bartlebier (4013) - Belchium im Biersgau, GERMANY - FEB 3, 2017
33cl bb11/2017, new edition as "609 Wuitensbier" at still 8%: brewed by Van den Bossche (pater
Iieven.be). Still a Tripel... - Fizzy beigish tangerine. Coarse unripe peacher stored in a wet cardboard box. Starches in aroma. Unripe fruity esters locked inside themselves along with a full cupboard of refined white sugars. Distincly undistinct and alias-like. Belgian tripel brewing 80s style...fits the Wuitens bill: cheap and quick boozer to make Hamse karnaval palatable. Alengrin (5431) - BELGIUM - NOV 9, 2014
Regional beer taken over from Villers when it ceased brewing in 1998 and apparently referring to the village of Hamme, the inhabitants of which are nicknamed "Wuiten". Beige, sticky head over a copper coloured beer, surely too dark to be called a genuine tripel; in fact this is even closer to a dubbel. Fruity and estery nose, sweetish, malty taste, light, with dryish finish of a mild herbal hop bitterness. Decent but nothing to hunt for - or to even remember.

I don’t know where I got this bottle from. I think it’s made for some kind of festival at Hamme, but I’m not sure about that. 33cl bottle at home. Pours out golden, lightly orange coloured. 609 in biggest letters at the etiket, "Wuitensbier" some smaller. Some kind of "shield" at the middle. At the back it say "Tripel bier", so added the beer under that style. Small to medium head, only the last part seems to hold, so won’t hold good. Sour-sweet, a bit earthy smell. Lots of spices inside. The smell is better then expected. The taste is a bit like pilsener. Warming, and some more body, but the spices and sourness makes the taste a bit like pils. It’s a bit sweet also, a pretty dry finish. It’s not bad, but a bit simple. But better balanced then expected for a unknown beer.
