COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bruegel is an easy drinking soft and tasty amber ale. Thanks to the refermentation it offers more body, more head and more taste than most other American and Belgian Amber ales. It is brewed with Dutch barley and German hops. Although the bitterness is clearly present, it is not dominant.

Kittenbieer (28) - LYON, FRANCE - SEP 17, 2016
Robe ambrée foncée et trouble. Mousse très abondante et persistante.Un nez d’intensité faible qui dégage des odeurs d’herbes coupées. Très légère en bouche avec une petite pointe d’acidité et d’amertume: goût terne et "terreux". L’arrière bouche est sèche avec une sensation d’aigreur. Bière qui a peu de caractère et laisse sur une impression d’eau amère et aigre!

appiantiqua (39) - Lyon, FRANCE - SEP 17, 2016
Goûtée dans un verre Duvel. Robe ambrée et mousse blanc cassé. Nez levuré et herbacé. Le goût combine notes végétales peu définies et amertume discrète. L’arrière bouche hésite entre amer et aigre. Terne ....

Bottle from E.Leclerc Supermarket, Grasse, France. Bright amber coloured with a large foamy white head. It has a rich spicy red fruit and banana flavour with earthy notes followed by almond and hints of dried fruit and candi sugar on the smooth, warming finish. Pretty nice.

Bottle from JSG Wine Merchants, Hills Road, Cambridge. Somewhere between dirty blond and light brown. A lovely whitish head on top and plenty of carbonation. Gummy caramel aroma, some barley sugar, some plastic. Taste is overly sweet but has a nice yeasty umami about it. Some leafy hop on the finish, slightly vegetal aftertaste. Fully carbonated, thin to medium body. Pretty average.

Bottle from de Bierschuur in Poppel. The beer is deep golden/amber colored and pours a large and stable white head, with rich carbonation. The aroma is malty with tones of caramel, dark fruits and hint of wood and coriander. Taste is light to medium bodied, little sweet and very fruity with a hoppy bitterness. The finish is sweet and light bitter.
