MrHangover (3680) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - OCT 2, 2015
Bottle. Pours a hazy brown amber beer with a big off white head on top. Aroma of dark fruits, big sweet malts, dirt tones and some dark fruits and spices. Flavor is quite sweet, very malty, loads of dark fruits and sugars in there. Typical, thin bock mouthfeel, low carbonation but long, sweet finish. Nice bock to to start the season!

MonsterMagnet (856) - NETHERLANDS - FEB 16, 2015
Bottle, pours amber brown with a dense off white head. Aroma: raisins, nuts, spices. Taste: Berries, plums, spices (nutmeg, cinnamon, clove, cumin), dried leaves, caramel, nuts. Medium sweet, light bitterness, light-medium body, average to lively carbonation, fairly dry finish. I’m not a big fan of bock beers, but Windbuul is very well balanced and surprisingly enjoyable.

Douberd (3995) - Arnhem, NETHERLANDS - OCT 21, 2014
(Berghoeve Windbuul) Bottle 330 ml at home, served into a snifter. ABV 7% Pours a red brown beer, with clear transparent body, light beige head on top. Good retention. Aroma is mostly of nuts, light caramel, some grass. Taste is better, still some nuts but not as much as on the aroma, caramel, a bit herbal too, with a hint of alcohol on the finish. Medium thin body, soft carbonation. Overall okay.
