Hertenheer was initially brewed at Hofbrouwerijke but due to the success, the beer is then brewed in larger quantities at the Scheldebrouwerij and now, according to the label, at Anders in Halen. Also the recipy has slightly changed.

Lowenbrau (2416) - Asturias, Oviedo, SPAIN - JUL 7, 2014
330ml bottle from El Lúpulo Feroz, Oviedo. @home 07-07-2014.
BBD: out of date for few months.
In short: a "sweet bitter" ale.
Pours some hazy dark golden amber, with little white head, soapy one. Short head retention, some lacing. Honey, herbal, caramel and yeasty aromas. Medium body, high carbonation, crispy texture. Taste is a bit harsh (overcarbonated), some honey sweet, mild bitterness, herbal, some grassy. Average belgian.

goozen (3174) - Leiden, NETHERLANDS - JUN 26, 2014
Bottle 0,33ltr: Hazy blonde colored brew with dry bitter taste and hints of citrus fruits. Great blonde beer with fine thirst queching abilities.

JorisPPattyn (8202) - Ursel, BELGIUM - JUN 26, 2014
Very good and dense yellowish head, stable, over orange beer, lazily carbonated. Very "beery" nose with lightly toasted malts, hint at hops, white candi sugar, bit of citrus and lots of yeast. Quite bitter and very dry, totally attenuated, and with an obviously generous hopgift. Very long bitter, hoppy aftertaste, even a bit metallic. Bonedry and not surprisingly not very well bodied. Pretty good, in the end. Oh, and it’s brewed at Anders...

ST247 (436) - Antwerp, BELGIUM - JUN 22, 2014
Bottle @home. Pours golden with a big creamy, adhesive white head. Aroma is fruity, malt. Fruity and malty aroma. Light to medium bitterness. Dry and bitter finish.

Orange-dorée voilée, effervescence moyenne, col blanc moyen. Les malts sont rapidement dépassés par la puissance des houblons qui donnent une bonne amertume herbeuse, légčrement épicée et un rien fruitée avec l’une ou l’autre de miel sur la fin.

Butelka 33cl. OCZY : piwo jest mętne o kolorze pomarańczowym. Piana jest średniej wielkości; o konsystencji ubitego białka, o kolorze białym. NOS : aromat jest słodki o mocnych nutach tarty i świeżego pieprzu. Dochodzą aromaty mleczne jak śmietana i twaróg. Wyczuwalna jest również świeżość owoców takich jak morela, banan i cytrusy. Ogólnie piwo zapowiada typowe estry belgijskie i ziołowe chmiele. USTA : piwo jest mocno gazowane o średnim nasyceniu. Kremowe w ustach. Piwo ma faktycznie mocne nuty słodowe, które są dosyć słodkie. Ale bardzo szybko uderza moc chmieli goryczkowych. Wychodzą nuty ziół i pestek gorzkich cytrusów. Gorycz jest wytrwała. Do tego trzeba dodać wyraźne nuty mlecznej kwaskowatości podobnych do śmietany albo sera feta. ODCZUCIA : jest to piwa bardzo satysfakcjonujące ale pomimo stosunkowo malej zawartości alkoholu, jest mocne pod każdym względem. Silne estry i gorycz. Świetne uczucie w ustach... mi smakuje. Trochę brakuje mu subtelności w porównaniu z np. Zinnebier. OCENA : smak : 7/10 pijalność : 6/10

KnutAlbert (6312) - Oslo, NORWAY - APR 29, 2014
Bottle at Zythos 2014. Hazy blond, complex aroma, crisp bitter flavour. None of the cloying fruitiness that thends to overwhelm, but clean taste.

Douberd (2910) - Arnhem, NETHERLANDS - FEB 26, 2014
Bottle at home, 330 ml. Into a tulip. ABV 6.5% Deep orange colour on the body, with a tall white head, a thick one. Fantastic retention, it wouldn’t collapse no matter how long I waited. Aroma of caramel, yeast. Nice and fruity, what one expects from a belgian ale, plus some funky notes. Taste is yeasty, some peaches, again some of the funkiness, very bitter and especially on the aftertaste. Medium thick body, carbonation is high. Nice dryness on the palate. Overall another surprise, with unexpected bitterness. Great!
