brouwerij Vaneigene Sisser
At Barrazza in Ghent. Commercialized hobby brew with very thick and creamy, dense, stable, lacing, egg-white head and hazy peach blonde robe with pale orangey tinge, visibly fizzing. Aroma of dried orange peel, red apple, old bread crust, dried peach, straw, camomile, hints of toast and a tad DMS (cooked vegetables), but faintly so. Fruity onset, touch banana ester but not descending into bubblegum, restrained dried peach sweetishness, sharpish carbo, supple mouthfeel. Bready, very lightly toasty malt middle, rounded, dryish, with sharper grainy edges; finishes a tad yeasty, bit phenolic here and there, with a grassy, floral hop bitterness in the tail, medium in length but quenching and sufficiently drying. Stereotypical Belgian blonde - yet another one - but pleasant in its slightly above average hop bitterness and only moderately sweet profile.

33cl bottle at Biermuseum Ertvelde, in Ertvelde-Evergem (13 VIII 2016) - the only place where to get this black sticky brew with yellow-white collar. This beer is brewed with Poperinge hops, and three kinds of malts: Pale-ale, munich and rost. In the nose one can already spot that malty character. In the flavours there are sugars and black Liegeois syrup too. The sugarness does remind of dextrose, adding some fruity hints to the aromas. The tastefeel is heavily sweet, medium bitter and has keen earth, turf and very strong coffee beans accents. The taste and body are quite strong, intense even, all this combined with a huge alcoholic warming at the start and at the end. The sweetness and coffee backbone are somewhat overpowered, making this atypical and appealing strong ale quite unbalanced. But all in all, a fine and strong bodied taste sensation.

Blonde aux 4 céréales, donc une "special grain", nous sommes d’accord. Mais référencée, comme d’habitude sur ratebeer, en "belgian ale" et qui plus est "strong" … Alors il faudra que l’on m’explique en quoi 8 % abv peut être strong … Bref, voyons ce qu’il y a dedans .. malts d’orge, de seigle et d’épeautre du Meetjesland, plus de l’avoine, ça fait bien 4. Houblons de Poperinge (c’est en Belgique) : du magnum et du challenger. Mon exemplaire était à sa date. Couleur doré à ambré, à la clarté nette. Bulles moyennes, par dizaines, vives. Mousse blanche, qui devient un nappage crémeux à 1 mm. Arômes de malt à whisky, pointe de genièvre, cosse de haricot. 1ère bouche très souple sur des malts divers un peu foncés, de l’avoine et une pointe de spéculoos. Arrière-bouche avec malt cara, assez dense mais encore un peu indéfinie. 2ème avec une grande fusion des malts, avec une belle ampleur. Arrière-bouche large. 3ème avec quelques nuances liquoreuses, et du bois, mais l’harmonie n’est pourtant pas au top. Arrière-bouche un peu confuse, mais très agréable. Longueur qui travaille les malts de belle manière. Jambes fines, longues. Levure douce et un peu boisée, belle ligne. Alcool très correct, il soutient les saveurs. Finale de belle tenue. CONCLUSION : une bière conçue sur une base solide, qui travaille très bien les céréales, mais qui manque malheureusement un peu d’harmonie sur le parcours... Une special grain tout à fait honnête, qui demanderait à être retravaillée... Avis à la cuisinière !!

Hazy golden, lacing, a big white head. Nose is honeycmbs, citruses peel, floral hops and Belgian yeast. Body is full, carbon fine, texture thick. Taste is bitter. Palate is dominated by wood, green banana, citruses and Belgian yeast, pines and dandelion milk. Perfect for me, very different from other similar types by a natural wood palate and honeycombs both in noste and palate. Bitter aftertaste. [email protected]

Blonde de 8,5 % abv en triple houblons, dit le brasseur, et à vrai dire à 8 houblons de Poperinge, assortis d’un malt pils … Mon exemplaire était exactement à 2 ans de mise en bouteille. Couleur doré ambré, avec de la matière en suspension. Bulles moyennes, en fontaine centrale, très vives. Mousse qui devient un nappage de surface entretenu par les bulles. Arômes de malt, fleurs de houblon, abricot, pêche de vigne. 1ère bouche souple à l’entame malt pils et herbes médicinales, houblon amer. Arrière-bouche plus délicate, mais les herbes percent fortement. 2ème assez jolie, mais impression davantage herbeuse que houblonnée. Un paradoxe, vu le nombre de houblon employés !! 3ème avec une petite nuance liquoreuse, jolie mais un peu hors sujet !! Arrière-bouche plus intégrée, agréable. Longueur avec du bois, du babeurre, des fruits confits. Jambes marquées mais courtes. Levure forte, assez épicée, belle ligne. Alcool correct, il est pourtant limité dans son action. Finale assez liquoreuse. CONCLUSION : bière qui est davantage une spéciale belge qu’une houblonnée, avec l’âge peut-être, qui sait !!??

