UPDATED: DEC 4, 2012 Murky dark orange, small bubbly head. Dough, fennel seeds, fermented fruit. Nice. Smooth, alcoholic body and sharp sweet tones. Yes, lots of sugary sweetness but I like it. (At Pint Winterbier Festival 2012)

Bottled. Hazy deep orange/pale brown colour with a mediumsized white head, that leaves some lace. Aroma is toffee, some sweet fruits and mild alcoholic notes. Flavour is tropical fruits along with some bitterness and mild sweet malts and alcohol. Very simplistic as such, and the fruitiness really surprised me in a positive way. More like a Belgian Strong Ale than Quadrupel though...

Bottle. Gusher! Pours a murky brown beer with a big tanned head. Aroma has ripe fruits and loads of yeast. Flavor is very sweet, light alcoholic. Again full of yeasty, fruity esters. Not very impressive, but still enjoyable.

Douberd (4911) - Arnhem, NETHERLANDS - DEC 22, 2013
Bottle 330 ml at home, the 13% ABV version, poured into a trappist glass. Small off-white head. Body has a deep dark orange colour, moslty clear. The head has an okay retention considering it’s small size, big bubble islands left on the surface and a ring of lacing around the glass’s walls. Aroma is fruity, with peaches and apricots, sugar, quite sweet as an aroma, reminds me of..what? Fruit flavoured medicine somehow, or maybe vitamines. Not necessarily bad. Soem white grapes too, with a touch of tartness in it. Taste is malty, with grains, caramel, little bit of nuts, sugar, peaches. Some grapes again, tasting "dirty", like a homemade harsh wine, soil. The alcohol very well hidden as a flavour but notable as a warming feeling on the body and after a while as a buzzing feeling in the head. Still, quite complex. Body is medium, carbonation is okay. Dry on the palate but also kind of sticky. Overall a pretty decent and surely interesting beer. Klein Duimpje surprises me pleasantly lately with some of their brews.

Uncarbonated Port, sugar... pilsener malts, no alcohol! Fairly light bodied (drank it maybe too cold?) very drinkable

33 cl bottle. Gusher. Brown color with huge beige head. Aroma’s of sweet fruit (raisin, apricot), malt & alcohol. Sweet ’n’ fruity flavor. Rather full body, alcohol is quite well hidden, drinks pretty easily. Quite nice.

jmgreenuk (7836) - Kuala Lumpur, MALAYSIA - OCT 28, 2013
Bottle from ABC Beers, Den Haag. Poured a clear medium amber with a thin white head, lots of broken lace and low carbonation. The aroma is strong yeast, citrus fruit and big alcohol. The flavour is medium bitter which is rather surprising considering the ABV, with a thin bodied watery medicinal palate and a weak thin short bitter finish.
Earlier Rating: 12/4/2012 Total Score: 2.8
Bottle at a Ratebeer "sticky floor" tasting, Den Haag. Poured an orange reddish colour with a round white head and no lace. The aroma is fruity grapefruit and malt. The taste is bitter alcoholic and yeasty. A decent beer but highly carbonated.
