Alengrin (1296) - BELGIUM - AUG 10, 2014
Hobby brew commercialized through ’Proef’, the creator from Evergem near Ghent now has his own beer company, but no commercial brewery (yet). Medium stable, off-white head, peach blonde colour with orange hue, misty. Aroma of orange, ripe pear, coriander, some grassy and herbal hoppiness. Fruity taste with spicy notes, bit yeasty, caramel maltiness, herbal hoppy finish. Well-balanced and correct but not much of a personality among its peers.

Douberd (2223) - Arnhem, NETHERLANDS - JUN 22, 2014
Stubby bottle, 330 ml. Poured into a tulip glass at home. ABV 7% Clear body, deep orange golden in colour. Tall off-white head, thick with very good retention.Medium lacing left behind. Weirdly nice aroma, fruity, some bananas but processed-like an not the actual fruit, sugar, some dough. Now that I am thinking about it the smell I was looking for is banana bread but a quite sweet one. Taste is also fruity but more complex, again banana bread, along with peaches, hops, sugar, light yeast, light wine notes, with a mild but satisfying bitterness on the aftertaste. Medium thin body, carbonatiion is a bit high but still on good levels. Overall very surprised by tis one, it was dirt cheap and sitting on the shelf along other more mediocre beers so I was expecting yet one of the sae but it really surpassed my expectations.

thanatosti (905) - NETHERLANDS - MAR 4, 2014
33 cl. bottle @ home, bought @ Hogerdijk, Culemborg. Hazy orange with a thick white head. Fruity hoppy aroma. Malty taste with a touch of sweetness. Aftertaste is a bit harsh. Decent but unimpressive Belgian ale.

fkoolen (272) - Maastricht, NETHERLANDS - FEB 2, 2014
Pours like an ale. A bit sour, malty, with hoppy citrus fruitiness coming through. Lively mouthfeel. Decent.

33 cl. bottle sampled @ Trollekelder in Gent. BBF 27/06/2015. Hazy orange with a white head. Nose is sweet oranges, thick BE yeast, candy sugar, lightly hoppy. Taste is lots of candy sugar, caramel, very sweet BE yeast, lots of caramel malts, sweet spices & sweet orange peel, faint hops. Touch higher carb. Not a bad brew within style.

Swaroga (1322) - Brussels, BELGIUM - OCT 26, 2013
33cl bottle. Cloudy orange with big head. NOSE : sweet malt aromas of caramel and sugar bread. Yeasty, fruity esters revealing aromas of apricot, banana and citrus peel. SIP : creamy body with medium carbonation. Sweet beginning with a background of yeast and fruits. It develops floral hop character that ends with fair amount of bitter hops. The beer is lightly bitter but just enough to end up with a pepper and metallic like aftertaste. OVERALL : good balance with decent body and carbonation. Easy to drink and 7% of alcohol is well hidden. Can’t go wrong with this one.

Standard Belgian blond beer. I think this is mostly brewed so that the Cluyesenaer bar has its own beer.

EddyBeer1 (870) - Brussels, BELGIUM - SEP 9, 2013
Dorée-orangée, pétillance quasi-absente de visu, assez pétillante au palais, col blanc fin et persistant. Assez bien maltée caramel, un peu métallique en entrée, présence de miel, coriandre, fruits, réglisse, petite amertume sur une fin moyenne. Plus qu’agréable malgré un ABV qui peut paraître traître.
