Three "Best Beer in the World" titles at the WBA
October 4th, 2013
On September 27th at the World Beer Awards in London, Seigneuriale won the World's Best Belgian Style Ale award, Quatre-Centième was declared World's Best Belgian Style Blonde, and Éphémère Apple, World's Best Fruit Flavoured Beer. Moreover, La Fin du Monde and Blanche de Chambly won each a Best American award in their categorie.
After a blind tasting of the top beers from around the world, Seigneuriale has been described as " Orange and honey on the nose. Honeyed flavour with a peachy sweetness on the palate. Lots of ripe bananas. Slight peppery hops. Alcohol sweetness starts to kick in. Very warming." Quatre-Centième struck the judges with his "Pineapple on the nose. Quite caramelly, with lemon, orange and a bit of spice. Good fruity taste, well balanced with sweet and sour notes. " Éphémère Apple, for its part, has been appreciated for its candy sweet aroma, apple and rhubarb, pear and peach. Good balance between bitter and sour. Warming.”
