COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A naturally cloudy wheat beer with a subtle sweetness of ripe apples. The serving ritual - half-fill glass, then swirl bottle and top-up glass - this gives the beer its full palette of flavours and unique cloudiness.

Really excited at first - Belgium beer with apple and only 3.1%. Come to find it is just really carbonated sugar water with touch of alcohol. HArd to call beer. Different and unique nonetheless.

bright yellow slightly cloudy pour slight white head. Aroma slight bretta, peaches, cinnamon. Tastes super juicy apples cinnamon, dusty funk. sweet enough to not be for everyone, but it will be delightful for those who don’t mind.

Ik drink zeer graag appelbieren, zoals Newton en floris enzo, maar dit was een tegenvaller van formaat, slechtste appelbier ooit gedronken

Alengrin (2431) - BELGIUM - JUL 24, 2014
Apple beer based on Blanche de Namur with a mousse-like, off-white head and a cloudy, straw-yellowish colour. Aroma dominated by cinnamon and sugary apple juice or some mass-marketed apple cider, but the wheat and even the coriander from the base witbier also shine through. Soft mouthfeel, very sweet apple juice taste, some soft acidity from the wheat, thin mouthfeel; thirst-quenching and to my personal taste less off-putting than their Redbocq or Agrumbocq, but still very far from my favorite style.

Bottle. Green apple nose, wheat, some light lemon. Cloudy apple juice color, thick head of light foam. Light tart apple initial, bit of citrus, a touch of astringent fruitiness in final. Thin body. Less of a beer than a malt fruit juice. Still, it could be refreshing on a hot day.

25cl bottle Appearance: Hazy pale straw color with a finger of tall fizzy white head. (more soda then beer like) Aroma: Apples with some citrus and a bit spices in the background. Taste Industrial cider like Apple soda taste with a bit of lemon The little extra wheat suggest it might be something different. Sour Sweet taste, more refined as these industrial ciders. However real ciders can be even better. medium carboation, Light Bodied,

Fresh and fruity beer, luckily it’s a bit sour. Tastes more like cider than beer though.

Green apple skin aroma. Sweet apple soda, lemon, sour sweet finish. Would rather drink a proper cider than this hybrid brew...

Bottle shared with Dutch beer pages. Beer tastes like flat soda, sweet with a little head. Very disappointing.
