0.33L bottle. Pours clear amber with a huge, frothy white head with good lacing. Aromas of apple, dust, alcohol, soy sauce and sour. Initial flavor is fairly muted, some of the apple. Quickly goes to a yeast and hop bitterness. A little bubblegum flavor comes through in middle, but then finishes with a long, somewhat ascerbic herby hop bitterness. Medium-light body with a slick mouthfeel and average carbonation. Overall, not my favorit beer. Overall profile leaves much to be desired, its not very well-balanced, and the flavor of the bitterness in this beer is pretty unpleasant.

deanso (9929) - Doncaster, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - AUG 11, 2014
33cl bottle courtesy of and shared with Kermis. BAD GUSHER. Creamy white head. Cloudy amber pour. Nothing special. Marked it down due to the gushing

Als je het riekt en uitschenkt zou je het niet direct zeggen, maar dit bier heeft echt een goeie smaak.

Rating from memory, as I have tasted this in 2007 and I am not sure this is still brewed (after all, the "Fanfare Sint-Vincentius" has been in existence for 106 years now, so if Herberg still produces this, I guess they would have to change the name every year...). Thin but stable, off-white head, colour a deep brownish amber with quite conspicuous and not very attractive protein veils in the end; aroma weak, some orange, peach, toast, white pepper; taste begins with a soft fruitiness, rounded on a caramel-malt basis, typically Belgian, spicy yeast notes, end rather disappointing due to the lack of hop bitterness to balance the yeastiness.

EddyBeer1 (1058) - Brussels, BELGIUM - MAR 29, 2014
Plutt orange quambre, voile, effervescence moyenne bulles fines, col blanc fin. Les lgers malts caramel se laissent rapidement dpasser par une moyenne amertume houblonne quelque peu herbace. Manquant de subtilit, une Herberg mineure compare aux autres...
