Brewery director Gilles Nackaerts and journalist France Clarinval enjoy a glass of Diekirch Unfiltered on the terrace at Scott’s Pub
Diekirch has launched its Unfiltered beer packed with unique hops just in time for summer.
Seeking to attract beer lovers looking for a drink with a bit more character than its classic lager, Diekirch has turned to an unfiltered, late hopping, brew.
As master brewer at Diekirch Pierre Van Vynckt explains, the method allows the yeast to enhance the palette of flavours, especially of the Mistral and Ella hops that are added during the latter part of the boil. The result is a beer that is soft and pleasantly refreshing with slightly floral notes.
The brewery has also unveiled a special glass that it says is optimal for drinking Diekirch Unfiltered. A tapered base and narrowing mouth capture the complex aromas of the new beer, says Gilles Nackaerts, director of the Diekirch brewery.
The beer was officially launched at Scott’s Pub in the Grund on Wednesday afternoon and is now generally available in bottles in cafés, restaurants and supermarkets.
