On June 28 2010, Hildegard gained with her latest creation, Urthel Saisonniere, the prestigious World Beer Award 2010 for Europe's Best Seasonal Pale Ale. This is something to be proud of. And, of course, we are.
Urthel Saisonniere, brewed since November 2009, is a top-fermented blond Special Ale with refermentation from bottle (bottle conditioned). Urthel Saisonniere is unfiltered so the best of the malts and hops stays here it belongs. In the beer. It has a wide pallet of the finest rich aromas and a full subtle bitter taste. That makes Urthel Saisonniere a thirst-quencher of 6.0% ABV with a "bite".
Nicely poured in its original extraordinary glass Urthel Saisonniere becomes a beautiful foam head. This is due to the 20% of wheat which is used.
To fully enjoy Urthel Saisonniere, you have to pour first half the bottle, then give it a twist (3x) to release the yeast and the wheat from the bottom and then pour the rest of the bottle into the glass.
Urthel Saisonniere is a refreshing thirst-quencher of 6.0% with a 'bite'.
