De Glazen Toren D'Erpe Mere Saison 750

Brewery De Glazen Toren is a Belgian brewery located in Mere , a district of Erpe-Mere near Aalst . Teacher and beer enthusiast Jef Van den Steen got to know soulmate Dirk De Pauw at the end of the 1980s via the municipal politics in Erpe-Mere. They started brewing themselves by way of hobby and decided to take the brewing course at Ghent University College CTL (today University College Ghent ) to better their brewing knowledge. After this, the quality of their beer improved. The success of these hobby brothers made them think of setting up a more professional brewery, without giving up their main profession. In the end, the company De Glazen Toren was founded in 2002, after which the pair got the reinforcement of a third partner, Marc De Neef. The brewery officially started in 2004 with the first beer, Saison d'Erpe-Mere.
On to the Tasting Notes:
Saison d’Erpe-Mere was the first beer brewed by De Glazen Toern. Saison is a blonde beer brewed according to the ancient Saison tradition of the province of Hainaut. The rench sounding name of the beer clearly refers to this. It is brewed exclusively with natural ingredients: artesian water, barley, and wheat malts, liquid sugar, hops and yeast. The result is a dry, hoppy, gruity, and slightly veiled beer with 7.5% abv. The Saison, unusually for this style, doesn’t use any herbs or spices to create its fruity and spicy profile. The combination of spicy Hallertau hops and cmplex Saison yeast is enough to create deep flavors in this refreshing and effervescent beer. The 750ml bottles are presented in a self-designed paper wrapper in white, yellow, and green. Enjoy this old-world offering from this newly developed Belgian Brewery! Cheers!
