Described by Brasserie Minne as a "hoppy barley wine", Ardenne Spirit Old Ale (ABV 9.5%) is brewed with pure malt (no added sugar) and three varieties of hops: Nelson Sauvin, Citra, and Mosaic, plus the same yeast strain as Orval.

Deep garnet in color with a light tan head, it offers aromas of raisins, jammy fruit, bitter citrus, and caramel. Taste is rich and malty -- with notes of sherry, toffee, white pepper, and sweet figs -- balanced by an agreeable bitterness. Ratebeer.com rating: 96 (out of 100) (capped) 11.2 oz bottle.


Brasserie Minne (formerly Brasserie de Bastogne) is part of the new wave of Belgian microbreweries. For a dozen years or so, Philippe Minne, an engineer by trade, was a hobby brewer, learning all the technical aspects of brewing – a great start for a fledgling professional brewer.

In search of a location to set up their own brewery, Philippe and his wife Catherine met organic farmer Philippe Meurisse; in 2008 the three established a brewery at a farm near the town of Bastogne, for which the brewery is named.

A sustainable way of doing business and a focus on regional products are paramount for this brewery. At the heart of Brasserie de Bastogne's philosophy is the aim to produce balanced, artisanal beers with character and an uncompromisingly pure taste.

After trying many Belgium ales, I keep coming back to this selection. Very malty and strong (9.5%). Just one after work, and I'm good for the evening.
