Description

Op-Ale is a spicy, amber-colored beer with its own slightly bitter taste, which is inscribed in the tradition of the “Spéciale Belge” beers.

This category of beers emerged at the beginning of the 20th century after a “Competition for the Improvement of Belgian Beer” was launched to counterbalance new imported beers on the market. The competition inspired numerous brewers to create amber-colored beers based on mineral-rich brewing water, light-colored caramel malts, and soft aroma hops. These beers are generally referred to by the name Spéciale Belge.
