Alengrin (4820) - BELGIUM - SEP 14, 2014
Resurrection of an old-fashioned dubbel that had been extinct for a long time. Light beige, creamy but thin head, deep brownish burgundy colour, very dark but still transparent and clear. Sweet and malty aroma, chocolate, port wine, pear, cinnamon, walnuts, grass, black pepper. Sweet candied fruits in the mouth, pretty sharp carbo for this style, caramelly, nutty and chocolatey malts, light spicy hints, pleasant and well-balanced with a gentle herbal and lightly peppery hop bitterishness in the finish. Stereotypical but tasty and well made.

Thanks to bu11zeye for sharing this bottle. Red-amber pour with a white head. The aroma is full of toffee, sugar and dark fruit. The flavor is also fruity. I get some cherries and grapes as well as some brown sugar, toffee and caramel. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

Bottle, bought @ De Hopduvel, Gent. Pours light hazy red with a large, fizzy, off-white head. Aroma has caramel, yeast, light toasted, mild metallic. Medium carbonation, fine dry and fairly light mouthfeel. Flavour has caramel, toasted, toffee, raisins, soft roasted. Good malty bitterness. Sadly the carbonation is a bit excessive.

33 cl. bottle @ home. BBF 12/2014 (bit unclear). According to the bottle: Brewery De Lelie was located in Vosselaar on the Cingel next to the church. The company was founded in 1907 and taken over in 1922 by the brewer Jan Dresselaers. Latter his son Rene succeeded his father. They brewed quality beers of high fermentation of which Pater and Paus were the best known. In 1952 the production was stopped. It appears that a local VZW (same name as the previous brewery) decided to restart the production of these beers and they are being contract brewed now by Scheldebrouwerij. Pours a lightly hazy brownish amber with little beige head. Smell is sweet, toffee, caramel, quite a bit of licorice, very overripe dark fruits and a strong unpleasant low quality meat and quite a bit of soy sauce. Taste is an overwhelming bad meat, soy sauce, overripe dark fruits, malt, spices, Okay carb. & body. This is frankly unpleasant and I cannot really get over it & frankly the worst I have had within the style. Which is a real shame considering that the Paus was quite delightful maybe it is a hierarchical thing.
