Highlight of the "24-Hour-of-Antwerp" Beer Show in November of 2002

A dark bottle-conditioned ale. Brewed with malt, hops, candi sugar, Valerian and Lemon Balm, yeast and water.

Lemon balm is a lemon extract and gives a citrusy note to the beer. As the Bbbourgondier is very malty with a high sugar content, valerian is used as an experimental bittering agent in conjunction with hops to further balance the beer. Valerian is a popular herb used as a sedative to promote sleep and as a calmative agent. Valerian appears to affect the activity of the neurotransmitter GABA in the central nervous system, the target of most tranquilizers available by prescription. It has commonly been prescribed as a cure-all in European countries for centuries.
