Douberd (1999) - Arnhem, NETHERLANDS - JUN 20, 2014
Stubby bottle at home. Poured into a tulip. ABV 5.8% Very deep orange colour on thebody, clear, with a big enough white head sitting on top. Good retention, light lacing on the glass. Aroma of grains, nuts, light malts. Sweet malty taste, again very nutty, hay, bread. Medium thin body, good carbonation, seems a bit high at moments. Overall okay, nothing special.

MarcoDL (1974) - NETHERLANDS - APR 21, 2014
Yeasty version of a Speciale Belge. Caramelised malt, sweet metallic taste, with some mild fruits. Mwoah.

77ships (3530) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - FEB 20, 2014
33 cl. bottle @ home. Procured from Willems. BBF 16/07/2015. Hazy dark orange, solid white head. Nose is thick BE yeast, darker honey, caramel, sugar, thick malty with herbs, decent start. Tastes of sweet mellow honey, nuts, touch herbal, brown sugar, herbs, warming, touch boozy, doesn’t come entirely together but definitely nicer than the score would indicate on RB. Not on par with my introduction to the brewery “Alpaïde”.

Fin (7244) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - FEB 12, 2014
Bottle from Dranken Geers, Oostakker, Gent, consumed at home on Wednesday 12th February 2014. Pours hazy dark gold with slim white head. Clean slightly spritzy nose with a little spice, a little bland is my first impression. It’s fine, a tiny bit thin and lacking maybe, but absolutely fine. Sweetish typically Belgian in many respects but very safe. A6 A4 T6 P3 Ov12 3.1

tderoeck (4371) - Gent, BELGIUM - NOV 7, 2012
25/X/2012 - 33cl bottle from Willems (Grobbendonk) @ home - BB: 14/VI/13 (2012-1175)

Clear orange to amber beer, big fluffy irregular head, pretty stable, adhesive, leaving a nice lacing in the glass. Aroma: bit fruity, lots of oranges, bit sweet, some citrus, little soapy. MF: ok carbon, medium body. Taste: orange peel, lots of it! Little bit of caramel, fudge, but not really sweet, buttered whole grain toast, some citrus. Aftertaste: citric hops, some caramel, orange peel, little bitter. Ok, but not as good as the other beers from this brewery I had before.
