VIVEN SPECIAL BELGE  t_u  t_u  t_u

Special Belge Ale from van Viven, with an ABV of 5.0%. Last tasted in 2010.

Pours a golden ruby with a creamy frothy head which dissipates quickly to
leave a strong residual throughout, along with good lacing.

Spicy herby hoppy malty aroma.

It's medium bodied, and perfectly carbonated. Some complexity, nicely
rounded, and great depth of flavour for the ABV. Sweet malty start gives
way to a strong fruity- citrus, apple and pear- and spicy, herby, grassy,
grainy middle; then finally a long dry and bitter finish. Excellent brew,
and one of the best for the style.


Cheers!
