dasdan (235) - BELGIUM - MAY 31, 2013
33 cl bottle from de hopduvel in Ghent. Clear golden body with large white head. There is something strange with the aroma of this beer. Not good. But the taste seems to be ok *

bartlebier (3306) - Belchium im Biersgau, GERMANY - APR 7, 2013
33cl - Closer of the Valeir tasting range, March 2013. - Very much like a triple-bodied or less ascetic version of a traditional Duvel, with all its complex estery dryness, lively carbonation, but added fruit&yeast sweetness. Some alcohol apparent, this could do with 0.5-1% less and still be tasty enough. Lacks some punch to revive my interest for this style.

Defreni (2983) - Husum, DENMARK - OCT 20, 2012
Flaske: Gul let orange øl let diset med et lidt mindre skumhoved. Meget krydret duft med et tydeligt alkohol præg der trækker lidt ned. Smagen er sådan set fin nok, masser af krydderi og en smule malt, men alkoholen er igen det dominerende træk. Helt klart faren ved en trippel.
