Brouwerij Bosteels makes its DeuS Brut des Flandres (ABV 11.5%) according to the elegant, lengthy, and labor-intensive "méthode champenoise", which produces the best sparkling beverages in the world.

Brewed in Belgium with summer barley, it is first fermented with specially selected yeast, then matured in a second fermentation.

It then travels to the Champagne region of France, where it is bottled with the addition of fermentable sugars and carefully selected yeast for refermentation (a third fermentation).

DeuS spends 12 months in French caves, where the bottles are aged and conditioned to perfection. Riddling is a process wherein the bottles are racked and turned daily to detach the yeast sediment from the shoulder of the bottle and direct it to the neck---the bottles end up vertical, with the neck downward. Then the neck is frozen, and the plug of frozen yeast is pushed out by the pressure in the bottle (dégorgement). For each 12 bottles produced, one is used to manually fill the others to the proper level ("dosing") after the losses from dégorgement. Finally the bottles are corked and dressed for sale.

DeuS has the shimmer and life of a grand Champagne. Everything you know about how true Champagne is made is also true of DeuS, except that it's a beer and not a wine! DeuS is sparklingly clear and effervescent with a beguiling, deep and complex aroma of lavender, pepper, lemon and mint. On the palate DeuS is light and fleeting---lively with a lean and restrained malt character, a cascade of herbal flavors, and a dry, crisp elegant finish---the best of both worlds!

Store in a cool, dark environment, and serve ice cold, pouring gently into chilled flute glasses. Excellent for celebration, as an aperitif, with dessert, and as an accompaniment to fine food. rating: 96 (out of 100) 25.4 oz (corked) bottle.

The bottle by itself is almost like something from a different era when bottles were collected and glass blowers were artists. The beer is unique in taste and texture making it a great choice to drink from a tulip glass. Would love revisiting this beer and breakdown the different nuances it gives the pallete.

Truly the champagne of beer

This is an amazing beer, with little champagne bubbles and a nice full flavor, without being overwhelming. Our favorite.
