- During the Middle Ages, this castle was an abbey from the Abbots of St. Truiden.
- After no one was interested in becoming a monk, the abbey became abandoned and was bought by several individuals who let the building fall into despair.
- Jeroen and Mieke Desplenter bought it in the early 2000 and converted it into a castle brewery with beautiful terraces where you can enjoy their beers.
Ter Dolen Kriek – Only Abbey Kriek in the World
This unfiltered top-fermented beer is blended with real natural, fresh cherry juice and is made from one type of wheat and malt together with 2 kinds of hops and with the addition of coriander and orange peel. This Kriek beer is 4.5% alc/vol.
Armand Ter Dolen
This Ale is very aromatic due to its dry-hopping usage of the American hop “Cascade” where the nose is fruity with grapefruit and citrus and the taste is dominated by well-balanced hop notes. This unfiltered Ale is 7% alc/vol and therefore slightly hazy.
