your online source for all things Simone

This week, Epica launched a collaboration with Kazematten, an Ypres-based brewery from Belgium. If you didn’t know, Isaac is from Ypres. The can features a promotional picture of Simone taken by Stefan Heilemann for the release of Ωmega.

Epica is a bright, sparkling craft lager, pouring out a lovely golden yellow colour with a nice white head. Like the symphonic metal band after which it was named, Epica is a great combination of very different flavours. The unmistakable biscuit malt backbone, supported by an irresistible touch of honey, alternates with lovely citrus notes and a spiciness that packs a punch. With just the right amount of hoppy bitterness, Epica has a well-balanced, refreshing taste that is immensely thirst-quenching at the same time ! Thanks to its amazing flavours of lime, peppermint, tropical fruit and its crisp, spicy undertones, Epica pairs nicely with great comfort food ! Try a glass of Epica with a burger, hot wings or a pizza !” – Kazematten Brewery

Last week, Epica headlined Maximum Rock Festival in Bucharest. Simone looked so stunning in her new white dress ! I love this new look, it reminds me of one of the dresses she wore for Ωmega Alive. The setlist was exactly the same the band played at Road to Luppolo two weeks ago. Now, it’s time for the band to rest before the beginning of the Ωmega world tour starting in South America next December.
