Flinke volle schuimkraag en het bier heeft een mooie amberkleur. Stijlvol etiket. Lekkere zachte smaak met een lichte bittere nasmaak.

750 c&c from Star Grocery in Berkeley, CA. 8.9% ABV. Brouwerij Lupus! Label is similar to illustration, but the 9 is in the lower right corner,and the wolf is displayed against a Belgian map in the national colors. Pours a 5 finger creamy off-white head with a little orange gold liquid in the bottom of the glass. Damned if it doesn’t bear some banana and pear aromas. Nearly full bodied. Flavor seems a bit metallic, the fruit esters are present, and there’s some malt. Actually not all that sweet. Nor is it very bitter. There is bitter, but it’s not rolling over the malt. Gets fruitier with time. Light stone fruit. Not really noticing the alcohol. Except in my head. Not a top type, but a good exemplar. I’m liking it.

Bottle 33cl. Ruby coloured with a cream top which lasts a long time. Aroma has sourness but is not very special. Taste is flat at first but soon the spices, and alcohol hit in. Has a long aftertaste. Quite good.

Ligt eigenlijk in de lijn met de Wolf 8, spijtig genoeg. Dan is de wolf 7 een veel lekkerder bier.

Bottle from the Bierschuur in Poppel. The beer is amber colored and has a large creamy head, with a lot of bubbles. The aroma is fruity, with tones of bananas, caramel and a little alcohol. The taste is sweet, fresh and fruity with some fruit notes and a little alcohol. The finish is strong with some spices and a little warming alcohol with a light bitterness. A good strong ale, but not the best.

Aroma of mixed, sweet fruits and yeast. Sweet dried fruits in the flavour although it’s quite mild. Lacks depth for its 9%.

0.33L bottle. Pours a clear read with an off-white head. Aromas of alcohol, licorice and burnt sugar. Flavor goes almost immediately to hop and roasted malt bitter, lingering citrus and candi sugar. Cloying sugars sticking to the back of the throat, but surprisingly absent malt flavor. Full body with a fairly sticky mouthfeel and lively carbonation. Overall, a pretty heavy beer with some nice aromas, but flavor doesn’t really warrant the heaviness. Couldn’t drink too many of these.
