Something about this beer just MAKES you enjoy it! Has a nice billowing head that doesn´t disapear after the first sip. This beer produces a one of a kind aroma that just dares you to taste it. It bites a little at first but goes down quite easily after first sip. The unique thing about Grimbergen is that it leaves a wonderful taste in you mouth. This is a must try for anyone!

30cl bottle. Poured a clear brown with minimal head. Nose had vinegar, and some candy malt. Flavor was a mix of sweet and sour. malty sweetness, but with a dose of vinegar too. Maybe this bottle was going bad, because it didn’t taste like any other double I’ve had. But it was still drinkable.

This bottled brew poured a large sized head of foamy frothy mix fine to large sized long lasting light brown colored bubbles thick lace. The body contained soft carbonation, was hazy and brown in color. Its aroma contained notes of mild brown malt . Its mouth feel is slightly thick caramel with a mellow palate and a aftertaste. Its flavor contained good brown beer caramel malt toffee notes and was very tasty. An excellent beer that I would buy again.

6 pack of 25ml bottles from Auchan. Seriously what would I do without France to give me access to such a wide variety of beers? Darkish ruby colour with thin off white head. Candy sugar with banana yeast aroma. Sugar syrup fruit in the mouth with decent malts I guess and then a banana yeast sharpish finish. Brown sugar though still within it. Not terribly well integrated. The banana yeast flavour is ok, but doesn’t sit well with the candy sugar.. Like a banana split with caramel drizzled over it. Not keen on this. Now who can I get to drink the rest of the 6 pack?

Poured with creamy white off-white head interlaced with larger bubbles, very nice lacing. Nose of plum, malt, and brown sugar. Taste was sweet and earthy, with a slightly metallic aftertaste. It is really tasty, just that first metallic twang in the first sip really didn’t seem right. After several more drinks, I didn’t seem to notice it as bad. Not sure what caused that, but I am willing to drink this again.
