter's daughter Christine, who now owns the name and the recipe, opened a new brewery in Austin, Texas and is brewing Celis White to her fathers original recipe which maybe in time will be available in Europe. So Van Steenberge have a new white beer named after their founder, Jean Baptise De Bruin.

BAPTIST WHITE 5% 33cl coming soon A new white beer commemorating the brewery's founder Jean Baptise De Bruin
LA TRAPPE WITTE 5.5% 33cl The World's only Trappist wheat beer. It is brewed using only water, wheat, and hops. No herbs are added. Saphir hops give the ale its citrusy aroma. A real thirst-quencher on a hot summer’s day that also makes for a delicious drink at any other time of the year.
VEDETT EXTRA WHITE 5% 33cl Duvel Moortgat's wheat beer has a refreshing crisp mildly bitter taste with hint of citrus zest and has a dry finish


Amber Ale was the everyday beer before the rise of Pils/lager and several Flemish breweries still produce an amber ale todaywith the most famous being Antwerp's De Konninck. These beers are similar to traditional English Bitter and Dusseldorf's Altbier

BRUEGEL 5.2% 33cl In the second half of the 16th century, Bruegel was the best painter of his time. Today Bruegel is one of the best of Belgium's amber ales. Unlike some, Bruegel is a living beer with secondary fermentation in the bottle. Its full bodied flavour, refreshing after taste and aromatic head make the second bottle all the more inviting. Van Steenberge's Bruegel is also a great-tasting refreshing alternative to lager. The ideal drink to have with lunch. This beer combines well with all spices, from a hearty warm meat dish to a spicy salad.


These are ancient styles of beer that only still exists in Flanders. The beer is aged for several years at the brewery and the beer is dark, fruity, and a little sour but very refreshing. These ales are used in Belgian cooking in dishes like Gent's signature dish - Stoverij, which is a slow cooked beef stew.

LIefmans Goudenband 8% 33cl Goudenband is an extaordinary beer. It has a malty spicy aroma, a smooth dry body with hints of caramel, malt and nutty notes. It is an excellent accompaniment to goats cheese
Monks Cafe 5.5% 33cl A blend young and old beers make this mildy tart sour ale. It is light bodied with a lactic/sour nose and a bit of sweet and sour in the finish. Very refreshing! Brewed annually by Van Steenberge,it used to be known as Bios Vlaamse de Borgogne, and over time became more and more difficult to find. But the owner of a bar/restaurant in Philadelphia famous for its extensive beer range persuaded the brewery to rename it after them and made it their house beer - and the place is the Monks Cafe. And its now available again, and in Malta too


There's an ancient style of beer still brewed in the area around Brusselles that uses wild yeast blowing in the air and which is deliberately used in the brewing of ales. The resulting beers are refreshing but vary from mildly sour to very sour. If such a thought grabs your attention, when in Belgium look out for LAMBICS and OUDE GUEUZE. But such beer would offend some so there is an equally ancient tradition of adding cherries to the brewing process, so alleviating the sourness with the sweetness of the cherries. These cherry 'kriekenbiers' became widely popular and other fruit beers are now produced too There is an equally ancient practice of using Flemish Brown Ale (See Flemish aged brown/red ales above) in place of the Lambic when making KriekenbierThis ancient beer style has spawned beers where fruit syrup is added to a beer, often Witbier/White beer is used instead of Lambic in the brewing proccess to produce sweet fruity beers which are often served on the rocks

