20/III/2012 75cl bottle from De Hopduvel (Gent) @ Klaas’ place - BB: III/14 (2012-250)

Little cloudy orange beer, small aery off-white head, unstable. Aroma: very spicy, cloves, marzipan, sugary, orange peel, Play Dough (so, saline, I guess?). MF: good carbon, medium body. Taste: chemical, pain, orange peel, nutty, almonds, pretty spicy, mildew, cork. Aftertaste: wallnuts, herbal, little bitter, vinous, mildew. This is pretty bad.

sebletitje (9172) - Enghien, BELGIUM - SEP 27, 2011
75cl corked bottle, BB 2014, new label. Couleur orangée, col blanc moyen. Arôme, note de levure belge et signature de Vapeur avec des notes d’épices et de caramel rappelant la pomme caramélisée, qcq note de sucre roux, fruité avec pointe d’abricot et pêche. En bouche, une bière forte en alcool, mais qui ne dérange pas vraiment, reste douce avec ajout d’un sucre brun/roux, qcq épices aussi et une levure qui donne une note de cave. Malt est dans la lignée de pale ou cara/2-row avec ce côté de pomme caramel et fruit tel que l’abricot dans la levure. Je pensais plus à une bière de saison tel que on les trouve aux US donc avec un beau profile d’épices tel que la citrouille, qui ici est peut être en retrait, en fait, on déguste une bière belge forte avec des épices en plus. Au final, étiquette m’a un peu trompé car je m’attendais à une bière à la citrouille.

A cloudy amber beer. Light but very dry. Made with spices but they are very subtle. Hint of fruit and some dust. Less than inspiring!

Bottle. Clear golden with a frothy white head that slowly died. Nose of caramel, pear and spicy yeast. The flavour is caramel, spice, pear, orange and yeast. Sweet malty finish. Quite interesting. Cheers Dirk for sharing.

Pours a hazy medium orangish amber color. Aroma is lightly malty, hoppy, yeasty, with a touch of fruit. Flavor is a nice mixture of malts and fruits.
