Douberd (2304) - Arnhem, NETHERLANDS - MAR 19, 2014
Bottle 750 ml at home, poured into a tulip glass. ABV 6.1% Deep copper orange colour on the body, with a good sized white head. Good retention, medium lacing left aroynd the glass. The body is relatively transparent, with lots of tiny yeast pieces floating around. Aroma of malts, lots of vinous notes, light alcohol, flowers, wood. Good taste, not as complicated as I expected from the aroma. Less vinous now, more malty, more floral notes, some spices. Thin body, soft carbonation. Overall quite good.

Finn (4210) - Tromsø, NORWAY - FEB 17, 2014
Flaske 0,75l delt med flere under seanse i Tårnrommet 3 Jun 13. Aprikosfarget. Uklar. Høyt luftig skum som varer lenge. God blomsterduft. Smaken er frukt & blomster. Litt i søtligste laget - men et utmerket sommerøl.

Buongiorgio00 (779) - - FEB 8, 2014
Niente di stupefacente. Nonostante le pretese profumate della genziana, che infonde alla birra note floreali e lievemente erbacee, il gusto risulta solo superficialmente caratterizzato. Come extra si può godere di una sfumatura amara e di un retrogusto maltato-panoso, come di marzapane dolce.
