MN Winter RB Gathering. Very nice ripe, tropical, and citrus fruits, as well as a nice dose of biscuity malt and a light yeaty spiciness. Very nice and well made beer.

Ethereal (2417) - Los Angeles, California, USA - MAY 31, 2008
Tashi’s house, 28/05/08. Bottle courtesy of Mes and Reakt. Cloudy orange with a spicy aroma. Very soft and smooth on the tongue. Packs the flavours of a blonde beer but also a decent amount of malt. Nice stuff.

Beltramelli (471) - Campinas, BRAZIL - JUN 2, 2008
A coloração é alaranjada. O creme bege é bastante consistente e medianamente persistente. De baunilha é o forte e agradável aroma. Na boca, a alta carbonatação é de textura macia e não compromete. No paladar, mais baunilha e um toque de maçãs verdes confere um surpreendente frescor. No acabamento, uma suave sourness e um leve amargor.

Doppelganger (1388) - Dry County, Arkansas, USA - JUL 21, 2008
Bottle, from cgarvieuk. Thanks Craig! Hazy but attractive copper/orange. Persistant butter colored head, lingering there patiently while I wait for the glass to warm up a bit. The smell of my parents back garden in spring: on one side, rhubarb stalks pushing up through the cool wet soil. On the other side, the compost pile begins to warm in the sun, a year’s worth of coffee grounds, leaves and grass clippings mouldering their way back to soil. Back inside, my mom bakes a pumpkin pie, and cinnamon and nutmeg waft outdoors, subtly perfuming the air... Dry rhubarb fruit flavor, with a big menthol mineral bite. Lingering tart prickly chalk. Messy and unfocused, but full of snap and life. A true farmhouse sort of beer, rustic and unsophisticatedly pleasing. Go on: call it a saison.

Blom (836) - Odense, DENMARK - JUL 26, 2008
Hazy orange with a monster for head. Lots of spicy coriander and fruits in the aroma. Uhm, it’s sooo refreshing! Sweet oranges, vanilla and biscuits make out the flavours of this wonderful amber ale.

nightrider (754) - encinitas, California, USA - SEP 21, 2008
Bottle from Kelk pub in Brugge. Cool amber, cloudy appearance with a white head. Sweetness on your nose. Complex flavors of fruit, malt, and some bitterness. Also a bit of earhy funkiness and tad undertone of sourness.

Beautiful opaque amber/red color with low head, oriented in sweet taste with classic "dubbel" beer notes, liquorice touch, caramel malt... Very good beer, with low alcohol level.
