Alengrin (5097) - BELGIUM - OCT 12, 2014
One of Slaghmuylders charmingly old-fashioned beers, from a time when pale lager conquered Belgium. In fact, this was the first Belgian Easter beer ever, and remained the only Belgian Easter lager since. Very much like Slaghmuylders Kerstbier, but the sample I tasted, was unfiltered and had more yeasty notes because of that. And like the Kerstbier, I regard this as one of the better Belgian lagers.

BlackHaddock (6974) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - MAY 8, 2012
Tasted at the 2007 Zythos fest. Light blonde, this beer is classed as a Czech Pilsner on BA, which I suppose isnt far wrong. A slight hazy body under a thin white head. Yeast and some malt flavours can be detected in the aroma, but no overpowering smell. Clean, even though cloudy in appearance and fairly crisp, a bit sweet and yeasty. Hops and yeast aftertaste. I would have another.

Blonde with a nice white head. Aroma of flowers (chamomile) and sweet taste, with a bit of flowers and herbs aftertaste.

BigMomma (231) - Leuven, BELGIUM - MAY 6, 2011
On draft at Heeren van Liedekerke
Aroma of vinegar and sour apples. Flavor has some slight caramel notes but again is quite sour.
You could explain this flavors by saying that my palate is completely wasted by previous beers but that wasnt the case. Only other explanation, and definetly after knowing what style it is (or should be), is an infection... . Flavor was at least more tasty then most Pale lagers.. .

Travlr (23609) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - APR 30, 2011
Draft at De Heeren van Liedekercke. Hazy dark pink color, off white head. Aroma of plums, raisins, cherries, green apples. Taste is sour applesauce and red plums. Definitley not a pale lager, but also not an Easter beer. Tasty anyway, regardless of what it is.

tderoeck (9193) - Gent, BELGIUM - NOV 18, 2010
12/11/2010 - 33cl bottle @ home

Cloudy yellow to ocher coloured beer, white thick head with big bubbles in it. Aroma: quinces (yes!), yeast, fruity, bready, rotten fruit. MF: ok carbon, medium body, bit watery texture. Taste: citrus fruits, quinces, a little malt. Very unpleasant tart finish and hops. This beer is a bit off, or at least I hope so. Calls for a re-rating. Best before dates seems to be expired 6 months (thank you beer shop!).

Bottle picked up at Dranken Geers, Oostakker, Nr Gent, Belgium, June 2010 consumed 24-07-10 Pours light gold (bit dull in appearance) with a white head. The aroma is a tiny bit sour and fruity. This is soft in the mouth and a little rough if truth be known most unlike a Belgian, some spice and fruit but there was nothing here to rescue what is ultimately a well below average beer.
