Hamirubi (347) - Waarschoot, BELGIUM - OCT 2, 2015
33cl bottle at Trappistenhuis, Ghent (2 X 2015). This is the beer created by the pub owner: A hazy, even cloudy white to yellow and even beige brew with a nice white thick collar. Good looking for sure. The nose has most earth and some dirt flavours - yet these aren’t unpleasant. The round taste has clear bitter and malt features, with a distinctive endive feeling. This ale almost has that citrussy wheatbeer feature. In the taste, one can also discover a keen sour note, adding complexity to the tasteful wheatbeer-acting brew.

Bosbouw (2123) - Gemonde, NETHERLANDS - JAN 24, 2015
Heldere gouden kleur met een goede kraag. Ruikt fruitig, kruiden, beetje citrus. Smaakt fris, zoetig, vanille, kruiden.

Alengrin (3547) - BELGIUM - AUG 22, 2014
The Trappistenhuis’ home beer brewed at De Graal and named after proprietor Johan Uytterhaegen, who is very knowledgeable about Belgian beers (not sure if he is still there, though). Off-white, not very stable head, misty ochre blonde colour. Citrussy and malty, bit grainy aroma, orange, caramel, grass, a bit phenolic too but fortunately this weakens quickly. Fruity taste with medium carbonation, light and a bit too neutral, light bitterish finish but a bit thin. Far less a personality than its commissioner, but not offensive and thirst-quenching.

Bart (2938) - Brussels, BELGIUM - APR 10, 2013
33cl Bottle @ home. Golden blond coloured beer with some light carbonation and a small diminishing white head. Rather light hoppy herby hinted aroma with some sweeter notes. Full palate. Finish is light sweet pilsener malts, short herby bitter touch. Not convincing.

Een vlotte doordrinker, ook maar 6,5%. Zeker niet slecht, maar niets speciaals
