Bouteille 2006. Couleur orange, claire, bien effervescente, mousse gnreuse, bulles assez grosse, traces sur le verre. Arme de levures, fruit et houblonn, caramel. Got lgrement malt, pamplemousse, houblons floraux. Effervescence moyenne forte, corps mince. Manque de corps et de complexit en bouche, mais loeil et le nez sauvent cette bire.

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 (5116) - 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 wouldnt mind if Moortgat never revives this now that they have taken over the Liefmans brand.
