Blonde brassée pour les 200 ans de la taverne "Jan van Gent" à Oudenaarde en 2012, c’est ce que l’on appelle en pays flamand une "oud huis". Niveau abv de 8 %. Mon exemplaire était juste 13 jours avant sa date. Couleur doré moyen brillant, à la clarté nette. Bulles fines, par milliers, partout, très vives. Mousse blanc cassé, très épaisse, très crémeuse, stable à 7 mm. Superbe. Arômes de malt cara, babeurre, prune blanche, mirabelle, pointe de vergeoise. 1ère bouche très souple, quasi veloutée, à la belle entame malt/houblon, encore plus jolie que le nez. Arrière-bouche dense, large, belle. 2ème avec du bois mouillé, et du vin fortifié du Roussillon. Arrière-bouche bien ample et vineuse. 3ème sur du vin en vendanges tardives, vin cuit, fût, pointe de miel. Arrière-bouche très ample et de caractère. Longueur à la très grande évolution, vineuse, vraiment classe, avec quelques épices. Jambes fines, longues, adhérentes aux parois. Levure douce, riche, très belle ligne. Alcool tout à fait efficace, il organise les saveurs sur la longueur. Finale qui développe encore l’amplitude. CONCLUISION : une vraie surprise que cette Jan van Oudenaarde, pas loin de Gent .., qui nous distille (quel beau mot ..) des saveurs à la fois antiques, riches, bien harmonisées, amples … en plus d’un visuel impeccable. Que dit le Jan ?? Vaaf...(5).

Apparently, deluxe beer is a synonym of beer with a buttload of honey. If you like sugar and don’t fear diabeetus after you finished the bottle, this beer is for you. There is also a light aftertaste of alcohol, which is neat as it isn’t as strong as the 8% of alcohol would suggest. Seriously, it isn’t awful, but becomes quickly disgusting. A whole bottle might be difficult to drink.

Strong honey aroma. At first rather alcohol-full. Then more on the sweeter end of the tongue. A citrus hint in the brew.

erickok (5397) - Leuven, BELGIUM - NOV 13, 2015
Golden body, stable head. Sweet malts, Belgian yeast esters, quite dank. Simpler taste, nice refined malts, simple aftertaste. Enjoyable beer. (33cl bottle from ABS Drinks)

Commissioned beer now made by Slaapmutske, but according to Wacho this has been in existence for a long time and was originally made at Riva. Thick, stable, creamy, snow white head, pure and clear golden blonde colour. Aroma of starfruit, gooseberies, grass, sweaty grains, green tea and some off-putting odours of smokey, melting plastic (DMTS) and sewer water (H2S). Sweetish, fruity onset, banana, pineapple, fizzy carbo, pale malt sweetishness, slightly bready, bit honeyish, smooth, sourish accent as well as something vaguely toasted, finishing in herbal hop bitterishness but unfortunately badly hidden, wodka-like alcohol and retronasal DMTS as well. Not convinced by this, it has some errors and it does not really add anything to the already overcrowded Belgian strong blonde style.
