Ignite your passion with this unique multigrain beer. This golden ale is brewed in the typical belgian tradition and brewer's knowledge. The golden color radiates warmth and noblesse. The recipe is based on barley, oats and wheat. Historically the combination of these three grains has proven to be the ideal one. Coriander and spice are to be found in the nose. The smooth flavour is very well balanced and combines a slight acidity with a sweet body and a subtle bitter finish. Alcohol is 7° vol.

Alengrin (4344) - BELGIUM - SEP 2, 2014
Strong witbier (’tarwedubbel’, as the Dutch would say) also using oats. Thick, yellowish white foam, hazy yellowish blonde colour. Aroma of apple, dough, wort, grapefruit peel, wheat and quite a lot of cooked cabbage (DMS). Neutral onset, pale malts with subtle wheat, sweetish fruitiness, velvety mouthfeel (oats!) and floral hoppiness in the end, but little bitterness, as expected in this style. Okay but still needs work and please get rid of the DMS.
