Pours a golden slightly unclear beer with a good white head. Smells sweet, syrup, bit orange and yeasts. Tastes vanilla, very smooth and orange. Nice bitter finish. Low carbo, thin body and a dry texture.

Bullit (3854) - NETHERLANDS - MAY 14, 2008
Tap @ Kafe Belgie. Dark golden colour, dense medium head. Nose has orange hops and coriander. Taste is fruity, with oranges and apples, along with some spices. Not a complex beer, refreshing though.

500ml bottle (Cracked Kettle, Amsterdam) tag on bottle said 6.5%
6- Sweet fleshy fruity aroma. Anna gets peach, I get the tomato sauce you find in baked beans. Some sodium ethanoate acidity regulator too. As it warms, it becomes breadier, and loses the dodgier aspects.
3 Clear orange, almost no head
7 Lovely sweet fruity and spicy taste, with a decent bready backbone to hang the other components on. No trace of alcohol at all. 4 Smoothinsh palate, gentle carbonation, but with a nice tingle aided by the bitter noble hops. Finish is a pleasant glide from the sweeter caramelly and fruity aspects to the husky and dry, almost papery, hops. 14 The initial weird aroma when cold prejudiced me a little against this, but after a few sips I was hooked. I can imagine drinking pint after pint of this in summer time, despite the 6.5%

olio (5261) - Tampere, FINLAND - AUG 7, 2011
50 cl bottle @ Gastropub Tuulensuu, Tampere. BBE 31.12.2011.
Rated on 20110802.
Hazy copper colour with a small head. Fruits, mostly apricot and citrus on the nose, also some notes of malts. Flavor is malts and apricot, notes of citrus. Something seems to be missing for this to be an enjoyable beer.

Martinus (2630) - Nijmegen, 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.

Douberd (1690) - 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.

PotjeBier (1419) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - MAR 6, 2014
500ml swing op bottle, thanks to Secret Santa. Dark blonde color, mostly clear. Firm off white head with reasonable retention. Aromaís of grain, malts, (sour) fruit. Sweet malts, sour fruit, grain and spices (ginger, possibly anise) retronasal. Flavor is moderate sweet, caramellish, a bit herbal spicy. Medium bodied. Finishes rather dry and herbal with moderate bitterness. Not shocking but well crafted.

MoritzF (8250) - Bochum, GERMANY - FEB 15, 2009
(swing top bottle, purchased at the brewery) Almost clear, deep golden colour with a short creamy white layer. Sweet (cara-)malty and nutty aroma with flowery hoppy notes and loads of spices (anise, coriander). Toast-malty and distinctively nutty taste with light spicy notes. Medium-dry, sweet-bitter, slightly toasty and nutty finish with hints of flowery hops and light spicy notes (06.I.09).
