Ober (2812) - Bommelerwaard, - MAY 12, 2013
A clear golden colored beer, with a thick foamy white head. The aroma of fruits like citrus with some orange with hop notes. The taste is fruity like citrus a little nettle and some hop. The aftertaste is sweet with some hop notes. It’s not that hoppy as the name suggests.

Bottle. A hazy orange-golden beer with a dense, finger-thick off-white head. The aroma has some Belgian yeast, old damp cellar, some berry hints, a caramel note and some candy. It’s lightly alcoholic on the palate, full-bodied and pleasantly carbonated, but with an unpleasant, weird flavor I can’t really pin. Some cellar, quite a lot of fruityness, some pale malts and yeast. Lasting finish. Rather weird this one, although sort of nice when I had some sips. 150328

Il faut la servir très doucement car elle mousse beaucoup ; Elle est blanche est assez épaisse Elle est de couleur caramel, elle est trouble Au nez on retrouve le zeste de citron un petit peu le gingembre aussi En bouche va ressentir des notes de fruits secs,gingembre,confit de citron. Elle ne reste pas trop longtemps en bouche et l'amertume est correct. A profité d'en boire une quand l'opportunité se présente !

Alengrin (2879) - BELGIUM - AUG 21, 2014
Further building on the success of Hopus, Lefebvre made this variation in 2013 with a sixth, American hop added as well as dry-hopping applied to it. Thick, snow white, creamy head, light blond colour with greenish hue. Refined aroma of ’green’ grassy, citrussy and leafy hops, lemon, grapefruit, tonic water, caramel, mineral water, pepper, apple peel. Fresh citrussy onset, malt sweetness, round fruitiness, more and more shifting to a delicate, refined and complex hop profile, ensuring an exciting and satisfying, dry and spicy finish. Delightful.
