Blond Bier - Blonde Beer



The Beer

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.

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.
