Douberd (2221) - 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.

DeanF (1707) - Nunavut, CANADA - SEP 3, 2010
Big head, dark amber colour, goes well in a Belgian chalice. Aroma of malts, some witbier notes, some barley. Taste is a smooth mix of malts, a little caramel. Palate could be stronger. Good for drinking lots of.

diabel (1607) - Aarschot, BELGIUM - MAR 30, 2012
Hazy amber body with an off-white rocky head. Aroma of fine malts, bit alcohol, ... very warming and complex, Moderately sweet, lightly bitter flavour. Very well balanced. Lovely.

Niets wereldschokkends, maar gewoon een bier met een goede smaak aan. Aan te raden om eens te proberen
