75cl bottle. Hazy golden colour with a nice white head. Grainy, malty and fruity aroma. Average carbonation and medium body. Taste is sweet at start with some fruity notes and more bitter, hoppy towards the finish. Some astringency. Overall, an average beer. mjik83 (1559) - Maastricht, NETHERLANDS - MAY 11, 2015

75 cl. bottle. Hazy yellow colour with a white head. Aroma and flavour of malt, caramel, fruit, yeast, spice and hops. Alengrin (5255) - BELGIUM - OCT 24, 2014
The third Tournée Générale beer, for the third series of the beer tv show, in 2013, when innovation and tradition were confronted - a keen observation in my opinion, as the dynamics between both ’extremes’ are exactly what has shaped Belgian beer culture throughout the 20th and 21st century. This beer bears a thinnish, sticky, off-white head and a warm ’old gold’ colour, clear but hazy with deposit. Grainy aroma, green apple, banana, sweetish pale malts, young ’jenever’, sweat, iron, yoghurt. Soft and rounded palate, apple with a slight hint of citrus, minerally and even metallic hints, pale malts, some grassy hops in the finish, shortish, with a somewhat astringent, wodka-like alcohol effect. Quality-wise a return to the mediocrity of the first one, in my view. If we may expect a new series in 2015, I hope they’ll finally come up with something that does not necessarily strives to please just anyone.
