Douberd (2283) - Arnhem, NETHERLANDS - SEP 18, 2013
Bottle, 330 ml, into a tulip glass at home. ABV 6.2% Pale orange colour on the body, with a tall, white head sitting on top. Quite thick, it has a good retention and never collapses completely. It leaves light lacing around the glass. In the body really tiny bits and pieces are visible, floating around. Aroma is mostly malts, but there are also floral notes and some faint fruits one might say. Really nice taste, the malts are there but only to accompany for a while the fruity notes of this beer, and they retreat fast. The end result is fruits, a light bitterness and a very summer-like taste. Thin on the palate with good, soft carbonation and a nice dryness on the palate. Very tasty beer, the fruity notes reminded me of a good tripel or weizen.

Abijen (1472) - ’s-Hertogenbosch, NETHERLANDS - SEP 7, 2013
Pours a golden beer with a good white head. Smells fruity and malts. Tastes bit sweet and malts. Not really special. Lively carbo, thin body and a watery texture.

Bright golden colour, white head. Malty aroma, light hops, resin, European hops. Light bitter flavour, malts, biscuits, quite sweet. Bitter finish, European hops and malts. Bit light, almost like a pilsener.

Bosbouw (1237) - Gemonde, NETHERLANDS - JUL 15, 2013
Mooie heldere goudgele kleur. Volle witte schuimkraag. Weinig geur, iets van hop, tarwe en kruiden. Smaakt lekker fris, kruiden en een iets bittere nasmaak. Goede smaak, lijkt ook iets op pils.

ThirstyBird (1564) - Düsseldorf, GERMANY - JUL 12, 2013
Pours slightly hazy golden yellow with a creamy white head. Smell is floral, lightly fruity, a bit of spice. The taste is A nice balance between light caramel malt, crisp spicy hops, light fruit and a clean crisp and mildly dry finish with a distinct spicy aftertaste...clove and pepper. Body is light and the carbonation is tight and a tick above average. A nice and interesting brew.
