Cuvée des Trolls
The Cuvée des Trolls first saw the light in 2000, fermenting in the tanks of microbrewery Le Brasse-Temps, a subsidiary of Dubuisson based in Louvain-La-Neuve. This outsider brew, initially aimed at the youth market, quickly achieved success for the brewery.
The Cuvée des Trolls makes for a great starter beer, treading the path between a heavy but quaffable beer and a light degustation beer. This blonde brew is unfiltered, and so naturally cloudy. It is full in the mouth, both fresh-tasting and mild, with plenty of fruity citrus and perfumed aromas. That's thanks to the addition of dried orange zest to this beer's ingredient list.
The Cuvée des Trolls is an unfiltered, top-fermented beer.
Water drawn from the brewery's well, sugar, dried orange peel, barley malt, hops and yeast.

Character, Tastes & Aromas
The addition of dried orange peel at the boiling stage brings a pleasantly fruity aroma to the fore. It harmonises quite beautifully with the well-rounded and delicate taste of this beer.
The Cuvée des Trolls is suitable for culinary use. This slightly bitter beer makes a great addition to cooking juices, sauces or fish and meat marinades. The Cuvée des Trolls can also be added to salad vinaigrettes or even used in a mayonnaise.
