Bayard - 6% alc/vol
Comments - For Brasserie Demarche in Ciney
Cuvée de Ciney 10 - 9% alc/vol
Tasting Notes - Pleasant, fruity malt and bitter chocolate marred by strong candy sugar taste.
Cuvée de Ciney Blonde - 7% alc/vol
Tasting Notes - An unexciting beer that neither excites the taste buds nor quenches the thirst.
Cuvée de Ciney Brune - 7% alc/vol
Tasting Notes - Another disappointing beer. The nose is not particularly impressive but suggested more than the beer
Cuvée de l'Ermitage - 7.5% alc/vol
Comments - 2001 back to 7.5% from 8.5%. Used to be a good beer but too much recipe tinkering in recent years.
Tasting Notes - A moderately complex beer though the finish disappoints due to the strong, candied sweetness.
Cuvée de l'Ermitage Christmas - 8% alc/vol
Tasting Notes - Shame about the burnt edge to the palate and the saccharin in the finish - it could have been an
excellent after dinner beer.
Faro - 1.25% alc/vol
Grimbergen Blonde - 7% alc/vol
Tasting Notes - Overpoweringly sweet. Typifies what multi-nationals do best !
Grimbergen Cuvée Speciale
Grimbergen Dubbel - 6.5% alc/vol
Tasting Notes - Starts promisingly but fades to a disappointing blandness in the end.
Grimbergen Optimo Bruno - 10% alc/vol
Tasting Notes - Totally uncompromising with a strong peardrop alcohol overlaying a fruity malt background.
Grimbergen Pater Familias - 7% alc/vol
Grimbergen Roussa - 6.2% alc/vol
Grimbergen Tripel - 9% alc/vol
Tasting Notes - Certainly leaves you in no doubt as to the alcohol content but comes across as a reasonably full
flavoured but quite sweet version of a triple. With less sweetness it has the potentioal to be a good beer.
Judas - 8.5% alc/vol
Tasting Notes - Quite good example of a Duvel-type golden ale with a strong taste. Not a bad substitute but lacks the
Roobens Rood - 4% alc/vol
Rubens Goud - 4.3% alc/vol
Tasting Notes - A dry, uninspiring hop and malt taste don't favour this beer.
Tafelbier - 1.3% alc/vol
Watneys Scotch - 8% alc/vol
Tasting Notes - Certainly doesn't taste 8%. Far too sweet and cloying to be considered a true example of a Scotch
