Monsieur Rock is a blond beer with a 6.6% alcohol content. It is brewed using only 4 ingredients: Pilsner malt, aromatic hops, water, and a specially selected bottom-fermenting yeast.
This very low-temperature, bottom-fermented beer is produced using the same methods as were used to make certain special beers more than 40 years ago, making it a traditional beer brewed using modern techniques.
The fermenting period lasts for over a week, and the beer matures in a lagering tank at a low temperature in the presence of aromatic hops. A specific yeast strain is used for bottle fermentation.
With its particularly Belgian character, English speakers like to say it has a « Belgian nose ».
After the initial light malt flavour, there is a perceptible lingering bitter taste. It is light and very refreshing in the mouth; smooth, with a dry, pleasant aftertaste. Beautifully attenuated, it offers an unparalleled complexity of flavours. Monsieur Rock offers a sublime example of delicacy for experienced tasters.
In the nose, we have delicious aromas of fine hops accentuated by a flowery scent from the yeast and a very light peppery touch. Sumptuous for the subtlety of its flavours, very intense in the nose combined with a surprising lightness of aroma.
In short, beer the way it should always be.
