EddyBeer1 (1058) - Brussels, - SEP 7, 2013
Brune acajou, pétillance légère, col beige clair, fin et persistant. Maltée d’entrée, épicée mais pas trop, fruitée grâce au sirop de Herve dont la présence n’est pas du tout envahissante, ce qui lui donne une bonne douceur. Seul regret, le manque de corps...

Martinus (4285) - Baarle-Nassau, NETHERLANDS - AUG 20, 2015
Hazy reddish brown colour, beige head. Sweet aroma, pear. Quite sweet flavour, pear, syrup. Sweet finish, pear, caramel fudge. Bit too sweet for my palate, but well made and giving enough room for the Hervé pear syrup to shine through.
(from 33cL bottle @ the Grain d’Orge brewpub)

Dark red-brown colour. Aroma and flavour are both very sweet but it’s still quite palatable. Fruity, syrupy, caramel, brown sugar, malts.

blackisle (1375) - IJburg, NETHERLANDS - APR 25, 2015
Bottle 33cl. Cloudy light redbrown color, small frothy off-white head, dissipates slowly, good lacing; strong fruity aroma, pear, syrupy, candy sugar, honey, dough; taste light to medium sweet, light sour, pear; light body, watery texture, soft carbonation, aftertaste light bittersweet, bit woody, herbal notes; doesn’t feel as a strong ale more like a light fruit beer.

chromeotaphor (116) - NETHERLANDS - APR 20, 2015
Zoetig caramel peer stroopachtig aroma. Donker bruin rode kleur, met weinig carbonatie en redelijke schuimkraag (muf uiterlijk). Smaakt vrij vol en heeft een prikkelende warme afdronk (heel lichte hint van peren). Zoet prikkelend qua smaak, heel lichte fijne bittere afdronk. Zacht palet. Drinkt zich makkelijk

Alengrin (3686) - BELGIUM - AUG 27, 2014
Also tasted in the original Vervifontaine version. Powerful aroma, lots of pear from the pear syrup, chocolate, caramel, candied fruits, honey; candied fruits in the mouth on a caramelly, smooth malt base, bit resinous mouthfeel, sweet pear syrup clearly present, spicy notes, smooth finish with some warming alcohol. Nice.

33cl bottle at home. Clearish brown with a medium off-white head. Light to medium body with ditto carbonation. Sweet with herbal bitterness. Flowers, herbs, caramel, brown sugar and yeast. To herbal for my taste.
