Brewed in memory of a wolf that is supposed to roam in the north of Flanders, killing sheep. "Not for little lambs".

Alengrin (2355) - BELGIUM - NOV 4, 2014
A ’tarwetripel’ developped when the Waasland region in Flanders, where Boelens is situated, was startled by sightings of an out-of-place, roving wolf (and I am convinced I saw him too in that period, but anyway)... Apparently still made to this day. Off-white, loose head, deep brownish orange colour, cloudy. Estery nose, spices, caramelly maltiness, wheaty, very yeasty; nutty and caramelly malty taste, yeasty, sweetish fruitiness, citrus, coriander, peach, mild grassy hop bitterish finish. I had this a few times in bad (infected) condition but I will not take that into consideration for this rating.

Rappelons le changement d’étiquette, vraiment très classe maintenant, avec un fond marron et un blason doré en haut avec une inscription anno 1908, et la mention Authentic Belgian Brewery en calligraphie dorée sous le nom de la bière. Bière ambrée de 6,5 % abv, avec du malt de froment et de la coriandre. Couleur ambre moyen. Léger trouble. Bulles inexistantes !! Mousse blanche qui tombe très vite, et pourtant mon exemplaire sera à date en février 2015 !! Arômes de pelure de pomme de terre, malt caramel, speculoos, pain d’épices. 1ère bouche douce sur du malt légèrement grillé, du pain gris, de la moutarde douce et une pointe de coriandre. Arrière-bouche sur du pain gris. 2ème bouche assez plate, sauf une pointe de girofle. 3ème où on revient sur du malt grillé. Arrière-bouche plus maltée, plus complète. La longueur s’ouvre sur des épices, des câpres, des herbes aromatiques assez imprécises, plutôt amère mais sans la classe. La levure est d’un niveau modeste mais bien constituée. L’alcool fait plus que son niveau papier, mais sans pouvoir relever le niveau des saveurs. La finale n’apporte rien de plus. CONCLUSION : une bière qui avait de nombreux atouts marketing, notamment l’appui de l’histoire de ce loup qui a terrorisé la région de Waas … Alors, peut-être que les loups apprécient ce goût assez âpre .. je ne peux vous le confirmer … mais cette bière ne peut prétendre à un niveau supérieur, notamment par une finale assez faible. Ceci dit, elle n’est pas non plus boiteuse.... le loup non plus !!

Bottle @home. Pours cloudy amber with white foam. Aroma is hoppy and spicy. Taste also hoppy. Soft carbonation, light to medium bitterness. Not bad.
