Hazy golden, lacing, a big white head. Nose is honeycmbs, citruses peel, floral hops and Belgian yeast. Body is full, carbon fine, texture thick. Taste is bitter. Palate is dominated by wood, green banana, citruses and Belgian yeast, pines and dandelion milk. Perfect for me, very different from other similar types by a natural wood palate and honeycombs both in noste and palate. Bitter aftertaste. B@H

Blonde de 8,5 % abv en triple houblons, dit le brasseur, et à vrai dire à 8 houblons de Poperinge, assortis d’un malt pils … Mon exemplaire était exactement à 2 ans de mise en bouteille. Couleur doré ambré, avec de la matière en suspension. Bulles moyennes, en fontaine centrale, très vives. Mousse qui devient un nappage de surface entretenu par les bulles. Arômes de malt, fleurs de houblon, abricot, pêche de vigne. 1ère bouche souple à l’entame malt pils et herbes médicinales, houblon amer. Arrière-bouche plus délicate, mais les herbes percent fortement. 2ème assez jolie, mais impression davantage herbeuse que houblonnée. Un paradoxe, vu le nombre de houblon employés !! 3ème avec une petite nuance liquoreuse, jolie mais un peu hors sujet !! Arrière-bouche plus intégrée, agréable. Longueur avec du bois, du babeurre, des fruits confits. Jambes marquées mais courtes. Levure forte, assez épicée, belle ligne. Alcool correct, il est pourtant limité dans son action. Finale assez liquoreuse. CONCLUSION : bière qui est davantage une spéciale belge qu’une houblonnée, avec l’âge peut-être, qui sait !!??

Den Tseut Beremietje Donker
The younger, dark brother of Beremietje, the house beer of the Ertvelde Biermuseum. Moussy, irregular, pale yellowish beige, slowly breaking head over a murky chestnut brown beer with mahogany hue. Aroma of caramel, candied date, ripe banana, coriander, gingerbread, brown sugar, apple sauce, stewed beef, dough, cocoa. Sweet onset with slightly sourish edge and light umami accents, lots of fig, banana and overripe peach, a bit overcarbonated to the point where it becomes slightly numbing, slick caramelly malt sweetness in the middle, light toasted accent, herbal and earthy hop bitterish touch in the end but the brown sugar sweetness overlying the whole beer sticks a bit in the throat. Quite decent actually and more interesting than its blonde counterpart thanks to the beefy, yeasty umami accent, but in all still another sweet Belgian ’caramel’ dubbel.

Mooi goudblond bier met fijne witte schuimkraag. Redelijk moutig aroma, beetje citrus. Smaken van mout, gist, hop, graan, beetje tarwe en sinaasappel(schil). Licht bittere afdronk die warm in de keel blijft hangen. Degelijk bier maar geen hoogvlieger.

Bottle bought online. Another Tseut beer, this time a classically intended Belgian honey beer. Thickly ’papery’ lacing, dense and moussy, off-white head over a peach blonde beer with salmon pinkish hue, clear but ’obscured’ by a fog of yeast particles. Aroma of lots of green banana, yellow plum, yellow raisins, honey indeed but not overpowering, biscuit, orange flesh, white pepper, mandarin, fresh peach, meringue, sweet red apple or overripe pear, apple sauce, amaretto, dough, white rum, some vague tropical flowers, cinnamon and grass. Fruity onset, very estery but not out of control, sweet banana, peach and pineapple along with a deeper gooseberry sourishness, medium to sharpish carbonation but not really ’numbing’, smooth and full malt sweetness, caramelly and bready adorned with honey sweetness and ongoing fruity esters as well as some spicy phenols, leading to a sweetish but warming finish of persisting malt sweetness, yeast bitterness, some earthy and spicy hops providing a quite long lasting, resinous bitterness and a fair amount of warming, yet ’unastringent’, white rum-like alcohol. Quite okay, this one; very cliché Belgian honey beer in the league of e.g. Barbar Blond or Bieken, but doing well in comparison with those classics. May be too sweet for some, but it does show a certain depth and I cannot find any technical flaws in the style of DMS, H2S, DMTS and the like. Sweet and anything but exciting but surely decent.

