3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from Beers of Europe. I seem to have enjoyed this beer more than most. Blond with persistant creamy head (in my Bush glass). Good fruity aroma reminiscent of a saison - peach, gooseberry, little bit of spice, sweet pastry, some yeast, little bit of alcohol. Smooth mouthfeel and fruity finish. Enjoyable stuff.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
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.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
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.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.
