Douberd (2481) - Arnhem, NETHERLANDS - AUG 28, 2013
Bottle, 750 ml, at home. Poured into a snifter after a short battle with the stubborn cork. ABV 6.2% Appearance is a dark brown beer, with some ruby shades when hold against the light. A very thin line of beige foam forms the head on this beer, with low retention. Aroma is sour, wine vinegar, wood, peat, white unripe grapes. Taste is sour, highly acidic. Again notes of wood and peat, white grapes. Very dry on the palate and a tart at the same time. Low carbonation but nice medium thick body. Very weird beer, I thought it would be closer to a porter than to a sour ale but that’s not the case. A big bottle is a bit too much for me.

Bursts out of a corked bottle. Pours a dark brown beer with a good tan head. Smells orange. Tastes orange and some other things. Little sour. Bit too fizzy carbo. Dont know what to think of.

altonbrownd (3681) - Brussels, BELGIUM - APR 27, 2013
Bottle from De Molen online. Dark yeasty brown body with slight head. Nose is very sour of vinegar. Not at all what I expected. Taste is also very sour in the front, some fruits, it then sort of warms up but I miss what the others tasted. Perhaps a bad bottle?

Pours dark brown with very little beige head. Aroma is of roasted malt and chocolate. Flavour is roasted and a tad vinegary. Both aroma and flavour are sour.
