Rich malt and stone fruit flavours and a surprisingly crisp finish make 8° a complex and compelling brew. The drinker is greeted by aromas of plum and clove, produced by a special yeast from West Flanders. This is followed by the flavour of date sugar and English crystal malt and capped by a brisk, lightly tart finish, the result of a brief lactic fermentation.
Dageraad 8° is fermented with Belgian yeast and bottle-conditioned for natural carbonation, and an extra layer of complexity. Pour with care to leave the yeast sediment in the bottle.
