Alengrin (4534) - BELGIUM - JUL 12, 2016
Commissioned by Carrefour and bought at a Carrefour supermarket in Bastogne, 75 cl with cork. Very thick, frothy, bubbly, lacing, egg-white head on top of a clear ’old gold’ coloured beer with lively sparkling. ’Cooked’ aroma revealing pasteurization, apart from soggy sugar corn, sweetbread, honey, iron, candied pineapple, apple peel, dry grass, minerals, stewed vegetables, coriander seed, plastic. Sweetish apple- and pineapple-like onset, fizzy carbo (even overcarbonated), ’dull’ sourishness but mostly a caramelly and honeyish sweetness, malty and a bit grainy, smooth, white candi sugar sweetness lingering, metallic accent, some vague grassy hop bitterishness in the end but the sweetishness prevails and the cooked vegetable-like aspect returns retronasally as well as a hint of the eternal coriander. I guess Carrefour needed its own imitation of Leffe Blonde, this is equally uninspired, overly sweet and feels almost equally industrial and ’dead’. Completely redundant and pointless blonde abbey cliché.

Ungstrup (34362) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - FEB 14, 2016
A hazy amber beer with a beige head. The aroma has notes of fruits, malt, and caramel. The flavor is sweet with notes of malt, alcohol, and straw, leading to a bitter finish.

Hamirubi (566) - Waarschoot, BELGIUM - JUN 19, 2015
33cl bottle at home. This store brand of the Carrefour chain supermarket is a modest, not complex blonde. The dark orange, even amber coloured, hazy brew has a nice yet volatile white beige foam head. A strong lager hoppyness and maltness welcomes the taster. The taste is light, refreshing, with lots of bread and maybe even grassy notes. It really resembles a - enjoyable, for sure - lager beer. The finish is stronger, sharper, yet short.

Bottle - pours yellow with a big white head. Sweet fruity yeasty and grassy aroma and taste, some sweet malt and spices and herbal notes, ok.
