“Belgian brewers often supplement
the balance of malt sweetness
and hop bitterness with fruity,
spicy, floral and herbal aromas.”
Some Belgian beers are like running
through a hayfield at harvest
and others explode with
a whole orchard of fruit flavours.”
“Soft, mellow tartness
and mild horse blanket funk
will make you smile
and desire another glass”
Or a “delicate balance of grain
and caramel, burn and edge,
…..uniquely ancient taste.”
“I like to close my eyes and puzzle it out.
Where does the floral grapefruit end?
Where do the musty lemons begin?”
“An enchanting, not-quite-earthy
yeast character, a whiff of spicy hops
…. a tightrope balance
between crisp and malty.”
“The refined sourness countered
with some caramel sweetness.
… hints of raisins and red apples.
Sour meets sweet at a sublime level.”
