Beer of mixed fermentation, matured for 18 months on oak barrels. The typical taste is characterised by a balance in the fruitiness of the high fermentation with the gentle acidity of the spontaneous fermentation beer. It has a refreshing and pronounced thirst-quenching after-taste.
BreweryOmer Vander Ghinste
It all started in 1892, when Remi Vander Ghinste bought a house with accompanying buildings from a brewer for his 23-year-old son, Omer. That same year, the first barrels of Ouden Tripel (now VanderGhinste Oud Bruin) rolled out across the cobblestones of Bellegem. Omer delivered his beers by horse and cart in the region of Kortrijk. As brands didn’t exist at that time, he gave the beers his own name: the “bieren Omer Vander Ghinste”.
