FlacoAlto's rating

   AROMA 6/10   APPEARANCE 4/5   TASTE 6/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 12/20
FlacoAlto (4214) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - FEB 2, 2013
A steady pour into my Bruery tulip produces a fat, two-finger thick, lightly tan colored head. The beer is a concentrated, but bright, amber color that shows a clear, bright amber depth when held up to the light. The aroma smells of lightly spicy hops, lots of cracker like malt, and perhaps a touch of English biscuits. There is a light cider like fruitiness to the nose, which gets a little floral like at times.

Dry up front, but it picks up a little sweetness in the middle and finish, which brings out a cider like note. Soft, caramelized malt notes, a touch of straw like pale wheat cracker notes, perhaps hint of hop herb / spice character in the finish, but sort of a metallic note is there as well. The body is fairly light, and this is definitely effervescent.

Cider is definitely the dominant characteristic here in both the flavor and nose; not bad, but fairly lackluster.

UPDATED: JUN 25, 2017 Saison de 7,5 % abv, en format 37,5 cl avec bouchon de liège. Brassée avec malt d’orge, froment et sucre. Mon exemplaire était assez âgé. Couleur ambre roux foncé, avec un petit voile. Bulles fines, en fontaine centrale, très vives. Mousse beige, très pétillante au versage, et qui fond très vite. Arômes de malt cara, seigle, pointe d’abricot, girofle. 1ère bouche souple à l’ entame malt cara/houblons nobles. Arrière-bouche avec un côté épicé et une pointe d’acidité. 2ème sur des nuances malt/levure/fruits mûrs. Arrière-bouche avec une amertume un peu meilleure. La longueur est beaucoup plus confuse, l’harmonie est faible. Jambes huileuses, longues. Levure douce, ligne correcte. Alcool qui ne fait pas son niveau, il travaille aux saveurs mais pas à l’harmonie. Finale très lisse. CONCLUSION : bière confuse, pas très typée sur le style, et qui ne peut améliorer son image.(5/3/5/3/12)

Amber very stable head. Inviting. Cookie dough, fresh hops to balance the Belgian yeast. Very bubbly but those disappear quickly, I’m afraid. Perhaps try a bottle some time. (On tap at Cafe Belge Leuven)

Vignale (3938) - Malmö, SWEDEN - JAN 30, 2016
Flaska från Beergium. Korken kommer (som vanligt för HTD) ur flaskan med bra tryck. Bärnstensfärgade, relativt klar med högt småbubbligt skum som snart lagt sig. Söt, fruktig, lite ettrig doft med en del jäst, smågodis, söta äpplen, syltade apelsiner, söta körsbär. Söt smakbild, småbubblig i munnen, en del alkoholvärme, smak av säd, estrigt smågodis, söta småkakor, lite koriander, jäst, söt torkad frukt, mandelmassa lite kryddig beska och ganska torr eftersmak skapar en bra balans åt sötman. Trevlig vintervärmare åt det söta hållet.

orange red pour some tan head. cork shot at my face on its own. Aroma big belgian yeast, pond, barley Tastes big grain, errs sorta sweet.

ruigo (3074) - PORTUGAL - JUL 29, 2015
37.5cl bottle. Hazy reddish brown colour with a nice off-white head. Grain, barnyard, light caramel and spices in the aroma. Fizzy carbonation (the cork pop heavily) and medium body. Taste is more on the sweet side with some earthy and spicy notes. Overall, an interesting beer.

McWorta (1633) - LUXEMBOURG - JUL 14, 2015
Opalescent amber colour with a medium sized frothy off white head. Aromas of barnyard, hay, malts and hints of spice and some backline lingering fruitiness develop. Light lively with a smooth like impression and a medium body. Malty sweetness is a bit too much here with some subtle herbal spice notes too. Medium lasting finish. Lacks the light nuttiness and relies on its yeast to give the right profile.

kingstoni (2134) - FINLAND - MAY 29, 2015
Bottle. Hazy deep golden color with a medium sized foamy off-white head. Aroma of grain, yeast and apricot. Some bitterness taste. Medium body.
