Review from 7/19/2009 when in Belgium.

Bottle at Erasmus (thanks Tom!).

Cloudy golden-orange color with a nice white head.

Aroma of Belgian yeast, mild spices, and perfume.

Flavor of pale malt, spices, and light fruits.

Slightly dry with a medium body. Very tasty.

Brewed for the 30th anniversary of Hotel Erasmus in Brugge, Belgium. The name "Dertig" translates to the "30" in Flemish. Available only on tap at the Erasmus. Sampled on 3/20/2010.

A- Poured from the tap with a massive creamy white head, with a texture similar to a head from a nitro tap. Incredible sticky lacing throughout. The body was a well-carbonated opaque and turbid golden yellow. The head was well-retained throughout the drink.

S- Smells like lemon meringue pie- no other way for me to describe it... complete with crust, sweet lemon filling, and a toasted meringue... not cloyingly sweet... just wonderfully interesting!

T- A fantastic replicate of the nose with a lingering flavor of homemade lemon meringue pie through the finish. A little quinine-like hop bitterness kicks in the finish, just to remind you that it's a beer.

M- A big, thick and creamy body with a veritable velvet blanket of carbonation. Almost like the texture of that same fresh meringue perceived in the nose and palate. Incredible.

D- Goes down wonderfully smooth- with the alcohol very well hidden. Quaffable. Very quaffable. Only wish I could take some home in a bottle!!
