Monk's Café Flemish Sour Ale
is the Van Steenberge Brewery's
Bios Vlaamse Bourgogne
("Flemish Burgundy"), brewed in Belgium and bottled under private label for Monk's Café in Philadelphia.
Young and old oak-aged beers are blended to make this Oud Bruin style sour ale. Deep brown with ruby highlights and a tan head, its aroma features notes of sour cherry and caramel; taste is balsamic and fruity and well-balanced between sweet and tart. Light in body, with a slightly drying finish and an ABV of 5.5%, it's a very refreshing example of the style.
Located in Ertvelde, a village in the East Flanders region of Belgium, the
Van Steenberge Brewery
began in 1784 as a farm brewery (like many hundreds of others in the region) selling beer to local cafes and pubs.
The brewcraft evident in the ales produced resulted in increasing demand; over time, beer revenue significantly outpaced farming revenue, allowing the Van Steenberge heirs to concentrate fully on the brew business.
Today, still family-owned in the sixth generation, the Van Steenberge Brewery distributes award winning ales to more than a dozen countries including Italy, Spain, and the United States.
