Poured 12/2009 The body is a lightly hazy copper in color and upon even a gentle pour grows an enormous, billowing white head that leaves a thick sheet of lace on the glass. Yeasty fruitiness in the nose, with apples, muscat grapes and ripe pear interspersed with a peppery spice. The first taste reveals three competing major flavors: bitter, boozy and fruity. These major themes blend for various combinations throughout the glass of beer. Bright fruit (apples, pears, etc), herbal and citrusy hops, sweet rich malt and some understated alcohol flavors with a bit of warming in the mouth. Medium bodied with a finish that’s more bitter than sweet. Is this the hoppiest beer in Belgium (as they claim)? No way. I like Belgian IPAs and Urthel Hop It and Houblon Chouffe are hoppier in the same style and, off the top of my head, Westvleteren 6 is a hoppier golden ale. But Gaspar is still a pretty tasty beer.

Draft at SIB07. Probably WAS one of the hoppier biers in Belgium - but that was back in 2007. Not anymore.

2003 bottle. Pours a murky copper, minimal head or lace, but impressive it’s still carbonated. Definitely not an IPA at this point anymore, lots of caramel and dark fruit, sweet and big, would like to try this fresh.

Alengrin (1824) - BELGIUM - AUG 15, 2014
The first of Alvinne’s Epiphany beers, a winter ale in the new IPA-inspired ’tripel hop’ style. Deep peach blonde colour with amber glow, misty. Aroma very hoppy, peppery, leafy, oily, grapefruit, apple, bitter honey; restrained fruity onset, soft malts, quickly dominated by a very powerful, drying, oily, spicy, long hop bitterness. I wonder why this isn’t classified as a true IPA here.

Troebel oranje met bezinksel. Ruikt niet erg sterk, mout, wat citrusfruit, smaakt bitterzoet, maar meer zoet dan bitter, vrij fruitig, sinaasappel. Goede nasmaak. Goed te drinken.

Bottle. Unclear golden body, lasting offwhite head. Fruity aroma with malty undertones, yeast and grass, taste is lightly spiced, apples, dark sugar, banana, nice sweet palate with a good hop presence kicking in at the finish, together with a slightly tart aftertaste. A very nice brew.

Fles gedeeld met lachneger. oranje amberkleurig licht troebel bier. Bijna geen schuim. Aroma heeft iets weg van een geuze, dit is fruitiger. Smaak is zuur met licht bittere afdronk. Mondgevoel is trekkend.
