Douberd (2599) - Arnhem, NETHERLANDS - MAY 19, 2014
From a bottle at Zeebra II. Golden orange colour on the body, slighty hazy, with small off-white head on top. Very good retention, light lacing left on the glass. lighty sour aroma, grape-y, peaches, abit of yeast, somehting that I can’t exactly recognize but it’s very appealing and refreshing, difficult to resisit in taking a sip. Taste follow the aroma, with lots of peaches, sweet malts that are balanced by a toch o sourness, old wood, sugars, yeast, lots of wine notes, white grapes. Medium thin bod, carbonation towards the high side. Moderate dry on te palate. In just two words, just great.

Bottle from the cellar of Farmhouse Tap and Grill, Burlington VT. Lots of floating yeast in the nice golden color. Nose of candy sugar, dried fruit, yeasty. Flavor is great! Nice warming heat after the sip without any ABV. And spot on the aroma and style. Really damn fine.

Marsiblursi (3028) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - FEB 16, 2014
Pours hazy orange brown with an off white head. The aroma holds vine, spicy wood, nettles, grapes, complex yeast, fat malt and a touch of Euro hops. The flavour is light sweet, light bitter and light to medium acidic. Grapes, complex yeast, fat malt, touch of hops and wood. The mouthfeel is fat and a bit tart with a medium, fizzy carbonation. Near full bodied.

GothGargoyle (1421) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 26, 2014
Reasonably clear light brown with a good pale head that leaves some nice lacing. Aroma is raisins, brown sugar, dates, figs, baked apple, caramel, honey, hint of booze. Full bodied, sticky mouthfeel, sweet on the palate with a fruity finish. Taste is caramel, baked apple, raisins, wildflower honey, Belgian candy sugar, hint of fig and dried apricot. Yum.

phredrik (1011) - Copenhagen (formerly Aalborg), DENMARK - JAN 19, 2014
Bottle at Mikkeller, thanks to Martin. Pours clear chestnut with a white head. Aroma is amazing - intense red wine aroma. Lots of sherry-like heavy fruitiness, much like sherryk drizzled raisins or figs. Lightly oxidized. The classic orange-zing from a rather young stille Nacht. Beautiful! Taste has a lot of the same elements. The lightly astringent oak notes emphasize the beer’s bitterness in the finish. Amazing! Such dollars, much rare, wow, very belgium.
