Gijzels Blond
Bottle @ Neerhof, Moortsele. Hazy honey coloured beer, white foam. Citrussy, hints of wheat, sweet malts, artificial sweetness. Unbalanced, boring and some off flavours. Not the best Belgian ale.

Oranje kleurig bier met mooie stevige schuimkrag. Smaak is bitter hoppig en licht kruidig met weinig specifieke smaak nuances maar daarom zeker niet slecht.

Delhaize Beer & Cheese Edition 2017
Bottle from the Delhaize supermarket at the Ghent Watersportbaan - and apparently made exclusively for it, strange... Intended to be combined with cheese. Thick, coarse, irregular, egg-white, quickly dissolving head, hazy warm amber colour with coppery hue. Aroma of old toast, dried apple peel, 'can' iron, bird seed, dry cookies, star aniseed, dried banana, plastic, camomile, dried apricot, hot cloth. Fruity onset in a clean and subdued way, hinting at banana, apple and peach, restrained with a sourish edge, very sharply overcarbonated and numbing the tongue a bit; lightly toasted and nutty malt body, bit soapy, some plastic-like notes in the end alongside floral, straightforward noble hop bitterness, a subtle star aniseed note and lingering bread crumb-like maltiness. Clearly one for the great masses, very accessible and quite simplistic, but correct. Feels a bit like a throwback to the pre-Mikkeller era at 'Proef'brouwerij, now that I come to think of it, a time when many a Belgian commissioner turned to them for what eventually resulted in an impenetrable mass of unassuming, but correctly made Belgian 'Proef' ales...

De Proefbrouwerij Gageleer White - No Hops
Pours hazy blonde, small white head is consistant. Smell is tart, wheat, dry, almost like a berliner weisse. Taste is tart, sharp, very dry, lemon-like sourness and astigency, even lemon-ish taste. some wheat, which finishes very nicely in the aftertaste. pretty sharp and dry. Not a bad beer at all, and certainly different. A bit to dry for my personal liking though.

Belfort 9° Bruin
Robe brune assez limpide, reflets rouges. Col de mousse beige bien calibré, assez stable et compacte. Bonne tenue. Nez doux, vanillé, caramel. Bouche douce aux arômes de caramel, vanille, grains grillés, toastés, fruits secs. Douceur un petit peu compensée par des notes houblonnées herbacées. Finale douce avec une légère amertume, assez longue. Alcool très bien intégré. Corpulence moyenne pour le style, carbonatation moyenne. Brune douce, gourmande classique avec une fine amertume qui assèche légèrement.

Robe blonde orange très voilée. Mousse blanche assez abondante, compacte, stable, aspect neigeux. Très bonne tenue. Nez malté et moyennement houblonné. Bouche maltée et fort levurée, notes de banane, caramel léger. Houblons bien présents pour assécher la bouche, amertume moyenne. Finale douce-amère, bel équilibre. Corpulence moyenne, carbonatation assez vive. Blonde belge forte classique, bien levurée et équilibré entre la douceur maltée et l'amertume houblonnée. Petit air de Diabolique dans la corpulence et la carbonatation.

De Proefbrouwerij / New Glarus Abtsolution
750 ml bottle from Artale in Rockford (I think) in November 2017, served a little below cellar temp from a Maudite glass. Bitch of a time getting the artificial cork out, slight pop when finally extracted...moderate to large light tan head half-fills the glass, decaying very slowly and leaving thick chunks behind, topping a deep red-maroon body....lightly funky aroma, some dark fruit character (blackberries?), some earthy tones, a touch of sourdough yeastiness...body is middling-sweet, a little less sugary than usual for the style maybe, somewhat smoky-roasty at the front and becoming strongly so by the finish, peppery and lightly tart with an underlying sharp note throughout, lightly yeasty....the body is very full, almost verging on heavy but the just-right strong carbonation keeps it from getting weighted down, though the overall potency of the flavor profile will contribute to making this a somewhat tough to drink monster; while overall this is very good, verging on excellent, it's a bit much for me at the moment, and I wish I had someone to share it with on this lonely cold Christmas Eve. Happy Holidays everyone.
