2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
One of those beers the famed beer shop Hopduvel in Ghent commissions at Van Steenberge. An orange blond bear with stable, off-white head and fruity, estery and yeasty profile, a bit thin mouthfeel seen its strength and dry finish with warming and somewhat wry alcohol. A side by side tasting with Van Steenberge’s own Piraat and Boucanier beers would seem interesting - but in any case, this Stropken clearly bears the Van Steenberge stamp.
