UPDATED: JUN 4, 2013 11/V/13 - 75cl bottle from De Hopduvel (Gent) @ Bouvier’s place - BB: 10/X/## (ink of the year notation was smudged and not readable) (2013-461)

Note: this is pretty weird. I was sure I had rated this beer long ago. More even: I’ve had it on several occasions, and did not take notes, because I thought I had already rated it.

Clear orange beer, aery off-white head, unstable, non adhesive. Aroma: sweet, honey, sugary, spices, sweet malts, fruity touch, orange peel. MF: ok carbon, medium body. Taste: sweet start, citrus, grains, bread, bitter touch. Aftertaste: orange peel, alcohol sweetness, little bitter, honey, bready, sugar.

Bottle at home, this rating is more for my own list, I have had this beer earlier this year before I started taking notes. What I remember: different beer than others, nice.

I like this. It has a slightly funky first bite to it, and it maintains the strange flavor throughout. A sweetness sits there as well. Nice.

Douberd (2584) - Arnhem, NETHERLANDS - JAN 17, 2013
30 ml stubby bottle, poured into a tulip glass. I got this into an organic goods grocery store. ABV 7,5%. Pours a nice orange gold colour, with a thick head of two fingers, good retention and light lacing left behind. Slighty hazy. Strong gale aroma, very unique. Some light alcohol smell. Probably there are other aromas too but gale overpowers everything else. What a fantastic taste! Quite bitter and hoppy, the gale once again very notable, making it extra refreshing. The alcohol very nicely conceiled. Medium dryness on the palate, medium to full body and just enough carbonation. Overall a great beer, with a very unique taste, at least I, haven’t met before a beer that tastes like that. Highly recommended.

laiti (5954) - Helsinki, FINLAND - DEC 27, 2012
33 cl bottle @ Gastropub Tuulensuu. Rated on 14.08.2010
Aroma is surprisingly light with herbs and floral notes. Flavour is a bit unpleasant with harsh bitterness and strong herbs (probably the Bog Myrtle himself). No wonder they use hops nowadays…

vickey9 (543) - Brussels, BELGIUM - DEC 14, 2012
UPDATED: JAN 25, 2013 Hazy blond, firm white foam. Nose is strange probably because of an announced Myrica. Taste is rather sweet. Body is a medium, texture a bit watery. Palate is tincture. An experimental beer. B@H

paulvanpelt (352) - Reusel, NETHERLANDS - DEC 11, 2012
UPDATED: OCT 26, 2013 Nevelig, goudgeel met stevige witte kraag. Bier heeft een bijzonder aroma door de toevoeging van gagel. Kruidig, bitter. Een fris en licht biertje, ondanks de 7,5%, ideaal voor de zomer.

bu11zeye (11971) - Frisco (Dallas), Texas, USA - DEC 6, 2012
(750ml bottle) Pours a clear golden body with a small white head. Aroma of yeast, apple, oxidation notes, and butterscotch. Flavor of caramel, creamer, white chocolate, fruit, cardboard, herbs, and grass. Unpleasant.

Blond, hazy beer. It has a fresh, fruity and hoppy taste, with some hints of herbs and honey. A notable blond, due to the use of gale (Myrica gale). It gives the beer a unique taste!
