25/09/2010 - 75cl @ Karakterbierfestival Bissegem

Pours a bright yellow to almost orange beer, fine white head, disappears quickly. Smell has a lot of honey, sugar, candy. MF is very sparkling, even though it has lacked fermentation in the bottle. Full body. Taste of roasted malts, honey, nuts and hopbitters. Aftertaste is hopbitter, spices and bitter lemon.

BlackHaddock (3485) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - APR 7, 2012
This 0.75 Litre cork and caged bottle was taken at the lovely bar/tasting room of Díelices Et Caprices in Brussels during Dec 2011. The brew is based on the regular Jessenhofke (which has garlic in it) and has extra spices added to those already in the base beer: all the spices are listed on the back label. Our glasses held a slightly hazy body of orange coloured beer, on top a well formed but thin white head, the third pour was a bit cloudier as the sediment left the bottle with the remaining beer. The aroma was an interesting mix of yeasts, herbs and a sweet smell from the malts and other spices used. The taste is a good blend of flavours, sweet and yet semi-bitter, fruity, herbal and earthy, all at the same time. It isnít bold or brash; more of a subtle, gentle feel to the taste and mouth feel. Carbonisation was just about right and suited the beer nicely. I had another bottle on New Years Eve and found it just as pleasant as the one I reviewed when in Brussels.

tania_nexust (27) - Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 22, 2014
Pours fairly bright - left the sediment in the bottle. Fairly effervescent, Aroma is of a fairly typical Belgian tripel - alcohol quite dominant, some hops coming through, a herb/spice note and a sweet lift at the end. Flavour is of a bitterish tripel, with some hints of complexity from the herbs and additives, but this is tantalisingly short of bringing bigger flavours to the party. Itís certainly lovely and drinkable - so if thatís what was being aimed for, then itís a great success. But it would be a little more interesting to have some of those flavour components coming out a bit more.

erickok (3419) - Tours (and Paris), FRANCE - JUN 22, 2011
Yellow-golden body thatís - when poured with the yeast - cloudy. Head looks soapy. The yeast also really changes the aroma. Starts with fresh cookie dough, lavender, green leaves, apple cider and ending with cheesy notes and banana. Easily drinkable but not overwhelming body. Little too watery - except again for the last yeasty bit - although fairly well balanced and not as sweet as I somehow expected from this herb-infused beer. Slightly dry aftertaste. In the end itís a decent drink but nothing too fancy. (75cl bottle, 7,00 EUR)

Douberd (1999) - Arnhem, NETHERLANDS - NOV 13, 2013
330 ml bottle, labeled as PMPRNL. Into a tulip glass. ABV 8* Golden orange colour on the body, a bit pale and not so bright, also just a tad hazy. Two fingers of white head sitting on top, thick, with very good retention and medium lacing on the glass. Aroma is fruity like a typical belgian ale, with peaches and a little bit of apricot, but also with wheat and hops. Taste also very close to the average belgian ale, fruity, with sugar, light yeast. Aftertaste has bubblegum notes and light bitterness. Medium thin body, average carbonation, maybe a hit too high. Overall a beer close to the style guidelines but very refreshing and highky drinkable nevertheless.
