Bottle. Nose of very sweet stone fruit, pears, marshmallow, sugar, yeast, and a bit of oxidation. Slight chill haze, amber brown color. Medium sweet, mild medium maltiness, with a touch of sugar, some spice, and yeast. Medium body (maybe a little thin). Pleasant, and certainly not any “misfortune.” However, it’s hard to keep the bigger and mor full-featured Malheurs (10 and 12) out of mind while drinking this weaker version.

Fles thuis geprobeerd met Roelzie1986. Het is een goudgeel bier met een volle schuimkraag. Het heeft een wat moutige geur. De smaak is moutig en licht zoet. Piepenhenrich (1337) - Steinbach, GERMANY - OCT 7, 2017

Robe blonde, fine mousse. Nez dominé par des notes de miel, d'épices et de malt. Bouche ronde et fruitée, de la sucrosité, une bulle onctueuse et une finale ronde, croute mais équilibrée. Bière agréable mais pas transcendante. Rubin77 (3004) - Brussels / Bratislava, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - SEP 8, 2017

Bottle. Rather clear golden color with white head. Aroma is grassy, earthy old world hops and fresh Belgian yeasts, cereal and biscuits from the malts. Taste is more cereal, with a spicy twist touch from the yeast and earthy ground flavours from the hopping. Medium to high carbonation that stays soft. Classic Belgian Ale, but not among the best ones. Cristobal37 (1358) - Budapest, HUNGARY - AUG 8, 2017
Bottle. Pale blonde. Aroma is malts and damp cellar. Crisp beer, refreshing, green grapes and drying quality. Palate is oily hops. A decent blonde, not terribly characteristic, but enjoyable nonetheless. It’s good, but not as remarkable as it’s big brother 12 or the Biere Brut. TtV (482) - Nijmegen, NETHERLANDS - JUN 25, 2017
Bottle 25 cl. Light yellow, bit hazy with a small white head. Aroma of grain, malts, fruits (peaches). The taste is sweet with an undertone of hops and fruits. Little development in the aftertaste. Gangstergafje (1414) - Capelle aan den IJssel, NETHERLANDS - JUN 15, 2017
15-06-2017; bottle; at home.
The looks of the beer are quite nice. The color of the beer is a nice golden yellow. The beer has a nice silky look, because of the nice cloudiness. On top of the beer a nice layer of soft white foam is formed. Foam retention is quite good.
The smell of the beer is nice. It is a nice Belgian Ale smell. It is spicy, robust and bold. I smell some nice malty aromas at first, giving a nice sweetness. Besides this, there is a lovely fruity aroma. I smell some orange, some zest and touches of koriander and other spices. There is also a floral touch. The floral and coriander touches seem hop derived. I like those hoppy touches. Pairs lovely with the malts.
The taste of the beer is also nice. I taste some nice malty base tones, with some fruity flavours. I also taste nice bitter hops, with some zesty citrus and floral flavours, with a touch of spiciness. All is very well balanced. I like it.
The palate of the beer is nice. Medium body, smooth and a nice medium carbonation. The finish of the beer has a nice fruitiness, together with some bitter hops and a spicy touch. All in all, a lovely beer. Traditionally Belgium, but with more power and kick. It isn’t stuck in tradition, but leaves room for development. I love it. Great work.
