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.

3.9 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.

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.

3.7 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 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle, 75cl corked. Served at the brewery. A hazy, dark golden-orange beer with a finger thick, dense, off-white head. Pale malts, lots of fruityness, some peppery notes and a pleasant grassy and piney hoppyness on the nose. The flavor has some notes of orange peel and a decent bitterness, leading to a lasting finish. Full-bodied, smooth and dry. The 10% ABV is well hidden, and it’s dangerously tasteful and easy drinkable. I really enjoyed this one, but I also realise the fact that I might be a bit influenced by the setting, with good weather, good friends and a nice garden. 110430

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle, 10%. Mild malty aroma. Cloudy yellow colour, almost muddy. Small stable white head. Good malty flavour, semi-sweet with a little soft fruit. Perhaps a bit sugary, but balanced well by the alcohol. Does not taste like 10%, though.
