At Villagio Della Birra 2015.Alengrin (5629) - BELGIUM - JUL 25, 2014
Cloudy orange color, white head. Sweet, alcohol, fruity scent. Malty, Belgian sugar, alcohol taste. Alcohol aftertaste. Medium mouthfeel, medium low bitterness.
Recent beer from Boelens brewery in the Waasland region in the northeast of Flanders, with off-white, thick, mushy foam, caught in the glass after spectacular gushing; colour a misty peach blonde with vivid sparkling. Very nutty aroma with dried fruits, grapefruit, gooseberry, bourbon, jute, sour cream, green apples, leather, sweat... Taste kicks off with a sharp citrussy acidity as well as a lactic acidity probably from the infection which caused the gushing; further apply, nutty malts, but the sourness accompanies the whole palate resulting in a somewhat astringent mouthfeel, some flowery hops in the aroma but no real bitterness. Flawed and lightly infected - as I’ve experienced with most Boelens brews - and out of balance, did not enjoy this. Wolfbass (1189) - Firenze, ITALY - SEP 10, 2012
Riproposta al villaggio, non mi è dispiaciuta, anzi va giù che è una meraviglia, bene come aperitivo... ajax25g (76) - Washington DC, Washington, USA - APR 15, 2012
33cl bottle thanks to tderoeck. Bit of a gusher, pours bronze with head that disappears in 10secs. Smells of candy sugar and dark fruits. Med body with creamy mouthfeel. Tastes bready, with brown sugar and a bit of fruitiness from the yeast I believe. Not bad 77ships (10770) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - APR 15, 2012

33cl bottle. Thanks Tderoeck for the share.
Orangée, plein de bon sédiments de levure, col blanc.
Arôme est bien houblonné avec un beau bouquet fruité rappelant le frisco à l’orange.
En bouche, malté, levure belge typique, fruité et houblonné sont là les seuls vraies qualités de cette bière. Le tout est crémeux en bouche, fruité, limite tropical et un fini léger caramel. tderoeck (10002) - Gent, BELGIUM - APR 15, 2012

Note: GUSHER warning!
Cloudy red brown beer, big aery off-white head, unstable. Aroma: oranges, very fruity, sugary, bit musty. MF: low to no carbon, medium body, very creamy soft texture. Taste: bit sweet, orange, ice cream, vanilla, some spices, cloves, coriander, more vanilla. Aftertaste: sweet dough, cinnamon. Not bad at all! And yeah, I know, it’s probably because of the age, but hey, who cares, right?
Back Log: pours dirty gold with white head. Aroma of red apple and light caramel. Flavor much the same with notes of vegitable. Light, watery body. Would like to give it another shot. Dixonian (1562) - Plano, Texas, USA - FEB 29, 2012
Bottle thanks to bu11zeye.
Orangish amber brew with a slight head. Lots of sediment in the pour - nose of honey sweetness and caramel malt. Flavors of spice, sweet grain. and fruit. thirdeye11 (6162) - Dallas, Texas, USA - SEP 9, 2011
(.33L bottle thanks to bu11zeye) clearish orange with a film and ring of white bubbles. Nose of sweet grain, honey, caramel. Taste of light alcohol, gold raisins, a tad bit vinous, pears, clove, and a syrupy body. Weird umami finish.
