Blonde with copper reflections, topped with a generous head, Hopus derives from a secret batch brewed for the marriage of Paul Lefebvre. It has a unique and original nose, a blend of vegetal, citrus and fruit notes. The attack is bold, with an intense bitterness accompanied by a plethora of hopped notes. On the palate, the fruity top-fermented aromas and the malted flavours perfectly balance the initial taste without masking it. The bitter aftertaste is persistent but not disturbing.

The origin of the Lefebvre brewery goes back to 1876 with Jules Lefebvre. He supplied beverages to the pubs around the big stone extraction of Quenast. In 1921, Auguste Lefebvre, Jules‘ son, moves the brewery to a neighboring hill in order to avoid the annual floods of the Senne. In the following years, Gaston Lefebvre, the third generation, modernized the brewery by starting the bottling of beer.