den Pim
Limitedly produced burnet beer (a herb) for art gallery manager Pim De Rudder, a local celebrity in Assenede, hence the use of the burnet herb, the Dutch name of which is pimpernel. Thanks to Craftmember for bringing me this bottle straight from said art gallery. Paradoxically, the label states on the one hand that it can be kept till 2031 if stored cool, dry and stable, and on the other hand ’beperkt houdbaar’, which means it has a limited shelf life... An apt illustration of the fact that Belgian laws regarding shelf life are unrealistic when it comes to most beers I suppose, but anyway. Medium thick, moussy, off-white head retaining well on the edges and as a thin, light greyish veil over the liquid’s surface; hazy peach blonde robe with orangey hue, turning a bit darker and even more cloudy with deposit, as can be expected - becoming completely murky in the very end (puddle water). Aroma of overripe persimmon and papaja (with the same kind of weird ’smokiness’), soapy wheat, peach, cooked chicken, stewed apple, onsetting oxidation (wet paper), sweet pickled gherkins (which could represent the burnet), iron, hints of steamed white cabbage (but not in the DMS way), sweet red curry, honey, mouldy orange, urine, cooked rhubarb with brown sugar, hint chamomille. Sweet onset, vanilla sugar or honey even, with fruity notes of overripe pear, peach and mango, soft carbo (in fact a tad undercarbonated for this particular style, in my opinion), soft gooseberry and rhubarb sourishness underneath which manages to persist till the very end; very supple, light, sweet and slick middle phase, honeyish malt sweetness accentuated by residual sugar, caramelly touch as well as soft, soapy wheat malt presence; the burnet, already a subtle aromatic herb when fresh, seems to add some retronasal nutty and floral accents. Hops are clearly reduced to a minimum, just a subtle floral effect is there, but hardly any bitterness at all to counter this honey sweetness which bothered me already from the start. The result is that a slick, resinous, cloying sweetness remains in the back of the mouth after swallowing, and even a vague echo of ’young jenever’-like alcohol can be felt, fortunately not in an astringent way. There is something urine-like in the aroma, a kind of vague, ’stinky’ sourishness amidst all the stewed fruit and rhubarb-with-sugar sweetness, and this unpleasant effect does not do this beer any good; with the head largely reduced after a while and the deposit added, it looks like some home-made pear juice, lacks body due to undercarbonation, and the taste is clearly much too sweet, teeming with unfermented sugars and insufficiently hopped even for an ordinary ’Belgian blonde’. Comes across as very amateuristic, and even though Den Tseut is a small and fairly ’unambitious’ home brewery, I had beers from them which performed a lot better. Probably past its prime, granted, but I cannot imagine this having been a great beer to begin with. Funny label with Pim’s face on it and all those fake hop variety names, though...

33cl bottle@Het Vermaek, Slenne 2016. - Bref: Pours, smells and tastes like a rougher, both yeast- and hop-bitter version of regional classic Augustijn Blond. - Dirty orangebeige pour - the cartoon pig straight from the 80s does not help much to elevate this beer’s aura beyond the pigsty & stable. - Green, almost white-peppery "wet" hops in aroma, then intimations of something fruitier soon overshadowed by wet yeast fumes. Dials back the honeysweet speciality malts of a traditional Belgian blond recipe (Augustijn, Ename) to substitute with deft earthy EU hop bite that falls on a rougher, yeast-laden mouthfeel and somehow lacks structure.

Thank you! Sampled 330 ml. bottle @ Kerstbierfestival Essen 2015. Bottled during October 2015 according to the booklet. Very hazy brown, little head. Nose is alcoholic sweet dough, sugar, esters, yeast, candy. Taste is yeasty, basic sweet sugar, dough, lots of sweet dough, light candy, basic brown & dash of exotic sugar. Doughy & yeasty body. Very similar akin to basic sweet dough, okay but nothing that excel. Agreeable basic overly typical brew.

Tseut’s contribution to the ’tripel hop’ trend in Belgium, found in an otherwise unremarkable drinks center, thanks to Tamara for the tip. Thick and frothy, beaten egg-like, papery lacing, irregular head over a hazy peach blonde beer with strong fizz; clouded with deposit. Aroma of banana flavoured bubblegum, apple peel, dry straw, dried flowers, canned peach, raw rhubarb, gooseberry, pineapple, hint of cooked cabbage (DMS) but faint enough not to disturb too much. Estery onset, banana, pineapple, gooseberry, sweetish and sourish, fairly strong carbo, grainy and lightly bready malt backbone, bit cereal-like, ending in a grassy and earthy ’Euro’ hop bitterness, drying and bittering but certainly not thoroughly so; maltiness keeps prevailing and yeasty accents add some undisturbing phenols. Typical Belgian tripel, not bad and technically decent, but frankly a bit boring and unnecessary; based on the name and the usage of eight hop varieties, I expected something way more hoppy as well.

