Douberd (3302) - Arnhem, NETHERLANDS - FEB 18, 2013
330 ml bottle, at home. Poured into my tulip glass. ABV 8,5%. Deep orange copper colour. No activity in the glass, but a beautiful, tall, white head on top. Soapy in texture, with very good retention, leaving heavy lacing behind. Floral and citrus hops on the aroma, with some light alcohol and spice notes. Great! Light bitter taste, becomes even more bitter on the aftertaste, with a nice, long finish. Medium thick on the body, carbonation a little bit above average. Overall, nice beer, bitter and refreshing.

Swaroga (1813) - Brussels, BELGIUM - SEP 17, 2012
33cl bottle. Hazy orange. Medium white head. Nose ; little tart and lambic like smell. Notes of nuts, citrus zest, some straw. wet laundry and soap. Sip ; good carbonation, medium density liquid with oily texture. Sweet with some tart flavors, strong fruity notes like peach, lemon. Straw flavors, delicate esters develops funky ending which is a bit like an old nut. Aftertaste is nutty as well. Overall this beer is a nice discovery but I might never come back to it again.
