Flaska från belgianbeerfactory.com. Lätt grådaskigt gyllengul färg med två fingrar högt skum. Fruktig och citrusig doft. Lätt beska med viss syrlighet. Munnen fylls av en bestående eftersmak från aprikospure.

OldMrCrow (2145) - Seattle, Washington, USA - AUG 20, 2014
Bottle in Santa Barbara. Golden pour, white head. Yeasty nose, flavor modest on the esters, a bit grainy and a bit alcohol-forward. Somewhat disappointing, like the others in this series.

Alengrin (3148) - BELGIUM - AUG 3, 2014
Probably the most well-known of the Sterkens ’kruikenbieren’ in ceramic bottles, for the Bokrijk open air museum. Moussy, stable, yellowish head, colour peach blonde, almost amber, lightly misty with some protein flakes. Flowery and fruity aroma of orange, pear, caramel, cheese, butter, wheat, coriander, white pepper, honey, cognac. Taste sweet and fruity, malty, hints of gingerbread, but a bit collapsing towards the end with too much astringent alcohol and too little hops for balance. Maybe the bottle I had was just in bad condition, because I suspect this can be a lot better when younger.

750 ml ceramic bottle into tulip glass, best before 7/10/2017. Pours lightly hazy/cloudy golden amber color with a 2 finger dense and rocky white head with great retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Nice soapy lacing clings on the glass, with a good amount of streaming carbonation retaining the head. Aromas of big peach, apricot, lemon, pear, apple, honey, candi sugar, bread, light clove, light pepper, herbal, and yeast earthiness. Damn nice aromas with great balance and complexity of fruity/earthy yeast and pale malt notes; with great strength. Taste of big peach, apricot, lemon, pear, apple, white grape, honey, bread, candi sugar, light clove, light pepper, herbal, and yeast earthiness. Lingering notes of peach, apricot, lemon, pear, apple, white grape, honey, candi sugar, bread, light clove, herbal, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Fantastic complexity of fruity/earthy yeast ester and pale malt flavors; with a great malt/yeast flavor balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth and lightly slick/crisp mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is an awesome Belgian golden ale. All around great balance and complexity of fruity/earthy yeast and pale malt flavors; and very smooth to sip on. A highly enjoyable offering.

VALIS (229) - Nashua, New Hampshire, USA - MAR 7, 2013
Faint scent of apples, white grape, faint lemon. Tastes a little sweet, but not excessively so. Dry finish. Solid.

Landmonger (156) - USA - SEP 25, 2012
Poured from bottle into a tulip, stars with a very generous head which settles down to a thin layer, the aroma is yeast, bread lemon, the carbonation is pleantiful and crisp, taste is lemon, some fruit and spice, the feel is good but more to the side of a refreshing summer beers, ends of nice mild warmth very enjoyable.
