I had a friend bring this home from a Belgium trip for me at Christmas. I have looked everywhere I can in Wisconsin and still couldn't find this beer anywhere! It is my absolute favorite beer, especially my favorite wheat beer. I bought 12 from this shop and probably will treat myself again sometime soon to another 12 pack. My favorite beer!
I read about Mr. Speranza and his beer trip. I then found the Youtube video about his trip thereafter to Belgium. I finally was talking to a neighbor about it and thought, I should try that beer. I ordered a 6 pack of the beer and have only drank 2 beers so far. I find the blend very pleasant and hope that it is the original blend found back in 1944. I also would like to note that the packing was fantastic to ship rom Belgium to the US. I offer only one caveat. I thought each beer came with a helmut in my order. No, the helmuts are extra, picture description is misleading.
This was a great find as Palm ale is one of my favorites but hasn't been available for some time. This is a smooth robust ale with great taste and beautiful color. It has become one of my favorites and I believe anyone trying this ale will agree. It is light and refreshing without the bitter after taste of IPA. It does have a hint of hops in the end but is not bitter and over whelming like an IPA. This beer is great on a hot day after exercise or yard work. I will definitely have this in my beer fridge.
I surprised my husband with 12 bottles of the Leffe Tripel because it's not sold where we live. Unfortunately, I only received 11 bottles. I sent an email from an earlier correspondence, but have yet to receive any reply, so this is why I gave it 3 stars. If I receive a reply and get another bottle sent to me or I receive a credit, I would gladly change it to at least 4 stars because my husband really likes this beer.
The beer was intact, but the glass was broken. I’ve sent 3 or 4 emails but have not received an email response. They did credit my card, but I don’t know if it’s for this or the Karmeliet glass that never arrived. Very frustrating and disappointing.
I ordered two. One arrived in perfect shape but the second one never arrived. I’ve sent 3 or 4 emails and have not received an email response. They did issue a credit to my card, but I don’t know if it’s for this missing glass or the Brugse Zot glass that arrived broken. Very frustrating.
I have loved the Sirop de Liege since I was just a small boy. My mother was born in Verviers, Belgium and I had this product for breakfast every morning as long as we lived with my grandparents in Verviers in the early 60's. I ordered this product to relive my childhood memories and I was not disappointed. I still love it.
