PotjeBier (1935) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - MAY 5, 2015
Notes from early 90. Bottle. Amber color. Aroma’s: herbs & spices, sugarry. Flavor is only light sweet. Medium bodied. Long finish, mainly with herbs & spices. Not quite balanced.

ShivanDragon (2080) - Leeuwarden, NETHERLANDS - JAN 10, 2015
schenkt amber met witte kraag. Aroma is redelijk aanwezig in de vorm van iets peer achtigs, verder lijkt het wel wat op champagne/wijn aroma.... vreemd.... Smaken zijn behoorlijk aan de caramel kant, ook iets van frutigheid en fruitzuurtje, peer/appel.. wederom vreemd... verder matig zoet, licht bitter, zeer vreemd smaken en ruikend biertje, kan niet zeggen dat het vies is ... maar echt lekker is het nu ook weer niet

cmc619 (499) - California, USA - SEP 6, 2014
Pours an orange-brown with a bit of haze. Nice caramel malt and hoppy aroma. Actually one of few beers in Belgium that remind me of a hoppy American amber ale. There’s a bit too much harsh bitter in this, maybe blending with some overheat from the alcohol. A bit of a musty note to it as well.

Alengrin (3019) - BELGIUM - AUG 13, 2014
’Streekbier’ from Diest but brewed in Melle, with yellowish white, moussy, stable head and darkish orange blonde colour with brownish hue probably due to ageing, cloudy and a bit ’soupy’ with obvious yeast and protein flakes floating around everywere. Nutty and caramelly malts in the nose, apple, lemon zest, grapefruit, cooked rhubarb, cloves, dough, pepper, honey. Subdued fruity taste, some citrus, sharp carbonation, malty caramelly middle, finish medium hoppy, pleasantly bitterish. Tasted at 4 years of age and apart from the somewhat messy appearance, this was still quite enjoyable, though I will probably not remember it for the rest of my life.

Lowenbrau (2520) - Asturias, Oviedo, SPAIN - MAR 20, 2014
330ml bottle. Not sure how or when i got it but it was in my collection.
In short: average dubbel.
From old notes: An average abbey dubbel beer. Some malty, caramel and liquorice, some liquor notes. Alcohol noticed.

Trappist1 (642) - Diest, BELGIUM - AUG 26, 2013
Amber van kleur, warme uitstraling. Zoet in de neus, perensiroop? Beetje karamel in de zoete lange afdronk. Helemaal op het einde kleine metaalachtige toets. Blijft wat plakkerig in de mond. Leuk bier.

mike_77 (3789) - Breda, NETHERLANDS - JUL 27, 2013
Orange/copper colour. Decent lasting thin head. Aroma is spicy, peppery. Low carbonation. Quite a smooth feel. Soft malts. A little bit sweet with some spiciness on the tongue.

BlackHaddock (4692) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - OCT 30, 2012
19th Oct 2012: 33cl bottle in ’t Puur Genot, a strange Irish type bar in Diest. The 7.5% ABV beer came out into my glass like dirty dish water, murky and grubby brown looking, nice head of off-white bubbles though. Caramel and candy sugar aroma and flavour to the brew: a lot more malts than hops in this unbalanced, yet not unpleasant beer. Fruity notes came through as it warmed a little but the overiding taste was of sweetness from maltly molasses. The alcohol could be found and some yeastiness also: but although I enjoyed the bottle I didn’t order another, nor will I ever again.

9/VII/2012 - 33cl bottle from Willems (Grobbendonk) @ home - BB: III/12 (2012-707)

Clear copper red beer, big noisy off-white head (yes, it makes noise!), unstable, non adhesive. Aroma: ripe banana, overripe fruit, bit spicy, citrus, little chemical, bit dusty, paint. MF: good carbon, medium to light body. Taste: malty, grains, bit of caramel, mocha, burnt toast, spicy bitterness, little metallic and slightly sourish, overripe fruits and banana. Aftertaste: bitter, grains, little metallic, sour touch. Not very good, yet not undrinkable either.
