3/IV/14 - 33cl bottle from de Bierloods/Zytholoog (Adegem) @ home - BB: XI/2015 (2014-333)

GUSHER ALERT All over my pants and couch. Hurray... How about making a non-infected beer? Doesn’t that sound nice? Clear dark amber beer, fizzy crackling white head, little stable, non adhesive. Aroma: sweet, sugary, lots of honey, spicy, bit chemical, yeast, overripe banana. MF: soft to no carbon, medium to light body. Taste: sweet and sugary, overripe banana, bit chemical, spices, soft bitterness. Aftertaste: bitter touch, banana peel, metallic touch, watery ending, bit oxidized.

La Roche possède un très beau vieux château féodal, et au pied de ce château 2 bières distribuées par la cave du Vénitien appelées précisément les féodales. La blonde titre à 6,5 % abv. Cette blonde apparaîtra dans votre verre avec une teinte ambre moyen à roux !!! Clarté nette. Bulles moyennes à fines partout, partout. Mousse soyeuse qui nappe à 2 mm. Arômes de coriandre, houblon fin, pointe d’anis et une levure de type Orval. Texture lisse, magnifique pour une rousse. 1ère bouche de houblon fin, épices, fleurs de houblon. Arrière-bouche soft mais bien pleine. 2ème bouche avec du pain gris, du seigle, une fleur du type aubépine. 3ème bouche avec de la saveur et de la fraîcheur. Arrière-bouche agréable sur les céréales. Longueur très (trop) linéaire sur le malt et la levure. Levure assez lisse, bien faite, adéquate. Alcool surprenant pour ce niveau, correct. Finale bien équilibrée mais sans envol. Conclusion : belle bière fine, avec ce qu’il faut d’épices. Cependant la longueur et surtout la finale manquent de dynamisme et d’envol : ce qui fait perdre beaucoup de points...

@ La Roche with Benny. Served in a beautiful glass. Can’t see through the glass, so not possible to rate appearance. Malty granny aroma. Medium sparkling palate. Finish is malt granny bit bitter and dry. Flat beer.

langeveld12 (202) - NETHERLANDS - JAN 21, 2013
Pours a large frothy off-white head that fully diminished. Body is hazy and copper colored. Aroma contains citrus fruits, dough, banana, raisin and caramel. Flavor starts off quite acidic (which remains all the way), to go to sweet and to finish in bitter. Body is light and watery, with soft carbonation. Unbalanced with too much acidity and an unpleasant yeasty finish.

turbothy (1077) - Bonn, GERMANY - FEB 2, 2012
Bottle overflowed with foam when opening. What was left poured as an opaque, copper-coloured beer with large off-white head. Yeasty aroma, unsurprisingly. Flavour was decently fresh and hoppy but let down by a rather cloying bready aftertaste.

sebletitje (6582) - Enghien, BELGIUM - DEC 4, 2011
33cl BB 09/2011, ancienne étiquette. Ambrée léger, col blanc épais. Arôme de grains de brassin/vieux, fruité avec une touche de raisin blanc voire de groseilles blanches. En bouche, bière aux notes de grains, malt pale pour une fine amertume de pils. Palais présentant un léger picotement et un fruité amer en arrière goût. Houblon reste amer avec un côté citronné. Cette bière est un peu sauvée du naufrage par son profile grains. Belle déception surtout après avoir bien apprécié la version brune.

chriso (7347) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 27, 2010
Bottle @ pre-GBBF shindig, August 2009. Murky amber colour. Caramel malt is the most noticeable element in the aroma and flavour. Maybe some subtle fruity notes. Clean enough mouthfeel. Not bad but not particularly interesting.

Travlr (9998) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - JAN 3, 2010
Cloudy orange color with a small white head that disappears quickly, and leaves scant lacing. Aroma of orange peel and cinnamon. Malts dominate the flavor, but light spice is present throughout. Medium body, consistent with the style. Not a bad beer, but nothing special. The bruin is slightly better.
