COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Starting point for this beer was our historic Koyt beer with 45% malted oats. We made it a bit stronger, added a some pale ale malt, a Styrian Goldings whirlpool hop and had some oak chips in the aging process. This is our interpretation of old durable Dutch ships beer; the name means ’Sailors’ and was found in old references about beer.

oh6gdx (20239) - Vasa, FINLAND - JUL 19, 2014
Bottled (backlog, from Biernavigatie). Hazy goldeny orange colour with small fluffy head that leaves lace. Aroma is gluelike sweetness along with some fruits, yeast and mild herbal notes. Flavour has the same elements in a good balance, with a slight alcoholic sting to it as well.

Douberd (2072) - Arnhem, NETHERLANDS - DEC 25, 2013
33o ml bottle at home, into a tulip glass. ABV 6.2% Bright golden orange colour on the body, crystal clear, with a tall snow white head. Thick, with very good retention, leaving medium lacing as it goes down. Aroma is sweet and malty, with something that reminds me of honey, herbs, wood. Taste of malts, mildly sweet. Floral notes, hops, a touch of brett-like sourness on the finish. Medium thin body, average carbonation, dry palate. Overall an okay beer, but nothing very interesting.

TBone (12469) - Pori, FINLAND - DEC 2, 2013
Bottled 330ml, thanks Bierkoning
Slightly hazy golden-amber color, small white head, some lace. Fruity sweetish aroma. Light to medium-bodied. Fruity with some alcohol and light citrusy bitterness. Despite of traditional background and partly historic recipe, tastes very much like common Belgian blonde. Not too bad.

(Bottle, Café Derat, Utrecht, 25 July 2013) Pale amber colour with foamy, off-white head. Malty, hoppy nose with orange peel, apricots, toast and earthy hops. Malty, fruity taste with notes of grapefruit, dried apricots, citrus peel, toast and a generous bitterness with earthy hops in the finish. Medium body, quite dry. Well made and tasty. Nice one.

Flavours of herbs, spices, floral tones, grains, bitters, some malts, some grass, hay and plants, toast and floral bitters... Aftertaste is a mix of bitters, grains, spices-peppery and pilsmalts.

Fox brown colour, white head. Malty aroma, quite light, light hops, bit of caramel. Sweet flavour, malty, biscuit, light hops. Bit thin body. Malty finish, very short. Bit too light bodied for my liking.