Liefmans Cuvee Brut 6% 33cl Since taking over Duvel have renamed Liefmans Kriek as Kriek Brut and it too is still an extaordinary beer. The creation of Cuvee Brut starts with whole cherries been soaked in old brown ale in large shallow tanks. The mixture is matured for a year before being blended with more old brown ale and Goudenband (above). Kriek Brut has a hazy cloudy appearance, is red-brown in colour but with a rose head. The aroma is of cherries, wood and almond, the initial taste is fruit with perfumy flavours evolving and lingering.
Liefmans Gluhkriek 6% 33cl
Liefmans Fruitesse 3.8% 25cl This is a new beer that starts with a base beer being matured on cherries in the Liefmans cellars for 18 months after which it is blended with bilberry, elderberry, strawberry and rasberry juices. The result is fruity, sweet and sparkling. The brewery recommend serving it "on the rocks"
Liefmans Yell'oh 3.8% 25cl A refreshing apero beer with a mix of lime, apple, elderflower, basil and pineapple. The brewery recommend serving it "on the rocks"
Cherry Chouffe 8% 33cl This new beer starts life as McChouffe to which Cherry is added - producing big cherry flavour
DELIRIUM RED 8.5% 33cl A deep dark red beer with a light pink, compact and lacing head. There is soft fruity aroma, with hints of almond and lots of cherry flavour. Very much a dessert beer. Oh and the bottle and glass feature a little pink elephent
Floris Fruit Beers various between 3.6 and 4.5% 33cl These beers From Huyghe start life as Floris Witbier to which various fruit juices are added. We have 6 varieties - honey, strawberry, raspberry,cherry, passion fruit and chocolate
Mongozo Exotic Fruit Beers 3.6% 33cl These beers From Huyghe start life as Mongozo Buckwheat White Beer Witbier to which various fruit juices are added. We have 3 varieties - Mango, Banana and Coconut.The Banana Beer follows a traditional African recipe originating from the Masai people of Kenya and Tanzania.We also have Mongozo Organic Gluten free Pils, which Huyghe tell us is the world’s first organic, gluten-free and Fairtrade lager


OK. This is not a normally used term for a Belgian Beer, but thats what the brewery De Konninck say it is. So go back to the introduction to fruit beers above. So yes they are using wild yeast - After that the brewery description offers a perfect insight to a modern take on an ancient beer style

Wild Jo 5.8% 33cl Wild Jo saw the light of day after a suitably wild night in the De Koninck City Brewery. Our brewers steered clear of the well-trodden path of conventional yeasts and got to work with wild varieties. The result? Pure rock ‘n’ roll in a bottle! Wild Jo is untameable. On the contrary, the beer continues to evolve in the bottle as time goes by, getting wilder and wilder. Just to keep things interesting!Wild Jo’s name is a perfect match for its temperament. The “Wild” naturally refers to the wild yeasts used to ferment it. But what about “Jo”? That’s our way of paying homage to Joseph van den Bogaert, the spiffing chap whose own lust for adventure ensured the survival of the brewery after WWI. A real daredevil, if ever there was one. Were you also “born to be Wild Jo”?


With the concentration of beer (lager) production in the USA with a few mega brewing companies there has been an huge upsurge in new small breweries - many making ALE and the flagship of many is India Pale Ale - see the section on Belgian India Pale Ale above. And we have 3 beers brewed at Duvel in Belgium that follow the recipe of beers of the same name, brewed at Boulevard Brewery of Kansas City, a partner brewery of Duvel Moortgat

The Calling  8.5% 35.5cl the Brewery says "The Calling is an undeniable IPA we were driven to make. It's our tribute to like-minded dreamers, adventurous spirits, and glass half-full optimists. It's also our most heavily hopped beer ever, bursting forth with unmistakable tropical fruit and pine hop aromas and flavor supported with a slightly sweet malt character, tapering to a crisp, dry finish. Heed your call and enjoy."
Single Wide IPA  5.7% 35.5cl the Brewery says "Boulevard Single-Wide I.P.A. is our take on a style that originated in 18th century Great Britain. This version—inspired by our Smokestack Series Double-Wide I.P.A.—boasts a heady combination of six varieties of hops, some of which were employed for dry-hopping"
Tank 7 Farmhouse Ale  8.5% 35.5cl Named after the persnickety fermenter number sevenat Boulevard the black sheep of their cellar family. Ironically, when their brewers were experimenting with variations on a traditional Belgian-style farmhouse ale, the perfect combination of elements came together in that very vessel. So they called it Tank 7. Beginning with a big surge of fruity aromatics and grapefruit-hoppy notes, the flavor of this complex, straw-colored ale tapers off to a peppery, dry finish."
