Brasserie Sainte Hélène Reviews


SylvainCFC
Sainte Hélène Simcoe Lager 3.5
Blonde claire légèrement trouble tirant vers la blanche. Mousse de tenue moyenne instable et aérée. Nez houblonné floral et herbeux prometteur. Amertume très marquée dès l’attaque avec arômes herbeux, floral et notes de fruits (agrume). Léger grain. Carbonatation moyenne. Texture aqueuse mais riche. Bière de soif, très légère, surprenante de complexité, style American lager bien reproduit.

Sainte Hélène Barley Wine 3.5
Bottle at Moeder Lambic Fontainas. Deep orange colour. Dark fruit sweetness, caramel, malt, light hops and spice. Warming finish. Map reading and drinking don’t go well together, is what I’ve learnt..

Sainte Hélène Black Mamba 3.7
Bouteille de 33 cl. Couleur noire opaque, mousse très abondante de belle tenue. Des arômes de café légèrement acidulés, assez légère mais ce qui m’ a frappé, c ’est l’ incroyable carbonnation et texture expansive en bouche. Trouvée à la Brasserie Delneste - Froidmont.

BeerViking
Sainte Hélène Black Mamba 2.8
Bottle from Belgibeer, pours black with a huge head, light aromas of coffee and cocoa, with a faint note of banana. Dry and burnt-bitter, a bit yeasty, like a hybrid of Irish dry Stout and something, maybe Schwarzweisse?

Sainte Hélène Simcoe Lager 4.1
From a bottle. Fresh citrus aroma. hoppy, wheat. A bit of spice (pepper). White head, with a golden yellow color. Taste is lemon,, fresh with a slightly bitter finish. Quite a taste for a low ABV. Wonderfully surprising beer.

ForlornHope
Sainte Hélène Black Mamba 3.4
Bottle at home. Bit of a gusher, some lost down the sink. Pours almost purple-black and opaque with a massive rocky head. This has the unfortunate effect of damaging the aroma, but some funky hop is still there with the dark roasted grain. Bitter to taste with only a short burst of initial sweetness. Roasted malts, chocolate, slightly salty flavours with a long dry finish.

ForlornHope
Sainte Hélène Simcoe Lager 3.7
Bottle at home. Pours yellow and clear. Huge white head that threatens to overrun the glass. A huge initial release of hop aroma, as the head decreases this also fades somewhat. Slightly sweet to start then a good balance of bitterness. Good grain base, slightly dusty, sherbet lemon taste and a dry finish. Well balanced, pleasant and refreshing.

Sainte Hélène Black Mamba 3.5
Tap at Brugge beer festival 2016, Brugge, Belgium. A dark brown coloured pour with a huge beige head on top. Roasty, malty, chocolate aroma. Tastes roasty, malty, chocolate, hint of coffee. Nice one.

Alengrin
Sainte Hélène Black Mamba 3.7
Draught at BBF. Very thick and dense, creamy, nitro-tap like, lacing, yellowish beige head over a black beer with burgundy edges. Aroma of charcoal, roasted coffee beans and dito chicory, bitter chocolate, cold coffee grounds, iron, fig, dried porcini, dried tea leaves. Dry and umami onset (dried seaweed), very subtle salty touch but low in sweetness, rounded and very creamy, soft and bit thinnish body, coffee grounds bitterness, some iron but not overly metallic, peppery hop bitter touch in the end while the roasted bitterness continues. Dubbed and English style stout by the brewer but this seems closer to a classic Irish dry stout in most respects. Whatever it is though, this is convincingly Anglo-Saxon in style for a Belgian stout, have a point for that.

Sainte Hélène La Pionnier IPA 3.6
Keg at The Delirium Cafe, Brussels. Clouded gold with white head. This does start with a Belgian yeasty note, quite fruity which then develops into a hoppy, drying character. Some bitterness, some grapefruit zesty notes, good depth of flavour with a grassy note in the close. Good stuff.

Troebel donkerblond bier dat minderwaardig presenteert met brokkelig uitzicht. Jammer van het blonde label want een droge bittere smaak geeft je meer dorst.

Sainte Hélène Black Mamba 4
Donkerzwart bier met mokkakleurige plakkerige schuimkraag. Moutig aroma, gebrande koffie. Diepe volle smaak met bittere afdronk. Ondanks de 4,3 % alcohol een bier met pit, alleen misschien beetje te waterachtig.

