Bottle, shared by Papsoe. A hazy, orange-yellow-golden beer with a small, white head. Grainy, fruity and hoppy nose, a bit weaker than I would prefer. Grainy flavor with a nice fruityness, finishing rather fruity. Medium body, dry. I guess the hoppy impression in the aroma is due to something else, don’t know what. Overall, the beer is a bit on the grainy side, with the gruit left in the background. (090514)

Alengrin (1049) - BELGIUM - AUG 20, 2014
Gruut’s third, with creamy, moussy, stable head and misty ochre blonde colour. Mild spicy aroma, yeasty, peach, hazelnuts, apple peel, white bread, bog myrtle like in Gageleer, liquorice, cookies, cinnamon, ginger, bitter honey. Restrained fruity sweetness, some banana and peach, flowery and honeyish touch, fresh, soft spicy notes, soft bitter finish with a dry yeastiness. Hard to believe it isn’t hopped as they claim, but a good session ale in any case.

In der Nase hopfenwürzig, etwas grasig. Start süßlich-grasig. Fruchtige Mitte, herb, holzig. Abgang fruchtig und trocken bitter. Recht gut.

Mousse peu présente, peu pétillante, légčre amertume qui s’estompe trčs vite. Bičre neutre, sans plus.

SimonBeer (102) - Amersfoort, NETHERLANDS - JUN 17, 2014
(Drinking date: 17 June 2014) Hazy golden orange colour with a small layer of white foam. Looks delicious. Spicy aroma, especially laurell (laurier). Not really intense. The taste is really delicious. Really soft taste, and especially laurell in the taste. The taste reminds me of the Westmalle tripel, but this beer is softer and fresher. The beer is not sweet and not bitter. Really well balanced. Soft body, not too watery, medium carbonation. Very well done. One of the best blonde beers I have ever had. More special than the others.
