Bottle @ home (old notes). Medium carbonation. Sweet and fruity nose, light bitter finish. Alengrin (5884) - BELGIUM - JUL 12, 2014
Sampled in 2011 as "400 Quadringenti". Pale off-white, sticky head on top of a cloudy, yellow-blonde beer; aroma strongly reminiscent of banana, notes of green apples, sour cream, straw, white bread; taste soft and creamy, dryishly fruity, sweetish pils malt, aftertaste aromatically hoppy but not quite bitter enough to balance the sweetishness and therefore on the thin side. kraddel (9321) - Antwerp, BELGIUM - OCT 2, 2013

33cl Bottle @ home. Darker blond coloured beer with average carbonation and a rather small white head. Rather light aroma, with some sweeter malty hints. Full palate. Finish is herby malty sweet with some very far alcoholic hints but as short wattery hint as well. Misses some depth and character. Medium. BlackHaddock (7951) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - OCT 16, 2012
33cl Bottle,400 Quadringenti labelled, complete with sediment: brewed 09/2011, best before 12/2012. Poured into a Westvleteren chalice @ home on 15 Oct 2012.
The sediment was allowed out during my pour so the beer looked a dull, cloudy orange: the head was white, the foam and bubbles being a variety of sizes and shapes.
Floral/fruity nose, with traces of malts and yeast.
I found the taste to be semi-sour and with a moldy feel overall. Strange but not really interesting, I prefer my Belgian brews to be more powerful and stronger in alcohol. Flavour wise it lacked depth, some maltiness, yeastiness and an off fruity undertone didn’t really do it for me. Nothing wrong with it, but I couldn’t recommend it to anyone.
