Slightly hazy and golden with a thick white head, good lacing. Bread and fruit aromas, pear, banana, a little bit of clove. Tastes slightly bready with some pear and grape sweetness from esters and a fruity, slightly spicy hop profile. Medium bodied with high carbonation. Iím confused by the low overal score of this beer. Itís a solid Belgian Pale with a weird label.

Nose is on belgian yeast and orange touch. A sweet beer with wheat like notes, astringency classic triple kind of beer, peppery hops, sweet body. Very bitter and grassy finish, still orange fruit notes

33cl bottle at home. Pale yellow/orange with a medium white soapy head. Medium body with moderate carbonation. Medium sweetness with a somewhat metallic bitter finish. Citrus, apples, yeast, straw and herbs. An ok Belgian brew.

Een prima tripel. Het is een licht smakend, niet erg uitgesproken bier. Mooie schuimkop en drinkt goed weg.

Alengrin (2355) - BELGIUM - NOV 7, 2014
Time for a re-rating of this Duvel epigone. Pours a deep golden blonde, hazy, with little visible fizz, under a creamy, thick, sticky, egg-white head consisting of smallish bubbles and showing quite remarkable retention. Aroma of raw cauliflower, very obvious iron, green apple, powder sugar, soap, peach, some sulphuric lightstruck effect (cat pee) quickly fading away as usual (fortunately), vermouth, wet hay, calvados, freshly cut grass. Taste starts with a vivid, somewhat estery fruitiness in a very subdued way, green apple and green plums, then more sourish, grainy, minerally, metallic, even a bit harsh, hard to pour down. The metallic feel lasts till deep into the finish, where the weary graininess is accompanied by a grassy and leafy, kind of dull hop bitterness and clear íjeneverí-like alcohol with warming, but also somewhat astringent effect, though admittedly itís the malt sweetness youíll remember as its last taste. It is no secret this beer began its existence darker (much more orange-coloured), yeastier and sweeter, and if you ask me, they had better kept it that way, I liked this a lot more ten years ago. This current version is just another insult to the Duvel standard, Iím afraid, like Rivaís Lucifer or Alken-Maesí Judas. Instead of trying to compete with the real thing, Roman had better gone its own way with this. Pity!

Ordinary beer. Extremely weak aroma of grain (as for Belgian beer I mean). Taste of malt and grain. Bitter aftertaste

Thereís probably other beers within this style that have more alcohol, but this one just seems the most boozy. Has all of the trademarks of the style but just isnít memorable.

White head, high carbonation. Stong malty, herbs and bitter flavour. Not so special, but definatly good.

Een bier met een goede smaak aan dat toch vlot wegdrinkt. Veel gaan dit goed vinden

33cl Bottle from Gall&Gall. Clear golden colour, white head. Aroma of fruits, esters, light floral, malts. Flavour is medium sweet, malty, cooked apples, fruits, some yeast, light metallic bitter finish. Medium-bodied. Nice enough.
