Blivande kassako…

På torsdag har De la Senne premiär på sin ‘nya’ hantverkslager Zenne Pils. Om jag inte är helt ute och cyklar är det en likadan eller ytterst snarlik produkt jag berättade om för två månader sen som då gick under namnet Wadesda Lager.

Det har tisslats och tasslats om denna nya lageröl en tid nu och faktum är att bryggeriet behöver en storsäljare som bidrar till att finansiera den kommande flytten till deras nya lokaler samt en brygd som tilltalar många.

Nedan finner ni en ofiltrerad version av denna ofiltrerade underjästa produkts pressmeddelande och jag skulle inte bli förvånad om den dyker upp i Sverige under första halvan av 2020:

Brasserie de la Senne presents an unfiltered craft pils: ZENNE PILS!

Brussels formerly counted a fair number of famous pils breweries, with Wiels by Wielemans, Ekla by Vandenheuvel, Jager by Roelants, and many more. Brasserie de la Senne revives this tradition of Brussels pils and presents Zenne Pils, an unfiltered, unpasteurised craft pils. Eric Toft, brewmaster from Schönram brewery in Bavaria and one of the greatest masters of the style, has coached the Senne brewers about the traditional brewing methods of this peculiar bottom-fermented beer, iconic in Germany and in the Czech Republic.

Zenne Pils was brewed with the traditional method of decoction. This adds depth and complexity to its malty character, and makes it very nicely drinkable. It is neither pasteurised nor filtered, which makes it naturally hazy at low temperatures. It develops a fine bitterness, more pronounced than that of the “pils” we are used to drink in Belgium today. Moreover, it is generously hopped with old varieties of German hops that are considered to be the most noble ones, and which the Brasserie de la Senne brewmaster directly selected at one of the best hop growers’ of the South of Germany. 4,9% abv, keg only.

The logo was designed by the brewery’s resident artist, Jean Goovaerts. The Brussels pentagon recalls our national symbol, the Atomium, as well as -and most importantly- the imminent move of the brewery to its new site of Tour & Taxis, situated in the “1000 Brussels” commune.

Zenne Pils will be officially presented this Thursday, December 5th, at the Brussels café Booze ’n’ Blues in the city centre. Address of the day: Rue des Riches-Claires 20, 1000 Brussels.
