jgb9348 (4661) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - AUG 19, 2013
Super cloudy golden and honey straw coloured body with a thin, two centimetre tall just off-white head. Aroma of yeast, coriander seed, curacao, hay, grass and some nice sweetness. Medium-bodied; Assertive yeast and grassy flavours with a little herbal note, some light sugars and a good dry lightly spicey finish. Aftertaste shows some yeast and sweetness, but the taste is relatively mild with only the light spices and dryness coming through - very nice - this is more of a saison and tripel blend with loads of alcohol. Overall, great to try and definitely worth getting if you can find it! I sampled this 33 cL bottle purchased from de HopDuvel in Gent, Belgium for €1,65 sampled in my hotel room here in Bruxelles, Belgium on 19-August-2013.

Thanks to bu11zeye for sharing this bottle. Golden pour with a white head. The aroma is full of wheat, yeast and biscuit malt. The flavor is similar with some biscuits, oranges, lemons and wheat. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

Douberd (2091) - Arnhem, NETHERLANDS - JUL 14, 2013
Bottle at home, 330 ml, into a tulip glass. ABV 9%. Light golden orange colour, clear body. Tall head sitting on top, white, thick and soapy. Excelletn retention and veautiful lacing on the glass. Great aroma, fruity, yeast, a bit of spices, some dough as well. Taste is also great since it basically follows the aroma. Nice fruity notes, some yeast, spicy but just a tad bit. The alcohol is there but it is hardly notable. Nice bitterness on the aftertaste too, with good duration. Medium to thick body, soft carbonation but on good levels. Pleasanlty surprised by this one, I wasn’t expecting it at all. Very drinkable too and quite sessionable besides the high alcohol. Very tasty!

Appearance attracts a cloudy yeasty and amber. Velvety white foam invites you to explore the beer. Durable foam to give the beer’s appearance. The aromatic fragrance is a little bit starch. In spite of this fragrance to conquer yeast, malt and spices. Soft citrus fades as soon as caramel malt and spicy alcoholic heat from the road. Caramel maltiness and yeast spiciness to hide the lingering alcohol heat. The whole beer is hiding alcoholic and easy to drink.
