Broederlijke Liefde by De Proefbrouwerij (bvba Andelot)
Saison / Farmhouse Ale
8.00 % ABV

Brian O’Reilly of Sly Fox Brewing Company joins Dirk Naudts to create the fifth brew in the De Proef Brewmaster’s Collaboration series. This year’s collaboration celebrates the great brewing cultures of both Philadelphia and Gent.

Broederlijke Liefde (Brotherly Love) is a slightly higher gravity interpretation of the saison style. It is fermented with two yeasts – a classic saison yeast as well as brettanomyces from an original gravity of 1066 (16.5 plato). These yeasts yield a dry and slightly spicy ale with a strong hint of farmhouse character that will continue to develop with age. The use of Target and Styrian Golding hops at 37 IBUs add floral aromatics and a balancing bitterness.

Broederlijke Liefde if the official Belgian collaboration ale of Philly Beer Week 2011. If you can’t join us in Philadelphia for our annual celebration in June please enjoy this creation in your own celebration of the international brewing community.

(Served in a tulip glass)
A- This beer pours a yellowish-orange body with a very slight hazy to it. Each additional pour grows hazier. There is a gentle carbonation supporting a cobweb thick bubble mass of snow white head. A lovely Belgian lace forms after each sip.

S- The full saison yeasty character has fresh dandelion flowers and floral hops blending with a wet stones and fresh rain aroma in the finish.

T- The classic fruity sasion yeasty esters have some bright herbal pungent hops to follow with a nice cheese rind brett character grown in the dry finish. There is a nice pungent dandelion flowers and fresh cut alfalfa taste that lingers into a great brett grapefruit pith aftertaste.

M- The medium-light mouthfeel has a nice spicy fizz in the finish that really enhances the flavors in the finish.

O- This beer has a full pungent hops blended with great saison yeast character and nice aged brett flavors. This reminds me of summer in a glass. It is a beer you could just sniff and sniff and the flavor is even more delicious.
