Canaster

Style: Winter Scotch
Brouwerij de Glazen Toren, Erpe-Mere, Belgium

Canaster, a subtle Winter Scotch, is the third beer from the brewery. This beer is only available from November till February. Yet it was a definite choice to avoid any clear reference to Christmas or New Year in the name.

The name Canaster clearly refers to an ancient brewing tradition of Aalst. Centuries ago Canaster was brewed in the Carmelite convent in Aalst. The archeological site was recently uncovered and is the subject of an historical investigation. Canaster now relives as a Winter Scotch, a beer for the long, cold winter evenings. Here the same natural ingredients are used as in the two other products of the brewery, including the Hallertau hop from the Aalst area.

This beer with a 9.5 % alc. vol. owes its warm aroma and its full-bodied taste to the use of fine, dark malts (caramel).

The same 25.4 oz. bottles are used but the wrapper is white, red and green. The brewery offers a special winter glass for this beer. The logo of the brewery has here been transformed into a winter scene.
