Martinus (3049) - Baarle-Nassau, NETHERLANDS - SEP 13, 2011
Hazy slightly pale amber colour, white head. Fruity aroma, orange peel, apricot, citrus fruits. Wheat and some caramel. Flavour of sweet malts, some yeast character and fruity apricot and citrus. Finish slightly bitter and very fruity.
I like this beer very much when itís fresh, but there have been older versions around that I didnít enjoy quite as much.

Shared bottle courtesy of Ivar. White, disappating film on a hazy, golden body. Malty, spicy, dried light fruits, fresh tobacco, caramel and honey on the nose. Malty sweet, spicy and light bitter flavors. Medium to full body. Juicy. Smooth. Light acidity in the finish.

Douberd (2590) - Arnhem, NETHERLANDS - DEC 7, 2013
Bottle 500 ml, bought at the brewery. ABV 6.5%. Poured into a tulip glass. Deep golden orange colour on the body, with a light haze in it. Two fingers of mostly white head, thick, with very good retention. Medium lacing left on the glass. Aroma is light fruity, with some floral notes too and mostly grains, but the combination with the fruit notes makes it quite good. Some yeast and clear malts present as well, after a deep sniff. Taste has some yeast and quite a few spices, cardamon seeds, little bit of an orange peel. Medium thin body, good carbonation. Quite dry palate. Overall quite good, certainly the best I had from De Hemel till now between their bottled selection.

Clear golden yellow with decent but bubly white foam head. Aroma is weak, more like a pilsener. Taste is barley and OK bitter. Short bitter aftertaste with some caramel present. (Velp 201208)

Hazy orange coloured, small head. Spicy and yeasty like all De Hemel brews, very peppery. No my favourite kind of beer.
