Details

Ask anyone from Antwerp to describe the city in a few words and you can guarantee the answer: 'the Schelde, the Zoo, the Cathedral of Our Lady, and a Bolleke of De Koninck'. Few Antwerp companies have such an intimate connection with the city, or so rich a tradition, as the Brouwerij De Koninck.

De Koninck is an amber-coloured Belgian ale that is low in alcohol content with a good malty flavour and--thanks to a good dose of Saaz hops--a slightly bitter finish. Velvety smooth with a nice creamy head, this is a pleasantly drinkable and refreshing beer.

Established in 1833, it's now impossible to separate the city of Antwerp from the De Koninck brewery. Today Brewery de Koninck has been incorporated into the Duvel Moortgat brewery group. Trivia: The glass in which De Koninck's flagship beer is served is called a bolleke!

Lacked character for me, drinkable but nothing special, a bit dull.

Nice tasting Belgian APA. Alc 5.2%. Strong tasting but rather forgettable after moving on to something else
Great beer

A cracking belgian pale, it has good malt flavour, hop character and yeasty esters without any of them overpowering the beer. Extremely drinkable and a really well made beer
