Countbeer (6222) - Best of E-Town mit 2 Brauhausen, NETHERLANDS - MAY 26, 2012
Bottle: Medium off white head, disappears really slow and a leaves a closed off white lacing on top of an dark orange darker amber colored beer. Smell barley, barley malts, soap, shampoo, soapy barley wine. Taste is a very nice mix of barleys, barley malts, some hops and floral hop bitters, herbs, autumnal herbs, floral herbs, mint herbs, some darker fruits and sweets but just a hint. Very nice balanced. Aftertaste of low bitterness with a barley and batley malted sweetness. Nit sweet but nicely balanced, again. Low carbo, soft mouthfeel, good medium bodied and a light watery light creamy texture. This is a nice beer, specially when watching a band play, could absorb liters of this stuff easily.

Rastacouere (6174) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 21, 2007
Cloudy dark golden beer. Large slowly diminishing 1cm head of white and lasting foam. Yeasty, estery, flowery and slightly citrusy aromas. Mildly toasted malts beginnings quickly switch toward flowery and lemony hops. Fair supporting body all through. Quite simple in its maltiness, not developing too much flavours (surprising feature for De Hemel!), but comfortable and smooth.

Mora2000 (6157) - McKinney, Texas, USA - AUG 26, 2013
Orange pour with a white head. The aroma has some biscuit and toffee notes. The flavor is similar with some toffee, grass, alcohol and ginger. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

On tap at 11 Meibockfestival (Amsterdam, May 2008). Golden body with slight head. Nose of malts, sugar and spices. Strong taste of malts, caramel and spices. Some bitterness in the finish. Nice.

BoBoChamp (5755) - Gent, BELGIUM - AUG 17, 2010
50cl, at 6.5%Vol, Dutch brewery, from Melger’s Haarlem, not complex brew, spicy, yet balanced, clear, small head, nice Summer brew, yet expensive!

DutchDrebus (5612) - Oirschot, NETHERLANDS - JUL 12, 2012
Bottle thx to benzai. Light amber to golden colour with a decent, soft creamy white head. Smells barnyard, some orangepeel, malts, some ’cheap asian pilsener’ notes. Tastes malty, bit fruity but not very fresh. Not bad, not great. Good carbo, medium body.

mike_77 (5576) - Breda, NETHERLANDS - JUL 26, 2012
Bright copper colour. Herbal, slightly medicinal aroma and some vegetable stock. Flavour also has strong herbal taste and overall is rather sweet. Some bitter orange and ginger come through too.

erickok (5469) - Leuven, BELGIUM - DEC 28, 2012
Golden bodied with low carbonation and off white small head. Medium sweet aroma from the caramel and peach like malts. Some added cinnamon and cardamon spices. White Raisins as well. Taste starts spicy sweet, like cookies or spiced pie. Later the bitterness is more pronounced. It doesn’t have many dimensions and generally doesn’t hit the right spot for me. Malty and hopless can be okay, but this one doesn’t convince. (50cl bottle from my secret Sinterklaas, thanks!)
