Alengrin (3861) - BELGIUM - JUL 26, 2014
Old-fashioned ’spéciale belge’ (the Palm and De Koninck style) with a loosely structured yet thick, light beige head and pure amber colour, almost clear, with lively sparkling. Yeasty and fruity nose with orange peel, old bread, iron, cloves, pineapple, hay, peppery hops. Taste a citrussy fruitiness at first (orange, lemony sourishness), bit apply, nut- and caramel-like malts as expected, yeasty, strong carbonation, clearly metallic even more so towards the end, mild spicy hops in the finish, quite long and dry.

manuchampions (1243) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 30, 2009
250ml bottle from 16th St.Liquor West Vancouver. Pours a clear golden brown with two centimeters of lingering creamy foam. I thought I got a peaty aroma as I poured it(?). Closer sniffing suggests more of a slightly smoky malt with an almst iodine funk mixed in. Taste is fairly thin. Some caramel, with a light hop presence...no particular flavours to pick out here, rather generic, light Belgian beer. Surprisingly pedestrian. I guess like most other places in the world Belgium can also be the home to mediocre offerings as well as stellar ones.

great beer for a thirsty belgian folk. Founded on tap at the brewery itself where it taste wonderfull, a bit less better on bottle (looks like the refermentation was a bit hasardous) I really enjoy that amber beer with bready aromas and a strong flavour.

really nice try from the binchoise brewery. A perfect beer served on tap and a pretty great one from the bottles. I enjoy totally that kind of real BELGIAN BEER... certainly the name amazing... But as all belgians shall said : "vla une bonn’peinte" And it’s right. Lightly amber ale, nice nose of cara malts, not too much carbonated, just as needed for washing the tongue if drank when eating some "mitrailette-fricadelle-mayonnaise", the beer can be drank again and again as it’s never too much of that greatly refreshing hops touch...

oh6gdx (23912) - Vasa, FINLAND - NOV 2, 2008
Bottled (from Belgian Shop, early 2008). Amber colour, mediumsized off-white head. Some lace. Aroma is bready, slightly yeasty as well as some mild notes of wood. Flavour is strongly wooden, mildly spicy along with some hints of fruits and grass.
