Alengrin (1715) - BELGIUM - AUG 24, 2014
The dark Malheur 8, tasted from tap. Warm bronze to chocolate colour with moussy head, fruity aroma of peach, pear, pineapple, toasted bread and dark chocolate. Sweetish caramel taste, fruity, drying up towards the end and finishing in a toasted bitterishness, a bit coffee-like. Typical Scotch-style beer though Belgian brewers usually hesitate to use this obsolete term. Very decent, like all of the Malheurs.

jmgreenuk (4333) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - APR 8, 2014
Bottle at Rootz at the Harbour, Den Haag. Poured a clear light amber with a thin broken white head. The aroma is huge yeast, light malts, a little fruit and biscuit. The flavour is medium sweet light bitter with a rich yeast, malt, alcoholic liqourice palate. Medium bodied with average carbonation. An easy drinking Belgian heavy!

Bière dont j’ai grand plaisir à faire la critique, parce que le brasseur l’appelle la bière du châtelain, et que je la bois précisément dans un verre de Kasteel … Communication de pensée, quand tu nous tiens … Bière de 8% abv, ce qui est peu pour de Landtsheer, donc une blonde simple. Belle robe dorée assez foncée. Petit voile, comme une robe de mariée, donnant un très léger trouble (dans tous les sens du terme...). Bulles moyennes partout, mais plutôt au centre en une petite fontaine. Mousse blanc cassé, crémeuse, qui nappe longtemps à 4 mm. Arômes de bon houblon en 1, mais sur un fond très malté. 1ère bouche soyeuse bien houblonnée, dans le style houblon à sec. Arrière-bouche bien parfumée avec des fleurs de haie et de taillis. 2ème bouche au bel équilibre et à la texture soyeuse sur un très beau malt. 3ème bouche aux très grandes saveurs. Arrière-bouche à la fois fraîche et bien pleine, bien faite. Longueur où rien ne dépareille mais où tout s’appareille. Levure de soie de Chine, avec un lissé incomparable. La finale perd un peu en profondeur, et c’est là et seulement là que cette bière perd des points (ou des morceaux de points …). Conclusion : peu s’en est fallu que ce breuvage n’atteigne les cimes... Très grande blonde, qui plus est du chatelain … mais qui sait rester simple et proposer un très grand éventail de saveurs qui mérite notre respect. Si tous les brasseurs d’ailleurs proposaient des blondes pareilles, on serait sur une belle planète....

Bottle sample at a tasting. Thanks Vova. Hazy golden color. Fruity and alcoholic aroma. Sweet with fruity notes, yeasty and stale. I wish it was fresher.
