COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Proud, headstrong, full of character. Charles V, Holy Roman Emperor, gave all these attributes to the rebellious Ghent “stroppendragers” or noose-wearers. And what goes for the people of Ghent also goes for this strong blonde beer. Nose/aromas: Relatively complex nose with hints of fruit (banana, citrus fruits), herbs, yeast, honey and sweet malt. Flavour: Refreshing in the mouth, pleasant sweet malty attack followed by hints of herbs and yeast, medium-long finish with subtle, slightly bitter touch.

Pours a golden beer with a good white head. Cant smell much. Taste is surprisingly good. Didnt expected that. Palate is just nice.

Bright gold color clear, compact white head, bubbly, fading, fizzy, light persistence. Aroma is sugary/candy malts, typical esters light fruity and juicy, some lemon zest, decent grassy hops. Fluffy texture loaded of CO2. Finish clean, dry, aromatic. Well structured body balanced taste, alcohol comes up early weigh a solvent action, feels like 7+. Classic belgian ale.

Good Blonde Belgian Ale, among many others, well crafted, yet not outstanding

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 I need to check this one out again, because I just realised this bottle is a bit out of date.

Pours gold with a large head. Nose shows straw, doughy wheat, light Belgian notes. Flavours include hay, spicy and grassy hops. Crazily high carbonation.

Clear blond body. White frothy head. Soapy, yeasty aroma. Moderately bitter flavour. Quite unbalanced.

Bottle. Yellow with a medium head. Quite sharp slightly sour flavour. A bit acidic and not really my taste but still reasonably drinkable.

hawthorne00 (4032) - 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.

3.2
RW80 (2630) - Hoogeveen, NETHERLANDS - JAN 1, 2017
1,5 l bottle shared. Appearance: Slightly hazy light yellow body, with a rough large bubbly head which leaves some lacing. Aroma: Cirtus, light soapy, some yeast and coriander. Taste: Light sweet,, light bitter, light malts, yeast a bit citrus,apricots and soap and some coriander.. Low carbonation, medium body. Dangerous easy drinker. Nothing rarem, harsh or offensive, simpley said a nice one espescially in big bottles to share with friends.