Aroma is kind of a standard BW with caramel, toffee, raisins, bittersweet. Flavor’s like nose plus a little blast of zingy tartness in the finish that is very nice. Carbonation is just right for good body. Appearance is ok. Nice brew.

Vignale
Sainte Hélène Simcoe Lager 2.9
Flaska från Demolen beershop. Gyllenfärgad, disig, stort vitt skum som långsamt lägger sig. Doft av pommac, men också lite kartong. Lätt kropp, torr, lite äppelfruktig typ pommac. Lätt jästig smaker med en liten orenhet i bakgrunden. Trevlig men känns inte riktigt felfri och när inte hela vägen fram.

Bouteille de 33cl. Couleur dorée, mousse très correcte, tenue moyenne. Très agréablement par cette bière qui a beaucoup de saveur, une pointe aromatique de noisette et une vraie belle amertume malgré son faible degrés alcoolique. Bue pendant un repas, elle peut aussi se déguster seule. Carbinnation moyenne. Trouve à la Brasserie Delneste - Froidmont.

Sainte Hélène Simcoe Lager 3.7
From Carrefour Florenville. Lagerprésentant plus un profile Pale Ale. En effet, j’étais très surpris de goûter un corps malté très souple sans aigreur ni astringence mais doux avec beaucoup de saveur paillée fraîche légèrement friable sous la langue. J’apprécie son houblonnage bien équilibré: ici le simcoe apporte à la fois de beaux arômes fruités sur des notes d’agrumes et une gentille aigreur discrète à la fin, fort bien venue. De plus son faible ABV la rend aérienne en bouche mais sans vraie longueur. Un tout bon produit contre la soif.

Sainte Hélène Gypsy Rose 3.1
From Carrefour Florenville. Triple bien dans la tradition: fort sucrée et lourde en alcool. La mienne était plate peu d’effervescence et sans col. Son nez assez aromatique développe des senteurs de malt caramélisé suret, de sucre d’orge avec beaucoup de relents esters alcooliques et un houblon herbacé. Comme je m’y attendais la bouche est bien lourde sirupeuse, rêche aux saveurs de cuberdons avec un maltage paillé plutôt en retrait qui se termine avec un houblonnage légèrement aigre assez désaltérant. Celle-là se la joue un peu Double IPA la forte amérisation en moins.

Sainte Hélène Mistinguett 3.7
From Carrefour Florenville. Blonde classique aux saveurs céréalières qui fleure bon les près et les champs. Son nez ample très fleuri développe des senteurs de grain avec un houblon herbacé. La bouche aussi ample et souple offre une gentille rondeur qui goûte les chaumes, le grain d’orge avec de la levure épicée assez rêche au palais et argileuse laissant un grain sur la langue et qui lui confère plus un profil de Pale Ale Très sympa.

12.7 oz bottle from The Party Source. Pours a slightly hazy deep amber color with a small off white head. The aroma has caramel, dark fruits, some booze with a hint of spice. The flavor has sweet caramel malt, dark ripe fruit, booze, some mild floral character that leads to a strange finish, some wood, sticky mouthfeel but soft carbonation, just ok.

Bouteille de 33 cl. Couleur brune otangée, trouble, mousse assez faible, tenue moyenne. Au nez, c’ est plutôt caramel et épices, en bouche, on a quelque chose d’ assez fruité au début ( pêche - fruits secs), puis le caramel et enfin une pointe de réglisse; Un ensemble très agréable mais la carbonnation est un peu tristounette, un peu courte en bouche. Trouvée à la brasserie Delneste - Froidmont

Black colored, frothy tan head, nice lasting and lacing. Aroma is roasted malt, chocolate, some yeast and citrus hops, bit resin. Taste is medium to low sweet chocolate, some brown sugar, lots of coffee and some roasted malt. Quite bitter coffee dry finish and aftertaste. Medium to light bodied and average carbonation.

75cl bottle @ Shrewsbury Beer Share, Aug 15, courtesy of Mademoiselle Haddock. Pours black but gushy. Herbal plummy aroma. Quite a complex taste considering it’s just 4.3%. Grains, coffee with a big, dry tobacco finish. Not too much citra but still quite an interesting one.
