Brouwerij Huyghe La Guillotine – Belgian Golden Strong Ale at 8.5% ABV

Brouwerij Huyghe La Guillotine Belgian Golden Strong Ale at 8.5% ABV (C$4.89 at NLC Stavanger, 330 ml, best before 30-Apr-2019, acquired 19-Jun-2016, reviewed 6-Sep-2016)

Appearance: clear medium gold with two fingers of fluffy white head diminishing gradually to a thin skim, minimal patchy lacing. (3/5) Aroma: crackery malt, light citrus, faint apple. (7/10) Taste: moderate sweet, moderate tart, moderate-low bitter. (7/10) Medium body, lively carbonation, dry yet sweetish warming finish. (4/5)

(Re-rated) Definitely much better than the last time I tried it – there’s now no doubt that I had a bad bottle, before. This is almost but not quite like a tripel, but sweeter, with less in the way of characteristic Belgian esters. Not as good as the Delirium offerings, perhaps, but still decent. (14/20)
