Ypres is a dark beer brewed at Struise Brouwers. It has a tiny white head. Smells like Kriek, gushes out of the bottle. Long acid finish with a wine note. It also tastes like raisins and has a light metallic note. An original beer. Seems like a mix between "Oud Bruin" and the new generation of "Bruin". This Ypres was first still on Burgundy cask followed by a maturation on Wild Turkey Bourbon barrels. Double barrel aging.
Serving temperature: 5°C
During World War I, Ypres was the centre of intense and sustained battles between the German and the Allied forces. During the war, due to it being hard to pronounce in English, British troops nicknamed the city "wipers".
The label in black / white refers to the trench war, WW-I, which in Ypres and surroundings found many relics. A tribute to the dead and a tribute to this historic beer type from this region.
