Gentse Strop – Fier Gents Bier
Belgian Ale, 6.9% alc vol 35 IBU
The Beer: First hit is a fruity aroma then comes the heavy malt with some sweet honey hints; slightly opaque gold in colour with a fluffy head; gorgeously fresh malty taste with alcohol warmth, not much bitterness, hints of honey at the edges, really comes across the tongue delicately; medium bodied, really smooth
Thoughts: Not had a Belgian beer for ages, and this one is smooth, hard hitting in alcohol warmth, and I want more. Simple, I’m off to Ghent.
