Watery and deceptive. Never once tastes like the 7,5 % it is until you get up. There is some grass, some fungus. Its not bad, fits into what I know of Dortmunders quite well, I just never liked the slightly thin and watery taste of it. Bottle from Berts Bierhuis in Utrecht.

Gedronken bij dutchdrebus uit de fles na ons eigen gebrouwen biertje die wel beter was :p Dit is een goudkleurig helder bier, gist ligt bovenop, wel een zoet en genoeg koolzuur.

Benzai donated me a bottle. Thx! Clear pale yellow colour with little to no head. Smells malty, hay, natural. Tastes a bit watery, grainy, malty, hay, barnyard. Not too bad. Bit thin and watery palate, wouldnt have guessed its 7.5% abv.

33cl bottle. Yellow-orange colour, minimal white head. Aroma is hops, hay and wheat. Taste is a little bit sweet, malty and strong wheat flavour. Finish is slight bitter, medium long. Light to medium body. Not bad, but I expected more.

Countbeer (6241) - Best of E-Town mit 2 Brauhausen, NETHERLANDS - SEP 29, 2011
Bottle: Medium pretty vast white head on top of a darker yellow golden colored beer. Smell malts, spices, hint of fruit. Taste hops, malts, herbs/spices, hints of yeast, fruit and sweets. Hoppy herby malty light spicy and light warm aftertaste. Low to medium carbo, medium body, soft mouthfeel and a light watery/creamy texture.

JorisPPattyn (9603) - Ursel, BELGIUM - JUL 27, 2011
Medium to good, dissipating, light-yellowish head over metallic golden beer. Caramelly nose, maltsugars, some green herbs, faintly grassy. Quite sweet, with just a point of neutral to light-bitterish in the finish. Again maltsugars predominant. Feels quite carbonated; slick, grist/patly dissolved sugars texture. Mineral water quality. Quite acceptable - as a Heller Bock (7.5% ABV!). The commercial caption ("highly hopped") fits it like a flag a dredging boat. Talk about renewing an old acquaintance - probably one of the first Dutch beers I ever tasted!
