Bottle @ Benzai. Clear pale yellow with a decent white head. Smells blossom, sweet, fresh, malts. Tastes malts, hops, fruity, sweet, fresh. Medium body, quite a lot of carbo but manageable.

A small taste from a friend (bottle) @ One Pint Pub. Pours cloudy golden with a high head. Aroma is sweet malts and grain. A bit like wort. Flavor is sweet malts, grains, yeast and hops. Pretty decent.

Bière dont la recette émane de la brasserie Vermeulen, fermée depuis 1978, mais ayant encore pignon sur rue à Ypres (Flandre occidentale). La bière est brassée chez de Proef (Flandre orientale), et mentionne encore le nom de Vermeulen brouwerij sur le bandeau doré de l’étiquette. Bien entendu, pour ratebeer, c’est une bière propre à de Proef … c’est normal (comme dit Julos … le chanteur et poète, pas l’empereur et batailleur …). Niveau abv de 7 %, en fermentation haute et refermentée. Mon exemplaire était à 4 mois avant sa date. Couleur doré soutenu brillant, à la clarté nette. Bulles fines par milliers partout, bien vives, comme un sapin de Noël. Mousse blanc cassé, très crémeuse, splendide texture dense. Magnifique nez de malt/houblon/épice fleurie, avec une pointe de poire et de farine. 1ère bouche souple à la superbe entame malt/houblon, avec un zeste d’orange. Arrière-bouche très équilibrée, dense, longue. 2ème avec fruits blancs, pointe mentholée, herbes, ciboulette. Arrière-bouche très fine, très agréable. 3ème avec du malt et une pointe herbacée/fleurie relevant un peu du gruut. Arrière-bouche complexe, à la très belle amertume. Longueur avec un petit fléchissement et quelques fausses notes (bizarre ..). Jambes fines, serrées, adhérentes aux parois. Levure douce, un peu boisée, ligne correcte. Alcool bien pour son niveau, il donne un équilibre de départ. Finale au meilleur niveau que la longueur. CONCLUSION : une bière au magnifique départ, qui faiblit assez sur la longueur, mais reste au final une bonne bière que n’aurait pas renié Julos (César), alias Vermeulen brouwerij ...

ForlornHope (389) - Hampshire, ENGLAND - FEB 28, 2015
33 cl bottle at home. Pours a clear blonde with a large white head which soon disappears. Very little aroma, maybe some sweet grain. Taste is initially a little sweet, with some balancing bitterness. Average carbonation with a nice chewy grain background. Overall, quite pleasant but not outstanding.

minutemat (4147) - Shrewsbury, Shropshire, ENGLAND - OCT 24, 2014
330ml bottle from Vanuxeem. Pours blonde with good white head. Floral aroma. Taste verges slightly on the sweet side for a Belgian Strong Ale with hints of vanilla and a touch of spice. Quite nice.
