DutchDrebus (4815) - Oirschot, NETHERLANDS - JUN 7, 2012
Bottle thx to benzai. Slightly hazy orange, golden colour with a small white head. Smells herbs, green twigs and malts. Mostly herbs i dont like. Tastes malty, fresh, some iron.. Not bad! Quite decent taste, nothing very special or complex. Good carbo, thin to medium body.

sayravai (4691) - Helsinki, FINLAND - MAR 5, 2009
(Draught@One Pint Pub, Helsinki) Very hazy darkish amber with a small, creamy and lasting head. Quite fruity and yeasty aroma with slight vegetably hints. Smoothly fruity flavor with caramely maltiness and yeast, plus - again - some vegetables, diacetyl, and ashy hints. A slightly unclean, but fruity and otherwise ok Belgian ale.

Alengrin (3401) - BELGIUM - OCT 3, 2014
Amber ale since 2009 from Nieuwhuys in Hoegaarden, with yellowish white, coarse head and orangey amber colour with medium fizz. Fruity character, peach, coriander, caramelly and nutty malts, mild herbal hop bitterishness in the finish. Rather unremarkable but balanced.

Douberd (3298) - 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.
