Huisbrouwerij Den Tseut Reviews

’t Zeemken 3
Bottle at home, featuring a really nice picture of a happy three-legged pig with some bees flying around on the label. The beer itself is a hazy amber with a big off white head. Aroma is Belgian yeast, herbal notes, a little floral, sweet malt, light banana and light fruits. Flavour is moderate sweet and bitter. Medium bodied with some alcohol warmth in the finish and moderate carbonation.

Den Drupneuze 4.2
Bruin bier met romige witte schuimkraag. Moutig aroma. Ook nog geuren van bruine suiker, beetje toffee. Smaken van mout, kaneel, kandijsuiker, beetje anijs, beetje speculaas. Lekker winterbiertje met lange, warme afdronk.

Den Drupneuze 3.5
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.

Hoppesnoet 3.2
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.

’t Zeemken 2.7
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.

‘t Wijveke 2.9
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.

Pompoentripel 3.3
33cl bottle. APPEARANCE: light clouded blond beer, nice stable white head. NOSE: caramel, some alcohol, reminds me of certain cookies... Also some reminder of the Chimay Brulé? 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...

Pompoentripel 3
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.

A decent beer with some citrus flavours. A golden colour fills the glass, though the head is a bit vague. The body is light to medium - yet the alcohol value counts eight percent. A fine ending, but nothing spectacular.

Den Tseut 2.8
7th Feb 2015: Brugge Beer Festival, poured from a bottle. Light amber, hazy golden colour, white topping. Nice enough blend but not a lot going on really in either the aroma or taste. Leaning towards a ’Pilsner with a difference’ in flavour and looks. Semi-sweet and mildly malty, just lacked oomph!

Pompoentripel 3.2
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.

Den Drupneuze 3.1
Winter ale with stable, snow white, sticky head and hazy amber colour with ochre glow. Aroma of orange peel, sweet peppermints, gingerbread, mango, cinnamon. Sweet spicy taste (liquorice, mint, aniseed) as expected from the aroma, candied orange, low carbonation resulting in a somewhat ’flat’ mouthfeel, caramelly malt base, finishing faintly flowery hoppy, not bitter, a bit bland, ingloriously fading away without grande finale. Something is missing here - more hops please!

First beer of this brewery, since 2008. Snow white, irregular, quite stable head, yellowish ochre blonde colour, cloudy. Strong orange aroma, some peach, wheaty sourishness, pineapple, white bread, straw, grass; soft sweetish taste with fresh orange touch, smooth sweetish maltiness, medium carbonation, vague presence of wheaty sourness, light spicy yeastiness, finish sweetish with only a presumtion of grassy hoppiness, no real bitterness (enough).

Den Tseut’s second, since 2008. Off-white, irregular head, bronzy amber colour, misty. Aroma of caramel, apricot, honey, pineapple, toasted bread. Fruity taste with some citrus, caramel- and bit honey-like malts, mellow, sweetish, light herbal hoppiness in the finish, bit thin, some sweetness lingering. Neither good nor bad.

Den Bier 3.4
Tripel from the Meetjesland region since 2009, with thin, cream white head and cloudy peach blonde colour. Aroma dominated by a sweet-spicy cinnamon effect, pear, grass, bread, ’speculaas’, vanilla, apple sauce, field flowers. Sweet fruity taste of pear and apricot, gingerbread-like cinnamon quickly appearing, some yeasty spiciness, caramel malt base with light nutty flavour, finish unfortunately with badly hidden, nearly acerb alcohol.

Belle Cies 3.2
Heavy tripel from this young ’Meetjeslandic’ brewery, with a thick, creamy head and cloudy yellowish blonde colour. Bit sweaty, grainy aroma, bready yeast, straw, cooked potato, unripe fruits, gin-like alcohol. Subdued fruitiness in the taste, apricots, soft mouthfeel, mellow maltiness, finish flowery hoppy, not really bitter but just a tad astringent with ’jenever’-like alcohol. A little bit too strong for what it pretends to be, I’m afraid.

Idiosynkrasie
Den Drupneuze 2.5
330ml bottle. Clear, dark amber colour with huge, foamy, half-way lasting, off-white head, no lacings. Bready malty, fruity aroma, hints of peach, red berries, a yeasty/alcoholic/herbal twinge, dry hoppy overtones. Taste is sweet, bready malty extremely phenolic, fruity, biting and burning alcohol, malty finish has hints of sweet bread and almond biscuit. Conciliatory finish, nevertheless one of these sweet, phenolic, Belgian guck beers, if not in maximum abhorrent execution - this style is and remains a grab bag.
