CampbellWilson (533) - - JAN 7, 2006
Bottle from Beers of Europe. Dark orange with thin diminishing head. Aroma of citrus hop, spice, caramel. Medium body with a bit of sweetness in the mouth, but finish is dry. Better than I expected. A refreshing if unspectacular beer.

27/XII/15 - 37.5cl bottle @ Huyze Vacas (Waterland-Oudeman) - BB: n/a, 2007 vintage (2015-1815)

Clear amber beer, small creamy irregular off-white head, unstable, bit adhesive. Aroma: caramel, malty, orange peel, pretty oxidized, bit spicy. MF: ok carbon, medium body. Taste: pretty oxidized, sweet, lots and lots of caramel, spicy, some cinnamon even. Aftertaste: malty, caramel, floral touch, honey, bit sweet, oxidized. Overall this beer has aged pretty well, still very drinkable, a pleasure!

Beerconnaiseur (166) - BELGIUM - AUG 31, 2014
37,5cl bottle from 2002 - dark barn conservation. Pours a dark amber with thin head with a good persistency. Definitely sugared with a small acidity. Aroma is hay, hint of honey, barn yard and slightly malty. Medium carbonation. Tastes like pricots, golden raisins, toffee, clover, raw yeast, and a little alcohol. Very smooth and mild hints of herbs. Glad to taste an aged beer I had an initial low expectancy of.

Alengrin (4713) - BELGIUM - AUG 22, 2014
Session beer made by Liefmans since 1995 but discontinued when owner Riva went bankrupt in 2007. Off-white head, amber colour, misty. Bit dull aroma, malty, bready, some dried fruits, yeasty. Taste light malty, rather neutral with subdued sweetishness, restrained fruitiness, yeasty, hint of orange peel, mild herbal finish. Bland and dull, never cared for it much and I wouldn’t mind if Moortgat never revives this now that they have taken over the Liefmans brand.

Viper666 (3276) - Richelieu, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 11, 2013
Bouteille 375ml. De couleur ambrée et voilée. Nez de levures fruitées (agrumes, petites notes de cerises) et épicées (poivre), avec des petites notes céréales sucrées. Moyennement ronde en bouche et moyennement pétillante avec une texture légèrement crémeuse. Goût de levures fruitées sucrées et très légèrement sûres et acides (agrumes, léger de cerises sûres, notes de raisins verts) avec des notes de légumes cuits ainsi qu’un léger goût épicé piquant (notes de poivre, traces de cannelle et de clou de girofle) lors de l’entrée en bouche suivi d’un goût de grains de malt sucrés aux notes terreuses menant à une légère amertume de houblon herbeux ainsi qu’à des notes poivrées en finale. Post-goût moyen, très légèrement amer de houblon herbeux avec un léger goût sûr de levures fruitées (moût de cerises).
