3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Tasted as an old beer (dated 1987; till 1985 brewed by Du Bocq) in the Kulminator and I highly doubt if this is still made today; there was also a Cuvée de Namur Brune. Peach blonde beer with thin off-white head and fruity, sweet with clear and heavy oxidation (rusty flavour), caramel touch, thinnish body and ’empty’ finish; clearly not meant to be cellared for such a long time (but then, few beers are).

Pretty old sample Fully clear copper beer with small, just off-white head; end of bottles one heap of U.F.O.’s. Nutty, sweet, like a sweetened sherry fantasy; cherrypie. Quite sweet taste, nutty flavours, a bit fruity and flat as a pancake. Suffers from age. Ends sherry-like and sweet at the same time, fading away quicky. Medium bodied, alcoholwarming, but very flat. Well - Huyghe wasn’t meant to age - even then.

hazy, pale golden ale with an incredibly dense and frothy head. Fresh, slightly fruity nose some coriander. Also coriander in the flavour combined with yeast and sweet malt.

I had this one in Kulminator, antwerp, a very old bottle, from 1987. Blond amber coloured, still a lot of carbonation, small white head. Sweet very fruity (ripe fruits) aroma, some very light madeirisation. Smouth palate, light sprankling. Finish is a little bit more wattery and flat. Some fruity taste, with a short sour-appel touch. Misses some character near the end, but what can you expect form a beer that is almost 20 years old.

(Bottle 25 cl) Beautiful, hazy, pale golden ale with an incredibly dense and frothy head. Fresh, slightly fruity nose - I detect some coriander. Also coriander in the flavour combined with yeast and sweet malt. Pronounced dryness rather than bitterness. A lovely beer. 270499
