Tumulus Aura

Début 2012
Vol. Alc.: 5,5 %
Stamwort: 13 °Plato
Description: The Tumulus Aura is the lighter brother of the Tumulus 800, for bitterness as well as for alcohol percentage. Therefore it is an ideal reception beer or an alternative for lager beer for those that seek additional value! The composition of the malts is similar and the hopping is done with the same noble hops for the Tumulus Aura as for the Tumulus 800. Also the fermentation of this beer is done with the same unique yeast strain, developed by the KU Leuven/VIB for De Kale Ridders, who selected it for the pleasant and fruity aromas it produces. After the high fermentation the Tumulus Aura is refermented in the bottle.
Taste & Aftertaste: Fruity accents rule in smell and flavour, besides notes of wheat malt. Different fruit flavours can be distinguished, such as mango, banana, grapefruit, lychee, citrus, or something for everybody! In the aftertaste the soft bitterness of 35 EBU is clearly manifested. The Tumulus Aura has a full and delicate foam head.
Serving temperature: Well chilled at ca. 2 - 4 °C.
Serving tip: The Tumulus Aura is best served in a Tumulus glass. According to personal preference the deposit of yeast and wheat can or cannot be poured in the glass. On warm days, the Tumulus Aura becomes really refreshing when served in a glass straight out of the freezer.

Tumulus 800

Début 2009
Vol. Alc.: 6 %
Stamwort: 14 °Plato
Description: Tumulus 800 is a lively blond beer. Like its big brother, Tumulus Magna, it is a full-malt beer brewed with 4 different malts of which wheat and barley malt. Tumulus 800 is hopped with noble hops and is fermented with an innovative yeast strain developed by the University of Leuven/VIB and selected especially for its outstanding aroma profile.

Taste & Aftertaste: The nose is very rich with fruity aromas, while a fresh spicy bitterness dominates the taste. With a bitterness of 50 EBU it is one of the most bitter Belgian beers around, but the noble hops ensure a nice balance. The bitterness prolongs itself nicely in the aftertaste. The foam is very soft and delicate and lasts for quite a while.

Serving tip: As for all wheat beers it is recommended to “waltz” the bottom of the bottle so that all ingredients will be freed and you can fully enjoy the exquisite taste pallet of this beer. Tumulus 800 excels in its own glass, frozen if possible, especially on a hot summer day.

A noble hop is used for the hopping of this black beer leading to a final bitterness of 45 EBU. Tumulus Nera is a top fermented beer with refermentation in the bottle.

Description: Tumulus Magna is a strong wheat beer inspired by the German “Weizen” wheat beers, but with that something extra.

Serving temperature: Well chilled at 4-6 °C.
Serving tip: As for all wheat beers it is recommended to “waltz” the bottom of the bottle so that all ingredients will be freed and you can fully enjoy the exquisite taste pallet of this beer. Tumulus Magna excels in its own glass.
