   AROMA 8/10   APPEARANCE 4/5   TASTE 8/10   PALATE 4/5   OVERALL 16/20
Bart (2936) - Brussels, - DEC 16, 2007
Darker brown coloured with no carbonation and a small diminishing off white head. Overwhelming aroma, ripe fruits, roasted, chocolat and some light herby hints. Full creamy palate. Finish is sweet, little alcoholic, with a very light herby sour touch at the end. Overall a well balanced beer. Like this one.

hohops (1157) - Kent, ENGLAND - MAY 13, 2016
Appearance- murky, dirty-water brown, sediment drops out despite a careful pour, a quickly-disappearing beige head. Aroma- banana dominates, with sugary dark fruits, yeasty brown bread, toffee and caramel biscuit. Taste- sweet dark fruits- raisin, plum. Brown bread, fruitcake, almond, cherry, candied banana, sultanas, Belgian yeast. Quite a full fluffy mouthfeel with a fair bit of carbonation. Abv well hidden. Good stuff.

Alengrin (5884) - BELGIUM - SEP 20, 2014
UPDATED: SEP 13, 2015 Originally made for the justly famed Kerstbierfestival of 2007 in only 25 crates with a preliminary label, now in regular production with a ’full-fledged’ label and dubbed "Kerst-, Paas- en Sinksenbier", basically meaning - with the typically Belgian ironic approach to beer names - that it can be enjoyed all year round. Violent gusher, with foam creeping out of the bottle even after capturing a full glass of the liquid. Creamy and moussy, thickly lacing, yellowish white head, hazy reddish burgundy colour - the typical appearance of a ’massieve ale’, or, as it is called here, a quadrupel. Nose is perhaps a bit ’wild’ but rich and inviting: the liquorice, effectively used here, is clearly present, along with ’speculoos’, ruby port, brown sugar, baked banana, hazelnut paste, candied cherries, raisins, figs, "sirop de Liège", earthy forest floor, some freshly fermented farmland and varnish-like phenols, whisky, milk chocolate, bayleaf, cloves, white pepper. Sweet onset, banana, overripe pineapple, peach, bubblegum, brown sugar, but countered with a deep, subtle sourishness preventing it from becoming too cloying; liquorice already palpable at this point and remaining present throughout the palate but - to me - not disturbing, though I can imagine it will bother people who do not like it. Very soft, fluffy, full mouthfeel with soft carbonation, based on a thick layer of bready, caramelly malt sweetishness with a chocolatey edge to it. Finish remains very thickly malty, along with a peppery, leafy hop bitter note providing balance against the lingering brown sugar sweetness, and a deep, heart warming glow of rhum-like alcohol, pleasurable in this particular style. Too bad for the gushing, a little bit too phenolic, could use some moderation and refinement, but the flavour is quite alright, and if my notes from 2007 were accurate, it seems to have gained more body in the past eight years as well. Enjoyed it, this beer is a real comfort on a gloomy, dreary Sunday afternoon announcing the beginnings of autumn.

Een heel goed biertje. Niet iedereen gaat dit misschien lusten, maar ik vond het top

corkyrory66 (2400) - BELGIUM - JUN 27, 2014
Il est bien connu qu’un brasseur ne peut réussir toutes ses bières... Ce Père canard est d’une couleur ambre moyen à roux clair, avec un léger voile de levure. Bulles quasi inexistantes dans mon exemplaire qui est pourtant assez jeune. Mousse qui consiste en un nappage fin beige. Arômes de vin moelleux, fruits confits, épices orientales, pointe de candi. 1ère bouche soyeuse avec une entrée sur du malt spécial et des aromates fleuries. Arrière-bouche très douce et sucrée. 2ème bouche d’un goût assez « plat », sans relief, mais pas désagréable. 3ème où les saveurs sont un peu « légumineuses » !!! Arrière-bouch sur des fruits confits et une pointe de rhum. La longueur est toujours très soft, mais sans percée de saveurs. Son niveau est très linéaire. Les saveurs sont, dirions-nous, un peu fantomatiques. La levure est structurée, mais d’une ligne très moyenne. L’alcool est progressif, mais que soutient-il ? La finale est de la même tendance, sans aucun éveil. CONCLUSION : une bière vraiment sans conviction, plate. Le niveau abv dès lors ne sert à rien, sinon à endormir le dégustateur.
