(Keg at Black Door, 20131025) I was surprised that I hadn’t rated this classic beer. The beer poured deep amber and clear. Its head was medium sized and white. Aroma had malts, caramell and Belgian style yeast. Palate was medium bodied with medium carbonation. Flavours were malts, caramell, Belgian style yeast, grass and bitterness. Aftertaste had Belgian style yeast, malts and bitterness. A solid Belgian brew: dull but it works.

A true classic, this special belge. Caramalt, with a sweet-bitter taste. Refreshing.

OK aroma, not really big. Kind of malty. Appearance is OK. reddish, little bit of head. taste is kind of sweet, then bitter. Also metallic. Not a very big beer. Very average.

Must be drunk from the tap: somehow it doesn’t bottle well. Very aromatic, great carbonation, subtly bitter and with a beautiful colour, this is a very fine example of the Belgian ’ale’-style. In Antwerp, it is never ordered by name, but by the shape of the glass you prefer: ’bolleke’ or ’flotje’. that is, a trappist-style big glass or a flute-like small one.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Aroma grain malt bread with a spicy undercoat. Taste is nutty, sweet, malty, a bit of fruitiness at the front, this disappears quickly and the middle is empty and the finish is spicy, lightly bitter and slightly metallic with prickly carbonation and sticky lips. Not bad, not great.
