Alengrin (5109) - BELGIUM - SEP 9, 2014
Made for a Ghent sports club after a recipe developed by the guy who invented the Braven Apostel beers. Creamy, light beige, moussy head, brownish bronze colour. Aroma of caramel, chocolate, liqueur, plum, sour cream, iron and - alas - some DMS (cabbage). Yeasty, dry fruity taste with sourish wheat, bit metallic too, dry and lightly roasted finish, bitterish and not well-balanced - and retronasally theres the DMS again. What a weird beer to celebrate an anniversary with... Apparently conceived as a dark wheat beer, so perhaps it should be considered classifying this as a Dunkelweizen (of some sort)?

6/V/2012 - 33cl bottle from Geers (Oostakker) @ home - BB: 17/VI/13 (2012-470)

Clear dark red brown beer, nice big creamy beige head, pretty stable, adhesive. Aroma: sweet caramel, cookies, pretty hoppy, herbal notes, mocha, dark chocolate, red fruits. MF: soft carbon, medium body. Taste: little sour start, red berries, caramel, quite a lot of mocha, dried fruits. Aftertaste: mocha, little sour, spiced, milk chocolate, some caramel. Could it be the wheat malt that provides this sourness? Its not too bad, especially given the pretty low ABV!

Benzai (15140) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - MAR 17, 2012
33cl bottle @ home. Medium to dark amber to red color, medium sized white head that disappears fairly quickly. Smell malts and some fruits. Taste malts, slightly grapes, some sweetness and slightly some fruity-bitter hints. Low to medium carbo and body.

Ungstrup (36498) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - AUG 27, 2010
Bottled. A deep red beer with a tan head. The aroma has notes of malt, blueberries and cranberries. The flavor is sweet with notes of malt and blueberries as well as lighter notes of caramel and straw.

oh6gdx (26415) - Vasa, FINLAND - AUG 5, 2010
Bottled. Quite much deep amber colour with small beige head. Aroma is fruits, raisins, some alcohol and mild notes of wood. Flavour is quite much the same. A quite balanced and pleasant Belgian ale.
