MichaelAwesome (2956) - Wanne-Eickel, GERMANY - DEC 29, 2012
Bottle shared with McTapps and bought at a tour in Roermond, NL. Pours in (of course) amber with a slight yeasty belgian yeast nose. Bit sweet in the taste with some warming caramel notes. Number from Hertog Jan so far and worth a second try,

McTapps (2955) - Ruhrgebiet, GERMANY - DEC 28, 2012
By far the best Hertog Jan until now. Bottle shared with MichaelBruch. Deep and clear dark golden colour with low head. Nose is malt. Taste of low malt, mild hops, ripe grains and fresh grass. Refreshing, easy to drink.

Martinus (2630) - Nijmegen, NETHERLANDS - DEC 5, 2012
Orange golden colour, white head. Aroma of banana, quite fruity, malts. Rather sweet flavour, malts, firm yeast profile. Sweet malty finish, mais and hops.
Not bad, just not great either.

stevoj (1699) - Boise, Idaho, USA - DEC 4, 2012
Sweet and light (as in watery mouthfeel) for a Belgian style. Small creamy head and clear dark golden in color. Aroma is malty, Taste is lightly of malt with lingering sweetness. Needs some work...

Douberd (1688) - Arnhem, NETHERLANDS - NOV 18, 2012
Poured from the standard Dutch bottle of 300 ml. Colour is dark yellow, with lots of bubbles rising, and a one finger head. Smell is of corn and hops. Taste is pleasant, barely noticeable bitter, certainly not as much as I was expecting fromm the description on the bottle, and a bit metallic. Mouthfeel is medium thin bodied, dry, average carbonation. Overall, not bad. Calling it a premium beer (oerbier) though.. I think not.

Bottle at Locus Publicus, Rotterdam
Deep blond color, clean. It’s a quite simple beer with a light honeyish and cereal touch; ordinary bitterness; paper/corn final.
