Big white head. Cloudy (unfiltered, unpasteurized, bottle-conditioned). Intense hop aroma (use of Amarillo hops for dry-hopping). Malty sweetness in the background. Estery fruitiness clearly shines through signaling the arrival of something unusual. Strong, complex hops flavor. High but not outlandish, bitterness. Big clean malty body. Again, estery flowery-fruitiness provides an astonishing third dimension. Long, lingering bitterness beautifully balanced with malt sweetness, and a fruity dry finish.
The unusually pleasant hoppiness of this Belgian-style ale make it an ideal match for some spicier hearty fare such as beef chili, dry rubbed pork ribs, and heavily spiced Thai dishes.
With a lovely golden color with a rich, lingering head, La Chouffe's flavor is characterized by a most pleasant lemon grass aroma and taste, a result of an addition of the spice coriander.
The characteristic bready, fruity complexity of this beer combined with its mellow, rounded finish make it an exceptional pairing for steamed, marinated mussels, grilled lobster tail, and gamier meats such as venison or wild boar.
Bottle conditioned, flavorful rich brown colored ale with a big, malty flavor and a characteristic Belgian round, fluffy finish.
This dark Scotch style ale has an affinity for lamb, game birds and partner well with cream sauces such as Alfredo and carbonara. Great with roasted, grilled and steamed vegetables. Excellent with créme brulee and butter cookies.
Brewed with all natural ingredients, including Caramel, Pilsen and Munich barley malts, and Saaz, Kent and Hallertau hops. Beer authority Michael Jackson describes Corsendonk® Abbey Brown Ale as "A strong, Burgundy-colored ale in the style of the classic Trappist brews of Belgium. Has a very distinctive bouquet: yeasty, fruity and slightly smoky. In palate, it has notes of port, raisins and black chocolate. Matures greatly with age, becoming softer, smoother and deeper in palate. Ideally, should be stored for at least a year, and could mature for at least five."

Brewed with all natural ingredients, including 93% barley malts (Plaisant and Triumph) and 7% wheat, and Styrian Goldings, Hallertau Herzbrucker and Kent Challenger hops. Beer authority Michael Jackson describes Corsendonk® Abbey Pale Ale as "Dry, with a great deal of finesse. A deceptively potent ale in the golden, "Triple" strength style of Belgium's Trappist monks. It has a very big head indeed - pour it gently - and a very clean palate, beginning with a dry, lightly citric fruitiness, and finishing with a distinctive and delicate, perfumy, hop character.
A dry, sparkling beer that has the finesse of Brut Champagne, becoming drier as it matures. Enjoy it before, during and after meals, with fish, fowl, seafood and pasta. It's a savory complement to traditional Belgian moules & frites (mussels and fries), and full-flavored and spicy grilled foods. Best served at 50°F.

It's aroma of chocolate malt & spiciness is reminiscent of the wonderful smells of holiday baking in Mom's kitchen. Silky smooth on the palate, it's predominantly malty, with smoky, spicy and citrusy notes and a long, lingering finish that is lightly tart and malty. Bottle conditioned for a fresh, lively taste. Round and well balanced, it's a welcome addition to holiday tables and beyond.
Enjoy it as a complement to red meat, game and dishes like cassoulet, or a contrast to white meats and seafood. Enjoy its malty richness with fruit pies, crème brûlée and bread pudding. Best served at 55°F.
The ale by which all others should be measured.

Sparkling Ale contains no additives or preservatives.
Guaranteed to turn heads, this is the beer that inspired a new generation of ale drinkers. With its fruity character, and robust flavor, Coopers Pale Ale is perfect for every occasion.

This cloudy residue can be stirred through the beer by tipping or rolling the bottle before drinking. Pale Ale has no additives or preservatives.
This English Pale Ale pairs nicely with clear broth based soups, salted almonds, game birds and all sorts of seafood. This brew also offers a nice balance to spicier Indian and Cajun foods.
