UPDATED: NOV 17, 2014 This rating concerns the original version of this beer, tasted at 8 months of age in 2005, when the brewery was still run by Eric Ameye. The bottle did not have a label... Pretty firm, yellowish white, moussy, regular head and dark burgundy colour, cloudy. Weird aroma of tomato, meat broth, brown sugar, cloves, liquorice, balsamic vinegar, sherry, dough. Sweetish taste, fruity esters, tomato, yeasty, dark malts, something ’umami’ and meaty, smooth, with low hop bitterness. Very strange but not really that bad - compared with the other original Gaverhopkes, at least.

Voor een kerstbier te zijn vond ik het net iets te weinig smaak hebben. Spijtig maar net niet

Dark orange with almost no head. Very tart with lots of sediment. Dark fruits, light malt. Not sure whether I got a bad one, or if it just sat too long.

Amber and clear. Aroma of apples. Slightly carbonated. Tastes cider like. Dry finish. Would prob go well with sausage that’s spicy.

gEUS (1720) - Linden, BELGIUM - OCT 3, 2013
330 ml bottle at home (taken from notes 25/03/2011) - pours cloudy orange with a fizzy off-white head. Aroma of sweet malts, honey, and some citrus. Taste is a strange mix of malts and spices, and a tad too sweet for my taste. Weird beer.

Bottle @ bandlys blålys. Clear amber body with a small white head. Aroma is bay leave, potroast and spices. Flavour is bay leave and spices. This is quite weird.

Bottle, bought @ De Hopduvel, Gent. Pours clear amber orange with a medium, rather fizzy white head. Stays as a thin film. Aroma has bog myrtle, sugar, light caramel, holly, light strawberry. Medium carbonation, dryish and slightly oily mouthfeel. Flavour has soft fruity tartness, light raspberry, pine, light spicy. Some lingering tartness with cranberry.

BlackHaddock (6317) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - JUN 1, 2013
Into a tasting glass from a 33cl bottle on 15th Dec 2012 at the 18th Essen Christmas Beer Festival. Dirty amber body with a thin white covering, didn’t look to great to be honest. Supposed to have Juniper Berries, Bog Mirtle and Cloves within the ingredients, I picked up none of those flavours or smells. I did however pick up a semi-sweet spiciness which I didn’t really take too. I found the beer strange and with weird traces and hints of earthiness and off-flavours: not the best beer of the day!

February 2012. Bottle. Spicy and yeasty aromas blended with light fruit. Deep orange with a white head. Spicy, sour and malty flavors. An odd beer.
