Petite prcision par rapport au classement sur le site Cette bire nest pas une abbaye double, pour 2 raisons trs simples: ce nest pas une bire dabbaye, et ce nest pas une double.... Donc je suppose que tout le monde admettra que je peux avoir raison. Je mexplique quand mme: les bires dabbaye sont des bires reconnues en Belgique, et elles sont bien listes. Donc celle-ci nest pas dans la liste, et jajoute mme quelle ne pourra jamais y tre, parce quil ny a aucune revendication du brasseur dans ce sens, ni aucune allusion dans sa bire une abbaye... Au contraire, puisque cest le beffroi de Bruges qui est dessin sur la bire, et donc rien de plus civil que cela pour une bire, et cest trs bien ainsi.... Ensuite, ce nest pas une double, mme si elle est fonce comme une double, mais cette bire par sa confection est clairement dans les bires rouge brun flamandes, qui sont leves un temps en fts de chne, dans la ligne donc de la Rodenbach, qui en est en quelque sorte le prototype. Voil pour les prcisions de dpart. Couleur donc brun fonc reflets rouges en transparence, mais quasi opaque. On peut voir quand mme les bulles moyennes assez nombreuses. Armes sur le bois, le caf avec un zeste dorange, de poivre, de la girofle, et une lgre nuance de violette. Volume soyeux. 1re bouche sur le got dune Rodenbach, dans son bois de chne, brut de ft. Suivent du torrfi, du pain grill, avec une pointe danis. La 2me bouche fait passer lanis en avant, et cest souvent le problme de ce genre de bire. La 3me monte doucement vers une fusion crales/pices., mais la dominante est toujours cre. Dans la longueur, on finit par trouver plaisir au complexe bois/anis/cret. La levure est inexistante parce quil ny a pas de refermentation. Lalcool est modeste bien sr, puisquon est 5 % abv....!!! La finale se laisse boire, mais ne transcende rien. Bire donc dans sa ligne rouge-brune trs spcifique, et donc sour ale, dont forget....

Acid303 (674) - Barcelona, CATALONIA, - MAR 6, 2013
75cl bottle. Trappist glass. Pours a red-brown colour with a medium off-white head. A lot of wine or vinegar in both aroma and taste. Too much sugary notes. So sorry, but I dont like beers like this. I prefer to drink good wine lol

Claves77 (260) - Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 3, 2013
Dark caramel color, sour smell that is slightly off from the typical Brett character. Excellent palate, with incredible smooth finish. Light tasting up front that stays even throughout. Good, but lesser option for the style.

BVery (9791) - Plymouth, Minnesota, USA - MAR 2, 2013
UPDATED: JAN 1, 2014 Tap at Bulldog in downtown Minneapolis. Kind of a sweet vinegar nose, taste isnt overly sour - slightly, but more sweet than anything. Middle of the road.

Beerdrinker79 (2084) - Idaho, USA - MAR 1, 2013
11.2 oz. bottle, PDT 1/27/11, thanks Poisneddwarf- Pours clear dark red with a head that reduces to a collar immediately. Aroma is ripe dark fruits, plum, cherries, some tartness. The taste is the same, dark fruits, plums, cherries, figs, moderately tart. This is similar to "The Duchess", although not as good! I am enjoying it though, I think the scores here are too harsh, this isnt bad, in fact it is pretty good.

11.2 oz bottle. Pours hazy brown with a thin beige head. Aroma is strong in caramel along with a little funk and raisin. Taste is sweet, tasting like a homemade caramel candy. Finishes lightly tart. Highly carbonated with a full body. Really good, but I was expecting a full-on sour.

snzcujo (282) - RUSSIA - FEB 23, 2013
Tasted from the bottle, on 22/02/2013. Pours muddy dark brown, with amazing head, with excellent retention. Aroma is full of tart berries, with a hint of candies, pleasantly spicy in the end. Taste is moderately tart upfront, with lovely fruity overtones, then a bid bready and grainy. Mouthfeel is medium bodied, low-med carb, with a good warming finish. Aftertaste is a nice mix of tartness and candy sweetness. After several sips get a feeling that it's too sweet though. Worth to try. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
