by Brouwerij De Graal

De Graal is a great example of a Belgian Huisbrouwerij (House Brewery). An oversized shed at the rear of a residential property, situated in the middle of a small village in the Flemish Ardennes made this an interesting search the first time we visited.  But it was well worth the effort!

The De Graal Triverius is designated as a blonde wheat beer, so an example of a beer traversing two distinct styles.

It is an impressive yellow golden colour, and much clearer than a normal wheat beer, but is capped by the characteristic fluffy white head. The aroma exhibits a mix of coriander, citrus, grassy hops and bready yeast.

The taste is clean with pleasant spiciness. The citrus flavours are somewhat subdued, along with soft biscuit malts. The lack of sweetness leads to a crisp dry finish, with more than a hint of hop bitterness.
