Kossaat
Pours rather clear blonde, good to big white head. Smell is douh-ghy, sweet, mild yeast, distant malts. Taste is bitter, very very sweet underneath, honey and loads of Sugar. overcarbonated. yeasty ( typical Belgian, those overripe characters ) Very boring, less than average taste to me. no Obvious flaws, yet very Obvious, shitloads of Sugar . I’ll pass for a second one, but at least it’s a beer I can finish.

Kossaat
Blonde de 6,7 % abv. Mon exemplaire était à 18 mois après sa date. Couleur doré tendance ambré, avec des particules en suspension. Bulles moyennes, partout, assez vives. Mousse blanc cassé, crémeuse avec des agglomérats en ronds, stable à 2 mm. Arômes de malt cara, pâte à crêpes, pointe de muscade. 1ère bouche souple, à l’entame très moyenne, malt cara et pointe de cassonade. Arrière-bouche sans personnalité. 2ème sur du malt grillé et un peu d’épices. Arrière-bouche assez courte. 3ème entre caramel et candi, avec de la confiture d’abricot. Arrière-bouche sur le candi. La longueur n’améliore pas l’harmonie. Jambes fines, longues, un rien collantes. Levure basique. Alcool sans effet sur la longueur. Finale linéaire. CONCLUSION : bière de complaisance pour certains commerces qui ont besoin d’une bière spécifique .. mais rien de notoire.

Vom Auftreten her, eher ein normales Belgian Ale. Klar, ein bisschen alkoholische Wärme im Nachtrunk und ein dauerhaft vorhandenes Belgian Yeast Flair sind normalerweise Garanten für ein ordentliches BSA Fest, allerdings lassen hier zu viele blumig samtige Aspekte, das ganze Strong Ale Unterfangen, schnell im Sand verlaufen. Trotzdem solide hefig und durchaus schmackhaft. Anscheinend das BSA für die Mittagspause. Schäumend, citrusfresh und bekömmlich. Give me more Hops, please. 😁. 0,33l Buddel aus Groningen.

Robe brune, mousse crémeuse, peu persistante. Nez plus malté et chocolaté que la précédente, avec toujours un fond de miel et de fruits secs. Bouche à l’attaque aussi ronde, plus torréfiée, bulle onctueuse et finale miellée. Deux bières différentes mais avec de nombreuses similitudes.

Bottle 33cl, a clear copper beer with medium head. Nose is on caramel and malty like. Aroma is on caramel, candy sugar and cassonnade, some bubblegum notes and light red fruits, quadruple like yeast notes, blond caramel finish and slightly buttery. Kind of imperial doubble, a mix between quadruple and dubble.

Barwa ciemno złocista, klarowne. Piana średnio obfita, drobno i średnio pęcherzykowa, biała, średnio trwała, ładnie zdobi szkło - koronka. W aromacie wyczuwalny alkohol ale raczej przyjemny, aromat słodkawy, subtelne nuty biszkoptowa oraz melasy. W smaku podobnie jak w aromacie, lekka słodycz, nuta biszkoptowa. Delikatne rozgrzewanie od alkoholu, mocne wysycenie, średnia treściwość.

Saison 1900
0.33 l bottle from ’Belgiuminabox.com’, best before October 2016. Slightly hazy, golden yellow with a massive, foamy, almost stable, white head. Sweetish, slightly yeasty-spicy and a bit grassy aroma of straw, clove and a touch of banana. Slightly sweetish, yeasty-spicy and slightly grassy taste of hay, light crackers, clove and a touch of banana, followed by a medium long, moderately grassy-bitter, slightly peppery-dry finish. Medium body, slightly creamy and quite effervescent mouthfeel, average to lively carbonation. Would have been nicer fresh I guess, still easily drinkable and not too bad.

Bue à la pression. Couleur dorée foncée, bien limpide, mousse faiblarde. Nez sur l’amande. En bouche c’est intense, genre abricot/pêche. Alcool bien présent mais partiellement masqué par la rondeur apportée par le sucre moins violent que dans mes souvenirs. Pas mal.

Birra dal colore ambrato, intenso. All’olfatto risalta il profumo del malto, dolce e intenso. È una birra per niente amara, bevendola si sente la dolcezza e l’intensità del malto con una lunga persistenza in bocca. Birra molto corposa. Nel finale esce il sentore di miele caratteristico di questa birra, leggero e non invasivo, ben equilibrato con il sentore erbaceo del luppolo.

Lefebvre Belgian Kriek
Bottle. Hazy pale red body, medium tall unsteady head. Quite fruity cherry aroma. Sweet cherry taste with some balancing sourness (but not enough) and wheat lightness. I guess there’s at least some part of real cherry juice in it (checks back label - yep, 15%). Too sweet for my preferences but still goes down without a fight. The label is too similar to St. Louis Kriek, which is why I almost passed on this in the store. Only the bottle size and shape made me consider the fact that it might be a different beer from a different brewery.

Bottle from local supermarket. BB 18.01.2018. Pours pinkish-purple red with pinkish white head. Aroma of oversugared cherry yoghurt, flavour’s the same. Damn sweet, and thin too. Carbonation strong. I guess it’s fairly alright with hangover.

I hope that contamination is the reason for this awful beer; probably it is, when I read other comments. Bottle pours clear dark-brown beer with a beige head. The aroma is weird; something chemical predominates, a little licorice-like but then more towards something oily. Taste has the according tone, but the beer is still drinkable, although not nice. Licorice, brown sugar, oil. I’m curious to know if this is how it should taste, or what happened if it isn’t. But not gonna try and buy again...

The beer looks beautiful. The beer has a very rich look. The color of the beer is a nice dark ruby red. The beer is quite clear. There aren’t a lot of bubbles in the beer. On top of the beer a nice layer of rough off white foam is formed. The foam collapses very quickly, leaving a minimal drape. The smell of the beer is good. It is very rich. I smell some delicious sweet malts, with a little roasty edge to it. There is also a nice herby touch to the beer. There is also some anise, liquorice, caramel and toffee. The smell is quite dark and warming, it’s a real winter smell. I understand why this is a Sinterklaas beer. I also smell some nice doughy Belgian ale yeast aromas. The taste is nice, but slightly less compared to the smell. I smell some sweet malts, a little sour yeast touch and a nice hoppy bitterness. Its quite a nice beer. It’s not very special (I aspected a bit more, speculaas kruiden could be a nice Sinterklaas twist), but it is nice. The palate is good, it has just the right amount of gas. Nice one.
