A mildly yeasty and delightfully fresh wheat ale that has on it's label a cute little snail on a lilypad, looking curiously down into the pond. It is best enjoyed chilled on a hot summers day. It tastes magnificent: Like a Hoegaarden but with more zest and more fruit than your mass produced beer, it doesn't get much better than this.

The recurring theme on each label is that of spiral snail shell from which the brewery takes its name. Apparently the snail is the emblem of Namur and the word for a snail in local Namurois dialect is "Caracole".

The Brasserie Caracole is known to warm the water with a wooden-fired oven. The bottling and labelling are made manually.

The brewery was already existing in 1766 under the name Brasserie Moussoux, then changed its name Brasserie Lamotte in 1941 and was finally taken over in 1992 to become the Brasserie Caracole.The Caracole brewery
