i dig these interesting belgian pales. they all have cool yeast profiles, and this one, while it shows through a little of its booze, is a very well made beer. lots of grain character. its got body and it has flavor, sweet and mildly spicy as well, a hint of pepper in there with the caramel, likely a yeast thing. hops are minimal in this belgian, even though they call it a pale, its bittering only, and its not enough to balance it out, because the malt is very sweet in this brew. it almost has a corn sweetness to it, and a slight metallic copper thing but its not at all unpleasant. much better on tap than in a bottle in my experience. frothy in feel, full bodied, creamy, very intensely carbonated, and cleanish in the finish for how sweet it is in the middle. good beer overall, but not the best example of the style out there by any means.

Pours a light golden color with a white head. Plenty of lace, fluffy head, active carbonation. The aroma has plenty of belgian yeast fruit esters, sweet semi tropical and also dark fruit. In the flavor there was plenty of dark fruit, melon, fruit gum and dry grains. The finish is a bit light, though stinging with carbonation at first. Swirling in more yeast to the glass added a smoothness to the feel and a bit more of the honeydew melon flavor. Overall, this was a nice little Belgian pale.

Review: Can of Rince Cochon, 8.5%ABV

The Blond Beer of Flanders that used to be a French blonde. This is a beer fermented with a high degree of alcohol and its content is manufactured from water, malt and hops.

On pour we get a rather delicious looking beer, the colour was a very nice clear golden yellow colour with a decent sized frothy white head with good lacing. After a long day at work I couldn’t wait to devour this beer!

A strong smell of lemon, a sweet citrus aroma, some malts, with slight earthy notes. At over 8% the alcohol was very noticeable on the nose.

As expected you get a very strong taste, hits the senses pretty quick

Got an initial creamy taste, sweet, in fact very sweet taste of malts, with an acidic fruity after taste. An interesting balance of flavours and tastes, to give a well rounded drink.

Definitely a strong beer, a slightly creamy feel in the mouth, and overall fairly drinkable, and tasty.

Very good blonde. Abundance of flavor and a really good head on it! Highly suggested. 8.5% gets it done!

look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

Poured from a corked & caged 750 mL bottle into a Duvel tulip. Moderate hand. No identifiable date.

A: Hazy, golden yellow body with 2-3 fingers of rocky, white head. Good retention. Moderate lacing.

S: Yeasty spice with slightly musty, earthy notes. Floral, noble-type hops. Faint soap. Cracker. Grass. Hints of candi sugar.

T: The yeast opens with a bit of spice. Leads into a bit of lightly fruity, pale malt sweetness before a mildly bitter, nicely hopped finish. Mostly dry and pretty clean. Alcohol is present, but light for 8.5% ABV.

M: Moderate to high carbonation with a light to medium body. A bit prickly, but suits the flavors reasonably well.

O: Tasty brew with a pleasant hopping. Nicely balanced. Reminiscent of Duvel with the fruit and complexity dialed back a bit. Pretty quaffable, for sure.

Prost!

Appearance: A bursting head with rocky and voluminous form. Crystal clear, and almost totally bright yellow. Silvery colored head. Head retention and lacing are very very nice. Beautiful bubbles on the head after it sits.

Nose: Lemon meringue, lime, hint of white crackers and banana.

Taste: Perfect malt balance. A little medicine, aspirin, sweet bread, and meringue.

Notes: Give this one a try!
