Popped off the cap and picked up some green grass notes that surprised me at first, but they quickly faded into some funk barnyard notes. Then I start looking up to the light .... seeing a thin cloud with in the body that feels thin on the palate because of some candy sweetness. Appearance is a bit mind boggling to the taste so extra points for that. Otherwise if filtered it may look and smell a bit like a wine cooler (ducks) Just a bit too candy sweet. thinnly sticky. dry finish. The unfiltered is nice and the funk makes up for any lameness. As it warms up to the ending nice little sips of complexity between malts and hops taking over the sweet.

Bottles at the Hotel Majestic Pool bar (5/26-28) & also sampled at the brewery (5/28/15)
Amber colored beer with a beige head. Caramel and toast. Some light hop notes as well. Decent mouthfeel. Solid, but a little overly malty.

Douberd (3187) - Arnhem, NETHERLANDS - MAR 24, 2015
(Santorini Red Donkey) Bottle 330 ml at home, served into a glass tankard, ABV 5.5% Deep red to amber colour on the body, clear at first. Small off-white head, thin, with okay retention, leaving light lacing on the glass. Aroma of grassy hops, light caramel, grains. Taste is also grainy, nutty, some faint metallic notes on the finish, again grassy hops, hints of citrus and fruity touches. Nicely bitter. Medium thin boddy, carbonation is on good levels. Not bad at all, easy to drink amber ale.
