Bières de Table are not the heavy hitters Belgium is so famous for—but are central to Belgian beer culture because they are how Belgians learn to appreciate beer. They are typically enjoyed with home-cooked meals at the family dining table. There is no finer example of the style than Avril. USDA- certified organic. Dupont brewer Olivier Dedeycker believes that the original saisons were around this gravity. Session beer specialists like Lew Bryson love this. Who needs an industrial lager when this light, bright, flavorful beauty exists?
Avril is aromatic like fresh bread, full in the mouth and light on the finish. It is exceptionally flavorful given its low alcohol. Eminently sessionable.
Avril has been named one of the “100 Beers to Try Before You Die” by Chris Schonberger at Complex Media’s site First We Feast. We are honored that 12 Vanberg & DeWulf made the coveted list. “Avril, an organic bière de table, weighs in at 3.5 percent ABV, yet is sturdy and nuanced. Dupont brewer Olivier Dedeycker believes that the original saisons were around this gravity. Session beer specialists like Lew Bryson love this. Who needs an industrial lager when this light, bright, flavorful beauty exists?”
Great with food!
- Abe Conlon, a Chicago chef of great talent, suggests it with deep-fried pig’s ear and pork pie, or how about raw surf clam, fried mussels, cucumber, toasted coriander, preserved lemon and carrot lime curd.
