Kompel Ondergronds 6°

From Kompel brewery.

Underground’ immediately raises the image of the miner with a low dust around the face, hard work in the vast underground corridors. The roasted malt largely determines the color, aroma and taste of this beer. The beer is black as a coal in the glass and has a cream-colored foam collar. Kompel Ondergronds referments in the bottle, which makes the beer better protected and develops a more complex character.

Taste: fruity start, raisins, some red fruits, bit sweet, red liquorice, overripe fruits, somewhat bitter.

Riebedebie 9°

A triple beer. The colour is blonde to slightly amber. The beer has a sweet to spicy taste.
A traditional beer with high fermentation level, produced in small quantities, using only natural ingredients: hops, yeast, water, spices and barley malt.
Deep orange golden colour on the body, tall white head, very thick, collapsing slowly. Spots of lacing left around the glass. Aroma is malty, sugar, heavy yeast, light fruits like peaches. Taste follows, lots of sugar and malts with the yeast following, some herbs too, alcohol, metal notes on the finish, still some stone fruits present. Medium thin body, okay carbonation, dry but also sticky on the palate.
THE STORY
Riebedebie, while his wife lay peacefully sleeping collected all the pennies he had been safekeeping.
And outside he bound not making a sound.
With his booty he was crowned to go party all around. In search of spicy flavour and sweet blond savour.
Many hours after the sun has set he returns to bed just before the coffee aromas spread.
But we’ve caught him for you in a bottle of beer so a night out with Riebedebie is near, oh dear!

Ter Dolen Armand 7°

A fruity blond beer with an explosion of citrus, resulting from dry-hopping with the American hops breed Cascade. In order to maintain the hoppy aroma as much as possible, the beer isn’t filtered. It is slightly cloudy and has a snow white head. It is served in a robust, accompanying glass. At the first international Belgian beer contest, the Brussels Beer Challenge, Armand Ter Dolen won a gold medal. The beer was created in honour of Ter Dolen’s co-founder Armand Desplenter, the father of current director Mieke Desplenter.
Hazy golden color, with nice white head. Aroma nice american hops, fruity. Medium body. Taste good fruits from the American hop, nice bitterness, dry end. Recommended.

Scheldebrouwerij Hop Ruiter 8.5°

Hop Ruiter (Hop Rider) has a full, almost rustic malt body, and pairs Belgian yeast-driven flavors with American assertive hoppiness. It is dry hopped, with two noble varieties which add complexity, delicacy and a bit of funk. Orange with golden hue, frothy head, bit murky, gentle carbonation. Aroma is very fruity and hoppy, with pineapple, pine, lemon. Faintest hint of carrot juice. Reminds of ipa, but it’s not that harsh. Taste starts fruity again, with notes of exotic fruit. Develops a fruity, doughy bitterness, with a distinct boozy sensation. Really a great example of the style, worth seeking out.

Gruut Inferno 8.5°

From Gentse Stadsbrouwerij – Gruut brewery.

Pours a clear pale with big, fluffy white head that lingers. As if to accentuate the looks, a lemony smell, some pale malts presence. Aroma vontains hay, resin, lemon, grape, raisin, appleand spices like pepper. Flavor starts off light acidic, to go to sweet and to finish in light bitterness. Drinks pretty decent.
