Douberd (2098) - Arnhem, NETHERLANDS - APR 12, 2014
Bottle 330 ml at home, into a tulip. ABV 8% Very dark orange golden colour on the body, a bit hazy, with a tall and slighty off-white head on top, with average retention,leaving light lacing on the glass. Aroma of malts, sugar, honey, peach, a touch of yeast. Taste is sweet, peaches, apricot, the malts and honey again present. There is a strong enough bitterness on the finish and the aftertaste to balance the initial sweetness. Medium body, soft carbonation, mildly dry palate. Overall quite good, better than the one X version.

rikstar (688) - NETHERLANDS - APR 10, 2014
0,33l fles,eerst de keuken gedweild voor dat ik aan het bier kon beginnen. Diep oranjebruine kleur met een crème schuimkraag. Geur is tikkeltje alcohol en een zuurtje als van een geuzebier maar minder sterk, gecombineerd met een zoetje heeft het wat weg van jam. Ook in de smaak komt het zuurtje naar voren en een beetje naar voren, verder is hey bier eat vlak van smaak geeft iets weg van sinaasappelschillen. Beperkte afdronk, gistachtige nasmaak. Had hier meer van verwacht.

Flaska. Medena farba s lahkou penou, ktora vsak rychlo opadla. Vona ovocna, karamelova s lahkym alkoholovym zatahom. V chuti je na zaciatku citit prilis vela sladovosti, neskor alkohol a karamel. V pozadi uplne lahka horka dochut.

minutemat (1387) - Ford, Shropshire, ENGLAND - APR 3, 2014
330ml bottle from Les Crepes de Sophie, Shrewsbury. Mild sour character with ripe fruits, lemon zest and some tripel-esque yeast. I’m not the biggest sour fan but this is smooth and drinkable.

hobsch (420) - Cologne, GERMANY - MAR 25, 2014
Bottle 0.33l. Extrem gusher. What came out of the bottle after minutes of foam was murky orange with an off white head. Aroma is sour, apples, unripe plums, metallic. Taste is light bitter, medium sweet, medium sour, some honey, apples, unripe berries. Aftertaste is slightly sour, bit boozy. Not my cup of.... but still drinkable.

Draft at Eight Ball. Pours a clear amber color with a medium sized off white/yellow head. The aroma and flavor has sweeter malt, honey, fruity, mild resiny hops in the front, floral nose, some Abbey Tripel notes. I didn’t really enjoy this one much.
