Repeated draughts@Waterhuis a/d Bierkant, Ghent 2013-08/2014. Looks like a German Brauhaus Keller, smells like a more modern, faintly IPA-informed Belgian ale, remains very democratic in taste and undecisive in aftertaste with chunky pale malts fighting against a lazy hop profile, Willamette struggling in the hazy vortex to break free of heavy Belgian bonds. All the while refreshing, this unequal Old World vs New World struggle - could use a fresher update as the long-running house beer, though.

Alengrin (1350) - BELGIUM - AUG 15, 2014
Dry-hopped hobby brew commercialized for the Waterhuis aan de Bierkant in Ghent. Irregular, quite stable head, golden blonde to ochre colour, hazy. Fruity aroma with some diacetyl (buttermilk), some DMS (cooked cabbage) and clear green, herbal hops. Fruity and sweetish onset, evolving into an oily and resinous, green, long, aromatic hop bitterness. Interesting interpretation of the new hop wave among Belgian beers.

rickgordon (3843) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - JAN 7, 2014
On draught at Het Waterhuis aan de Bierkant in Gent. Light cloudy, deep yellow colour with fluffye white head. Aroma is citrusy, herbal and fruity from hops with no traces of Belgian yeast. Pretty light, still mouthfeel with soft carbonation. Medium fruity, medium sweet and soft on the palate. No phenols from yeast is detected. Medium bitterness. A pleasant beer.

Small draft sample @ Het Waterhuis aan de Bierkant in Gent. Hazy golden with a white head. Nose is citrus, white sugar sweet, sweet BE yeast & faint herbs. Taste is very sweet, white sugar, sweet BE yeast, citrus, sweet white bread, thick caramel, flowers, only very faintly bitter in the back. Thick BE yeast body. Overall a pretty big disappointment for me because when I see a score of 92/100 & read the words Dry Hopping, I don’t expect another overly sweet BE beer (only an okay one in that category). Where are my hops bro?

Nice hops showcase for this beer. Pours blonde with ok head and lacing. Some fruitiness and a little sweet malt leaves tang at finish. Average carbonation. On tap at Novare Res.
