Thx! to Kraddel for the bottle. 33 cl. bottle sampled. Presumably 2008 or 2009 Vintage. Clear amber with an off-white head. Nose carries very dominant oxidation notes but this has oxidized very well, honey & caramel notes, flowers, sugar, fruits with light dates. Taste is the same deal with oxidation, faint sherry, honey, caramel, lots of brown & candy sugar, toffee, sweet, flowers, faint floral, biscuit, toast,… Slick but not very heavy oxidized. Didn’t expect anything from this one, I am a bit surprised as to how well this has kept, tripel’s should have the ability to withstand some time. This I assume was a mediocre beer that probably drinks better now than it ever did. Also where is this like distributed? I have never seen this one but there are lots of recent ratings of it up here.

from tap, pours clear amber with a small white head. the aroma is a bit sour, with some malts. not balanced at all. the taste is full of alcohol, bits of grain... no not good at all. the original koninck is still the best

Shaney (2423) - Köln / Cologne, GERMANY - MAY 6, 2013
Helles Bernstein mit reichlich Schaum. Karamell- und Toffee im Aroma und im Geschmack. Obwohl recht süffig, etwas zu aromenarm und auch zu süß. Lasst am besten den Kandis aus dem Sud.

Bottle from Mam and Dad’s holiday, Belgium. A golden beer with a sweet spicy fruity flavour, malt, caramel and almond notes with a slight sugary and warming fruity finish.

Swaroga (2111) - Gdańsk, POLAND - MAY 2, 2013
33cl bottle. Orange and hazy with very small head. Nose : strong carbonation with medium thick body. Very sweet and orange flavoured start. Grains. Yeast. Too big carbonation to swallow it easily. Typical fruity esters plus there is a lot of orange. Not at all my kind of beer.

33cl bottle. Light amber color, clear, small and short lived bubbly offwhite head, fizzy look. Something mineral on the nose. Somewhat grainy, sour bread, some spicy yeast. A bit of caramel and a metallic component, with apple on the esters side. Taste is sour. Finish is moderately bitter. Texture tend to be oily, body is very thin for the style. Huh, a weird one, didn’t like it much, far away from Karmeliet.

Bouteille 330ml. De couleur dorée-ambrée et légèrement voilée. Nez de levures fruitées aux notes sûres (agrumes, léger de pommes, traces de poires vertes), moyen de pain et de grains sucré (trace de sucre bonbon) avec des notes d’alcool et d’épices (très léger de coriandre et de poivre). Rondeur moyenne en bouche avec un pétillement moyen et une texture très légèrement huileuse. Goût de levures fruitées aux petites notes sûres (agrumes, léger de pomme, traces de prunes) avec des notes épicées (léger de poivre et traces de coriandre) lors de l’entrée en bouche suivi d’un goût malté très sucré (grains sucrés et léger de sucre bonbon) avec des notes de pain puis en finale l’on retrouve une légère amertume de houblon floral ainsi que des trace d’alcool. Post-goût moyen, légèrement amer de houblon floral et léger d’ alcool avec des notes de levures fruitées (zeste d’agrumes).
