The most popular beer in Antwerp, according to my sources...
Pours a nice, clear, mahogany color with an intial moderate tan head that quickly recedes. Very faint sour smell that almost completely disguises the yeast and the malts. Nowhere near the aroma of a Rodenbach or Petrus but altogether not uninviting.
Boasts a pleasant carbonation in the taste. More of a bitterness than sourness shines through. Dry and somewhat tart, but not too much else to write home about. Displays a thin body, with a lack of character, no real depth.
I could probably put down a lot of these on a night out clubbing in Antwerp, as it's certainly much more pelasing than an american macro, but not very interesting.

Amber beer with a thin lip of foam. Looks good in its own glassware.
Musty Belgique maltiness, brown apple flesh, sprite acidity, and darker grains. Not bad.
Amber twist to a Belgian Pale. Follows the nose with apple and pear, but picks up some drier bitterness and herbaceous hops toward the finish. Tasty and simple. Mouthfeel is carb-light, but still good. Great swish. Drinkable as hell.

Served in a De Koninck chalice at Beelow's.
This tap has been here too long without me partaking of its contents. Time to rectify that. It pours a hazy rusted tawny topped by a half-finger of faded khaki foam. The nose comprises rye bread, light ruby red grapefruit zest, Belgian yeast, a hint of clove, and a few drops of maple syrup. The taste brings in more of the same, along with some mild grass and flowers for the sake of it. The body is a lithe medium, with a light moderate carbonation and a sorta/kinda drying finish. Overall, a nice little BPA, nothing to write home about, but if you're here and need a bit of Belgian-ness, it's here for you.
