Brewery Bosteels

Kwak Malt

Topaz with heavenly streamers stretching for perfection. Creamy head of structured perfection in terms of density and longevity. Perfect sheet of fog lacing falls like a slo-mo curtain to reveal layer two of mountain snows reflecting moonlight. Nose of bananas foster in all its blazing brandy and it’s caramelized olfactory topography; a malt image in sensory sepia to match the mountainscape. Nutmeg, cola and pecan dessert vies with baklava. The palate is a revelation in balance. The expected Belgian malt emerges in contrast to a dappled vanilla and Connecticut tobacco, pecan shell dryness, and chicory coffee before returning to a root tonic sweetness, and cardamom. #kwak #belgianspecialbeers #belgianale #belgianbeer #pauwelkwak #pauwelkwakbrewery #beer #bier #birra #biere #ale #ceveza #cerveja #belgium #belgian — 4 years ago

Brasserie Dupont

Vieille Provision Saison Dupont Belgian Farmhouse Ale

Active peach-gold and inscrutably, near opaque, with an arrogantly vaulted, whited foam tower, unblemished by human tears; clinging lacing like dish soap suds, tear raggedly to silhouettes of prehistoric headbutts. Soapy breastmilk and citrus rising on yeast, grapefruit pith peeled thinly, clover rolls just browning, and leather fringes. Lively mouthfeel as expected. Lime pith and grapefruit with papery ginger slices, orange zest, magnolia, carrot bread, straw, zucchini spirals, ginseng, and banana peel. Complex rusticity. .

Brasserie de l’Abbaye du Val-Dieu

Val-Dieu Cuvée Spéciale 800 ans 2016

Peruvian salt crystals, brioche, and fittingly: beer. Hints of Egyptian musk. The aromas are constantly changing. Leather and bee pollen with a soap note. Golden and cloudy with a persistently sudsy head. Salinity is evident. Grapefruit, iron, sunflower seed, and a big yeast presence with lingering breaded stuffed clam misted with butter and all wrapped in grape leaf. #valdieu #belgianbeer #abbeyale #trappiste #trappist #monkjunk #cuvee800 #yeastbeast — 6 years ago

St. Bernardus Brouwerij

Prior 8 Belgian Abbey Ale Beer

Maduro brown with mahogany polish; solid cap of varying creams. Low-helium balloon, slow drop lacing bejeweled like lively paramecia. There is a sweet cola entry which builds malt and date and brown sugar scope, adding vanilla bean and cocoa. Chewed leather, candied ginger, waterlogged ginseng, almond, pecan, chestnut and bourbon notes. Lighter-than-anticipated mouthfeel expresses tea versus cola implied, but leaves you ruminating on it’s perfection, which is somehow like dark toasted phyllo brushed with maple living like a wafer inside of a bonbon biosphere. Several roots are prominent; sassafras, ginger, man back, and glazed, roasted carrots. There is an overshadowing of coffee, though thin, and carob. The malt prevails, to plant the Belgian flag. Tastes of gritty, rustic elements, but flows like fine silks. Bravo! .

To Øl

Mr. Pink

You can smell the lychee and guava but I first thought passion fruit. It’s like a jungle sometimes. Chords of ruby grapefruit shine through with Orange blossom honey, apricot and clementine. Packs some pucker power with lemon and grapefruit leading; hibiscus, and tangerine on the heels with lemon and orange peel hugging on the heels. Tart and dry with a marigold finish. #toøl #MrPink #BerlinerWeisse #beer #bier #Belgium #belgianbeer #lychee #guava #pureguava — 6 years ago

Cantillon Brewery

Rosé De Gambrinus Raspberry Lambic

NV while looking at the worldcup football game Belgium - Tunesië, this is an excellent beer to enjoy. What a treat! Partnered it with paté de campagne & cornichons. #belgianbeer Brewery in Brussels — 6 years ago

