Brown colour, beige foam. Medium carbonation. Aroma of light roasted malts, caramel and dark fruit. Medium sweet, some bitterness. Good beer.

Alengrin (2085) - BELGIUM - SEP 29, 2014
Potters’ beer supposed to be served in a stone jar, but I pour it into a trappist chalice since I hate being served beer of which I cannot see the colour. Yellow beige, dense, sticky head over a dark brown beer with reddish hue, lightly hazy. Fruity aroma with lots of deep maltiness, floral hops, plums, banana, pear, chocolate, butterscotch, dark candi sugar, brambleberries, candied dates; sweet caramelly taste with dark fruits, apple, banana, full and agreeable maltiness, soft, light sourish touch and liquorice, delicate carbonation, bitterish finish with peppery hops and a subtle roasted accent (coffee) as well as warming, but nowhere disturbing alcohol. I enjoyed this very much and as I stated in my rating of Pater Van Damme, I am convinced the latter was an alias of this, at least ten years ago when I tasted both of them side by side and could not find any difference whatsoever.

Excalibur123 (153) - Soria, SPAIN - SEP 22, 2014
Presenta color marrón oscuro con excesiva capa de espuma que no deja servirse bien en la copa, manteniendo una fina capa al final; aromas a caramelo, malta tostada, frutos rojos y especias; en boca entrada picante y maltosa con notas a miel y vainilla; cuerpo y carbónico medios en una cerveza ale que peca en exceso de especias pero se bebe fácilmente.

Bottle in my used-to-be-clean living room. Are you kidding me ???? This bitch even gushes more than their damn ’maeght van gottem ’ . And this time, lets not blame a Hopcone ( that should not be in a bottle of beer anyways , since it’s a clear invitation for infections and have been proven to cause some serious gushing ) no, this is just a proof of a bad quality in the beer, somewhere . After cleaning up the floor and couch ( thnx for that guys ) The foam had disapeared . Zero resistancy, even though the pour took 2 glasses for half the bottle ( that, BTW, kept gushing ) Smell is metallic and grainy-sweetness, as well as sugar . Overcarbonated . Taste is straight sugar - caramelly . Some earthy undertone, some bitterness . Tastewise, i’d say I like this . Even to the point of ’I really like this ’ . But lets be honoust here . Overcarbonated, simple, yet still not even free of brewing mistakes ( too much sugar in refermentation ? ) ... Its a yummy beer , with bad quality . And how the hell can I rate it high if it has low quality ? ___ otherwise, the score would be about 3,8-3,9 / 5 ___

33cl flesje bij café De Gouverneur Alcoholpercentage van 8% Uitgeschonken in Tripel Karmeliet glas Uiterlijk: lichtbruine kleur met flinke witte schuimkraag. Idem als de Maeght van Gottem een flinke 'gusher'. Aroma en smaak: caramel, zoet, koekjesdeeg, bittertje Conclusie: lekker licht donker bier, moet ervan houden. Maar is wel lekker hoor. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Een bier dat er goed uitziet en lekker ruikt, maar de smaak is iets te flets naar mijn zin.

stevoj (2240) - Boise, Idaho, USA - JUL 14, 2014
Wonderful beer. Pours cloudy brown with suspended sediment, airy beige head and sticky lacing. Light sour, yeasty aroma, taste is straight up yeast, with some mellow lingering sourness. A real beauty of a beer.

fhoublon (316) - Lachine, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 28, 2014
Bouteille de 330 ml dégustée à l’Auberge des douceurs belges à Québec le 9 septembre 2009. Bière brune légèrement trouble. Col épais persistant. Odeur de cerises marasquin, un peu aigre. Très douce, très sucrée, très peu amère. Goût un peu aigre, de céréales sucrées, de cerises. Très bonne mais manque un peu de distinction. Trop uniforme, un peu lourde dans l’ensemble.

TYpical strong Belgian blond beer. Grainy, fruity and yeasty of course. Has some herbs as well.
