by Brasserie Du Bocq

Brasserie Du Bocq was founded in 1858 by brewer Martin Belot.  ‘Gauloise’ was the first beer he produced, paying tribute to the Gallic brewing know-how.

The Christmas seasonal is ruby red colour with a lively head of fine bubbles.  The aroma is full of sweet dark fruit notes, with a sherry hint and some slight spicing.

It is very much like a Belgian dubbel, with the addition of some spicing.  Dangerously easy to drink, it has a sweet malty body which seems balanced by the gentle spices with cinnamon and a touch of licorice.  It is sweet without being cloying.

The beer has previously been known as ‘Bocq Christmas’ and ‘Regal Christmas’, before being incorporated under the ‘Gauloise’ label.
