markschiedon (658) - NETHERLANDS - NOV 20, 2013
Not so special aroma, some citrus. Beer is golden yellow with a firm white head. Pretty carbonated. In the taste its mainly the hopbitter that is present. Not much more, maybe some spices. You wouldnt say it has 8% alcohol.

Douberd (5249) - Arnhem, NETHERLANDS - SEP 29, 2013
Bottle, 330 ml. Poured into a tulip glass at home. ABV 8% Pale golden yellow colour on the body, bright, crystal clear, with lots of activity in it. A huge white, soapy head sitting on top with great retention and thick lacing left behind as it collapses. Aroma of yeast, candy sugar, grass. Taste is bette, although also with lots of candy sugar and yeast, but at least there are some fruity and kind of sour notes to balance all the sweetness. Meduim thin body, average carbonation. Little dryness on the palate. Overall a quite average belgian ale, not impressed.

Blonde claire, effervescence moyenne-forte, la mousse nuageuse tombe en un col fin et persistant. Les malts caramel se mlangent rapidement une amertume moyenne o se mlent des notes dpices, de banane et de miel. Lgrement sche.
