TaxiDriver (1847) - Stadland, - APR 18, 2009
Bottle. Sweet smell of malt and light alcohol, bread, light caramel. A very large light brown creamy head with a long duration. The body is clear and red-brown. The taste is malty and of chocolate. The beer is creamy with normal carbonation and a medium strong body.

Hopverdju (1642) - BELGIUM - DEC 30, 2017
Bruin bier met rode gloed en ecru/beige schuimkraag. Geur: Licht zoet, fruitig, karamel/bruine suiker, ietwat muf, gist en wat hoppig. Smaak: bitterzoet, karamel, fruitig, wat alcoholisch en ietwat metaal. Medium volmondig. Goede koolzuurprikkel. Afdronk: bitterzoet. Dit is echt nog traditioneel "Old school" streekbier.
