Douberd (3050) - 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.

Alengrin (2986) - 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.

MarcoDL (2645) - NETHERLANDS - OCT 13, 2013
Standard Belgian blond beer. I think this is mostly brewed so that the Cluyesenaer bar has its own beer.

bartlebier (2459) - Belchium im Biersgau, GERMANY - SEP 1, 2014
33cl bottle@De Bierkamer, Kluizen-Evergem 08/2014. Presents a well-managed, semi-dry portfolio of fruity aromatics (pear, honey blossom, some banana) within the style of Belgian blonde ale and is easy to drink. Some metal and a bit of a dive in taste in the mid part, somewhat lacklustre in the nose and yeast profile as with many Proef brews.

Bottled, courtesy of Arjen. Hazy golden coloured, white head. Spicy nose, dry flavour, bitter with spices. Can’t say i’m really impressed.

Swaroga (1660) - 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.
