Bottle in NL, BB 17-08-17 so it was very fresh. Pours with the perfect triple style head which held the entire 7 min it took to drink it. Aroma was barely there but the taste was superb. My new favorite triple. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Kauge (1037) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - DEC 21, 2015
Bottle. BB 30/09/2016. The liquid is clear golden with tiny bits floating around. Head’s big and rocky, retaining nicely and leaving strong lace. The aroma is as expected: yeasty, fruity, bananas and vanilla, with, at times, an estery burning zing from the foam. Tastes sweet, then surprisingly bitter. It’s a kind of herby bitterness I’d say, which makes for a nice overall effect together with the slight spiciness and dryness. Carbonation and body around medium. The ABV is not exactly hidden, but not too apparent either. Does start to distract when warmer though. Both the aroma and taste are I’d say between 6 and 7, so I’ll just lower the overall instead. It’s pretty nice for a ’macro’.

SkillsFactory (369) - ITALY - DEC 6, 2015
Dorata carica opalescente, schiuma bianca di persistenza medio-bassa. Aroma di pesca e leggera banana, caramello e alcool. Al palato stesse note fruttate, leggeri chiodi di garofano, sempre caramellata. Corpo medio, medio-pieno, ben carbonata, un po' noiosa.

Hexenhetfield (6) - MEXICO - NOV 15, 2015 does not count
Aroma muy rico, la apariencia es algo turbia, el sabor es como frutal o a flores, se siente el alcohol en cada trago como en todas la cervezas belgas que e probado
