This high fermentation beer was brewed as a tribute to the world-famous Dr Yperman, a fourteenth-century surgeon from Ypres. Since then, the famous medical centre of Ypres has also been named after him. This light-red amber pale ale has a thin creamy head.
Yperman owes its slightly fruity aroma to the herbs used. The mildly sweet attack is offset by the maltiness and hints of caramel that come to the fore, followed by hints of mild hops and spicy malt. The finish retains its soft bitterness, but ends on a mild herbal note.
