Brandman (2059) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JUN 1, 2013
Semihazy golden body, white head. Aroma has sweet malt times two, very fruity yeast. Flavour is way too sweet but otherwise nice. Fruits alcohol and sweet malt. Very Nice Beer but there is so much more if this would be bit dryer. Too sweet tripel. I quite like this.

750 ml bottle. L13045. BB 09/14. From Italy. Courtesy of Brandman. The colour is deep golden. There's a small white head. The aroma is nice. Soda, mild Belgian yeast, some malt, mild sourness and a touch of yoghurt. Nice I say. The flavour is a... wait a minute... it's quite bad. Alcohol, malt and fruit juice. A total collapse after the really promising aroma. There's potential but it's not fully fullfilled. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

stevoj (2003) - Boise, Idaho, USA - MAY 11, 2013
75cl bottle courtesy of JustinK, batch # L13003. Very good attempt at a Belgian. Aroma and taste are spot on. Finish is very abrupt. Taste is butterscotch, caramel, toffee with velvety smooth mouthfeel. Nice job, Italy!

fiulijn (14319) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 13, 2013
Courtesy of Jesper; batch L11357 01/13
Cloudy golden color. Sweetish fruity aroma. Sweet flavor, good body strength, with low bitterness and plenty of fruits (yellow stone fruits and banana); light alcohol perception in the end. It has much less yeast character than the other beers from the same brewery.
Not bad, but it just reminds me of American attempts as Belgian styles.

77ships (3573) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - OCT 28, 2012
Draft @ Brassigaume 2012. Hazy bright golden with little white head. Smells of citrus, wheat, light esters and herbs. Sweet wheat, light grains taste, light banana, white bread yeast, touch caramel, flowers, grass, light white pepper in the back. Lightly fizzy. A Belgian eh?

sebletitje (6582) - Enghien, BELGIUM - OCT 22, 2012
Draft @ Brassigaume 2012. Dorée, léger trouble, col blanc. Arôme citronné avec qcq esters, citronné et un sucré moyen. Palais est plus épais que les autres versions de Forte, côté belge mais aussi d’ester levure très léger. Le tout est épais et pour moi rappelle plus une Hefe allemande, note de girofle en épice avec un houblon en retrait laissant des notes légères d’agrumes et épices.
