Bosteels DeuS (Brut des Flandres)
Bosteels DeuS is a Bière de Champagne/Bière Brut, Cuvée Prestige 2011. Opened on New Year’s Eve 2015/2016.
The beer pours with an amazing amount of champagne like bubbles, perfect thin white head that stays throughout the pour, and a lightly golden color. The aroma is light, sweet and fruity, like a perfect combination of a musty Belgian Saison and Tripel. On the taste is slightly tart apples and pears, sweet grain, alcohol sting, and some slight banana. The beer feels and tastes a bit white wine/champagne like, which is the whole point it seems.
I understand the hefty price tag given the complex production method of this beer. It has been done exceptionally well, but not is not so impressive to get me to drop that kind of money on a regular basis. This is, however, a perfect beer to pick up to celebrate special occasions, like ringing in the new year!
