puboflyons (2597) - Allenstown, New Hampshire, USA - MAY 1, 2015
From the corked, caged 750 ml. bottle. Explosive cork pop, which I tend to favor. Pale yellow pour, big head but good clarity. Sediments. The aroma has a thin toasted malt character but the sweetness and banana fruitiness really take things over. Light to medium body. Sweet malty taste but nothing that sets this apart from others in its class. Actually far more sweet than I like my Belgians to be. It cost me $15. Kind of wish I had bought something else.

ClarkVV (4346) - Allston, Massachusetts, USA - APR 30, 2015
On draught at Torgodaya (sp?), Reims, 4/22/15.
Can’t actually find this bar on the internet which is crazy. Definitely misspelling the name, and I even know what building it is on google maps (next door to Matsuri), I believe 7 Rue de Chativesle. It’s quite a nice spot with 12 taps (nothing micro) but at least La Chouffe and some others. They also have in-house macerated rums, ranging everywhere from coffee to banana-basil. I had fresh basil and also the pepper, both were excellent. Bartenders were friendly and it was nice and dark with a t.v. showing first a football match and then a Celtics/Cavs playoff game (very unexpected, pleasant surprise). Taps seemed clean, well-priced and I like that they did not ask if I wanted a half pint or full pint (it’s 10 o clock at night, come on, whaddo I look like, some kind of moderate drinker??). Suffice to say that this thoroughly uninteresting story/semi-review of this off-the-grid bar (I swear I’m not hallucinating this) is FAR more interesting than Cuvee des trolls, which can be best summed up by: sweet, estery, bland. The epitome of forgettable, soulless beer.

0,25L bottle (from Wines of Galilee, Tallinn). Pours clear golden with off-white head. The head stays for some time. Aroma is sweet, fresh fruits, alcohol, some vegetables. Flavor is sweet, metallic, alcohol, yeast, fruits. Carbonation is rather high. Overall: ok.

SinH4 (1131) - Garching, Bavaria, GERMANY - APR 20, 2015
Hazy yellow color with small head. A bit grainy on the back. Bananas, honey, yeasts, a bit Belgian. Soft silky mouthfeel. Really just an average Belgian ale, the grains are irritating.

SarkyNorthener (3075) - West Bromwich (Yorkshire Expat), West Midlands, ENGLAND - APR 17, 2015
Bottle from carrefour@calais, France. Clear golden beer with small head. Aroma of yeast and honey. Taste is yeast, malts and a sweet honey. Ok beer.

rdb84 (344) - NETHERLANDS - APR 17, 2015
Bottle. Light golden pour with nice dense foam head. Very fruity aroma: kiwi, orange, banana, lime, hint of walnut. Refreshing taste, general sour fruity taste that is dominated by orange. Bitter but fruity development towards a very clearly discernible banana taste. A little too much like a soft drink for me.

Plutôt de base comme bière... Je me suis fait duper par le beau contenant ;-) Ça ne goûte pas vraiment la triple et c’est très mince en fait.
