corkyrory66 (921) - BELGIUM - AUG 1, 2015
Pas du tout une « belgian strong ale », d’abord parce qu’elle n’a rien de strong, et surtout parce que c’est avant tout une spice/herb/vegetable. Niveau abv de 7,5 %. Couleur marron sombre, à l’opacité importante. Mousse beige très fine, stable à 2 mm. Arômes de décapant pour papier peint, baies noires, genièvre. 1ère bouche souple sur des baies de genièvre, avec de la chicorée et de la colle à bois. Arrière-bouche un peu sur le malt foncé. 2ème sur des baies sans aucune nuance. Arrière-bouche sans intérêt. 3ème sur genièvre, cassis, avec une pointe de nougat !! Arrière-bouche sans intérêt. Longueur sans valeur gustative. Jambes fines bien marquées. Levure épicée, assez curieuse. Alcool correct mais il n’aide en rien l’ensemble. Finale nulle. CONCLUSION : je ne sais pas où ce brasseur trouve ses recettes, mais ce doit être souvent sous la patte arrière d’un cheval … Spice, herb, et tutti quanti ...

33cl bottle. Slightly hazy dark brown colour with a small off-white head. Malty, yeasty, fruity and spicy aroma. Average to soft carbonation and medium to full body. Taste is medium sweet and light bitter with some fruity notes and a dry finish. Overall, an interesting beer.

Brune rougeâtre voilée, effervescence moyenne, col beige foncé trop abondant. Plutôt maltée, légèrement torréfiée, fruits noirs, toast, un peu aqueuse, toute petite amertume.
