In 620, Prince Salvaert of Dijon crossed the Sans-Merci forest to return to England with his pregnant wife, Ermengaert. He was attacked by Count Phinaert. The whole caravan was killed except for Ermengaert, who gave birth to her son with fear. The new-born was collected by a local hermit who would give him his name, Liedericq (Lydéric). As an adult, after having avenged the death of his father, he founded the city of Lille and became the first Count of Flanders. "Kluiz" comes from "kluizenaar", the Flemish word for "hermit". This place is now known as Mont de l'Enclus (Kluisbergen in Belgium).
THERE IS ALWAYS A GOOD REASON TO VISIT MONT-DE-L’ENCLUS
THE KLUIZ BREWERY IS IN ANSEROEUL, A SMALL VERDANT VILLAGE AT THE FOOT OF MONT-DE-L’ENCLUS IN BELGIUM. IT DERIVES ITS NAME FROM "KLUIZENAAR", THE DUTCH WORD FOR “HERMIT”.
ACCORDING TO LEGEND, LIEDERICQ, THE FIRST COUNT OF FLANDERS AND THE FOUNDER OF THE CITY OF LILLE AND OF BRUGES, WAS BORN THERE. MANY PLACE NAMES STILL CONTAIN REFERENCES TO THIS LEGEND.
THE SUMMIT OF THE MOUNTAIN IS 141 METRES ABOVE SEA LEVEL. IT IS SURROUNDED BY ABUNDANT FLORA AND FAUNA. MANY TOURISTS COME AND EXPLORE IN FAMILY GROUPS HERE.
SEVERAL WALKS THROUGH WALLONIA AND THROUGH FLANDERS ARE OFFERED.
THE NUMEROUS SOURCES OF THE MOUNTAIN SUPPLY A HIGH-QUALITY GROUNDWATER TABLE RICH IN MINERALS AND LIMESTONE, INGRÉDIENTS THAT ARE ESSENTIAL TO THE PRODUCTION OF KLUIZ.
Liedericq Kluiz is a light, complex blond beer.
At first sight, you will be seduced by its golden blond robe and its delicate white head.
It has touches of a floral scent and the sober notes of hops.
In the mouth, it has a body similar to that of its cereal inputs. It has a floral bitterness, followed by a light peppery touch.
Kluiz Triple is a beer with character that becomes apparent as one tastes it.
You will be won over by the purity and luminosity of its golden colour.
You will be surprised by its crisp, fresh aspect. It has the fruity aroma of hops and yeast exhaling notes of citrus and grass, as well as a twist of orange.
The end is marked by the expression of triumphant hops that lingers in the mouth, testimony to a belated addition.
Refreshing and summery, this lightly-sweetened fruit beer is an astute blend of a high fermentation blond beer and natural juices from fruits that grow in the woods typical of the Mont de l'Enclus region (a dominance of blackberries, raspberries, elderberries and gooseberries).
It has an accomplished and bitter aftertaste, typical of malt and hops.
Ruby in colour and with a tangy taste that comes from the red fruit used in its production, this beer will surprise and delight lovers of fruit beer.
COME AND VISIT THE BREWERY FROM 9H TO 12H, MONDAY TO FRIDAY
