COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Specially brewed for the Ratebeer European Summer Gathering 2013 in The Netherlands. Organisation by Joes, Benzai, Martinus and Dutchdrebus. IPA / Orange Pale Ale brewed with El Dorado and Cascade.

Tevreden Oordeel is een zogenaamde Double IPA. India Pale Ale is een bierstijl die bekend staat om zijn hopgeur en smaak. Een double IPA is daar een sterkere variant van. Het is lastig om een goede Double IPA te maken, omdat de zoetheid van het sterkere bier vaak domineert en de hopsmaak en geur naar de achtergrond verdwijnen. Dankzij het gebruik van El Dorado hop denken wij hier desondanks bijzonder goed in geslaagd te zijn.

Purchased @ De Molen. As the label says: “Brewed for Ratebeer European Summer Gathering 2013”. Very cool initiative, thx! to everyone who organized RBESG & arranged this beer getting made and the brewers. Very fresh, 3 days past release. Murky brownish, light touch of fox amber, off-white head. Nose is very hoppy, earthly, lots of earthly fruits & some tropical ones as well, dried orange peel, grapefruit & touch caramel. Taste is bitter earth, dried mandarin & orange peel, harsh earthly caramel, fruity, very bitter pine needles, nicely harsh. The bitterness lingers. Full malty body. Very straightforward & simple. Very nice but could use something to really make it pop, great brew but with something this could have been something really special it just feels. First batch is limited to 299 bottles. I need more very fresh IPA’s.

MaartenRF10 (1597) - Wageningen, NETHERLANDS - JUL 19, 2013
Bottle thanks to Benzai! Pours a dark amber coloured beer, slightly hazy, with a very nice lasting beige head. Great aroma of fruits like mango, pineapple and lychee. Taste is good as well, fruity hops again, bit of pepper, good bitterness as well as fruity sweetness. Decent body, nice high carbo. Berghoeve’s best so far I guess! This should definitely stay in its assortment.

Thanks to bierkoning for that bottle. Looks really good. Beer in the glass zippy, nice head. Fine hoppy aroma. Starts strong hoppy and interesting fruity like orange and grapefruit. Mild sourish notes. Finish drier, less fruity, more bitter. Great one!

TrefwoordPunk (808) - Leiden, NETHERLANDS - SEP 14, 2013
Bottle 33 cl. Pours a brownish red with a medium, partly fading off-white head and an aroma that’s dominated by orange, also notes of lemon, syrup, caramel, fresh hops, liquor and cider. The taste is surprisingly sweet compared to the aroma, but not overly sweet. Lots of fresh fruity notes and a nice long hoppy bitterness in the finish. A really nice new beer, I can only hope it stays in the Berghoeve assortment!

Countbeer (4427) - Best of E-Town mit ein Brauhaus, NETHERLANDS - JUL 12, 2013
Bottle: Served in a Chouffe glass: Thanks Rene for the bottle: Thanks RBESG crew (and the brewer of course) for the beer! Aroma from the bottle is already a nice mix of hop flowers and flor tones. Medium sized, vast and thicker, slowly changing white foamy head on top of a hazy to murky amber colored beer. Aroma is very floral with a light fruity touch with some fruits like apricot, citrus and pine apple. Also some yeast and cream. Flavour has a right away strong present and staying present bitterness with a tint of soap, that quickly but short shows some fruit than turns bitter again with some floral hop and plant tones. Different but the same... Fruity but not hoppy, floral but not dull. Aftertaste is also bitter with a light hop spiced sensation and some chalk. Lots of floral, grass and plant tones. Low to medium carbo, soft tingly creamy mouthfeel, medium to lightly fuller bodied and a creamy texture. An exceptional, heavy but delicious IPA!

330ml bottle. Courtesy of Martinus, many thanks mate!!. Citrus, some caramel aromas. Pours hazy amber, with very nice off-white head, persistent, good lacing. Medium body, crispy texture, average to high carbonation. Taste is quite bitter, citrusy, some grapy. Balanced and very enjoyable. A very nice one.
