COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Basilius is een donker koperkleurig bier van 7% alc. VOL. Dit dorstlessend bier haalt zijn zachte karamelaroma’s uitsluitend uit de gebruikte gerstmouten. De hopsoorten zorgen daarentegen voor een subtiel fruitig (sinaasappel) en kruidig aroma en een verfijnde bitterheid. •Stamwortgehalte: 16° PLATO •35 EBU •57 EBC •5 soorten gerstemout •2 hopsoorten: ◦Amarillo ◦Saaz

BlackHaddock (3479) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - OCT 30, 2012
18th Oct 2012 on-tap in Daisey’s ’t Brugs Beertje: good deep amber/brown body, tan coloured head that stayed a while. Burnt sugar and honey in both the nose and taste: so a bit sweet then! Belgian style yeast esters and flavours calmed it down a bit but other sweet notes also came and went during my tasting: namely candid fruits, brown sugar and caramel. The alcohol was well hidden by the sweet brew; it did have a mild hop bitterness under the surface and towards the end of each sip it was easy to find. A nice easy drinking beer for 7.0% ABV.

77ships (3540) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - JUL 25, 2012
33 cl. bottle @ ’t Brugs Beertje // 7 % Belgian Ale commissioned by Brugs Bierinstituut at the Proef // haven’t seen this anywhere else except @ ‘t Brugs Beertje & @ Brugs Beer Festival // assume that this is a very local beer // label is just the name in fancy Germanic letter type // reddish amber with an uneven off-white head // smells of sweet caramel, candy sugar, caramelized apple, caramel malts // taste is Belgian yeast, sweet caramel apples, candy fruits, caramelized brown sugar, dash coffee, bitter floral finish // bit too much carb. for me // much better than I expected this is quite good // definitely better & more memorable than the White Zwaan that they also commissioned, if you ever come across this, you might consider picking it up
