De Korninck Brewery is based in Antwerp Belgium and its Antwerp pale ale is its primary beer. It, like all Belgian beers is traditionally served in a chalice shaped glass specific to this beer, called a ‘bollecke‘. In Antwerp the order is “a bolleke de Koninck“.
It is a light chestnut coloured ale with toffee and malt aromas. It has a pleasant caramel malt taste. A very pleasant ale not as heavy as some Belgian brune ales.
This is an award winning Belgian White beer produced by Brasserie du Bocq in Pernode in the Ardennes region of Belgium. This wheat beer is similar to the more well known Hoegaarden beer.

This weissbier has a pale lemon blonde colour and cloudiness typical of such beers, with a fresh sharp characteristic aroma, making it an ideal beer for hot summer days.
The taste is a refreshing sharp sweetness with spicy tones from Coriander and bitter orange, with an aftertaste of malt sweetness.This beer has won the world beer award 2009, for best wheat beer and is certainly a beer to seek out.
