Smoothly fruity flavor with caramely maltiness and yeast, plus - again - some vegetables, diacetyl, and ashy hints. A slightly unclean, but fruity and otherwise ok Belgian ale.

tderoeck (4371) - Gent, BELGIUM - NOV 7, 2012
25/X/2012 - 33cl bottle from Willems (Grobbendonk) @ home - BB: 14/VI/13 (2012-1175)

Clear orange to amber beer, big fluffy irregular head, pretty stable, adhesive, leaving a nice lacing in the glass. Aroma: bit fruity, lots of oranges, bit sweet, some citrus, little soapy. MF: ok carbon, medium body. Taste: orange peel, lots of it! Little bit of caramel, fudge, but not really sweet, buttered whole grain toast, some citrus. Aftertaste: citric hops, some caramel, orange peel, little bitter. Ok, but not as good as the other beers from this brewery I had before.
