Limited to 2550 bottles.

A blend of old lambik and a rustic saison from Brasserie de Silly, which has undergone an extra year of bottle conditioning and ageing.

The beer is made in support of the Heetveldemolen in Tollembeek. This watermill, continuously active since 1440, is located on the Marke river, of which the spring water is used by Silly for brewing. Hubert and Monique and their non-profit organisation mill old cereals into flour for (sourdough) bakers. They also work with cereals grown by local farmers from our cereal collective.

The name for the beer comes from the road past the mill, the Munkbaan. People used to speak of “De Molen van Munck”, since Carolus de Munck from Lennik was the owner of the mill as from 1855. He was also the ancestor of the current owner Monique.

75cl bottle shared with El Birrot crew for the X-mas tasting in Jafre. Big thanks to Costa for sharing his bottle.
Bottle # 34/2550. Bottled 03/2020.
Léger gusher, dorée virant sur léger paille/orange, col fin blanc vivace.
Arôme est assez funk, ressent bien le côté 3F - ici l'apport de Silly est plutôt discret à apporter - qcq notes fruitées en rétro-nasal.
Palais est plaisant avec de suite une sécheresse marquée , funk, léger sur la barrique avec un assemblage de la saison de Silly qui reste plutôt discret et qui avec les années risque de diminuer encore plus.
Le lambic reste bien dominant avec un côté grains qui perce un peu plus en retrait.
