Magic Tafel is born out of a collaboration with Magic Rock (England). Brasserie de la Senne is very proud of it because it is a very light beer (3,8% abv), and these are by far the most difficult beers to brew, as they logically contain more water and less raw materials. It is nonetheless full of flavours; at first we get an explosion of citrus fruits, with a predominance of pink grapefruit, then hints of orchard flowers and fresh cereals. It is quite bitter but not too much, very dry but with just enough body to give it structure. Its light carbonation underlines its drinkability. THE summer beer par excellence! Will go perfectly with all kind of dishes such as salads, cheese, charcuterie platter, fish or chicken, sausage, spicy preparations, light dessert and vegetarian meals.
Brasserie de la Senne is one of the oldest and still active breweries from Brussels, among Cantillon. Famous for their core range, they also brew collaborations and various experimentations using barrel-age or wild yeast (brett). A bigger brewery will open soon in the north of the city, at the Tour & Taxis location, next to En Stoemelings and No Science breweries. Inspired by local brewing traditions and the vibrant US craft beer scene, Magic Rock Brewing is the culmination of a lifelong passion for beer. Richard Burhouse (aided by head brewer Stuart Ross) started the brewery in 2011 in an old out-building of the family business (an importer of crystals and natural gifts) in Huddersfield, West Yorkshire.
