Kortrijk-Dutsel is a 100 % natural product, brewed with only the best Belgian grains and hops. It is slowly and carefully brewed in the classical multiple steps brew method, staying close to the old brew tradition. Its delicate taste is very refreshing with delicious fruity aroma’s and body. It looks familiar to sparkling white wine but it’s a beer. Alc.vol.8,5%.

Editor’s Note: labeled as 8.9% in the US.

More interesting than expected. Fruity yeast, Brett like even, light funk. Light simple grain bill. And moderately hopped (yet sufficient for the style, with Noble hops). Pleasant surprise, pleasant drink! Odd American texts on the bottle, probably export only. Why? Well, no reason not to drink this! (75cl bottle from Delhaize Heverlee)

Bottle poured into flute champaign glass. Very light bubbly head with a hazy apple juice colored body. Smells of pear, apples, hay and some funk. Tastes of pear upfront then yellow apples left on the palate. Decent beer, different than most but alright overall.

Bottle. Slightly hazy yellow color, white coca cola head and champagne bubbles. Aroma is grainy, nutty peach. Taste has slightly sour citrus, raw bread. Interesting.

Alengrin (3684) - BELGIUM - AUG 24, 2014
’Apéritif’ beer from a micro brewery which was first called Den Engel but had to change its name because there was already a German brewery of the same name, apparently. Loose, off-white head on a champagne-coloured beer. Aroma of oatmeal, green apple, sour cream, fried eggs, prosecco and off-putting odours of plastic and, sorry, urine. Light sourish taste, soft mouthfeel thanks to the oats, but not well-balanced and ending in a phenolic, unpleasant finish. I am willing to give this a second chance though, perhaps it has improved meanwhile.
