Bottle from Terre de Boissons Calais and drunk at home. Clear brown colour lasting beige head. Vague ester on the aroma. Some caramel. In the mouth it’s the same, some ester, some peach, some caramel. Some fruit salad on the finish. It’s simple and uncomplicated. Not great, but no bad flavours either.

Nez: Caramel, sucre candi
Bouche: Maltée, caramel, sucrée
J’ai retrouvé ça au fond de la cave. Comment ça a pu arriver là ? Aucun intérêt sauf si vous aimez le sucre candi à forte dose.

Behoorlijke schuimkraag. Bier is donkergeel van kleur. Aroma is fryitig. Bier zelf smaakt zacht en wat zoetig. Best wel ok.

One of the classic ’spéciales belges’, once a renowned brand in its own right, now one of the many InBev victims. Only purely commercial considerations will determine whether this is kept in existence or not, but in any case it has been an InBev-infected shadow of itself for many a year now. In this form, a clear amber coloured beer with decent off-white head and light (not to say thin) mouthfeel with hints of caramel, pasteurization obviously present, very light nutty touch, medium carbo and a weak touch of vaguely bitterish grassy hops hidden in the background. My father loved this in its original form, fortunately he will not be faced with this InBev ’imitation’ / abomination anymore. I wonder what the difference is with Ginder Ale and Horse Ale, if those two even still exist at all; it is an open secret that Jupiler has been sold as Safir from Aalst for quite some time by those capitalist crooks of InBev (or perhaps still Interbrew at the time) just to keep customers - I would not be surprised if something similar is going on with these three brands.

This beer has’t improved since Inbev took over. Their malts are just not as good as the ones the old brewers used. A pity, this used to be a good Belgian ale. The label is very messy, too.
