8 %, and nicely hopped. Fruity from the yeast which gives a pleasant taste in the mouth.

33cl bottle from Knightly Spirits (Orlando, FL). Pours a dark golden color with thick and creamy off-white head. Good retention and lacing. Lively carbonation. Aroma is wheat, grain, sweet malt, ripe fruit, and candy sugar notes. Flavor is much of the same with sweet malty notes and a syrupy mouthfeel. Generally medium bodied with a smooth sweet finish. Nice ale.

Alengrin (2449) - BELGIUM - OCT 26, 2014
Tripel with yellowish white, moussy and somewhat rocky, stable head and deep ’old gold’ colour, clear but cloudy with deposit, including somewhat off-putting protein strings. Very estery aroma, apricot, banana, orange, coriander, white pepper, caramel, honey, floral hops. Fruity, pleasantly malt sweet palate, light spicy hints, yeasty, rounded and straightforward with light hoppiness in the end. Decent but nothing extraordinary, just another tripel - again.

Bottle Gusher Pours unclear blonde . Thnx to the gushing, you cannot pour this beer ( even withoud disturbing the yeast yourself ) for 5 cl , before you got yeastflakes . They settle slowly, but look awefull . Good white fluffy head Smell is yeasty , some dust ( no best by date on the bottle ) sweet , sweatfeet . . Good carbo Taste is pretty simple , sweet, some yeast, some malty tones . Soft , buttery mouthfeel . Mouthfeel also is ruined by those pieces , that are very easely loosened . Kinda dissapointed by this . Tastewise, its OK , but the scent is bad , and the appearance is just awefull.

Douberd (2600) - Arnhem, NETHERLANDS - JUL 26, 2014
Stubby bottle 330ml at home, poured into a tulip. ABV 8% Gusher. Hazy orange colour on the body, huge slighty off-white head on top, with low retention. Aroma of grains, yeast, butter. Taste also of grains, less butter but still there, light fruity notes, malts and notable alcohol, good bitterness on the aftertaste. Medium thin body, high carbonation. Overall okay, I’d like to retry this as it doesn’t seem to be at its best condition.

Bière blonde de 8 % abv, appelée ultra par pure fantaisie du brasseur. Couleur doré moyen. Apparence voilée avec levure en suspension (grand dégagement gazeux au décapsulage). Bulles moyennes et peu nombreuses en une colonne au centre. Mousse blanche un peu ternie, qui nappe à 1 mm. Arômes de camomille, babeurre, pointe de vanille, houblon amer, blé. 1ère bouche souple avec un bel équilibre malt/houblon et une amertume précise assez jolie. Arrière-bouche harmonieuse. 2ème plutôt sur le houblon, mais agréable, amertume fine. 3ème revient sur un malt assez prononcé et du houblon. Arrière-bouche bien faite. La longueur donne un côté plus fruité, mais descend sensiblement. La levure est lisse, fine, avec une pointe fumée. L’alcool est un peu curieux, et vient seulement sur la finale au moment où le niveau descend. La finale est très en dessous. CONCLUSION : une bière trop gazeuse à l’ouverture, qui tient une belle saveur sur les 1ères bouches puis s’épuise sur la longueur, avec un alcool très curieux qui ne fait pas son travail.

Hazy pale blond. Light bodied but tasty beer with a spicy edge. Quite a smooth creamy texture.
