AtronSeige (1287) - Johannesburg, SOUTH AFRICA - AUG 29, 2014
Aroma: Fruity, banana. Light alcohol, spicy. Medium-high sweetness. Appearance: Clear light-amber body. Head: Medium, white, good retention. Lacing. Flavour: Medium-high fruitiness. Medium-light alcoholic, pepper. light bready. Dry finish. Mouthfeel: light warming. medium-full body. medium-high carbonation. Overall: Nice. The lighter alcohol makes for an "easy" drinking beer, but still not a lawnmower beer by any means. 330 ml bottle, poured. Thanks Andre!

Alengrin (4604) - BELGIUM - JUL 15, 2014
Abbey beer brewed for the German low-budget supermarket chain Aldi, originally by Riva, now by Haacht. Creamy white, medium thick head, golden blond colour; aroma straightforward, malty sweetish, honey, apple, pineapple, apricot, hint of vanilla, floral hops; taste equally straightforward (not to say simple), dominated by a sweetish, bit honeyish maltiness and rather weak, insufficient hop bitterishness in the finish.

On dit qu’un brasseur ne peut gérer correctement qu’une bière d’abbaye. Certains sont confrontés à 2 bières. Et Haacht se permet d’affronter Tongerloo, Malonne et cette abbaye du Park à Heverlee, fondée par des prémontrés en 1129. Blonde de 6% abv, qui est en fait de couleur ambre moyen !!! Clarté nette. Bulles absentes, mais la bière a dépassé sa date de 3 mois, donc on lui fera crédit de cela... Mousse blanche qui tient un peu à 1cm, puis vient napper le breuvage. Arômes de malt à whisky, épices fortes, airelles, pointe de poivre et piment doux. 1ère bouche bien structurée mais très plate sur un malt de 1er niveau. Arrière-bouche de pomme de terre rouge bouillie avec une pointe de muscade. 2ème bouche qui monte une peu vers le malté complet, avec une nuance de pain gris. 3ème assez équilibrée, mais sans grande ampleur. Arrière-bouche assez agréable avec du malt et quelques épices. Longueur qui avance sans risque mais sans gloire. Une bière « à bon papa ». Levure nulle. Aucune trace de refermentation. Alcool correct malgré son faible niveau, mais qui a bien peu à soutenir... Finale vraiment quelconque. Conclusion : une bière qui ne mérite aucune honte mais qui ne peut recueillir aucune grosse cote... Elle va son petit bonhomme de chemin... tranquille.

Low on the expectations vs Belgian abbey beers standard...it’s a bit too heavy on the CO2, a bit too watery, a tiny bit too hoppy, relative to the velvety balance of a Leffe (let alone other micros), but given that I’ve transported it from Aldi Bruxelles to Estonia, it stands out in so many wonderful Belgian estery ways.

Green banana aroma. More of an amber colour. Some bitterness, some grains, some metallic flavour.

Vacation 2013 @ Virton, Belgium. 33 cl. bottle @ the bungalow, bought @ the local Delhaize supermarket.

Deep golden with a big white head. Nice blonde bitterness and taste. Good full mouthfeel.

Just to sort out some beers I have had, but didn’t rate. 33CL bottle at home, Blond beer, nothing special but drinkable.

Classic belgian to start a day there. Huge carbo, some yeast in the nose. There are better belgian out there but this one is still way above average.

McTapps (6502) - Reutlingen, GERMANY - MAY 2, 2013
Clear deep amber colour with creamy steady head and medium smooth body. Nose of light yeast. Taste of Belgian yeast, malt, grass, copper, berries and mild apples. Very easy to drink and very quaffable. Really nice one.
