The contents of the bottle ‘sploded upon unleashing and left copious quantities of particulate matter swirling erratically… Appearance is a honey color, hazy, with plenty of bits. Noticeably carbonated with a fine white head that leaves a nice layer. Aroma is sweet and fruity, bubblegum with tartness and a yeasty, earthy background. Flavor has a sweet start, with malt and spices and a crisp light hop finish. Mouthfeel is medium bodied and creamy with a good representation of co2. A complex brew, but hard to pin down; well balanced and smooth. A pleasant drink.

Bottle. Touches of sour cherry and earthy wood on the nose. Candy sugar, brandy notes, hints of spice and a light funkiness in the body. Funky bitter-sweet finish.

Alengrin (2087) - BELGIUM - AUG 21, 2014
De Bie’s spiced dubbel, since 1992. An ale with a warm bronze colour and fruity, caramelly and sweetish character, maize fortunately subdued in the taste, spices clearly present. A beer with an own personality, as any good Belgian ale should have, though not my personal cup of tea.

Entre l’amrée et la blonde, mousse abondante. Nez de sucre candy, caramel, levure, raisin sec. Gout très sucré, le caramel et la levure dominent.

Ins Glas ergießt sich ein leicht trübes bernsteinfarbenes Bier mit ordentlicher Schaumkrone. Geruch hefig, malzig süß, leicht würzig. Geschmack leicht hefig, fruchtig malzig, Gewürze, blumig.

Really a thick flavour, if that is enjoyable, I have no clue. On some occasions I love this beer, next to a BBQ or sitting in my backyard in the sun. Still one of those beers that you can’t put a name on it! The herbs are surely there. On some occasions this beer is so untastefull, I just want to throw it away. I have a hate-love affair with this one. That tells me something as well.
