Aged in sauvignon blanc barrels

This Fourchette Grand Cru builds on the classic Fourchette Beer, but has been given a unique twist. For this special edition, the beer was aged for more than 20 months in Sauvignon Blanc barrels.

This prolonged aging in oak barrels creates an extraordinary flavor profile. When tasting this beer, you will discover subtle slightly sour notes and a hint of agrumes. The aging in wine barrels gave the beer a refreshing dimension. It is soft yet powerful, complex but also balanced. Fourchette is a deliberate choice that is always the right one. It is simply the most extraordinary beer in existence.

The art of enjoyment

“This beer is not only a masterpiece of craftsmanship and passion, even top chefs recognize the unique qualities of this beer.” According to Jef Versele, owner of Vansteenberge Brewery, it is possibly among the very best beer he has ever brewed.

It is a tribute to the harmony between brewing art and culinary creativity. He adds: “It is a boundless dedication to the art of enjoyment and an unparalleled taste experience that transcends culinary standards.”
