Vrij mouterig bier met Caramel, bruine suiker. Heel licht wat limoen in de achtergrond. Behoorlijk zoet, rond en licht bittertje. Ik mis iets extra?s om door die zoete Caramel laag heen te snijden. Blijft wat mat daardoor.

Alengrin (3686) - BELGIUM - JUL 4, 2015
A Dutch ’edelbier’ hovering between a Belgian strong blonde and a Belgian strong dark. Moussy, pale greyish beige, fairly stable head leaving a pretty, dustweb-shaped lacing after a while; colour a deep orangey copper, fully transparent and clear, with vivid sparkling. Sweet and malty aroma of honey, butterscotch, coriander seed, clear pasteurisation, cookie dough, banana liqueur, toasted bread, candied orange, lots of brown sugar, cognac, weaker hints of sweet cherry candy, liquorice, iced tea, rotting grass and some unmistakable ’damp cloth’, plus a faint hint of onsetting oxidation - this bottle is not as fresh as expected, apparently. Sweet onset, honeyishly sugary, candied fruit, raisins, some red apple peel astringency, fairly full and softish mouthfeel, slightly metallic with medium carbo; resiny, bittersweetish coriander is obvious, as is a bourbon- or brandy-like alcohol presence which already becomes a bit wry on the tongue before swallowing. Underneath, there is a straightforwardly caramelly and smoothly toasted maltiness. Finish is lingering candied or honeyish sweetness, a little bit cloying, lingering caramelly malts, some herbal hop bitterness for balance without becoming truly bittering and the expected fair dose of brandy-like alcohol, not just warming, but actually burning a bit; the coriander provides a certain amount of resiny ’drought’. Too alcoholic, too artificially sweet and could do with some more body (actually refermenting it in the bottle would already prove helpful!), this is not a very subtle beer, but still enjoyable alright if you like your ’Belgians’ sweet and big on alcohol.

Heldere koperen kleur met een volle kraag. Ruikt zoet, moutig. Smaakt erg zoet, plakkerig. Slecht.

30cl bottle at home. Clear amber brown with a medium white soapy head. Medium body with low to moderate carbonation. Very sweet with some bitter tones in its finish. Caramel, dark fruits, malts and some spices. A tad too sweet for me.

tricksta_p (2420) - Steenwijk, NETHERLANDS - JAN 24, 2015
Aroma of red fruits, caramel, sugar, butterscotch. Flavour is heavy sweet and cloying with a light bittersweet finish. Not for me.

Donkerrood bier met matige schuimkraag. Een zoetige geur met een geur die ik niet thuis kan brengen. Ook de smaak is zoetig, smaak van mout en koriander en een ietwat bittere nasmaak met een voor mij niet bekende smaak. Vreemd biertje.
