maledictum (646) - Pyongyang, NORTH KOREA - NOV 11, 2014
This beer poured a golden color and formed a huge bubbly white head that left circular lace. A huge amount of carbonation is present. An aroma of malt, citrus and spices such as clove. A flavor of clove, slight bit of grain with a hint of the alcohol. The finish is light and a touch tangy no doubt reflecting the carbonation present

VDuquerroux (400) - Airvault, FRANCE - OCT 31, 2014
Bottle, 33cL. Home. A clear orange to yellow beer with a medium white head; poor retention. Fruity aroma (prune), caramel, herb. Medium sweet, light bitter. Medium to full body, medium texture (not silky), good carbonation, sweet warming finish. Overall, pleasant fruity aroma, round and warming.

limski (5) - NORTHERN IRELAND - OCT 20, 2014 does not count
Bottle poured into chalice, head retreated to simple shoreline. Orange blonde, not very lively with a slight vanilla edge to the orange, citrus aroma. Well balanced hoppy taste, little sweetness, little bitterness, easy to drink. Medium bodied, slightly oily, average carbonation with a fairly long bitter aftertaste. This is a beer for the pub, not sitting home alone. If my phone rang now I could leave this, preferably for a blonde.

Dourado turvo com espuma duradoura e branca. Aroma adocicado, caramelo e moca que reproduz na boca. Boa avidez e carbonatação. Corpo médio. Apesar do grau alcoólico o mesmo não aparece.

Gran bella triple, profumi floreali molto luppolosi, con note fruttate mielose. Al gusto risentiamo un leggero erbaceo ma predomina il dolce mieloso anche se non stanca buon corpo. ---Rated BY Italianbeer85

Syfher (115) - Brussels, BELGIUM - OCT 15, 2014
Blond trippel, bottle of 33cl. Great taste and palate of bubble-gum (I swear), awfull appearance by the way. In fact, we’re in front of a nice beer, who deserve her medals.

rdb84 (126) - NETHERLANDS - OCT 8, 2014
Bottle. Pours a slightly orange Pilsner color. Aromas are apple cider, sweetness that resembled apricots with a hint of strawberry, slight booziness. Taste is relatively fruity with a sligthly bitter and sour kick. Fruitiness resembles perfectly ripe pears. Although the fruitiness is quite mellow and agreeable, it is a bit too much for me. Aftertaste is very dry. Good beginners Tripel though.

zimbo (611) - SCOTLAND - OCT 4, 2014
Been 25 years since I had this last. Big yellow glow. Initially deep fluffy glossy white head. Structurally very linear with a firm acidic gasoline almost champagne like quality. But no biscuit. Heady and interesting but it doesn’t grab your heart.

kraddel (3623) - some beerplace, BELGIUM - OCT 2, 2014
Bottle Pours clear blonde, small to good white head. Smell is fruity ( yeasty ) and bit bitter. Too much carbonation . Taste is bit bitter, malty , sharp , some hidden fruity aspects from the yeast . Bit sweet. Aftertaste is bitter, with a sugar touch as well . I lately try to concentrate on the subtile aspects that makes beers like this popular, and get them a very high score indeed . But I still think they’re borning, overcarbonated, 15-in-a-dozen ,.... Still no fan I’m afraid ... One day , perhaps ?
