Quintine Ambrée is traditionally brewed and fermented, and combines the bitterness of hops – like all beers in the Quintine range, it is deliciously bitter– with flavours of pepper and caramelised malt. Its amber colour comes from the use of malt and the caramel that forms during the long malt-roasting process.
Quintine was a witch from Ellezelles in the Pays des Collines region. She was burned at the stake in 1610 with four other witches. This story, along with that of the Witches’ Sabbath, is part of the folklore of the small, pretty town of Ellezelles in Belgium.
