Day #201 – De Koninck

July 21, 2011

Belgian Beer Week continues with a fantastic new glass and beer!

De Koninck

De Koninck is one of the hardest beers to spell I have reviewed so far. My iPhone wants to autocorrect this to any number of things; some which are quite amusing. This beer is a Belgian Ale and at 5% is rather sessionable. It is brewed by Moortgat which is the same company as Duvel.

This beer pours a clear light orange to copper color. Light ring of white head surrounds the glass.

The aroma is fairly grainy, kind of skunky but not by alot, and has some touches of light Belgian fruit. This fruit is what gives the beer it’s character.

The flavor is a bit bland to be honest. Smooth grains and a light malty sweetness round this out. A tad watery with brings down the intensity. Finishes easy and therefore remains a very refreshing brew.
