Sometimes you get those beers that scream belgian ale. And then there’s Gentse Strop, that just sorta mentions it. Which isn’t really a bad thing.
The nose is slightly strawy, with a bit of funk. Yeasty, some dried fruits. The smallest hint of banana. Bit herbal. Sweet.
The taste is malty, with some sugary sweetness and little bit of a bitterness in the end.
All in, not a bad beer. Also not a great one. I need to check this one out again, because I just realised this bottle is a bit out of date. Davros (3212) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - JUL 23, 2017

Crazily high carbonation. diabel (1715) - Aarschot, BELGIUM - JUL 9, 2017
Clear blond body. White frothy head. Soapy, yeasty aroma. Moderately bitter flavour. Quite unbalanced. johndoughty (5472) - cheslyn hay, West Midlands, ENGLAND - JUL 9, 2017
Bottle. Yellow with a medium head. Quite sharp slightly sour flavour. A bit acidic and not really my taste but still reasonably drinkable. hawthorne00 (3992) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - JUN 3, 2017
Bottle. Somewhat hazy gold with a thick white head that lasts OK and laces well. Floral aroma with nectarines, dough, oranges. Sweet and yeasty/ fruity with a finish that dries out a bit and is moderately bitter and herbal. A bit like an attempt at an Orval knockoff with no Brett. Quite good, refreshing.

Bweurk. Dit is een onwaarschijnlijk flauw bier, met wat hop en chemisch smakende suikers ergens halverwege. Het smaakt zoals het heet: een strop rond je nek. RW80 (2588) - Hoogeveen, NETHERLANDS - JAN 1, 2017
