apparte l’esperienza nel birrificio devo dire che questa birra mi è piaciuta,ma mi aspettavo di più! l’aroma è poco percepibile e anche il gusto non è speciale come mi aspettavo..sicuramente una birra da ribere ma che per il momento non si fa ricordare!

Ambar. Dos dedos de espuma muy efervescente, que no dura demasiado. Aroma dulce, en el que claramente se percibe la miel que lleva. En boca muy equilibrada, manteniendo el tono dulce pero evolucionando con un amargor claro, muy marcado y cada vez más seco, dejando además un calorcito final muestra del alto contenido alcohólico, bien disimulado hasta ese momento por la rica textura suave al paladar. Gas también marcado. En conjunto es una buena cerveza.

Bottle sample from old notes. Pours a hazy orange golden color with a large off white head. The aroma and flavor had sweet malts, fruits, some citrus, doughy bread, yeast, a slight metallic note to the finish. OK.

Found back quite some tasting notes, among them, this one. APPEARANCE: light clouded blond beer, small stable white head. NOSE: quite sweet, some caramel, bit hoppy. TASTE: very sweet, candy sugar? Bit hoppy

7th Feb 2015: Brugge Beer Festival. Golden blond, my pour was slightly hazy. The nose had a honey twang to it, some spicy notes and yeastiness. The taste seemed sweeter with caramel malty flavours coming through. Mild but prolonged bitterness towards the finish. Another honey beer that has failed to excite my taste buds too greatly.

Hazy peach in colour with a big creamy head. Aroma is a big bouquet of flowers. Taste is crisp, flowery, citrus, and a tinge of honey.

EddyBeer1 (1058) - Brussels, BELGIUM - DEC 22, 2014
Blonde dorée trouble, effervescence moyenne à bulles fines, col blanc moyen. Arôme de miel et de houblon, les malts sont rapidement dépassés par une amertume herbacée, notes de miel, légèrement fleurie. Une bière au miel loin des autres du genre.

Alengrin (3548) - BELGIUM - DEC 4, 2014
Boelens’ best known beer, classic Belgian honey beer since 1994; deep peach blonde, hazy, with honey being present in the aroma along with spicy yeastiness, caramelly malts, herbal hops; less sweet than expected, though very estery, had a sourish accent many times I tasted it probably due to lactic bacterial infection; yeasty, sweet honey touch, otherwise spicy and malty with grassy hop bitterness in the finish. Decent, if you can find a non-infected sample, at least.

Bottle from de Bierschuur in Poppel. The beer has a golden / blonde color and a nice large white head, with a lot of bubbles. The aroma has clear tones of hops, spices, flowers, citrus and a little sweetness from honey. The taste starts little sweet, honey like, to change in a nice light bitterness with tones of hops and spices. The finish is soft and a light bitter, and is long noticable. A nice strong ale, which could have been a tripel. Nicely done.
