Hamirubi (541) - Waarschoot, BELGIUM - FEB 20, 2016
33cl bottle at home (20 II 2016). Huge foamy white thick collar topping a golden, yellow brew with vivid carbonation. Slick looking and spirit-like flavoured brew with keen hints of Belgian yeast and malts. There are some herbs in there as well, making a good combo for a Belgian strong ale. The taste is pretty spot on. At the first sip, you get welcomed by the sweetness of the malts, evolving in a bitterish body. The flavours are soft, smooth, sweetly enjoyable. The 9 percentage ABV does not feel that strong - although there definitely is an alcoholic warming ending - I expected it to be stronger, sharper. The subtle carbonation even makes this strong beer to a mild quencher. It also is less complex than I had it in my mind (I drank this years ago, at the launch or so) adding to this strong ale... A kind of dullness. Oh well, it just is a good flavoured, modest bodied, sweetened Belgian ale with a better nose than palate.
