sebletitje (6895) - Enghien, - JUL 3, 2013
Bouteille 33cl, BB 19-12-2015. Dorée, col blanc épais crémeux. Arôme donne de belles notes d’agrumes avec ce bouquet unique mielleux sur qcq effluves de fruits fermentés. Palais restitue ici aussi le mielleux sans pour cela dominer toute la bière. Houblonné reste plus en retrait et contribue à un ajout subtile d’amertume herbacée et fruitée; agrumes. Les malts sont là mais restent en retrait.

Alengrin (2463) - BELGIUM - SEP 4, 2014
Commissioned by a cheese shop in Ghent and named after the street where this shop is located (the Lousbergskaai). Intended to accompany certain cheeses. Thick creamy head over a warm orange blonde beer; aroma of orange, grapefruit, peach, mango, bread, caramel; fruity taste, lightly sweet in onset with spicy notes and supple caramel malty basis, dryer in the finish with floral hops but some plastic-like solvents as well. I bet this indeed goes well with some mature abbey cheese.

bartlebier (1977) - Belchum im Breisgau, GERMANY - MAY 7, 2014
33cl bottle @laudable coop Eetcafé Toreke, Rabot Hood, Gent. Minimally updated typical Belgian Strong ale/tripel, at least in design and smoother yeast profile. Weighty meadow flowers, oily malts and banana/ripe apple esters. Enjoyable sipping.

77ships (4298) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - NOV 24, 2013
33 cl. bottle sampled @ Vooruit in Gent. BBF 27/08/2016. Clear golden orange with a creamy white head. Nose is very fruity, lots of sticky sweet fruits + hops mixed with lots of candy sugar, sweet flowers, sticky but not in an objectionable way. Taste is lots of sticky candy sugar, sweet white bread, orange peel, cinnamon, sticky candy sugar, dried citrus peel, fruity sugar, esters & warming in the finish. I can see the sweetness getting to much but this is a very interesting. Candy sugar body, sweetness makes this one a sipper but an interesting one.

EddyBeer1 (926) - Brussels, BELGIUM - NOV 13, 2013
Blonde dorée, effervescence quasi absente de visu, moyennement gazeuse au palais, col blanc crémeux tombe rapidement. Malts clairs bien présents laissent lentement place à une légère mais néanmoins agréable amertume ainsi qu’à quelques notes de miel et de l’un ou l’autre fruit. Yum-yummy!
