Belgian-style barley wine from Het Alternatief, an amber coloured ale with caramelly and honeyish character, some coriander and a somewhat vinous mouthfeel with warming alcohol in the finish along with herbal hops.

Bire ambre artisanale du hobbybrewer Piet Salomez, quil dfinit comme une original belgian ale, donc peut-tre une spciale, si on lit entre les lignes... Pour ratebeer, comme elle titre 9 % abv, cest videmment une belgian strong ale... On connat la chanson!! Pour nous donc, soit une ambre forte, soit une spciale belge ... Couleur ambre roux abricot, avec un voile de matire. Bulles fines en colonne centrale. Mousse blanche avec texture uf battu en haut, puis nappage crmeux 3mm. Armes de poire, pomme mre, abricot, malt grill et caramel, pointe de muscade et spculoos. 1re bouche soyeuse veloute, avec une entre en matire dense, sur le malt caramel et du pain dpices. Arrire-bouche pleine, riche dautres nuances dont du pain complet et de la rglisse. 2me bouche la texture veloute, pleine, aux saveurs fondues. Grand quilibre malt/houblon. 3me bouche trs agrable sur malt et rglisse. Arrire-bouche sur le malt cara, un rien trop sucre. La longueur donne douceur, quilibre, et des nuances assez exotiques certains moments (do lappellation de original ale par le brasseur). La levure est douce, fine, sans aucune agressivit. Belle. Lalcool est bien progressif, efficace, mais question: naccrot-il pas le sucr? La finale est un rien trop sucre pour le genre. CONCLUSION: bire trs agrable, mais la finale est un peu monocorde et pour moi un rien trop sucre. Pour une fois, je dois admettre que la mme bire 8 % abv au lieu de 9 serait peut-tre mieux!!

Amber with a beige head. Nose. Malt, hop, sugar, caramel. Taste. Malt, hop, hop bitterness, some hidden cookies-sugar-sweet. Bit dry, some spices in the back. Bitter, even subtile bitter. Overall, good well balanced brew. I even like this, well made.

Douberd (5167) - Arnhem, NETHERLANDS - JUN 23, 2014
Stubby bottle 330 ml at home, poured into a tulip glass. ABV 9% Very dark orange colour on the body, with a small froathy off-white head, with low retention, leaving minimal lacing on the glass. Aroma of yeast, funk, fruity notes, grapes, cork. Taste is quite bitter from the start, although some sweet malts can be found too, along with yeast and some peaches. Well hidden alcohol, in fact, I doubt this is 9% alcohol as it doesnt seem to have the kick. Medium thin body, abit low on the carbonation. Overall okay belgian ale.

Bitter and hoppy version of a Belgian amber beer. Quite nice, but remains a bit flat.

henkjanwiegers (120) - NETHERLANDS - JAN 21, 2014
Pours an orange to copper color with an off-white head. Aroma is yeast, flowery and hoppy. Taste is sweet, then grassy hop followed by alcohol. The aftertaste is also grassy and full of alcohol, then a little citrus. OK beer.

BlackHaddock (6629) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - JUN 27, 2013
33cl Bottle at De Bierboom, Brugge on 17 Dec 2012. Hazy golden body with a good, full head of off-white of deep foam. Yeasty nose with a caramel hint, there was also a tart, almost sour aroma from the brew. The taste was a mixed bag as well: sweet and sour feel throughout, with a semi-sweet maltiness just about hiding the other flavours. Solid if not special.
