Defreni (2658) - 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.

Taste: bit fruity, lots of yeast, citrus, some grapefruit, bit malty, grains, little sour touch. Aftertaste: bitter, herbal, bit fruity, yeast, some citrus. Probably a bit too young.

reebtogi (4396) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - OCT 2, 2012
330ml bottle pours a golden color with a massive white head that retains well and leaves some nice lacing on the glass. Aroma is light fruit with yeasty notes and spice. Taste is fruity sweet with a spicy hop bitterness and yeasty dry finish. A nicely done Belgian ale which was quite tasty and pleasing on the palate.

5000 (6299) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - APR 25, 2012
Bottle:   Pale golden, hazy, fine bits of sediment float about, moderate white head, fairly nice lacing.   Bright bready aroma, slight floral and alcohol notes.   Breadiness on the tongue isnt too mealy or heavy, thankfully.   A bit spritzy on the tongue.   Backside is a little rough.   Not too smooth.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate, albeit spritzy.   Husky finish, a little cat urine (odd), and astringent floral and citrus peel.   Luckily its not too strong, but its there.   I am just happy its not mealy.

Parket (569) - Bruges, BELGIUM - APR 10, 2012
bottle, golden colour with foamy, stable and lacing white head. Smell: some fruity notes, yeasty. Taste: the alcohol is very well hidden (I expected some 6,5 abv, but 8,5, I couldn’t believe!), fruity notes, yeasty notes. Decent, but not that special. the Valeir Extra is more my style.
