by De Dochter van de Korenaar

Noblesse was the first beer to be produced by brewer Ronald at his lovely small brewery De Dochter van de Korenaar.

It is a blond ale with an inviting copper-orange body, supporting a foamy white head. The aroma is of crisp light malts and soft earthy hops with a hint of summer fruits in the Belgian yeast.

The beer is well balanced in the taste.  Sweetness from the bready malts backed by a slight fruity touch offsets the pleasant hop bite with a little spice note.  The beer represents the growing tendency of Belgian brewers to utilise an increasing amount of hops.  A good level of carbonation leads to a crisp mouthfeel as the beer finishes bone dry, with a lovely layered bitter aftertaste.

Brewery Fact: the brewery name roughly translates to 'The Daughter of the Ear of Corn, being an old Flemish term for beer.  The phrase is said to have come from ancient chronicles which recorded Emperor Charles V's preference for the 'juice of the daughter of the ear of corn' (beer being made from grains) over the 'blood of grapes' (wine). 

Availability : Limited in 330ml bottles only.
