Beery Christmas Day 16: Brussels Beer Project Tatie Tatin

Brussels Beer Project Tatie Tatin

Founded in 2013 as a crowdfunding project, Brussels Beer Project’s philosophy is to take classic Belgian Beer Styles and bring them kicking and screaming into the 21st Century. Belgian Beer has no shortage of classic brews to choose from, but the guys at BBP thought the whole Belgian scene needed shaking up a bit.

BBP: Leave the abbey, join the playground!

Taking classic Belgian Pale Ales, Flanders Red Ales, deep, dark, chewy Quadrupels, and more, Brussels Beer Project have made each style their own, and come up with a few new ones along the way, like True and False, possibly the world’s first White Imperial Stout?!?

Whatever style they choose, each beer blends hundreds of years of Belgian brewing tradition with some modern flavours and just a pinch of humour to make some truly unforgettable brews! As the guys (and gals) at BBP would say, ""Leave the abbey, join the playground!"

Apple tart …in a bottle?

Tatie Tatin – BBP’s adventurous Abbaye-style Tripel brewed with apples - is inspired by the classic French Tarte Tatin dessert, mixing warm, sticky liqueur and warm, sticky toffee-apple notes for a gorgeously warm, sticky ensemble!

The deep caramel brown body and tan head release thick waves of rich brown sugar with hints of warm apple pie, vanilla and spicy plum jam for a big, boozy assault on the senses.

The richly warming nose is echoed on the rich, chewy palate, with spiced raisins in syrup and a big sherry wine booziness. This sumptuous fortified wine and apple brandy character is balanced by soft herbal liqueur tones and a faint burnt sugar bitterness to cut through the apple crumble sweetness and take you to a wonderfully decadent finish. "How d'ya like them apples?"

Triple or Tripel?

Triple – sometimes written using the Flemish spelling, Tripel – is a beer style that goes back to the Low Countries in the middle ages. Although the origins of the name are unclear, it is widely believed that Triple, Double and Enkel - single - refer to the first, second and third brewing with the same grain. With each brew less sugar was released from the grain resulting in progressively weaker beers. For easy recognition, these were marked XXX for Tripel, the strongest, XX for Dubbel, and X for Enkel - the third rinse with the least fermentable sugar and therefore the lowest alcohol content, and the stuff you'd drink during the day because it was safer than water. Quadrupel is a relatively recent invention by the De Koningshave brewery who began brewing their La Trappe Quadrupel as an extra-strong Trappist beer.

Turbocharged apple tart in a bottle!!!

Tatie Tatin Triple is the little sister to BBP's Tante Tatin Quadrupel, so when there's no more Beery Christmas beers left - try not to think about it, it'll only upset you - the good news is that you can get your hands on a turbocharged version of this surprising beer!
