Saeglopur (1116) - Vienna Woods, AUSTRIA - JUL 18, 2015
330 ml bottle shared by Geiserich at RB Tasting Linz, thanks!
Orange, cloudy body, with floating particles and a big, creamy, off-white head.
Aroma of citrus, apricot, tropical fruits, grains.
Tastes of yeast, grapefruit, grass, some pine, orange zest, slight tropical fruits, grains.
Light mouthfeel, with a soft carbonation.
Finishes very bitter, dry, zesty, grassy, yeasty.

Very nice for this ABV. The nose is lovely, very fruity, taste is too much dominated by the bitterness and yeast for me. Overall one of the better low alc beers I’ve had.

Werckmeister (981) - Vienna, AUSTRIA - JUL 18, 2015
330ml bottle at Austrian RB Meeting in Linz shared by Geiserich, many thanks. BB 12/2015. orange cloudy color, small off-white head. smells of hops, citric notes, light pines, lightly grapefruity, some grains, light sweetness. light body, soft carbonation, light mouthfeel. tastes citric, grains, grass, pines, herbs, some bread, some spices. longlasting herbal bitterness with some citric notes. quite good, lovely smell, as expected taste is rather light, but obfuscated by a quite strong herbal bitterness. taste is a bit too bitter and also has a light unclean note. But lovely for the low ABV.

Douberd (3291) - Arnhem, NETHERLANDS - JAN 5, 2015
(Emelisse Innovation Serie: 2.5) Bottle 330 ml at home, served into a glass tankard, ABV 2.5% Deep orange colour on the body, lots of bubbles stuck on the glass’s walls while few more rising to the top. Slightly hazy body, small but thick white ehad, wiht very good retention, leaving medium lacing on the glass. Nice hoppy aroma, some laurel, herbs, interesting. Taste is also herbal, laurel, oregano maybe? Quite floral too, the malts are well hidden for the most part but every now and then are becoming notable. Nicely bitter aftertaste. Medium thin body with good carbonation, and quite dry palate. I thought to have this while my other beer is coming to temperature but it turned out to be quite good in itself. Surely bits any radler.
