I don’t know what happened with this beer, but this the worst beer I’ve ever tasted, even though I’ve tasted some really nice beers from Rodenburg. The terra incognita didn’t score well in my opinion, but this one smells like medicinal toothpaste. Lacks in any carbonation, only the appearance is ok. Really don’t know what has happened to this beer, but this shouldn’t be sold in the 1st place. This seems not due to any infection, but there should have been some more quality control here, and that’s unfortunate in this case.

Light haze on this deep amber beer, small pale cream colour head. Palate is light and semi dry with fine carbonation. Smooth malts, nice sweetish mellow bourbon and soft oaky sweetness. Light brett runs throughout, as does a lovely touch of sweet cherry. The brett turns slightly bitter before the smooth finish. Tasty and complex, it hides the abv pretty well.

caesar (5315) - Bunnik/Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - MAR 9, 2014
Bottled, batch TIBA - 135, BB 18 June 2025, large sample. Clear amber color, very short head, merely some lacing. Aroma of oak wood, apple, hint of vanilla, caramel, raisin, white wine, cognac. Quite interesting, not really what I expected, but still quite nice. Quite boozy flavor, some sweetness of caramel and vanilla, some bitterness, a hint of apply sourness. Again, quite different from my expectations, but a very nice sipper. Really fruity.

MonsterMagnet (324) - NETHERLANDS - FEB 20, 2014
Bottle. Fruits, oak, bourbon, vanilla, honey. No carbonation, but a great silky mouthfeel. Lingers for ages, yum! Not perfect, but i love it! It’s too expensive though...

Douberd (2584) - Arnhem, NETHERLANDS - FEB 1, 2014
Bottle 330 ml at home, poured into a snifter. ABV a whooping 12% Beautiful, especially when hold against the light, dark red to light brown colour on the body. Not much head but after a tall pour some big beige bubbles were formed on the surface, eventually coming together to form a thin line around the glass. Light lacing left behind. On the aroma lots of fruits, peaches, light apricot, light yeat too, a bit of wood and vanilla. Sweet taste with lots of grass, earth and wood. Very complex taste, every sip brings something else upfront. Grapes. Juniper berries, bitters. A bit of ash too. The list goes on. Nice bitterness on the aftertaste too, having slowly progressed from the initial sweetness, so it doesn’t come at once. Medium thin body, carbonation on very good levels. What a great beer, Rodenburg is becoming one of the dutch breweries to keep an eye on with every new release of theirs.
