Grimbergen Blonde , Brouwerij Alken-Maes

In the year 1128 St. Norbert built an abbey for the Norbertine order in the Brabant town of Grimbergen. Apart from observing their contemplative and religious tasks the friars applied themselves to the art of brewing. The abbey was known for its hospitality and provided a safe shelter for pilgrims and travellers in those often tumultuous times. The Norbertines underlined their hospitality by serving their home-brewed beer. The recipe was formulated with great care and precision. Throughout the centuries the friars passed on the recipe to the next generation. The high-fermentation Grimbergen beers are now brewed by Alken-Maes with quite as much attention to tradition and quality. The Grimbergen Abbey was destroyed several times by fire, but each time it was rebuilt again. The phoenix symbolises this resurgence. The secret of Grimbergen beer was also preserved and is still cherished.
Grimbergen is a beer filled with passion.

Flavour: Ochre-coloured abbey beer, light fruit, good balance between sweet and bitter and a full, rounded flavour.
