Countbeer (4374) - Best of E-Town mit ein Brauhaus, NETHERLANDS - AUG 11, 2014
Bottle: Served in a shaker: Medium sized vast, sticky, thick and very slow downing creamy fiam head on top of a hazy orange colored beer. Both aroma and flavour are a surprise. A top balanced mix between fruits, bitters, malts, cream, sweet wood, herbs, hops and some sweets. Top! Delicious beer and apart from the very fine balance, 9.2ABV? Wtf! Well done with hiding that one! Low carbo with a creamy mouthfeel and texture and more than just medium bodied. Delicious stuff, I’ll be checking if they got more of these left in Belgium soon! Top notch!

sebletitje (6624) - Enghien, BELGIUM - MAY 29, 2014
Bouteille 75cl. Dorée, léger orangée, col épais beige. Arôme est houblonné frais tirant sur du noble, léger malté cara et grillé avec une pointe boisée. Petit sucre résiduel sur un côté poussiéreux. Palais est malté léger sucré brun touche crystal? pour une belle note douce résiduelle finement boisée. Levure belge typique sur la fin. Note un fruité un peu fermenté rappelant abricot voire banane.

77ships (3681) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - FEB 20, 2014
#400 Belgian Strong Ale. 75 cl. bottle split by 4. Procured from Willems. Neat looking, rather elaborate label. Hazy orange amber, almost tad murky, solid off-white head. Nose is overripe dark fruits, oddly touch lactic / yoghurt, quite odd, sugar, quite yeasty, noticeable alcohol. Taste is overripe dark fruits, quite yeasty, malt rich, overripe banana, noticeable alcohol is a bit too overt, touch roast in the back but otherwise little if anything at all in the way of a barrel. Unbalanced & doesn’t entirely work. Carbonation is a touch too high. I really enjoyed their “From Hell” but this one was a bit disappointing coming down from that one expecting this one to be basically a BA “From Hell”.
