Another french beer huh? Not expecting anything good sorry. Golden beer, nose is syrup. Aroma of sweet malts with a a soapy/medicinal tone already found in other Castelain products. Syrupy sweetness. Taste is fairly sweet indeed. Finish is sticky. Not too bad itself but just evaporates against other Tripels. Average.

Bottle from a French supermarket. Blond with a white head. Starts fairly sweet before plenty of spice kicks in. Some citrus too. Light and refreshing. Not bad.

Theydon_Bois (8668) - The ’Sham, Surrey, ENGLAND - JUL 6, 2014
Bottle at Chriso going Dutch tasting, 03/07/14. Ever so lightly hazed golden with a moderate off white swirl and edgeing. Nose is toffee, dark fruits, spice, pear skins, light nail polish, boozey tones. Taste comprises malty notes, spice, bready, caramel, hint of vanilla. Medium bodied, fine carbonatin, semi drying close with sweet pangs. So so.

Craig on Heat Tasting at ChrisO’s. Almost clear gold beer, fluffy pale cream colour head. Palate is airy and light. Modest fine carbonation. Sugary sweetness in the airy malt. Some floralness and candy fruits. Smooth light finish. A bit sweet, even for me.

Leighton (10969) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 3, 2014
Bottle shared at chriso’s. Pours clear gold with a creamy, white head. Sugary pale bread nose, white sugar, hay, tangy citrus. Medium to big sweet flavour, some melon, white grape, tangerine, white bread, mild yeast. Medium bodied with fine to average carbonation. Sweet finish, a little boozy, with more melon, white grape. I actually like it.

Gurthnar (1721) - Bratislava, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - MAY 31, 2014
Bottle. Aroma is very mild over all, honeyish, lightly lemony. Clear golden colour. Taste is sweet, sugary, caramel. Overall malty. Lacks spices, is too sweet, but overall drinkable and IMO without off-flavours. Okay beer.

Cuso (4568) - Bratislava, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - MAY 31, 2014
Bottle from friend, many thanks. Deep golden color with huge white head. Ugly malty aroma. Malt, yeast, corn, syrup. Bad.

Flasa - Cuso. Zlata farba, pena biela, bublinkova rychlo opadla. Vona sladka, sladova, kvasnicova, alkohol. V chuti extremna sladkost, kvasnice. Pre mne velmi zle pivo.

TBone (12547) - Pori, FINLAND - JAN 16, 2014
Bottle 750ml (Saveur)
Clear deep honey-golden color, small steady white head. Berryish aroma of a bit tart marmalade. Medium-bodied. Sweetish and berryish flavor with some grassy hoppyness. Sweetness covers the most of alcohol but it is there underlying. Simple, sweet and even a bit rough.
