NikkTwist (1744) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 23, 2012
Draft at Eulogy. Poured a cloudy carmel brown. Foamy white head left a little runny lace. Some untoasted grain flavors. Some carmel notes but not particularly sweet. Tastes like a very watered down dubbel. Slight sour and bitter present, but still more a ghost of a beer.

Alengrin (2425) - BELGIUM - AUG 15, 2014
Winter ale celebrating the year the Ename abbey was founded. Brownish amber robe, very fruity flavour, spicy notes, caramel-like malt sweetness, soft and rounded, medium carbonation. Generally perhaps a bit too sweet (or insufficiently hopped) but I liked this nevertheless and so far, this is the best Ename up till now, at least in my view.

Een van de beste bieren van ename (samen met hun tripel). Ik drink het regelmatig sinds ik het ken.

~Light fruity aroma with honey and caramel ~Pours a cloudy amberish color with small white head. ~Very sweet flavor of candi sugar, raspberry fruitness, bread. ~medium bodied with medium High CO2, lingering sweetness. ~This is a very sweet beer. Probably pair well with certain foods, but not all that great on its own. Still enjoyed it.

Theydon_Bois (9915) - The ’Sham, Surrey, ENGLAND - DEC 29, 2013
Bottle split at JF’s, 26/12/13. Hazy orange amber with a moderate off white covering that thins to a pond. Nose is tangy fruits, bitter orange, hay, grass, not too much going down. Taste comprises bitter orange notes, peach, orange marmalade, sugars, mandarin, straw, light yeast notes, pinch of spice. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, sweet finale. Ok stuff, drinkable but nothing to dynamic.

Just another strong Belgian blond beer. Bit like the Ename blond, but a bit more yeasty and spicey.

EddyBeer1 (925) - Brussels, BELGIUM - DEC 1, 2013
Ambrée rougeâtre, effervescence moyenne, mousse blanche abondante qui se termine en un col fin. Plutôt douce, assez bien maltée, un peu de caramel, petites notes de fruits et un rien florale. Pas mal mais banale et proche de la cuvée rouge de la même brasserie...

Bottle from Total Wine in Sacramento, CA. Pours hazy amber with a creamy white head. Aroma is Mildly spicy and fruity. Med body. Flavor is light roast malt with some fruity esters. Making me think of fruits de bois for some reason. Very nice Belgian. Finishing with fruits. Pretty dry. Mildly hoppy. Nice. Especially for the price!
