Alengrin (2351) - BELGIUM - SEP 20, 2014
Abbey beer since 1988, with a thick, sticky, cream white, dense head, relatively stable in relation to the ABV; colour warm orange blond, clear with hardly any visible fizz, hazy with deposit. Sweet fruity aroma of orange liqueur, pineapple, gin, overripe peaches, honey, cloves, rose petals, wodka, toasted bread. Sweet onset, candied orange, banana, mango, smooth and supple palate with medium carbo, minerals, fresh sourish touch, soft caramelly and bready malts, finish with a grassy hop bitterness but especially a strong, warming, gin-like alcohol effect which even becomes a bit wry. Would have been a lot better with better hidden alcohol and more hops, now the sweetness cloys a bit too much and the end is too alcoholic for my taste. Still a lot more ’honest’ than its Leffe or Grimbergen counterparts.

A malty and soothing aroma, with a nice colour and foam top. tinteling on the tongue, with a lovely bit of sweetness and alcohol.

Aroma is sweet. You feel the alcohol in a really god way. Its herbal, floral and balanced throughout and bitter in the end. A quality beer, without a doubt.

Orange clear beer with big white head. Aroma has Belgian yeast, apricot, honey, clove and ripe banana. Flavor is yeasty, fruity and sweet. Palate is quite full and foamy in the mouth. Finish has mild bitterness with aftertastes of alcohol, yeast, spices, fruits and port wine. Quite decent tripel with too much alcohol, nothing special.

Bottle from Carrefour, Nice. Hazy amber-brown with some bubbles for an extremely small head, and a small carbonation. Fairly strong tasting, which subdues some of the potential flavour. There’s a small sweetness in the nose and taste.

This is one of the best beers available on the market on just about every level. I prefer the No. 8 offering called Brune/Bruin due to my taste for darker beers, but this is my favorite triple.

Pours a clear orange with a white lasting creamy white head that easily is recreated when swirled. Aroma of orange and banana with a little perfume like roses and nutty and alcohol. Taste is slightly sweet. Palate is medium body,creamy texture, with a long finish. This is an excellent beer, I think my favorite triple.

La bière est livrée dans Une bouteille à la forme quelque originale. De couleur dorée et légèrement trouble, cette bière présente une mousse plutôt légère qui disparaît assez rapidement. Le fort degré alcoolique (10%) procure un goût puissant en bouche avec une note fraîche et acidulée d'agrume. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Cor caramelo, com espuma creme pouco persistente. Aroma frutado e de lúpulo, adocicado. Sabor cítrico, ácido, especiarias, álcool perceptível, encorpada, seca, com retrogosto suave. Muito boa.
