There's a definite air of retro about the label of Seef. The reassuringly brylcreemed man sends the message that this is reliable, trustworthy beer. It's a 6.5% ABV blonde and a darker shade than most, a clear old gold colour. The aroma entices with cinnamon spicing but I definitely didn't expect the flavour. Sour. Just gently, mind: more Berlinerwiesse than gueuze, and with a similar wheatiness in the background. The texture is quite light and the carbonation low, which makes it wonderfully drinkable.
Anyone expecting something along the lines of Leffe Blonde will get a terrible shock from this, but I really enjoyed it.
Westmalle Dubbel - *Origin: Belgium | Date: 2008 | ABV: 7% | On The Beer Nut: October 2007* It's a longtime favourite today. Westmalle Dubbel goes back to the very beginnings...
