Belfius combines two of Belgium’s well-known beer styles: a spontaneously fermented ale and a saison. The spontaneously fermented ale is also known as Allagash’s Coolship beer. The name comes from a key brewing tool - the coolship - that allows the beer to be inoculated with wild yeast and other microbiota. After inoculation, the beer ages in oak barrels for up to three years. The second beer in the blend is Allagash’s Saison, a dry ale defined by its notes of citrus and peppery spice. Blended together, they create a golden beer with an herbal aroma that contains both spice and tart fruit. Its taste is one of restrained sourness rounded out by a hint of oak.
