Tasting Summary

These comments are the opinion of the individual reviewer and represent what they thought of the beer on a particular day in a particular pub. If a review is less favourable, it may be because the beer suffered somewhere in the supply chain between them and the brewery.

Taverne Horta, Brussels, Belgium

Magnus GreelExcellent18 Jul 2019 Tried this after SH's review, superb 2019 edition, smooth bready wheaty and bizarre as it sounds, bananas!
Stephen HarrisExcellent28 Sep 2016 From a bottle. My first taste of the 2016 vintage, and it is probably as good as ever.

Sam's Café, Brussels, Belgium

Stephen HarrisExcellent23 Jan 2018 A 2017 vintage bottle and on excellent form I thought.
ChrisEExcellent19 Oct 2015 Exactly as described by Stephen Harris although I must confess I did not check the vintage on the bottle.
Stephen HarrisExcellent13 Oct 2015 From a bottle. 2015 vintage: fresh and very well-carbonated. With the yeast and sediment all poured in (important to do this with this beer I think) it had much of the character I was beginning to think had been lost from this beer. Rich, spicy, warming and just a hint of sourness.

Stephen HarrisGood10 Jan 2014 A couple of Chimays helped the afternoon pass in to evening. These 2013 bottles still tasting just a little raw and not yet quite the full ticket.

Stephen HarrisExcellent07 Dec 2013 Bottled 2013 vintage is starting to mellow nicely.

The Rambler, Ghent, Belgium

Stephen HarrisExcellent06 Oct 2013 Served from a bottle. I am amongst those who believe that this beer is no longer the exceptional, classic beer it once was. This bottle was of the 2013 vintage, so still pretty fresh. It is still a wonderfully rich, strong, brown beer in the Abbey Dubbel style.
