Martinus (4721) - Baarle-Nassau, NETHERLANDS - NOV 11, 2014
Brown colour, no real head. Aroma of wood, berries, red fruit. Light sour flavour, malts, berries. Finish red fruit, sour notes. Not your typical Dubbel, and my first beer by Gaverhopke, it turns out.
(from 33cL bottle @ weekly tasting, Oirschot. Thanks for sharing, Benzai!)

Alengrin (5791) - BELGIUM - OCT 17, 2014
The brown beer from the original Gaverhopke (under Eric Ameye). Loose, off-white, unstable head, deep cloudy bronze colour. Aroma like the Twaalf (also in its original form, that is), but hoppier and less alcoholic, with burnt rubber and rotten egg ruining everything. Less sweet and thinner palate than the Twaalf (dito) with stronger carbo; caramelly with some floral hops in the finish, but far too little to balance out the sweetness. Clearly this and the Twaalf were inspired by Westvleteren 8 and 12, but in terms of quality the difference could hardly be more painful.

Countbeer (6599) - Best of E-Town mit 2 Brauhausen, NETHERLANDS - FEB 22, 2014
Bottle: Past BB: Served in a Chouffe glass:
Small beige to off white foamy head on top of a hazy red ish brown colored beer.
Aroma is bad, really bad: oat, soap, malt, toast and nutty. Smelly, unbalanced... I am aftaid to taste this...
Flavours of malts, toast, watery prunes, yeasty, light bitter, unbalanced vinous, oat and nutty flowers... Unbalanced. This is nasty.
Aftertaste is an unbalanced mix of oat, malts, nuts and old dusty flowers.
Low carbo, creamy mouthfeel, just medium bodied and a creamy texture.
Unbalanced. Nasty!

Pours a hazy medium amber. Aroma is lightly malty, hoppy, yeasty. Flavor is moderately sweet, alcoholic, roasty dark.

bu11zeye (13239) - Frisco (Dallas), Texas, USA - OCT 17, 2011
(33cl bottle) Pours a hazy deep amber-brown body with a small beige head. Aroma of chocolate, grain, nuts, yeast, raisins, stale graham crackers, and grass. Flavor of vinous, light vinegar, raisins, and yeast.

tderoeck (10344) - Gent, BELGIUM - MAY 16, 2011
16/05/2011 33cl bottle @ home - BB: SEPT/2012 (2011-212)

Cloudy brown beer with purple glare. Off-white crackling head, falls back to a few mm of creamy light beige foam. Aroma: tart apples, green apple skin, a bit fruity, some spices (pepper, ginger). MF: good carbon, light to medium body. Taste: sour apples (pretty predictable from the smell), lemony, a bit of caramel, slightly sweet touch, some lactobacillus. Aftertaste: turning pretty tart, lemony, but also some wood tones and some hop or bitter spices. On warming up, chocolate and tangerine is also detected. Well, apparently the infections of the beer are their "style", and in this beer it works (sort of) but I’m still uncertain whether to like it or not.

meerbier (1474) - Pijnacker, NETHERLANDS - DEC 25, 2010
[email protected] Odd spices in the aroma that I really don’t like. Gusher, cloudy, beige head, good lace. Sweet, no hops, molasses and those spices again. Full and sticky. Odd flavours, strange stuff, drain pour.

KyotoLefty (10731) - Kyoto, JAPAN - JUN 11, 2010
Dark brown with a tall, fine, pillowy head. Dry aroma of dark fruits, light caramel, and a slightly sour tang. Inviting and original. There is also something almost tropical in the nose! Tangy, fruity flavor with caramel and chocolate, blueberry. Rather sour, verging slightly on an old bruin. Dry, clean and very tasty. Love it.

MoritzF (10141) - Ottobrunn, GERMANY - MAR 14, 2010
(bottle, 33cl) Hazy, dark amber colour with a big and beige frothy head. Sweet and moderately sour, also slightly dusty toast-malty aroma with notes of citrus, red berries and shy notes of caramel. Moderately sweet and sour flavour, medium bodied with a surprisingly soft carbonation. Cara-malty, slightly sour-doughy and fruity taste with a slightly sweet and sourish fruity finish. Cannot say if the acidic character is intended. 14.III.10
