The story of Brewery Roman starts in 1545 with a man named Joos Roman. He owned an inn named “De Clocke” in Mater, a submunicipality of Oudenaarde. This bed and breakfast avant la lettre was located along the Franco-German trade route. Roman owned an inn, a farm, a mill, a malthouse and a brewery of course. At the time, beer brewing was just one of the many activities that took place here. Over time, as the next generations took the helm, beer became the family’s main activity.
A Belgian strong pale ale from the Roman brewery, which has have continuously owned and operated by the Roman family since 1545. A traditional blonde, light and malty, with honey and yeast flavors and subtle spice and herb notes. Rince Cochon is refermented in the bottle, resulting in a sediment at the bottom. Pour delicately to obtain a nice head. The dominant caramel flavor is well balanced with the bitterness of roasted malts and hops.
