Slaefke, Aughems Fluytjesbier
Blond Triple of 7,5 % ABV
During the Middle Ages, salesmen in Europe were often attacked, kidnapped and sold as slaves to Muslim pirates on the Mediterranean Sea. Because of those anti-Christians, a new order of monks was created : The Holy Trinity (Trinataniers) with the sole purpose of ransoming Christian captives. This order was very strong in the area around Bruges. When the slaves became free and returned home, their arrival was announced by playing cheerful music on a flute. Every year, on the first Sunday after Pentecost, this tradition relives in the village of Ouwegem. The village already have traditional sweets you can whistle on, now they have a special beer to honour the festivities.
The Story Behind The Beer
This beer recipe has been developped in 2007 by the freelance brewers Alex and Yannick. Are they really freelance or rather slaves of the brewery ? After numerous trials they came to this final recipe. This recipe is used exclusively by the organisation of the yearly festivities in Ouwegem.
The label has been designed by publi Michels with the cooperation of Marc De Bel and Chris Snoeck. The picture on the label is a wooden statue of a slave which can be found at the church in the village of Ouwegem.
This beer has a fruity nose, malty and fruity flavor that quickly makes place for a nice hopbitterness
