Pennsylvania

3.78/5  rDev +5%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

Reddish amber with virtually no head. There was a thick layer of what I can only assume was yeast at the bottom of the bottle. Not a fine layer of sediment. Chunky, sludgy yeast (or something). I opted not to pour the yeast.

Aroma was toasted, woodsy, and slightly fruity. Biscuity, full flavor but with a light body. It would be easy to mistake for an English bitter except for the spiciness of the yeast. Low carbonation.

I never had De Koninck before it was acquired by Duvel Moortgat, so I don't know if it has changed. The reviews don't seem to always be describing the same beer, though, which is never a good sign. Still, it had a lot of pleasant flavor. Not sure about the ... yeast. Or whatever it was.

330 ml bottle poured into a tulip

A- Golden orange, dark, in color. Fizzy off white head. Retention is okay.

S- Very mild grain, mild wild yeast esters. Gives a sweet and tangy aroma, a little berry-like.

T- Mild grain again, with a slight berry/citrus tang in the finish.

M- Light in body, slightly dry and tangy finish.

O- Very mild, but has some really nice characteristics.