Best brewery for lambic. Spontanius fermentation with typical native yeasts from the surrounding air. Can t get much better

De Proefbrouwerij

To Øl Rødgrød Med Fløde Fruit Beer

TO ØL Rødgrød med fløde! Alpenglow colored head with sporadic Dubuffet lacing. Lemon peel, orange pith and carrot cake notes and a biological note that shimmers like salmon eggs full of clean minerals. Crisp mouthfeel with lemon oil bouncing off the roof of your mouth, while berries emerge, dry out, dissipate and repeat with each berry unique in the progression; strawberry, raspberry, cranberry, blueberry. Then enclosed in tangerine, white apricot, lemon, and grapefruit for a refreshingly satisfying finish that must have resembled Eziekiel's vision, but with berry-skulls. #TOØL #belgianbeer #sourale #sourbeer #sourbeers — 7 years ago

St. Bernardus

Pater 6 2016

Darkest brown patched with bubbles as lichens. Magnificent and noble head of sable; loose cartography of lacing. Brown sugar, dark, grainy malt and leather that all turns smoky with a swirl. Dry tobacco whiffs and roasted beets and grilled sprouts and caramelized onion. Light of touch in autumn woods, with applewood, cedar and late afternoon shadows of vanilla bean, caramel thread counts, clove smoke, and light malts to nicely bundle and button the parcel. These perfumes of devotion are lifted on wildflower scrub. #trappist #trappisten #stbernarduspster6 #abbeyale #peter6 #belgianbeer #bier #biere #birra #ale #brstbdrnard — 4 years ago

Brasserie de Rochefort

Trappistes Rochefort 10 Quadrupel Ale

All the essentials. Hope these monks blessed the devil out of this! Gorgeous auburn brown that looks as rich as fresh tilled, valley loam. This head don’t quit! Cappuccino foam with variations. Sheeted micro-weave of bubbles in the lacing that part like thick lips, as if to say, ‘ahhh.’ A touch of baked marshmallow-on-yam. Coffee rye, barley grist, malt and grilled meat interplay, twice baked potatoes with bacon, sour cream and chives. Caramel drizzle. Dark honey glazed sourdough toast. Blood orange squeezed onto fondue, baked, mushroom stuffed persimmon. Heady, rustic, decadent nose invites us to a feast. Intense finesse! So multi-layered they had to fold it into the bottle! There is a cognac barrel aspect that has a cedar and oregano intertwined in an aged balsamic depth. Bark-y and chicory but also resembling petite verdot in its unctuous and integral core. Cherrywood and rich, dark maduro tobacco. The list could literally go on forever. The bread of Life. #trappiste #rochefort #trappistesrochefortten #trappistesrochefort10 #belgian #belgianale #belgianbeer #belgianbier #abbeyale #abbayeale #ale #beer #bier #biere #birra #cerveza #cerveja #abbayeaddesaintremy #rochefort #belgium — 4 years ago

Brasserie de Blaugies

Darbyste Ale brewed with Fig Juice

Big, just-off-white crown lingers over dark, orange-amber, but once it resides is nearly laceless with isolated organic, punctuating archipelagos. Initial, buttery nutritional yeast, crystalline mangrove honey, magnolias, marigold, candied lemon peel and sweet rosemary, but don't let the fig addition and the sweet aromatics fool you; sour and underripe complexity ensues. Medium-heavy, unfiltered mouthfeel feels petulant, but swallows almost flat due to the dichotomy of dryness. Dried and underripe apricot combo, pineapple essence, gooseberry, chalk, snail shell, gravel dust, dried violets, fishbone, key lime, tangerine zest, and leek. A bright, green, mineral-driven offering. #farmcharm #saison #Darbyste #biere #bier #beer #brasseriedeblaugies #artisinale #nonfiltre #wit #blanche #bierdarbyste #belgian #belgianbeer #familyowned — 7 years ago
