caesar (5201) - Bunnik/Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - AUG 6, 2014
Bottled from Veluwse Heidebrouwerij, BB 12 2015, large sample, served in a trappist glass. Pours a slight hazy golden to orange color, with a big loud sssshing cola kind of head. Seriously, its alive! I have never seen anything like this, except for soda pops, but never this long. In the end, only a small bit of lacing remains. Aroma of orange, spicy yeast, slight high fusels, spices. Bit sweet in taste, quite watery. Bit sticky palate. Finishes with a bit cola light. After swallowing, it seems the boiling of the co2 continues. Wow, Im definitely not going to finish this. Flavor is not that bad, except for watery light soda pop. But carbonation makes it impossible to drink. Drain pour after three sips and Im still burping half an hour later on.

Bullit (4025) - Burgos, SPAIN - APR 8, 2014
Tap @ brewpub. Slightly hazy golden colour with an off-white head. Nose is honey, grainy, malty, light fruity, some sweetness of the honey. Flavour is light malty, fairly dry, bit of grass or vegetables. Medium to high carbonation. A bit harsh. Finish is fairly dry.

PotjeBier (1729) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - DEC 9, 2013
33 cl (well...) bottle a home, thanks Santa. 5.5% on label. Gusher. After cleaning up the kitchen there was still enough left. Murky golden or light amber color. Aroma’s of honey, yeast, sweet fruit. Bready malts and slightly herbal retronasal. Flavor is moderate sweet, malty. Body is light to medium. Flavor doesn’t last, not bitterness (or other flavors) in the finish. OK-ish.

tricksta_p (1185) - Steenwijk, NETHERLANDS - OCT 2, 2013
Pours a hazy yellow/orange with a big head that disappears quickly. Sweet aroma of malts and honey. Not very complex, but a nice brew neverheless.

Douberd (2332) - Arnhem, NETHERLANDS - OCT 2, 2013
Bottle 330 ml, bought at the brewery. Poured into a tulip glass. ABV 5.5% on the label. Pours a deep orange golden colour with lazy activity in the body and a big white head on top. Average retention, leaves a ring of foam around the glass and light lacing around it. Aroma is grainy with band-aid and light medicinal alcohol that gets better as it warms up. Taste is nice and yeasty, also a bit grainy. Sweet. The honey notable on the aftertaste. Medium thin body, fizzy carbonation. Overall quite nice.

sebletitje (6743) - Enghien, BELGIUM - AUG 12, 2013
75cl bottle courtesy of benzai @ RBBSG II. Orangée moyen, col blanc fin. Arôme de grains épais, caramel avec un bouquet houblonné très modéré avec l’ajout de miel qui vient relever un peu un bouquet qui reste assez neutre. Palais est malté, léger sucré, fruité moyen avec une fin de bouche rappelant pas mal d’autres bières hollandaises. Le miel a ce côté organique typique sur une petite note maltée encore ici neutre, entre cara pâle.
