Violette is a blond beer brewed with pale malt and candy by Beer & You (Brussels). Beer & You was launched recently by Gauthier Hannecard, following a family tradition in gastronomy. He is brewing in Neder-over-Hembeek, next to the king’s house and not far from our shop in the north of Brussels. The brewer likes to use original ingredients and make experiments with honey, bread or flowers.
Violette is the perfect balance between a bitter but light blond beer and sweet violette candy. Do not be afraid: the candy just gives a hint of sweetness and flower taste but this beer remains a very-well made beer for everyone. This beer will go perfectly with goat cheese, pastries and light salads.
