COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A peine servie elle développe dans le verre un arome puissant de houblon herbacé. L’amertume plus prononcée est sa caractéristique principale. L’usage d’un houblon noble, le Saaz, lui confère pourtant une amertume peu agressive. La bière est sèche en bouche, servie bien fraiche elle est très rafraichissante.

clear orange, slight yeasty in aroma, taste very very bitter. I had it in Delirium Café in later hours, therefore I might have missed something ;)

75cl bottle from Cora Messancy Belgium - opened at home. Pours light yellow semi-hazy with very small head. Hoppy scent with lemon. Taste likewise with fresh hops and lemon/citrus, good carbonation. Very refreshing when chilled in fridge. Nice beer not too strong for a Belgian (5.5%)

Alengrin (2425) - BELGIUM - AUG 27, 2014
Blonde session ale with sensual label but rather neutral aroma of grassy hops, lemon zest, sour apple, hay and young cheese; restrained fruity taste, smooth and light in the malt department, some spicy notes, pretty long bitter finish - but I doubt if this should be classified as an English-style bitter, as has apparently been done here.

Vignale (2172) - Malmö, SWEDEN - AUG 5, 2014
Flaska från Etre Gourmet. Söt mustig doft med jäst och en lätt parfymig doft väldigt lik knoppande kastanj. En annorlunda kombo av brittisk bitter med bra maltkropp med viss sötma, nötter, kastanj och gräsig örtig beska och belgisk jäst. Det funkar i a f för mig och skapar en annorlunda och intresant smakbild.s

330 mml bottle tasted on 28/06/2014. The hops predominance this beer in the aroma and the taste. Carbonation is Ok and aftertaste is a little bitter but nice. Next one please!

ThirstyBird (1695) - Düsseldorf, GERMANY - MAR 21, 2014
Thanks to Sebletitje @ RBBSG II. Pours a bright yellow with some suspended particles and a white head that falls to a blanket. Nice lacing. The smell is tart fruity hops, mild malt. The taste is hoppy, tart fruit, citrus with a dry slightly bitter aftertaste. Subtle soft, wonderful carbonation and light body.
