ardeo (94) - Flémalle, BELGIUM - DEC 31, 2015
Bière blonde de chez Ommegang dénommée Charles Quint / Keizer Karel et produisant une belle mousse. La bouche est agréable, pas agressive et pour cette raison, elle plait à mon épouse ! J’aime bien aussi mais n’en boirai pas tous les jours. D’ailleurs, il y a tellement de bières belges (puis les autres ensuite) à goûter que je risque de passer à côté de trésors dorés.

Hamirubi (509) - Waarschoot, BELGIUM - AUG 29, 2015
33cl bottle at the sports cafetaria in Waarschoot (29 VIII 2015). Just beautifully looking golden ale with lovely white foamy collar - long lasting too. Floral, herbs and of course malts aromas make this beer’s flavours. This looks quite promising. The body is a bit of a downer; This ale makes its power through a sharp bitter, appealing finish. The brew has features of citrus zeste, malts and some soury sweet fruits. It certainly is not very complex, but it can stand as the flagship of the Keizer Karel series.
