3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Commissioned by CVO Elishout COOVI (described as a ’didactic restaurant’, in Brussels) but now brewed at the ’Proef’brouwerij and no longer at Achilles (so I assume there should be slight differences with the original version). Bottle from Bezoekerscentrum De Lambiek in Alsemberg. Medium thick, egg-white, moussy head with decent retention, over a warm ’old gold’ coloured beer, clear with lively sparkling, misty with deposit. Sweet aroma of raw pineapple, powder sugar, dry coriander seed, honey, banana, red apple, orange, cantaloupe, canned apricots, wet grass, iron, a vague hint of plastic and some bubblegum. Fruity onset, apple peel, white grape, peach, hint of banana, sweetish with a basic sourish edge and some citrus refreshment, medium carbonation, soft and supple mouthfeel with somewhat thinnish, lightly oily body, pale and lightly caramelly malt sweetness with honeyish touch all the way through the finish, where a light, grassy, bit peppery hop bitterishness brings balance and a trace of bittersweet, resiny coriander - I would have been more surprised had this ingredient, for once, not been used - clings a bit to the throat, but mildly so. Correct, decent and balanced, there is absolutely nothing wrong with this, but it is, of course, just another simple Belgian blonde, which does not differentiate itself from litterally hundreds of others in the same style. Suits its purpose, but nothing to go hunting for.

24/VIII/13 - 33cl bottle @ Bierweekend Lambiekstoempers (Alsemberg) - BB: n/a (2013-797) Thanks to T. for sharing today’s beers!
Clear blond beer, aery off-white head, unstable, non adhesive. aroma: bit spicy, burnt toast, some citrus, cloves and other spices. MF: ok carbon, medium to light body. Taste: very spicy, lots of cloves, weird bitterness, bit soapy, bitter. Aftertaste: some orange peel, bitter, spicy, soapy, little peppery. I’m almost a 100% sure there’s cloves in this. And too much, for that matter. May I suggest using less?

Dorée, blanche- opaque.
Arôme est houblonné et fleuri avec note sucrée allant sur le sureau.
En bouche, une bière légère présentant un profile levure belge, fine note de malt pale et un peu de caramel ainsi que une touche sucrée. Le tout se mélange bien à un houblon qui reste fleuri et finement amer avec un fini citronné présentant une note d’épice.
