Alengrin (1350) - 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 (1917) - 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 (477) - 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 (3037) - 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 (3657) - 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.

sebletitje (6648) - Enghien, BELGIUM - JUN 17, 2012
33cl bottle from Dranken Geers, BB 05/2012. Bottle shows brewed at Loterbol. Ambrée, col beige fin. Arôme de brassin, fruitée rouges/noirs sur une pointe sucrée rappelant des prunes. En bouche, fruité aspect lactique, malté allant vers la mélasse/sucre candi avec un profile fruité noir persistant. Malt en retrait sur note de caramel, simple mais agréable fini sur une pointe d’épice et de prune.

77ships (3737) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - JUN 16, 2012
33 cl. bottle @ Kulminator // no clear indication of age but given the mould on the label & taste, it is probably not a recent one, I speculate that this is about 3 yrs old // hazy amber with a decent, solid off-white head // this has a very heavy yoghurt thing going on, on the nose, lots of yoghurt yeast, some barnyard & spices here as well // taste is dominated as well by yoghurt yeast, highly doubt that this was part of the original flavour profile, spices, Belgian yeast, bitter cloudberries, spices, touch barnyard & dash of booze in the back // carb. going touch softer, yoghurt yeast heavy body // agreable

(33cl bottle best by May 2011 thanks to bu11zeye) clear amber, with a few translucent bubbles. Nose and taste of orange, alcohol, spicy Belgian yeast, a bit oxidized and also a little bit bitter.

Benzai (8145) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - AUG 10, 2011
Bottle @ home. Slightly hazy orange color, thick white head. Smell malts, yeast, slight sweetness, barnyard and something herbal or medicinal. Taste a bit dry, yeasty, malty and a little earth. Low to medium carbo and body.
