I’ll be quite honest here – I bought this beer just because I love the glass! I’ve wanted to have this beer in the packs for some time, and finally sorted it.
I had this beer many years ago, but to my memory it was a lighter colour and higher in alcohol. More like a strong blond ale than what I’m going to put in the box of a Belgian amber ale. But I can’t find anything on the history of this beer, so maybe I’m confusing it with another beer.
Our beer pours a nice copper colour, but with very little aroma. There are notes of the Belgian yeast, and something a little earthy or herbal, but that’s about it.
Thankfully there is a bit more in the taste. There isn’t a lot of sweetness to this beer. It is quite dry right from the start. Very fine bubbles of carbonation make this beer light in the mouth.
I think there is as much flavour in the aftertaste as there is while the beer sits on your tongue. From the dry and slightly spicy finish, I get a little more malt flavour, and that dry and earthy minerality persists long after the beer has gone.
