Benzai (14269) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - JUN 27, 2013
Draught @ De drie dorstige herten, Utrecht. Clear amber color, medium sized dense white head that leaves fair lacing. Don’t get a lot of aroma. Taste is malts, sweetish, a touch of herbs or spices. Not an IPA by far, but a decent Belgian ale I would say.

Tap @ Arendsnest. Light amber color. Tangerine and oily hops in the aroma. Light amber color. Firm oily flowery hopbitter flavor with tangerine and grapefruit. The influence of the use of American hops is noticeable. Clean and well built beer.

caesar (6682) - Bunnik/Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - JUN 29, 2013
Tap @ Drie Dorstige Herten, which was 7% alcohol. Hazy amber pour with a short slight off-white head. Typical de Hemel aroma, which comes from their house yeast. Slight spicy and with some orange and tangerine notes. Soft hoppy, some caramel malt. Slight sweet in taste, soft bitterness. Fits in the range of beer de Hemel makes and although they share some similarities between them, I quite enjoy them.

Borresteijn (6495) - Zaandam, NETHERLANDS - APR 24, 2009
On tap at Arendsnest as Rafael Lentebier. Slightly hazy amber colour, thin white head. Aroma is sweet, honey, malts, fruity and floral. Flavour is soft, honey sweetness, malty, light alcoholic, soft bitter finish. Very smooth and creamy mouthfeel, medium to fullbodied. This was more like a sweet heller bock than an IPA to me. Really good beer.