33cl bottle at Huisbrouwerij Den Tseut, Oosteeklo (30 VIII 2015). This brew is very similar to the ’t Wijveke beer, but it is made sweeter. The beer is hazy and dark yellow, beige to orange, with almost no collar. The aromas are build up around the dough, yeast and malts, adding classic earth and dust flavours to the brew. They already hint at a lingering sweetness. The taste has this honeylike sugarness which isn’t that sharp, yet it feels very omnipresent. This adds a numbing sweetness to the beer - not that pleasant for my taste. I prefer ’t Wijveke, the newest brew of Huisbrouwerij Den Tseut.

33cl bottle at pop-up bar ’Victor De Sutter Estaminet’ in Oosteeklo, Oosteeklo-Dorp 94 (30 VIII 2015). Soon to be commercialised, this beer was tasted by the visitors of the war town reenactment in Oosteeklo in the last weekend of August 2015. Although this brew was already depleted at homebase Huisbrouwerij Den Tseut, it was still available in other pop-up pubs down the street. The yeasty and malts aromas have a nose with pronounced dirt, dust and earthlike features. The nose has sweetish fruit hints too. The taste is well balanced, with a naturally feeling maltness and bitterness. The ending is low to medium sweet, with a certain dryness. The overall impression is not bad.

TASTE: rather sweet, weird somewhat malt aftertaste, the weird kind of taste probably is due to the pumpkin? Weird but not bad, would drink again though...

Bouteille de 33cl gracieusement offerte par JorisPPattyn, no BB. De couleur orangée/dorée sur un voile trouble. Cette denrière laisse un col blanc assez fin. Arôme reste malheureusement fort centré sur une approche belge. Retrouve une pointe de végétal avec en rétro un aspect purée - de citrouille et un bouquet modéré rappelant les épices de fêtes. Les houblons semblent être trop discret. Palais reste dans un style levure belge, amertume houblonnée perce un peu plus, tirant sur un style noble Saaz, Tett. Le palais est épais et confirme cette impression de purée qui se notait à l’arôme. Retrouve un malté tirant plus sur un carapils, léger pâle - Weyermann et une finalité de grains. Un essai vaillant, mais qui pâle à comparaison avec une Pumking de SouthernTier.

Small off-white head over hazy, well-carbonated, dull orange beer. End of bottle solid yeast. Spicy yeast nose, bit vegetable - the pumpkin, no doubt. Again spicy, other grains, peppery, ginger-like... but also coriander-like; faint citrus, yeast. Spritzy MF. If it weren’t for the specific spiceflavours, it could be refreshing. Light body, gristlike slickness, faint alcoholsweetness. Not bad, just... a bit too "interesting". And I fear I’m actually loathing spelt...

The house beer at De Bierkamer, a young beer pub in the fields of Ertvelde, and named after the owner’s son, apparently. Made with no less than five different hop varieties (Fuggles, Amarillo, Styrian, Cascade and Challenger). Thick, off-white head, hazy amber colour. Strong green hops in the nose, chamomille, orange peel, bitter honey, red apples, caramel. Soft and refreshing orange-like onset, some apple and pineapple sweetishness, caramelly maltiness, yeasty and nicely evolving into an assertive, peppery, long, pretty complex, dry hop bitter finish. I’d say this qualifies as an IPA. Recommended, as well as the pub itself.

33cl bottle@De Bierkamer, Kluizen-Evergem 08/2014. Nice original glassware. - Unassuming, more bitter- than aromahopped dry & yet yeasty Belgian ale, subjugating Amarillo and Fuggles, among 3 others, to the chalky regimes of a Belgian yeast. Grasses and quality crackers over some citrus rind. Makes a convincing, round, near-refreshing and purposefully designed impression nevertheless, down to its dry aftertaste. Still cannot help thinking that some of that aroma hop goodness has been buried beneath. Will be trying newer batches with interest.
