Bread, cereal, hay, golden, medium bitterness, light body, it’s okay... I probably won’t remember I’ve already had it next I drink it.

13/02/2011 - 75cl bottle @ De Bistronoom (2011-52)
Note: this beer is served in De Bistronoom as their housebeer, called "Den Aangespoelden", according to the owners it was already sold at their place before "Belle Cies" was put on the market.
Cloudy yellow to light orange beer. White creamy head. Aroma: very hoppy, spicy, some malts, faint yeast aroma, some of the alcohol on warming up. MF: ok fine carbon, medium body. Taste: full malts, fruity touch (peaches), hops, hint of candi sugar. Aftertaste: some candi sugar, but not cloying, taste and not too dry hops.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 13/20
(Bottled, 0.75l) Opaque yellow with a small, partly lasting head. Aroma of citrus and pale malt. Flavor is pale-malty, lightly citrusy, with well-hidden alcohol. Medium body, quite thin for the ABV, actually. Again, well made and easy to drink, but not memorable. 5335

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
From bottle at ZBF 2010. Hazy golden colour, medium white head. Fruity, pale malty, bit alcoholic nose with citrusy hoppiness. Good sweet malty with light almond feel. Medium bodied, with a tad bitterness in the end. Not as sweet in the finish as one would expect at 10%.

Bottle @ ZBF 2010. A hazy yellow colored beer, with a thick white head. There is a fresh hopbel in the beer. The aroma of hop bitters, fruity and some malts. The taste is sparkling with hop bitter and fruits. The aftertaste is bitter with fruits.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
@ ZBF 2010. Pours a light hazy yellow with a decent white head and no lacing. Candi sugar and orange juice in the nose. Taste is malty, oatmeal, and a bit boozy from the 10%. Spritzy/bubbly palate.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
From a bottle at ZBF 2010. Hazy golden, medium white head. Spicy, slightly alcoholic aroma with some citric hops. Medium bodied and smooth. Very well balanced with a lingering mild bitterness. Very nice despite a bit too much alcohol.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
The invisible, hidden hopcone popping out of the bottleneck after some secs of pouring wasn’t exactly inspiring confidence - I was thinking of more unpalatable things, and threw away the first glass... Still a towering, snowwhite fine head over fully hazy, pineapplejuice-coloured beer. EU-hops, bit hayish nose. The head is so dense and tenacious, that it blocks most aromas. Fresh, but dry-hoppy taste, faint fruity esters, green fruit, mild hopoils. Surprisingly light body for its ABV, but refreshing and superbly attenuated. Head has a remarkable texture, as the whipped head on cappucino, or so. Nice, refreshingly hoppy beer, and, above all, lethally drinkable for its claimed ABV.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
From 75 cl bottle, bought at Kempisch Bierfestival in Geel. Hop cone inside the bottle (the ultimate "wet hopping", I guess). Cloudy golden with a stable offwhite head. Intense hoppy aroma with notes of citrus and grass. Sweet fruity flavours balanced by intense hoppy bitterness. Complex fruitiness from the yeast and hops. Full-bodied. Way to go! With this beer the small Den Tseut brewery shows the world its great potential.
