Style Abbey Tripel
Brewed by Brouwerij Van Honsebrouck

8.5% ABV

Filou is a rascal that you take lightly at your peril. Introduced in 2014, this young member of the Van Honsebrouck family packs a grown up punch. Filou will surprise you with its naughty character, but is calling it a rascal or a scamp a little disrespectful? In fact, the name is a nod and a wink to both the drinker and the beer: Filou goes down so easily that you’ll be asking for a refill before long. What about the drinker? Is he or she a rascal who can’t resist Filou’s temptations? Not many people will leave it at just the one glass, which poses the question: who is the biggest filou of the two? Filou is brewed with Belgian and Czech aromatic hops, pilsner malt and is refermented in the bottle. Another one for the road…?
