Cette bire nest pas du tout une double, mais une "sour red/brown" et trs bien spcifi sur ltiquette par le brasseur. Jai dailleurs envoy une correction au site, nous verrons le rsultat Prcise aussi "sans stabilisateurs, conservateurs et sulfites" .. cest gentil pour nous!! Niveau abv de 8,2 %. Couleur brun roux, comme il se doit, et roux en transparence, la clart nette. Bulles assez grosses, mais trs nombreuses et trs vives. Mousse brun clair, un peu noisette, trs crmeuse, stable 6 mm. Superbe mousse. Armes de foudre de chne, baies noires, malt torrfi, pointe de guignolet. 1re bouche veloute, la grande vague de chne, noix, tourbe. Arrire-bouche trs large, avec des pointes vineuses, tanniques. 2me la superbe texture, et du chne en diable, pointe de cerises noires. Arrire-bouche dense, homogne, longue. 3me avec bois/cerises/ft, dont le trio se renforce et sembellit. Arrire-bouche superbe. Longueur avec grande ampleur, trs belles saveurs, texture restant veloute, du vin, des baies, pointe de trfle. Jambes serres, groupes, denses. Levure douce, fine, boise, belle ligne. Alcool trs correct, il soutient les saveurs et la cohsion. Finale qui trouve un peu de whisky. CONCLUSION: cette bire est une remarquable red/brown, avec une pointe dacidit comme le veut le genre, mais trs bien assimile. Elle est remarquable de texture, et les saveurs sont profondes. Elles rejoint ainsi ses petites surs, les Ichtegem grand cru, Verhaeghe vichtenaar et Petrus aged red, mais reste sous la Duchesse de Verhaeghe et la Petrus oud bruin. Ceci dit, le match est serr et pour la dfense de celle-ci, il faut signaler quelle existe dans une version "oak aged" .. certainement tester.

Alengrin (5112) - BELGIUM - NOV 10, 2014
One of the two beers launched when this micro brewery in Sinaai next to Sint-Niklaas in the Waasland region started up (in 2011). Thick, yellowish white head, deep orangey peach blonde colour, cloudy. Refreshing aroma of coriander, peach, lemon juice, walnuts, caramel, jute. Caramelly main taste, sweetish and a bit nutty, dried fruitiness, subtle dry-hopping, grassy bitterish finish, spiciness, aromatic. Lacked some body to my taste.

Mainuh_man (291) - NETHERLANDS - OCT 18, 2014
0.33L bottle. Pours clear, dark brown with a tan head that dissipates quickly. Smells a lot like flemish bruin ales: sour cherry, soy sauce, basement aromas. Interesting flavor profile. Lots of sour cherry right up front, then some smokiness followed by burnt tire. Long, dry, sour linger with some vanilla woodiness coming through. Medium body with a slick mouthfeel and mild carbonation. Overall, some interesting aromas, but flavor profile is pretty unpleasant.

More a sour? Dark amber and almost clear. Has an off-white head, medium duration. Sweet, acidic aroma, some fruity notes. Faint acedic. Flavor starts sweet, sugar, dark sugars and more acidic notes. Faint bitter finish.

Een donker bier moet veel meer smaak hebben voor mij dan dat hier het geval is.

Brune rougetre, effervescence faible, col beige fin. Malts lgrement torrfis, fruite raisins, lgrement boise, un peu vineuse, petite amertume sur la fin, ABV bien masqu, fait un penser une vieille brune.
