Bue à la pression. Couleur caramel foncé, palais sur le fruit noir malté à fond. Correcte mais sans plus.

On tap at bierhuis gent. Roady light brown though I found the finish to be a little thin and watery.

Drunk at the Waterhuis in Ghent alongside the other housebeers. The menu reads ’Full of taste and low in alcohol. Ladies...’ which I found funny. Only in Belgium would you consider 6.5% to be low in alcohol. Pours Reddish Amber with a cream head. Sweet and fruity with a thick caramel sweetness. Quite nice.

Poured reddish brown with an off white head. Aroma of caramel malt, dark fruit. Medium body, flavour as the aroma. Seemed like a weaker version of the Klokke Roeland.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
On tap at Waterhuis aan de Bierkant. Amber-ish pour with white head. Aroma is malty, doughy and bready, light fruity notes, low/absent hoppiness. Taste is sweet, malty, a bit bland really, a touch of caramel and fruity yeast. Palate is light bodied, feels a bit thin on the tongue. Kind of a watered down version of Klokke Roeland, but at least it isn’t as aggressing as the high abv beer.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Made for the Waterhuis aan de Bierkant, a renowned beer pub in Ghent and named after the Ghent story of a man being breastfed by his own daughter whilst being imprisoned in order to stay alive. Yellowish beige, stable, regular head, deep bronze colour with yellowish hue, clear. Aroma of caramel, walnut, sherry, chocolate, buttermilk, cherries, coffee grounds, elderberries. Sweet caramelly taste, smooth and resinous, liquorice, candied fruits, nutty and caramelly malts, but a bit disappointing in the finish, where only a cloying sweetness remains along with some faint floral hops - leaving a somewhat watery effect.

Ruikt droppig. Prima schuim maar niet de mooiste kleur bruin. Prikkelend en dorstlessend, niet heel speviaal
Van suus, tap in Gentse bier kroeg
