Pius X

Created in 2003 by the son of "local Bruges history" chairman Chris Weymeys - Pius X is still brewed 3 times a year, a co-operation between brewmaster Wim Saeyens from De Graal and locals Kristof and Nicholas.

This magnificent and mighty beer pours a really attractive murky deep amber, topped by a dense, thick, rich and creamy white head that ever so slowly fades to thin covering.

Beautiful sweet caramel aroma coupled with biscuity malts, warming spices and fresh aromatic herbal notes.

Taste follows the aroma with full bodied sweet caramel malts, honey, a nice alcohol warmth, a good dose of  spicing is also evident (ginger and clove) also present are balanced, aromatic earthy hops in the finish.

An outstanding beer and one that will reward the hunt......a massive thank-you to Filip.
