    Belgian Ales have a place in my fridge all the time. This is a light brown ale, slightly hazed with a white cap. The aroma is sweet malt, yeast, and lemon zest. Ample spices are prevalent as well. The flavour is sweet caramel, yeast, and spices. Quite good.

    Pours clear dark red with good white head. Aroma is sweet caramel, Belgian spice, some citrus and floral. Medium watery mouthfeel. Flavor is sweet caramel, some citrus and floral hops. Nothing special.

    pours a clear slightly dense dark copper body with a lumpy grey head that is supported by a strong carbonation of microbubbles. The taste is soft fruity note from esters fades to a hop note but it is pretty clean. The taste is dry flinty hops, a soft canned fruit note to a dry finish. There is a hop pungency that lingers but it fades as the beer opens. The mouthfeel is light bodied with a crisp carbonation.

    Draft at restaurant eating mussels and french fries, a must when in Antwerp - although very touristic, also quality. light amber with good solid foam head. Sweet taste goes well with food, just the perfect beer at this moment. That's all, nothing special. (Antwerp 201201)

    De Koninck fails to impress me. It's an ok beer, but it fails to distinguish itself from other dark belgium ales. So it's just one of those beers that doesn't leave much of an impression. When served in it's original goblet it looks ok and the thin foamy head makes it a bit... uninviting. The taste is just as it looks, not really special, an ok dark beer. Hints of malt and sweet herbs. Not the best, certainly not the worst.

    Decent beer. Smells of sweet malt and a little vinegar (might be because it is an old bottle dated 2009). Pours with lots of floaties. Full body, mouthfeel and appearance. It's almost like a bock beer. Sweet malt and little hops dominate the flavor. Good beer but not what I would expect from a Belgium brewery.

    Pours a nice burn copper color, with a some haze. Brief head, toasted grain - malt flavors not overly bitter to somewhat bitter aftertaste. Little bottle, 11 oz, an ok experience.

    Not the best of Belgium, but a serviceable beer. A reddish brown pour, but the head is quite small. The aroma is toasted malt, some nuttiness, and the taste is the same, although the aftertaste can be very bitter.

    Pours a nearly opaque light chocolate brown with a thick, fine-bubbled ecru head. Aroma is malty, hoppy and subtly chocolaty. Mouth-filling malty flavor has hints of molasses, chocolate, nuts, hops and spice. Texture is smooth, fizzy, and quite pleasing.
