Full body - staying head - amber color with a spicy, malty palate that finishes very fruity with complex hoppy undertones.

brokensail (10645) - Orange County, California, USA - OCT 3, 2012
Cloudy golden orange pour with a white head. Kind of just a sugary nose without much complexity. Some citrus peel, yeast, and a mild clove spice note. Some fruity esters of pear and apple. The flavor is fairly fruity with the same pear and apple, as well as a lot of sweet sugar. Some bread notes, a bit of yeast, and light spice.

Shared a 33cl bottle. Pours an almost clear golden colour with a nice white head. Biscuit, yeast and spices in the Aroma. Average carbonation and medium body. Taste is medium sweet and medium bitter, probably more sweet. Overall, a nice beer but a bit boring.

adster (164) - HUNGARY - JUL 7, 2014
Szalmasárga színű főzet egy krémszerű habbal a tetején, mely ugyan nem tör az egekig, ám rendkívül stabil és hosszan tartó. Illata jellegzetes, kissé fanyar és enyhén szúrós, pezsgőhöz, almaborhoz hasonló. Íze az illatok által előirányzott módon kissé édeskésen, mézeskalácsos zamatokkal, enyhén alkoholosan indul, majd csatlakozik hozzá egy kellemesen savanykás jelleg egy csipetnyi almával gazdagítva, mely egy határozott, komlós végízben folytatódik, így alkotva egy rendkívül telt és igen hosszan megmaradó ízvilágot.

Bottle. Yet another fruity tripel, but this has sweet peaches, grain and a bitterness to balance. Nice.

Alpha10 (315) - Ontario, CANADA - MAY 15, 2014
2014/05/15 - Pours a hazy, orange/honey colour with a thick, foamy, white head that quickly reduces to a lingering surface film. Aroma is biscuit, Belgian yeast, mild funk, citrus, pineapple, bubblegum and spices. Taste is biscuit, orange, Belgian yeast, caramel, spices and alcohol with metallic and medicinal notes. Medium bodied with lots of sharp carbonation and a dry, warming finish. Pleasant enough, but I found it hard to get past the metallic and medicinal notes. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Icedwarf (270) - Etten-Leur, NETHERLANDS - APR 6, 2014
Donkergeel, helder bier met mooie schuimkraag en gemiddeld koolzuur. Smaak is bitter hoppis en iets zurig, appel. Blijft lang hangen. Smaak heeft veel weg van Duvel.
