Very good, just yellowish head, fast receding over veiled orange-golden beer. Banana- and bubblegumnose, and other yeastesters. Neutral to light-sweetish, bit toasted, to nearly roasted taste. Dried orangepeel powder, again yeasty. Feels very carbonated, CO≤ very obvious. Gives the impression of still being in fermentation, albeit in the final stages. The unique label tells us: "Anno 2008". If it were really brewed then, one probably couldnít sell it any longer. Then "De Pinte". Thatís a town in richer Gentí suburbia. Then: "Het echt Pints biertje". Wow. Thatís an outright lie. It is supposed to be brewed in Gottem, but even that is probably not true. Hijfte near Lochristi, anyone? 33cl, alcohol 7.5%. Ah, finally something positive and substantial. And then... nothing. So - next to nothing, and amongst that, even lies. Oh, yes, the cap tells us the BBDate. Hooray. And to top it all, itís not even an original beer - but a labelbeer, kind of, but we donít know from which. If itís St. Canarus tripel... see Lochristi. The beer is quite OK, but Iím disgusted all the same!
