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.

Bottle. Golden colour, hazy, rocky head that does not stay long. Aroma is apricot, a bit of herbs. Light bitterness. Too high carbonation, light body. Average.

Butelka 330ml bączek pite w domu. Złote, piana dość mocna oblepia szkło.Aromat słodowy, w smaku także słody i zioła a w tle masełko niestety, pomimo to pijalne piwko.

Zilverenmaan (315) - Antwerp, BELGIUM - SEP 29, 2017
On tap. Solid, clean, nice, hoppy (slightly oily even) belgian ale with soft, lingering, bitter aftertaste. Simply decent...

JaKeAFC (1307) - ITALY - AUG 27, 2017
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.

3.6
Piepenhenrich (1285) - Steinbach, GERMANY - AUG 26, 2017
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 I need to check this one out again, because I just realised this bottle is a bit out of date.
