Swaroga (1314) - Brussels, BELGIUM - OCT 19, 2013
33cl bottle. Cloudy yellow/orange with a big head. NOSE : spicy herbal and pepper aromas. Hay, bread with sugar, citrus zest. SIP : creamy texture with strong carbonation. Medium body. Flavors of grains and bread like are developing dominating sweetness. Not overwhelming though. It gets attenuated by citrus and spices dry and bitter notes. The end is getting a bit herbal and peppery even more. A bit sour too. Esters develop strong citrus peel like flavor. OVERALL : there is nothing revolutionary about it. It’s still a decent Belgian strong pale ale. But among so many other like that I don’t find anything to convince me to buy it again.

RexTalionis (2407) - FINLAND - OCT 18, 2013
Bottled. Golden in color with a foamy head. Burnt rubber and old leather in aroma. Weird. Later on some sweeter aspects appears. Taste is however a lot better with some sweetish and overripe fruity notes, even light boozyness is present. But still the aroma here is a bit disturbing.

Vells (652) - LATVIA - OCT 17, 2013
hmm.. this one seems quite thin, but in same time nicely balanced. Lemon, yeast and spices dominates. OK malty. Quite sweet with some notes of sour and bitter

Pringao_Toribi (241) - Oviedo, SPAIN - OCT 11, 2013
A classical tripel, a fine beer as all beer made in Belgium, but nothing special to flash above. Cap collectors: the cap is similar to the label, and read "Augustjin Grand Cru"

onceblind (4014) - Denver, Colorado, USA - SEP 22, 2013
Hazy full gold with a lasting bubbly/rocky head. Nose is sweet and fruity and estery with notes of bready yeast and apricot and grape and apple with an earthy sort of herbal note. Flavor is very estery with a large tropical/dusty bright fruity tone, lots of complex yeast flavors with a lot of peach/pear/grape flavors and a backing malt sweetness that finishes a little dusty yet sweet apricoty. Slight bitterness throughout. Quite sexy.

DCLawyer (1423) - Falls Church, Virginia, USA - SEP 18, 2013
Bottle->Trappist. Hazy pale gold with huge frothy white head. Aroma is sweet, with yeast, citrus, and dark fruit. Very good. Palate: velvety front followed by crisp carbonation. Taste is Belgian yeast, bright citrus and spices. Aroma far outshines the taste.

Trappist1 (475) - Diest, BELGIUM - SEP 17, 2013
Mat, donker blond van kleur. Neus is kruidig (tintje van kaneel?), licht romige body. Afdronk is zoetig, warm, volmondig met licht alcoholische nasmaak.

Standard strong Belgian blond beer. Body is tripel-like, with some extra spices and fruits.
