2/III/14 - 33cl bottle from De Bierloods / Zytholoog (Adegem) @ home - BB: 5/IV/14 (2014-237) JorisPPattyn (10026) - Ursel, BELGIUM - JUL 26, 2012
Clear dark blond beer, aery big fizzy off-white head, little stable, non adhesive. Aroma: candy, sweet, orange peel, caramel, bit oxidized, marzipan, sweet malts. MF: ok carbon, medium body. Taste: bit fruity start, lots of orange peel, bitter and hoppy, citrus, bit malty, some marzipan. Aftertaste: caramel, pretty sweet, bit sugary, little sourish, citric touch, very fruity, honey, canned peaches with syrup. I don’t know why, but I love this beer. Just very well balanced and complex enough, I guess?
Very good, just yellowish head, fast receding over veiled orange-golden beer. Banana- and bubblegumnose, and other yeastesters. Neutral to light-sweetish, bit toasted, to nearly roasted taste. Dried orangepeel powder, again yeasty. Feels very carbonated, CO² very obvious. Gives the impression of still being in fermentation, albeit in the final stages. The unique label tells us: "Anno 2008". If it were really brewed then, one probably couldn’t sell it any longer. Then "De Pinte". That’s a town in richer Gent’ suburbia. Then: "Het echt Pints biertje". Wow. That’s an outright lie. It is supposed to be brewed in Gottem, but even that is probably not true. Hijfte near Lochristi, anyone? 33cl, alcohol 7.5%. Ah, finally something positive and substantial. And then... nothing. So - next to nothing, and amongst that, even lies. Oh, yes, the cap tells us the BBDate. Hooray. And to top it all, it’s not even an original beer - but a labelbeer, kind of, but we don’t know from which. If it’s St. Canarus tripel... see Lochristi. The beer is quite OK, but I’m disgusted all the same! BoBoChamp (5755) - Gent, BELGIUM - JUL 8, 2012
