De Koninck

This is a speed review because I have too many backlogged beer notes. Get it while it is still on tap at Clive's Classic Lounge. They also have the Fruli Strawberry beer on tap.

Ratebeer 3.09 59th percentile
Beer Advocate B

Taste +3

The nose was faintly vinous with plums, esters and light spice. This amber ale was medium-full bodied with good carbonation and a creamy mouthfeel. It was quite fruity with cherries, plums, grasses and a subdued spicy hop ending.

Aftertaste 0

The ending was quick and dry.

Alcohol Content 0 5%

No surprises here.

Value +1

I'm not sure how it would taste in a bottle, but on tap it was nice, flavourful and refreshing.

Ingame Enhancement 0

Nope none tonight.

Overall 4/10

De Koninck was a pretty good amber Belgian. It was fruity, creamy with a subdued spicy hop ending.
