Castle Brewery Van Honsebrouck, a beacon of Belgian brewing tradition, proudly presents Bacchus Kriekenbier. This beer is a testament to the brewery's dedication to innovation while honouring age-old brewing techniques. At its core, Bacchus Kriekenbier is based on the Bacchus Oud Vlaams Bruin (Old Flemish Brown), a beer style deeply rooted in the West Flanders region. The addition of krieks (Morello cherries) elevates this beer to new heights, offering a delightful interplay of sweet and sour notes.

Tasting Notes:

  • Appearance: Deep red hue, reminiscent of ripe cherries, crowned with a beige-pink frothy head.
  • Aroma: A bouquet of fresh krieken cherries dominates, complemented by subtle hints of the characteristic Oud-Bruin aroma.
  • Flavour: A harmonious blend of mild sourness from the cherries and the inherent sweetness of the base beer. Touches of wood and nuts add complexity to the palate.
  • Mouthfeel: Smooth and well-rounded, the beer offers a refreshing tartness that lingers, urging you to take another sip.

The recognition of Bacchus Kriekenbier as an official regional product of West Flanders is a testament to its authenticity and quality. This accreditation, akin to France's "Appellation d'Origine Contrôlée", ensures that consumers are getting a beverage deeply tied to its region of origin.

While Bacchus Kriekenbier stands tall on its own, it also serves as a versatile companion in the culinary world. Its unique flavour profile makes it an excellent ingredient in dishes, especially desserts like dark chocolate preparations or even a refreshing banana sorbet infused with the beer.

Castle Brewery Van Honsebrouck has always prioritised quality and tradition, and Bacchus Kriekenbier is a shining example of this commitment. Whether you're a seasoned beer lover or a newcomer eager to explore the diverse world of Belgian beers, Bacchus Kriekenbier promises an unforgettable experience. So, why wait? Purchase online or in-store now and embark on a Belgian beer adventure like no other.
