BlackHaddock (5387) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - MAY 10, 2012
From BA (Oct 2007): This was the third bottle in my collection of beers from this brewery and also the third bottle in a French beer tasting evening I had earlier in the week. A cork and caged 75cl brown bottle best before July 2008, drank in Oct 2007. Poured into my Hogaarden Grand Cru glass (twice). The first pour gave a lovely clear, golden coloured beer with a small white head. I allowed the sediment to fall into my second pour, which produced a murkey darker yellow/orange looking liquid that had a grubby cream head. The two glasses obviously gave me two vastly different tastes and it was like having two different beers, I liked them both. The clean taste of the first beer was so refreshing and the meatier second pour had such a depth of body it was great too. This breweries beers are all good, the beers are flavoursome and well made, this beer is a fine exmple of a Flanders amber beer.

Bouteille: Deep golden, cloudy, visible carbonation, big and stable off-white head, wheaty nose, traces of alcohol and bubble-gum detectable; sweet-bitter flavour with a light acidity, hardly medium bodied (6.6%?); tart and citrussy flavours in the short sweet-bitter finish.
