Alert: first rating ever! Aroma: dough, something I can’t quite put my finger on. Appearance: clear golden with a nice foamy head that disappears quickly Taste: Too much of a rookie to accurately describe. I can find sweet and bitter in the taste, bitterness is not overwhelming. Palate: soft carbonation with a nice oily texture Overall: Very enjoyable overall, though not enough complexity for my taste. Take your time to enjoy this one, I’m sure you’ll like it!

Beese (2560) - Watford, Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - SEP 3, 2014

tfredvik (1253) - Oslo, NORWAY - AUG 30, 2014
Crystal clear, brilliant golden body with a small, white head that laces the glass well. Quite strong aroma of Belgian yeast, pale malts, spices and a whiff of alcohol. The flavour follows in the path of the aroma, but is not very strong. The alcohol is fairly well integrated. Moderate sweet taste and a light to moderate bitterness. Mid-bodied, oily texture, moderate carbonation, not much dryness. A decent beer, but a tad too sweet and faint.
[75 cl bottle shared with Svensenga Smak & Behag, enjoyed 2 years after bottling, from SuperBrugsen Nykøbing Sj., Denmark]

Botella de 33 cl de el c. Ingles tomada en junio de 2000. Etiquetada como rubis etiqueta roja. (fecha de cons pref para 26-01-2001. lot nr 0100). Oscura con aroma y sabor a maltas dulces y ligeramente tostadas con un sabor también dulce y algo especiado con ligero amargo final. Buena, aunque un pelin menos que la rubis. Cuerpo medio con 9 vol y buena sensación alcohólica.

Alengrin (2742) - BELGIUM - AUG 24, 2014
Blonde counterpart of the original Keizer Karel, launched in 2006. Snow white head, golden blonde colour with slight haze. Sweet and fruity, soft maltiness, some citrus, some caramel, impressions of peaches, red apple, honey and vanilla, warm alcoholic finish with mild hop bitterness. Not very interesting tripel, lacks personality, like all of Haacht’s beers.
