Alengrin (2351) - BELGIUM - AUG 20, 2014
One of two luxury ales celebrating the 175th birthday of De Koninck brewery some years ago, the other being the Gusto 1833 Golden Blond. Thick and stable, creamy, light beige, sticky head, dark bronze colour with copper hue and fierce sparkling. Strong, fruity aroma of redcurrant, candied cherries, apple cider, orange zest, grassy hops, liquorice, cognac, ginger, iron; sweetish and spicy, liquorice-like onset with strong, mineral-like carbonation and a very faint saltiness, smooth and resinous mouthfeel, caramelly malt base with a hint of walnut, restrained sweetness but still a little bit sticky in the tail, otherwise a dry finish with soft bitterish, herbal hops, a good deal of warming, but not astringent alcohol and a drying effect of the strong carbonation. The better one of the two, in my view at least.

RW80 (708) - NETHERLANDS - DEC 28, 2013
0,7 cl bottle shared THT 10/2012. Appearance: red brown with a small white head. aroma: malty,red fruit, chocolate and acidic. smaken: Very safe in the middle of everything, medium sweet, medium bitter a bit of sourness and some fruit and malts. However the only suprise was the bit of sourness for the rest very safe and borring. Thin body and texture, high fizzy carbonation.

@Secret Sinterklaas, thanx !
THT 10/2012, meer dan een jaar gepasseerd, ben benieuwd wat dit voor impact op de smaak heeft gehad
rood/bruin helder met witte kraag
aroma: moutig, zoet, rood fruit en een licht zuurtje
smaken: redelijk zoet, matig bitter, licht zuur, matig fruitig wat rood fruit kers, matige gemout
body is vrij dun, textuur idem, lt niet zo’n spannend bier eigenlijk, had iets meer van verwacht van een bier ter ere van 175 jaar De Koninck !

MarcoDL (2340) - NETHERLANDS - OCT 20, 2013
Tastes like a stronger and fuller version of the Bolleke. It’s nice, but I wouldn’t drink it again.

JanEric (1027) - Meppel, NETHERLANDS - JUL 31, 2013
Reddish brown, with diminishing head. Aroma has alcohol, some fruits. Tastes like a strong oud bruin, a strong de koninck, nice, but not that special. At the sweeter side of the palate.

Bottle: Literally reddish-amber coloured, big creamy and rocky off-white head, hazy, but carbonation still visible, dried fruits and sweet caramel in the nose; moderate sweet flavour, medium bodied, quite soft; sweet fruity and slightly nutty finish with a delicate vinous-alcoholic aftertaste. Really good....
