Bire dont la recette mane de la brasserie Vermeulen, ferme depuis 1978, mais ayant encore pignon sur rue Ypres (Flandre occidentale). La bire est brasse chez de Proef (Flandre orientale), et mentionne encore le nom de Vermeulen brouwerij sur le bandeau dor de ltiquette. Bien entendu, pour ratebeer, cest une bire propre de Proef cest normal (comme dit Julos le chanteur et pote, pas lempereur et batailleur ). Niveau abv de 7 %, en fermentation haute et refermente. Mon exemplaire tait 4 mois avant sa date. Couleur dor soutenu brillant, la clart nette. Bulles fines par milliers partout, bien vives, comme un sapin de Nol. Mousse blanc cass, trs crmeuse, splendide texture dense. Magnifique nez de malt/houblon/pice fleurie, avec une pointe de poire et de farine. 1re bouche souple la superbe entame malt/houblon, avec un zeste dorange. Arrire-bouche trs quilibre, dense, longue. 2me avec fruits blancs, pointe menthole, herbes, ciboulette. Arrire-bouche trs fine, trs agrable. 3me avec du malt et une pointe herbace/fleurie relevant un peu du gruut. Arrire-bouche complexe, la trs belle amertume. Longueur avec un petit flchissement et quelques fausses notes (bizarre..). Jambes fines, serres, adhrentes aux parois. Levure douce, un peu boise, ligne correcte. Alcool bien pour son niveau, il donne un quilibre de dpart. Finale au meilleur niveau que la longueur. CONCLUSION: une bire au magnifique dpart, qui faiblit assez sur la longueur, mais reste au final une bonne bire que naurait pas reni Julos (Csar), alias Vermeulen brouwerij ...

jerohen (2260) - Bussum, NETHERLANDS - AUG 6, 2009
Bottled, thanks mom for bringing. Hazy golden coloured, lots of yeast particles, big lasting white head. Fruity nose, apple and pear, some spices. Dry and bitter flavour, little bit of alcohol. This would actually be great if it were a bit more drinkable, but the alcohol is standing a bit in the way. Still, quite refreshing.

A hazy yellow beer with citrus, banana and spicy fruity flavours and a very dry warming zesty finish.

KLTZK (55) - Alkmaar, NETHERLANDS - JUL 12, 2013
Bottle 33cl. Pours a large, white, foamy head. The liquid has a hazy, dark gold, almost orange appearance. Nice fruity and malty aroma. Taste is more bitter, but still malty and fruity, also some yeast. Aftertaste is light bitter and very smooth. Oily palate. A nice beer.

StueyD (1581) - Heacham, Norfolk, ENGLAND - AUG 10, 2014
A hazy, golden yellow coloured beer with a frothy white head. A heady, slightly floral hop aroma. There is also a hint of cracker malt. A medium dry, full mouthfeel. A potent, sour yeasty taste, and a meaty malt flavour. The sourness is bolstered by a hop flavour that lasts into the finish.

minutemat (5251) - Shrewsbury, Shropshire, ENGLAND - OCT 24, 2014
330ml bottle from Vanuxeem. Pours blonde with good white head. Floral aroma. Taste verges slightly on the sweet side for a Belgian Strong Ale with hints of vanilla and a touch of spice. Quite nice.

Bottle, orange beer medium head. Aroma is fruit. Taste is the same with some yeast, little bit fizzy. Rather refreshing.

sayravai (4710) - Helsinki, FINLAND - SEP 11, 2009
(Bottled) Clear golden with a medium, bubbly-foamy head. Aroma is very mild at first, but pretty soon I found sweetish maltiness with a nice fruity twist. Flavor is neutral-malty with some orangey fruitiness, and mild spiciness. Medium body with high and foamy, but smooth carbonation. A smooth and drinkable ale with just enough oomph to keep it interesting.
