Beese (2560) - Watford, Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - SEP 3, 2014
Bottle from R.Leclerc, Riberac. Poured a clear, mid golden colour, with a dense white head. Aroma of malt, dried fruit and honey. Candy sugar and bready malt and slightly tart citrus. Finish was pretty light; some grassy hop, flatish malt and boiled sweets.

tfredvik (1463) - Oslo, NORWAY - AUG 30, 2014
Crystal clear, brilliant golden body with a small, white head that laces the glass well. Quite strong aroma of Belgian yeast, pale malts, spices and a whiff of alcohol. The flavour follows in the path of the aroma, but is not very strong. The alcohol is fairly well integrated. Moderate sweet taste and a light to moderate bitterness. Mid-bodied, oily texture, moderate carbonation, not much dryness. A decent beer, but a tad too sweet and faint.
[75 cl bottle shared with Svensenga Smak & Behag, enjoyed 2 years after bottling, from SuperBrugsen Nykøbing Sj., Denmark]

Alengrin (3548) - BELGIUM - AUG 24, 2014
Blonde counterpart of the original Keizer Karel, launched in 2006. Snow white head, golden blonde colour with slight haze. Sweet and fruity, soft maltiness, some citrus, some caramel, impressions of peaches, red apple, honey and vanilla, warm alcoholic finish with mild hop bitterness. Not very interesting tripel, lacks personality, like all of Haacht’s beers.
