Alengrin (5639) - BELGIUM - AUG 21, 2014
Commissioned by BLES and served at their Nationale Bierhappening of 2008. Spiced with no less than 14 spices selected by De Ryck’s brewmaster. Creamy, snow white head, yellowish blonde colour with faint greenish hue. Sweet and complex spiciness in the nose, obviously difficult to distinguish from one another, but I do suspect coriander, star aniseed and curaçao. Grainy, honeyish, some DMS in the aroma too, thin sweetish finish in which the spices also linger and few hops to balance the sweetness. May have been an interesting experiment with all those spices, but I didn’t care for it much. Less is more sometimes... tderoeck (10002) - Gent, BELGIUM - JAN 28, 2013

Little cloudy, pale yellow to beige beer, small off-white head, pretty stable, bit adhesive. Aroma: apples and apple sauce, some overripe fruits, bit cheesy, herbal, spices. MF: ok carbon, medium body, creamy texture. Taste: spices, apples, bit sugary, citrus, bit herbal, sweet touch. Aftertaste: bitter, somewhat sweet, sugary, spices, bit soapy. Has had it’s best time, but still drinkable.

UPDATED: MAR 28, 2009 Bottle, 6.5%. OK bready aroma. Hazy golden colour. Very small white head. The flavour is fruity with a good shot of paper. A bit of vegetable in the finish. Sounds unpleasant, but is actually just a bit boring. yespr (47077) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - MAR 20, 2009
