2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
UPDATED: JUL 2, 2016 Tasted in 2010 and again now in 2016. Beer celebrating Flanders’s cycling culture. Violent gusher (2016 version at least) - and then I see the ominous name of Gaverhopke, why am I not surprised... Evidently thick, papery, cream white, sticky head, cloudy peach blonde colour. Strong yeasty sourishness in the nose along with banana ester, gingerbread, lemon zest, sugared rhubarb, damp straw, dough, hints of yoghurt, cardboard, hay, dried mushrooms and green apple. Strongly carbonated onset, minerally, banana-like estery sweetness, gooseberry, yellow plum, bready malt base, sourish hint making the finish dryish, accompanied by a mild earthy and grassy hop bitterishness and some retronasal clove-like phenols, however stronger in the original version than in the current Gaverhopke version; ends very earthy, almost potato starch-like, including a ’powdery’ mouthfeel. I can take a slight amount of gushing but just like most other Gaverhopke beers, this is just ridiculous. I do not understand how this passed Delhaize’s quality standards - this tasting is based on a bottle from a Delhaize pack - and I sincerely hope Gaverhopke’s severe gushing problems will be solved now that they have installed a new brewery!
