3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
11/V/13 - 33cl bottle from De Hopduvel (Gent) @ home - BB: 15/I/14 (2013-457)
Clear orange beer, creamy off-white head, little stable, adhesive, leaving a nice lacing in the glass. Aroma: caramel, sugary, almonds, cookies, bit spicy, sherry notes. MF: ok carbon, medium body. Taste: very old, oxidized beer, honey, little bitter, hint of marzipan. Aftertaste: orange peel, very oxidized. Despite still months before the BB-date, the beer clearly didn’t survive it’s first 2 years in the bottle. (Given the huge oxidization, I suppose they took 3 years after bottling date as BB-date.)

UPDATED: OCT 14, 2012 Initial Rating Date: 1/18/2012 9:58:42 AM : Bottle 33cl, a cloudy yellow beer with medium head. Nose is very yeast like, much ester in the nose not balanced. Aroma is very alcoholic like, sweet, wheat notes, notes of diacetyl, yeast, over riped fruit, very unbalanced, very strange, butter like, oxidized.*
Bottle @Nelson Strasbourg, nose with distinctive diacetyl notes. Aroma is on orange and peppery hops, again medium diacetyl touch, not really out standing.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bouteille de 33 cl. Couleur orangée, trouble, joli col blanc de tenue très correcte. Une triple fruitée et épicée assez archétypique de la tradition belge. Classique mais bien fait! Trouvée à Vanuxeem - Ploegstaert.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
(Bottle, Monk’s Café Wallingatan, Stockholm) Hazy, pale amber colour with foamy, off-white head. Fruity, spicy nose with orange peel, peaches, marmalade and some toast. Fruity, malty taste with notes of orange peel, apricots, caramel, marmalade and a spicy finish with a certain hop bite. More than medium body, with some sweetness. Tasty and well balanced. Nice one.

A Proefbrouwerij tripel. Good example of the style, grainy alcohol, secondary fermentation fullness. Seems to have been commissioned by some bloke called Claude.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle, 8%. Gusher. Yeasty aroma, baking yeast, some sugary fruit. Dark copper colour, flooded with nasty looking floating bits. Big stable off-white head. The flavour is rather sweet with a distinct alcohol level to balance. Good fruity sweetness and also a good, clean grapefruity bitterness to finish.
