Vignale (2034) - Malmö, SWEDEN - AUG 29, 2014
Flaska från Etre gourmet. Gyllenfärgad, disig, högt vitt bestående skum. Frisk kryddig och örtig doft med mycket jäst, hö, torkade blommor och lite tvål. Stiltypisk och karaktärsfull. Rejäl örtig beska, pepprig och kryddig, frisk, tydlig jästsmak lite fruktig med torkade äpplen och päron. Lång relativt besk eftersmak. Jag tycker nog att det här är bryggeriets mest lyckade.

De un color cobrizo pálido, algo velada. Espuma blanca con pequeñas burbujas y retención media. Suave aroma a pan, levadura y algo de melocotón. Oleosa y con buen cuerpo. En boca suave, de nuevo la levadura y un final ligeramente seco. Correcta.

Alengrin (1296) - BELGIUM - AUG 23, 2014
The first Viven beer, dating from 1999, so from before the brand was relaunched in 2006. Golden blonde ale with a thick, rocky, snow white head and subdued fruity and malt sweetish character, some herbal hops in the finish. Okay for quenching the thirst on an outdoors café but lacking personality, this was nothing compared to what the renewed Viven brand has to offer these days. Maybe this one has improved since then, so I should re-rate this soon.

Een blond bier met een wat speciale smaak, alhoewel het niet echt mijn ding was, vond ik het ook niet heel slecht

Poured hazy straw with a frothy off white head. Aroma of fruity and floral hops, caramel malt. Medium body, flavour is medium sweet, lightly bitter.

Pours a cloudy light yellow colour. Subtle aroma, quite fruity. Tangy slightly sour taste. Very refreshing.

Good Belgian blond beer. Very yeasty and fruity, with some aroma hopping. Does not have the artificial taste these beers often have nowadays.

Bottle thnx to Viven Pours clear blonde, good to small white head . Smell is sweet maltyness Nice amount of bitterness in the taste, as well as a dry, almost buttery grainy character . Not nearly as sweet as expected . Nothing to special though .

A blond I actually enjoy. Beautiful head and for a blonde great palate as well. Quite sweet, almost honey like. Certainly not as good as the other Viven beers though. Tap at Charlies in Hoorn.

Avec "vraie bière flamande", j’attendais plus de caractère. Belle mousse persistante, qui tient au verre. Bulles fines. Pas désagréable, ni extraordinaire.
