COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
De Pinte werd zelfstandig op 2 juni 1868, toen het zich afscheidde van buurgemeente Nazareth. Verschillende pogingen werden ondernomen om een Pints biertje te lanceren, maar uiteindelijk heeft het meer dan 140 jaar geduurd voor De Pinte met zijn eigen Pints biertje kan pronken. Begin 2008 besloot het bestuur van De Pinte Leeft! dat het tijd werd dat er een Pints biertje beschikbaar was. Was de gemeente De Pinte zijn naam wel waard als het zelf niet eens een eigen biertje had. Al snel werden contacten gelegd met verschillende brouwerijen uit de buurt en werden proefsessies ingelast om het beste en lekkerste biertje te selecteren. Er werd geproefd, gediscussieerd, gelachen en geherproefd, en uiteindelijk werd gekozen voor brouwerij Canarus uit Gottem.

2/III/14 - 33cl bottle from De Bierloods / Zytholoog (Adegem) @ home - BB: 5/IV/14 (2014-237)

Clear dark blond beer, aery big fizzy off-white head, little stable, non adhesive. Aroma: candy, sweet, orange peel, caramel, bit oxidized, marzipan, sweet malts. MF: ok carbon, medium body. Taste: bit fruity start, lots of orange peel, bitter and hoppy, citrus, bit malty, some marzipan. Aftertaste: caramel, pretty sweet, bit sugary, little sourish, citric touch, very fruity, honey, canned peaches with syrup. I donít know why, but I love this beer. Just very well balanced and complex enough, I guess?

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!
