COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Ce fut aussi l'une des bières brassées à la brasserie brabançonne "De Biertoren". Elle reflète de l'esprit estudiantin de la région de Leuven, mais déjà à un stade de fin d'études. Cette bière ambrée très mure laisse apparaître un ton presque mielleux balancé avec un fruité discret ainsi qu'un malt bien présent. Son amertume sans retrouve arrondie, lui donnant des allures d'une bière douce et facile. Elle est toutefois très capricieuse, et maligne en conclusion par un ton plus de caramel amer et sec. Tout à l'image de son étiquette, elle possède un superbechapeau de mousse régénéré par un perlé vivace et permanent.

jmgreenuk (3579) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - MAY 10, 2013
Bottle at the DISOB tasting, Den Haag. Poured a clear copper colour with a glass hugging off white head. The aroma and indeed the flavour are rich and fruity with red berries. It’s also a little metallic in the palate and somewhat sweet. Would quickly become sickly I feel.

Bottle @ ABCBeers, Dean’s scared of beer tasting. Hazy copper pour with chunks. Aroma of metallic sugary malts with sweaty malts and madeira. Flavor is sweet malty sugars, boring and off balance.

AtronSeige (469) - Johannesburg, SOUTH AFRICA - FEB 12, 2013
Pours a golden copper slightly with a large beige frothy head. The head subsides leaving good lacework. I assume clumped yeast is what is floating in the beer, as the bottle has yeast in it. Aroma starts with a sweet caramel and slight spiciness. The flavor is very metallic. Disappointing! However, the mouthfeel is a good medium, with good carbonation and a slight creamy feel. A medium dry finish, with a slight alcohol warming. Overall, a good beer, I think the metallic is possibly from age or bad handling. Will get more and try again.

75cl bottle from the Bier Koning, it was a few years past it’s best before date. From notes from a couple of years back. No carbonation. Golden pour is yellowish. Port in the aftertaste.
