Our tip : the Lesse Brewery

Description

Eprave houses the recently created Lesse brewery, a cooperative with a social purpose started in 2011 by a bunch of old friends that live in the area.

The brewery produces La Cambrée, which recently won an award in the category ‘amber beers with a moderate alcohol content’(6 to 8°). The Cambrée is a dark ginger coloured beer. The beer is a bit cloudy and has thick and smooth head. It has a delicate smoky aroma, a sweet and sour flavour and a hint of bitterness in the aftertaste.

The brewery also produces La Chinette, a blond beer with 6° alcohol content. The golden blond Chinette is slightly bitter, with a pleasant fruit aroma (citrus). Its name stems from the nickname that was given to the villagers of Buissonville in the early 20th century: the villagers loved to tease, which is why they were dubbed ‘Chinards de Buissonville’ (Chiner is Walloon dialect for ‘to tease’).

Then comes the Rouge-Croix; a brown beer with a 7,5° alcohol percentage. This high fermentation beer is fermented a second time in the bottle. You can taste the roasted aromas of malt and chocolate, as well a hint of Curacao. The beer is named after a Merovingian graveyard, la Rouge-Croix (i.e the ‘red cross’), in Eprave.

The brewery also produces the HIVEResse : dark brown and dense, it has a creamy head and is lightly sparkling. It has a spicy aroma, with distinctive notes of gingerbread, liquorice, etc.

And, last but definitely not least - the Marie Blanche, the brewery’s most recent creation. It's a white beer, with an abundant white head, sparkling and slightly bitter. It has a refreshing, slightly acid taste, and is best served cool. It has a very distinct citrus taste and aroma. A perfect drink for those balmy summer days!

You can visit the brewery by appointment, and the beers can be tasted in many local pubs and restaurants.
