Tout en étant traditionnelle sur ses bases, elle présente l'originalité d'un goût unique à la menthe, ainsi qu'une robe aux impressions verdâtres. Arôme et goût ne font qu'un, si ce n'est que sa saveur avance un poivré plus prononcé qu'au nez. Elle est naturellement rafraîchissante, et terriblement désaltérante. Elle offre aussi une amertume légère rappelant aussi l'utilisation d'un houblon aromatique de première qualité. Un plaisir tonifiant!

Post Borefts I jaunt to De Heeren van Liedekercke. A dark green beer with a light green head!! Mint and aged malt nose. Cooling smooth peppermint and mint. Has retained it’s core character even after 19 years (Kudos to the DHVL cellar as well). A little malt at the end but pretty much swamped with cooling mint. A great beer to upset people with! He he!

A Mes rate. Bottle from 1990 at DHVL.
There has been one bottle of this left on the menu for a long long time, quite a few years I think. I’d always looked at it and laughed. Ken (madmitch77 to you lot) looks at what I consider one of the best menus in the world on his first visit to DHVL and immediately orders the Minty. Something wrong with you mate!!! I’m gonna give it a 5 for appearance just for the sheer hell of it. It’s a clean emerald green with an impressive light green head considering it’s 19 years old. It’s actually not anything like as bad as I was expecting. In fact I was part expecting projectile vomit but I managed to hold it in.Shit load of mint, lots of old caramel and as much cardboard as you would expect. Absolutely awful. Thanks Ken.

25cl really old bottle at DHVL on a roadtrip. Thanks to Ken, MadMitch for buying this as I can’t see anyone else having the balls to do so. Anyway, you know what? It’s not as bad as everyone made it out to be. Yes it’s green as hell, but clear and a slightly greenish white head. Peppermint on aroma. Bit of must. Mint like mouthwash and even some walnuts from the mustiness on the flavour. So it’s a minty mouthwash, but it has no off flavours and not as bad as some things I had this weekend.

Bottle 25cl. [ Vintage 1990 ].
Clear dark brown color with a average, fizzy, good lacing, mostly lasting, white to light green head. Aroma is moderate to heavy malty, sweet vintage malt, minty and minty. Flavor is light heavy sweet with a long to average duration, and a minty burnt in the finish. Body is medium, texture is oily, carbonation is soft. [20081212]

Engelsmann (651) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - AUG 23, 2006
Botle at Heeren de Lidekerke. Pours a clear green with a frothy white head. Aroma is mint, sweet, and just a hint of malt. Taste is sweet peppermint and... Thats it. no other taste almost like toothpaste. Weird beer.

UPDATED: OCT 24, 2005 (Bottle 25 cl) One thing you soon learn as a Belgian beer lover is never to be surprised: not by name, bottle, style or flavour. So although I did find a peppermint beer rather odd, then again - so many Belgians are? And by Huyghe standards nothing is odd really. The beer pours golden with a small, creamy head. Aroma is pure mint. Flavour is pure, sweet mint - nothing else really. I believe the base beer is a blond ale. Refreshing all right when served cold. Wonder how big a market share Huyghe has for 050498
