jaghana (4728) - Strasbourg (Alsace), 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.

erickok (4322) - 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)

Marduk (4070) - Reval, 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).

thegreenrooster (3566) - St.louis, Missouri, USA - DEC 14, 2013
Pour is a ugly looking hazy orange with a large white head. Aroma is a sweet sticky malt with plenty of sugar and sour apple. Flavor is a little better. Sweet candi sugar at first then comes more of that sour apple. Finish has lots of honey thickness and sweetness. Way to thick and cloying to be a triple and compound that with no Belgian yeastyness and you have yourself a below average triple.
