FatPhil (8995) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - SEP 20, 2013
330ml bottle (Drink Shop, Tallinn)
Far from clean aroma, a bit messed up. Simple sweet malts, some spiky esters, some alcoholic vapours too. Very sweet. Rich gold, thin fizzy-to-tight head, actively carbonated. Sweet, a bit corny. Not unpleasant once you’re past the sweetness. Strange fatty hops in the finish. Very much not a good Belgian strong, but not giving me reason to hate it. Not gonna bin it, but not gonna savour it either. Meh.

ChrisSc (184) - Lille, FRANCE - SEP 18, 2013
33cl poured into tulip Overall: Honestly not a very impressive beer. Lacking in every category. Probably one of the most disappointing beers I have had in a while. Appearance: Pours a clear copper-orange with 3cm of white head Aroma: toffee, nutty maybe? Taste: semi sweet Palate: pretty flat, thin texture very short finish.

Small bottle. Golden body, small white head. Sweet aroma with fruity malts. Sweet and bold malty taste, almost lagery. Not resembling Abbey Tripels which are mostly dry, paler and have a citric/alky bite. Quite drinkable but if I had specifically wanted a Tripel and got this instead then I would feel cheated.

Marduk (2445) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - AUG 31, 2013
330ml bottle. Clear golden color. Massive thick white head, stays. Sour, alcohol, yeast and malts in aroma. Massive alcohol, sweet, candy, bit of leather in flavor. Looks and tastes like that beer is rather excited (almost exploded when took off cap).

Scipio (677) - Palatine, Illinois, USA - AUG 27, 2013
Pours a bright golden with a full, quickly fading, white head. The aroma is a bit different, with barley, honey, peach, caramel, and wheat. The taste is a different matter. It loses the initial impressions and is replaced with a metallic flavor that is supported by a sweetness that doesn’t completely hide the foul taste. The aftertaste is the same and sadly, it sticks with you for awhile. Medium body and texture, soft, sudsy carbonation. Skip this one.

domienS (90) - Oostakker, BELGIUM - AUG 15, 2013
Amber colored, light saturation, broken white foam. smells malty. well carbonated. Tastes sweet and sugary. OK beer but really nothing special.

The_Bish (1124) - West Midlands, ENGLAND - AUG 11, 2013
Not a tripel, malty with darkish Amber pour. Not great, paulaner is better, why the comparison? Ask Dan.

ralphdot (981) - Billingham, Durham, ENGLAND - JUL 2, 2013
7.7% deep gold colour with a thin head, vinegar aroma and it tasted like dentist’s mouthwash. It may have been off.

erickok (3410) - Tours (and Paris), FRANCE - JUN 5, 2013
Golden body with small yet lasting light beige head. Sweet aroma, honey, peachy, caramel malts, tea. Like liquid honey. Taste is as expected, with honey like sweetness, but fuller than I anticipated from a brewer such as Castelain. Leaves a nice warming brew for late summer or early autumn that reminds of better days. It’s 27°C today though... (75cl bottle from Auchan)

jaghana (3695) - Strasbourg (France), FRANCE - JUN 3, 2013
Bottle 33cl, a clear copper beer with huge head and good lacings. Nose is on barley sugar and a bit vinous like, blackcurant notes. Aroma is on céréal, caramel and light honey, bit grainy, sweet, light champagne aftertaste, good grassy bitterness. Nice, tasty and easy drinckable.
