Bottle 33cl. Thanks to Bierkoning! Pours a muddy dark red/brown colour with massive foam and carbonation. Strong orange like aroma, some hints of herbs there too. Taste is of raisins and also the aromatic oranges there. Goes down very warm.

Bottle, thnx to Secret Sinterklaas 2013. Pours a hazy amber beer with a massive off white head on top. Aroma is mostly Belgian yeast, red fruits and is actually quite nice. Still the yeast is very present in this. Funny thing happened. When I put the bottle back down after the second pour, there was beer streaming out of the bottle. So I need to buy another keyboard... again. After this huge gusher of epic proportions, I’d continue drinking this beverage. Flavor is very sweet, malty and caramel with again a fruity, yeasty touch to it. Quite unbalanced to the sweeter side of the palate. Higly carbonated, prickly mouthfeel, long sweet finish. It’s a decent beer, but it has too many flaws for a really good score.

Wow what a huge gusher, this brew practically exploded out of the bottle. Very annoying. Aroma is nutty, malty, toffee, overripe dark fruits, some hops. Flavour is sticky sweetness, toffee. Some bitterness in the rather dry finish. Peculiar beer, it seems a bit imbalanced but there’s something attractive about it as well.

Many thanks to Douberd for this Beer. Ins Glas ergießt sich ein rötlichbraunes Bier mit großer Schaumkrone. Hohe Karbonation. Geruch malzig fruchtig, leicht alkoholisch. Geschmack sehr malzig fruchtig süß, alkoholisch wirkend.

Open the 0,33 l bottle and - GUSHING! - after that a sticky sweet smelling table. Dark honey red brown in the glass. Big foamy head until the end. Sweet floral on the nose. Starts with a short full body, sweet and a lot of malt. Followed by nuts with almonds on a strong bitter-sweet alcoholic bedding. Berriefruits later. In my opinion a little bit too much of all. Not easy to handle.

Douberd (1688) - Arnhem, NETHERLANDS - NOV 27, 2013
Bottle 330 ml, poured into a tulip glass at home. ABV 8.5% Deep red to amber brown colour on the body, with a huge off white head. Low retention. Almost no lacing left on thw glass. Aroma is nutty, a little bit sour, yeast. Taste also nutty and that is the main flavour actually. Other than that red fruits, obvious alcohol especially on the finish, sugar giving it a quite sweet taste. Medium body, average carbonation. Kind of sticky on the palate. Overall okay, sort of annoying all this foam in the glass after every tiny pour, but taste and aroma wise is more than decent.

jmgreenuk (3563) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - NOV 18, 2013
Bottle from ABC Beers, Den Haag. Poured a cloudy medium amber with a huge frothy white head. Not a gusher but not far from it. The aroma is yeast and sweet citrus fruit. The flavour is medium bitter with a yeasty weak fruit, slight liqourice, weak medicinal hop palate. Medium bodied with fizzy carbonation. There are lots of flavours in here, but i’m not sure I liked them all together.

Gusher. Poured a very hazy medium amber with a frothy off white head. Aroma of sweet malt and boiled vegetables. Medium smooth body, flavour of sweet caramel malt. Pretty naff.

Thanks alot to the bierkoning. Well, but this one is definitely not that king of beers. All of it is just foam. Well, some hops, bit fruits and thats it. Really strong and....foamy.

McTapps (2955) - Ruhrgebiet, GERMANY - AUG 15, 2013
Bottle from trade with bierkoning - many thanks! Pours out in a milky orange colour with big steady creamy head and smooth body. Nose of Belgian yeast and flowers. Taste of light yet aromatic Belgian yeast, roses, apples, hay and berries. Unfortunately it has got a big and steady carbonation what made it not that easy to drink. Soapy and foamy finish. Taste is nice, the rest isn’t.
