MoritzF (9759) - Ottobrunn, GERMANY - MAR 3, 2015
(bottle, 33cl) Hazy, deep golden colour with a medium-sized and slightly off-white foamy head. Mildly yeasty, bready malty aroma with sweaty, herbal hoppy notes and a restrained, if not existing fruit character. Bitter-sweet flavour, medium to full bodied with a tame carbonation. Mildly bready and slightly chalky malty base with hints of caramel and mildly fruity notes; dry-ish bitter-sweet finish with a touch of citric acidity. Drinkable, but wouldnt buy it again. 16.II.15

Alengrin (5087) - BELGIUM - JUL 30, 2014
Tripel brewed for hobby brewers De 3 Vaten from Ekeren, of which the inhabitants were once called bierpruvers (beer tasters) because several breweries used to be active there. Irregular, off-white, partially collapsing head, colour a light peach blonde, half clear with a nice central column of fine bubbles, milky after adding the yeast deposit with large protein clouds. Strong aroma with lots of fruity yeastiness and caramelly maltiness, impressions of orange, mandarin, green apple, pineapple, mango, sesame seed, fried eggs, meat broth, jute, gingerbread, parsil, rubber, cheese and sulphur. Taste kicks off with a sweetish fruitiness and subtle acidity, as well as a kind of fresh orangey taste vaguely reminiscent of freshly prepared orange juice; then quickly becoming yeasty on a mellow maltiness, proteins, soft and rounded mouthfeel, some tingy notes of gingerbread spices, so far so good. The finish, however, is rather dead, some mild leafy hoppiness quickly fading away, a bit of cloying sweetness, dusty yeast and slightly astringent alcohol - and then I forget the astringent solvents also emanating. In short: starts off okay, but anything which can go wrong in the finish, does effectively go wrong. Shame.
