Tournay is a golden white beer with 6.7% alcohol content. It is refermented in the bottle and made from only natural ingredients: water, two malts, four hops, yeast and a little sugar for the fermentation in the bottle. Unfiltered and unpasteurised.
Tournay is a very well-balanced beer, the flower hops used during the brew giving it a slightly dry, bitter aftertaste.
Ideally, Tournay should be drunk at a temperature of between 8 and 10°C and kept upright in the cellar.
Balance! That’s what we were looking for and that’s what we’ve achieved with a round but light beer with a perfect degree of bitterness. Savour it as an aperitif with friends and tell them how it was born…
Following the relaunch of the brewery in 2003, we have visited many breweries and discussed things with many seasoned or debutant brewers. Memorable visits during which the tendencies for our first beer were chosen: we wanted to produce a blonde beer, with too not strong an alcohol percent, with personality but above all remaining well balanced.
To prevent it from being overly hopped, we had chosen four American hops, coherent between themselves, and subtly dosed. And to give our beer body, we opted for a malt charge of 100% barley malt, without any other cereal, nor any added sugar.
At the end of several months of research, we were finally ready to create a brew in our newly installed brewing room. It took place on 01 May 2004, and Tournay Blonde was born! Show Less
