Originally called "Ouden Tripel", this ancient beer has found a new élan as a regional specialty under its current name: "VanderGhinste Roodbruin".
The main ingredients of our Vanderghinste Roodbruin are malted barley, wheat, hops, water, and caramelized malts. These are used to brew a top-fermented beer.
Blending this beer with lambic beer aged in oak barrels for 18 months, results in this specific West Flanders Red-brown beer. Its typical flavour is characterized by a well-balanced, hardly noticeable sourness.
This first flavour impression is soon followed by a second pleasant discovery: a slight bitterness followed by a hint of sweetness.
At the World Beer Awards 2015 VanderGhinste Roodbruin is elected World's Best Dark Beer!
