A bit disappointing. Nothing special about this beer. Yes blond, yes high abv, yes okay. But aftertaste doesn’t reflect abv. Medaille d’argent? Not with this price-quality relation.

Alengrin (4529) - BELGIUM - JUL 17, 2016
One of the new incarnations of this well-known French strong beer brand, bottle from a shop in Bastogne. Creamy, irregular, egg-white head retaining densely on the edges but thinning quickly in the middle, clear deep ’old gold’ colour with medium fizz. Aroma of honey waffles, candied banana, dry bitter herbs, flowers, hint of iron, sugar corn, touch caramel, orange liqueur, white pepper, young ’jenever’. Sweet onset, residual white candi sugar, but low in fruitiness so I suspect this is bottom-fermented; minerally accents, sharpish carbonation with slightly ’souring’ effect. Honeyish and lightly caramelly malt middle, slick and ’full’, spicy accents announcing a finish of ongoing malt sweetness dried by some leafy hop bitterness but more so by strong, gin-like alcohol, burning a bit on the back of the tongue and becoming unpleasantly astringent way at the back (fortunately not sooner). Too sweet, too straightforward and definitely way too alcoholic for me, basically alcoholics’ swill from a fancy (albeit rather naive) bottle instead of the cheap tin cans I usually encounter this usually cheerless beer style in, but I admit I had worse ’Euro strong lagers’ than this so I reckon it is above average for its specific style and intended audience.

Bov (11974) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - JUL 1, 2016
courtesy of Mich - clear bronze beer yet with particles floating within; little long lasting foam; aroma of candy sugar, pears and candied apples; very sweet, full-bodied, sticky sugary and fruity finish - no matter the different alcohol contents, this beer remains awful

Flaska frĺn Saveur Bieré. Smak och doft av humle, malt, honung, persika, aprikos med toner av örter och gräs. Stor sötma (artificiell sĺdan), rund och len, fin beska.

Color ocre limpio, espuma blanca abundante al principio y menos después, aunque duradera por las continuas burbujas ascendentes. Aroma a malta y levadura. Sabor a levadura y dulce. Se nota el alcohol y calienta la garganta.
