Prima Melior was the Special Reserve Ale exclusively for the use of the Abbot and his guests.
A brown beer of high strength, it is reinforced with a powerful seasoning of anis and coriander. When the fermentation and clarification are complete, doses of yeast and brewing sugar are added for refermentation in the bottle.
This is based upon the brewing tradition of Floreffe abbey. Prima Melior is ideal with a mature hard cheese, possibly selected in the range of cheeses of Floreffe, or perfect when used in the preparation of rabbit.
