Alengrin (4604) - BELGIUM - JUL 25, 2014
Recent beer from Boelens brewery in the Waasland region in the northeast of Flanders, with off-white, thick, mushy foam, caught in the glass after spectacular gushing; colour a misty peach blonde with vivid sparkling. Very nutty aroma with dried fruits, grapefruit, gooseberry, bourbon, jute, sour cream, green apples, leather, sweat... Taste kicks off with a sharp citrussy acidity as well as a lactic acidity probably from the infection which caused the gushing; further apply, nutty malts, but the sourness accompanies the whole palate resulting in a somewhat astringent mouthfeel, some flowery hops in the aroma but no real bitterness. Flawed and lightly infected - as I’ve experienced with most Boelens brews - and out of balance, did not enjoy this.

Riproposta al villaggio, non mi è dispiaciuta, anzi va giù che è una meraviglia, bene come aperitivo...

ajax25g (76) - Washington DC, Washington, USA - APR 15, 2012
33cl bottle thanks to tderoeck. Bit of a gusher, pours bronze with head that disappears in 10secs. Smells of candy sugar and dark fruits. Med body with creamy mouthfeel. Tastes bready, with brown sugar and a bit of fruitiness from the yeast I believe. Not bad

33cl bottle. Thanks Tderoeck for the share. Gusher. Orangée, plein de bon sédiments de levure, col blanc. Arôme est bien houblonné avec un beau bouquet fruité rappelant le frisco à l’orange. En bouche, malté, levure belge typique, fruité et houblonné sont là les seuls vraies qualités de cette bière. Le tout est crémeux en bouche, fruité, limite tropical et un fini léger caramel.

14/IV/2012 - 33cl bottle from Être Gourmet website @ home - BBE: 2010 (2012-371)

Note: GUSHER warning!

Cloudy red brown beer, big aery off-white head, unstable. Aroma: oranges, very fruity, sugary, bit musty. MF: low to no carbon, medium body, very creamy soft texture. Taste: bit sweet, orange, ice cream, vanilla, some spices, cloves, coriander, more vanilla. Aftertaste: sweet dough, cinnamon. Not bad at all! And yeah, I know, it’s probably because of the age, but hey, who cares, right?

(.33L bottle thanks to bu11zeye) clearish orange with a film and ring of white bubbles. Nose of sweet grain, honey, caramel. Taste of light alcohol, gold raisins, a tad bit vinous, pears, clove, and a syrupy body. Weird umami finish.
