kook (2033) - Perth, Western Australia, AUSTRALIA - JUL 8, 2005
Cloudy light amber with a small white head. Fruity aroma, with some citric and sugar notes. Fruity start, with some citric almost sour notes in the finish. Light spices too. Very smooth feel. Nice.

ante (3374) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - JUN 26, 2005
Foggy dark yellow with a big lively white foam. sweet yeasty aroma of nectarines, candisugar with dry orangey undertone. Very yeasty flavour of white bread, oranges and manbo. Dense mouthfeel. Finishes rather dry of yeast and hops.

hawkshadow (107) - Rural Retreat, Virginia, USA - JUN 24, 2005
pours hazy yellow with lots of large particles. Mostly diminishing white head, some lacing. Aroma is weak, mainly of yeast (musty). Initial taste has strong carbonation, yeast again is a little overpowering, with some hop bitterness. Aftertaste is a little sweet with a nice bitterness lasting. Not very inspiring, but good. My least favorite Rocs.

Dorqui (2105) - Brescia, ITALY - JUN 16, 2005
Compact and clinging head, fairly good persistence. Yellow fraught color, cloudy e dense. Decided and alcoholic scent. Malt and cellar notes. Chilly and gentle flavour, much strong in the end. Moderate bitter with a fairly good alcoholic vein.

beerinmarch (2830) - Washington, USA - MAY 30, 2005
From the bottle this pours a cloudy orange with a tall strong white head. Lots of spice and yeast in the nose. Starts with a nice quick sweetness, finishing with a citrus clove note. The very fizzy carbonation brings out the spices well and a little bit of yeast lingers in the finish.

MesandSim (7119) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 28, 2005
a sim rate: The smell is soapy and overly alcoholic. There’s also definitely clove and orange in the aroma. It’s extremely cloudy...almost like a wheat beer. It tastes similar to a wheat beer too, only stronger-tasting. The taste is also slighty soapy. Alcohol hits you in the finish. Quite thick and almost syrupy palate. Overall, nice beer to sink, and a nice strong blonde as an alternative to its weaker blonde colleagues.

NYHarvey (2153) - New York, New York, USA - MAY 25, 2005
Straw yellow in color leaning to plae orange. Smelled strange like if Budweiser brewed a BIG pale lager. Hints of sweetness in the smell too. The smell had me ready to be upset, but classic Belgian flavors-spicy sweetness sparkle in the back of your throat. Not a wower, but it still is very pleasing to drink.

footbalm (1219) - Western Minneapolis Suburbs, Minnesota, USA - MAY 24, 2005
Has a real funny color,Light golden with a lot of floaties,murky to.I love a brew that looks like it has substance.The ueast blend here gives it sour fruity aroma that it like a cross between lemonade and plums.Spicey,aromatic-wise and lemony very carbonated on the tongue.Very average for a Belgian tripel.

CampbellWilson (533) - SCOTLAND - MAY 21, 2005
Bottle from Open All Hours, Keswick. Halfway through the pour this deposited a big glob of protein into the glass, with an audible ’plop’. This seems to be a common problem with des Rocs beers so I will rate on regardless. Cloudy Yellow/orange with lots of sediment floating about. Aroma of spice, fruit, yeast. You can feel the sediment in the mouth and this was slightly offputting for me. I’ll re-rate if a better example comes my way.

Jukkabro (3484) - Tampere, FINLAND - MAY 17, 2005
Light orange color, cloudy appearance. Big white lasting head. Spicy, mildly fruity aroma with some alcohol. Medium to full bodied. Spices and mild yeast in flavor with medium alcohol and fruits. Aftertaste is dry with citrus, alcohol and mild pepper.
