Alengrin (2464) - BELGIUM - AUG 8, 2014
Typical Belgian top-fermented thirst quencher aimed at tourism in Brugues and replacing the old Brugs Blond from Gouden Boom. A blonde ale with a mild fruitiness, sweetish with a hint of bourbon, finishing mildly herbally hoppy. Serves its purpose well, better than many of its congeners.

UPDATED: JUN 4, 2013 9/V/13 - on tap @ ’t Vosken (Gent) - BB: n/a (2013-450)

Clear blond to orange beer, creamy off-white head, pretty stable, bit adhesive, leaving a nice lacing in the glass. Aroma: fruity, some grains, citrus, bit soapy. MF: ok carbon, medium body. Taste: fruity start, pretty bitter, floral, bit soapy. Aftertaste: citrus, nice bitter hops, floral, bit soapy. Very decent, much better than expected.

hawthorne00 (2549) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - MAY 14, 2010
Pretty old bottle - bb 2008. Pours gold, head is just a cream coat. Honey and spice nose - cinnamon, cloves, galangal, coriander. Almost flat with hints it wasn’t once. Taste is orange sweet with some cheesy yeast and (nice) stale hops. The tiny hints of better beers (Chimay white, Orval, Duval) are just enough to be slightly annoying.

mkel07 (3725) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - APR 23, 2010
330ml bottle. Soft fluffy white head and a cloudy dark honeycomb colour. The head settles to leave a nice lacing on the glass. Port like aroma as spices and cloves fight for domination. Light in the mouth given the high alcohol content and leaves a strong long aftertaste.

Davros (2029) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - MAR 20, 2009
Thick luscious head settles to 1cm, earthy toffee kind of hazy amber. Nice lacing though. Aroma is of honey, raisins, wheat, funky/musty old hops (similar to a gueuze), hints of alcohol, cinnamon, and a hint of red wine. Taste is "wow" - reminds me of lindemans gueze, but with added coriander. Again, honey, cinnamon. Alcohol is highly noticeable. Hint of extract twang Bit of orange sherbert. Very watery finish with no bitter backing. Creamy carbonation, but feels watery on palate.

altonbrownd (3681) - Brussels, BELGIUM - FEB 6, 2009
Golden amber body, short head. Sweet and spicy nose. Fruity with taste of citrus. More spicy in the finish. A bit lackluster.
