A tAste As rich As its history GriMBerGeN BLoNDe (6,7°) With a slightly fruity flavour, Grimbergen Blonde offers you a great balance between sweetness and bitterness. Its full, round flavour makes it a highly popular beer.

GriMBerGeN DoUBLe (6,5°) This beer, with a dark red colour close to that of a Burgundy, has a very full bittersweet taste with a subtle hint of caramel. This makes it a generous double-fermented beer.

GriMBerGeN GoLD (8°) Grimbergen Gold 8° is a strong blonde beer full of character thanks to aromatic hops, refermented in the bottle and yet very accessible.

GriMBerGeN triPLe (9°) A beer with a deep ochre colour and a generous, full-bodied, bittersweet taste. Its typical “triple” flavour comes from light brown sugar and a subtle mixture of sweet and bitter hops.

GriMBerGeN oPtiMo BrUNo (10°) This dark amber beer has a flavour that is both sweet and bitter, and exceptionally round, with a powerful, alcoholic finish due to its substantial density. Double fermentation gives it a perfect balance between hops and malt.