Den Tseut’s second beer since 2008, typical Belgian dubbel, also tasted as Beremietje Donker in Ertvelde’s former Biermuseum. Irregularly shaped, moussy, pale yellowish beige, slowly dissipating head over a cloudy chestnut brown beer wit mahogany reddish hue. Aroma of caramel, candied date, ripe banana, coriander, gingerbread, brown sugar, apple sauce, stewed beef (this beer is clearly teeming with proteins), dough, cocoa, pineapple. Sweet onset with slightly sourish edge and light umami accents, lots of fig, banana and overripe peach, a bit overcarbonated to the point where it becomes slightly numbing, slick caramelly malt sweetness in the middle, light toasted accent, herbal and earthy hop bitterish touch in the end but the brown sugar sweetness overlying the whole beer sticks a bit in the throat. Sweet-accented, classically designed Belgian dubbel, made interesting by these unintentional proteins lending it a somewhat ’beefy’ character.

Bottle bought online. Another Tseut beer, this time a classically intended Belgian honey beer. Thickly ’papery’ lacing, dense and moussy, off-white head over a peach blonde beer with salmon pinkish hue, clear but ’obscured’ by a fog of yeast particles. Aroma of lots of green banana, yellow plum, yellow raisins, honey indeed but not overpowering, biscuit, orange flesh, white pepper, mandarin, fresh peach, meringue, sweet red apple or overripe pear, apple sauce, amaretto, dough, white rum, some vague tropical flowers, cinnamon and grass. Fruity onset, very estery but not out of control, sweet banana, peach and pineapple along with a deeper gooseberry sourishness, medium to sharpish carbonation but not really ’numbing’, smooth and full malt sweetness, caramelly and bready adorned with honey sweetness and ongoing fruity esters as well as some spicy phenols, leading to a sweetish but warming finish of persisting malt sweetness, yeast bitterness, some earthy and spicy hops providing a quite long lasting, resinous bitterness and a fair amount of warming, yet ’unastringent’, white rum-like alcohol. Quite okay, this one; very cliché Belgian honey beer in the league of e.g. Barbar Blond or Bieken, but doing well in comparison with those classics. May be too sweet for some, but it does show a certain depth and I cannot find any technical flaws in the style of DMS, H2S, DMTS and the like. Sweet and anything but exciting but surely decent.

Limitedly produced burnet beer (a herb) for art gallery manager Pim De Rudder, a local celebrity in Assenede, hence the use of the burnet herb, the Dutch name of which is pimpernel. Thanks to Craftmember for bringing me this bottle straight from said art gallery. Paradoxically, the label states on the one hand that it can be kept till 2031 if stored cool, dry and stable, and on the other hand ’beperkt houdbaar’, which means it has a limited shelf life... An apt illustration of the fact that Belgian laws regarding shelf life are unrealistic when it comes to most beers I suppose, but anyway. Medium thick, moussy, off-white head retaining well on the edges and as a thin, light greyish veil over the liquid’s surface; hazy peach blonde robe with orangey hue, turning a bit darker and even more cloudy with deposit, as can be expected - becoming completely murky in the very end (puddle water). Aroma of overripe persimmon and papaja (with the same kind of weird ’smokiness’), soapy wheat, peach, cooked chicken, stewed apple, onsetting oxidation (wet paper), sweet pickled gherkins (which could represent the burnet), iron, hints of steamed white cabbage (but not in the DMS way), sweet red curry, honey, mouldy orange, urine, cooked rhubarb with brown sugar, hint chamomille. Sweet onset, vanilla sugar or honey even, with fruity notes of overripe pear, peach and mango, soft carbo (in fact a tad undercarbonated for this particular style, in my opinion), soft gooseberry and rhubarb sourishness underneath which manages to persist till the very end; very supple, light, sweet and slick middle phase, honeyish malt sweetness accentuated by residual sugar, caramelly touch as well as soft, soapy wheat malt presence; the burnet, already a subtle aromatic herb when fresh, seems to add some retronasal nutty and floral accents. Hops are clearly reduced to a minimum, just a subtle floral effect is there, but hardly any bitterness at all to counter this honey sweetness which bothered me already from the start. The result is that a slick, resinous, cloying sweetness remains in the back of the mouth after swallowing, and even a vague echo of ’young jenever’-like alcohol can be felt, fortunately not in an astringent way. There is something urine-like in the aroma, a kind of vague, ’stinky’ sourishness amidst all the stewed fruit and rhubarb-with-sugar sweetness, and this unpleasant effect does not do this beer any good; with the head largely reduced after a while and the deposit added, it looks like some home-made pear juice, lacks body due to undercarbonation, and the taste is clearly much too sweet, teeming with unfermented sugars and insufficiently hopped even for an ordinary ’Belgian blonde’. Comes across as very amateuristic, and even though Den Tseut is a small and fairly ’unambitious’ home brewery, I had beers from them which performed a lot better. Probably past its prime, granted, but I cannot imagine this having been a great beer to begin with. Funny label with Pim’s face on it and all those fake hop variety names, though...

33cl [email protected] Vermaek, Slenne 2016. - Bref: Pours, smells and tastes like a rougher, both yeast- and hop-bitter version of regional classic Augustijn Blond. - Dirty orangebeige pour - the cartoon pig straight from the 80s does not help much to elevate this beer’s aura beyond the pigsty & stable. - Green, almost white-peppery "wet" hops in aroma, then intimations of something fruitier soon overshadowed by wet yeast fumes. Dials back the honeysweet speciality malts of a traditional Belgian blond recipe (Augustijn, Ename) to substitute with deft earthy EU hop bite that falls on a rougher, yeast-laden mouthfeel and somehow lacks structure.
