Beesbeer (452) - WALES - FEB 10, 2013
A bit active in the bottle this one, so needed careful opening. Aroma of stale laundry and stale Coke. Tastes sweet caramel on fresh bread. Hints of spice. Metallic finish. Not likely to be a session beer! Something to savour.

IlBevitorediLA (452) - ITALY - FEB 4, 2013
Bionda torbida con un bel cappello di schiuma persistente. Chiaramente una tripel originale gia dall’aroma: si percepiscono, si, i classici effluvi floreali e fruttati di una classica tripel ma poi fuoriesce una componente luppolata davvero molto intrigante. L’imbocco non fa altro che confermare le impressioni gia notate nell’aroma: attaco lievemente dolce, morbida, poi si scatena (forse un pò troppo) il suo carattere luppolato. Nasconde benissimo l’ABV. Una tripel su di giri, di facile beva e con un retrogusto, persistente e luppolato.

imdownthepub (9954) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - JAN 29, 2013
Bottled, 330ml from Favourite Beers, Cheltenham, Gloucs. Hazy amber with white head. Good hoppy nose with fruit, nice start which was not quite translated into the beer. There was a dry caramel along with a herby hop flavour, some fruitiness, banana, ester from the malts. Pretty decent but could have been even better.

bhensonb (10692) - Woodland, California, USA - JAN 24, 2013
Bottle from Monument in Concord, CA. Pours dishwater gold with a creamy/foamy white head. Aroma of herb and celery. Med body. Frothy carb. Flavor is mixed fruit esters with some hop bitter. Banana ester. Maybe a hint of pineapple. Very tasty ale. Finishes dry and decently bitter.

gyllenbock (4397) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - JAN 10, 2013
Bottle bought in Brussels in 2012. Hazy blonde with a large white head. Floral aroma with some yeast, fruit and hops. Taste of hops, yeast, malt and some mild alcohol. Not that sweet. Quite easy to drink. Descent.

thornecb (4290) - Marblehead, Massachusetts, USA - JAN 7, 2013
Pours slightly hazed gold into a snifter. White head with little retention recedes to mottle surface leaving spot lacing. Biscuit and caramel aromas. Medium bodied with sweet biscuit and caramel upfront turning to bitter earthy resin in the dry lasting finish.

MrHangover (2449) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - JAN 2, 2013
Bottle, thnx to Secret Sinterklaas. Pours a hazy blonde beer witha small white head. Aroma is quite yeasty with notes of fresh apples and has also some hoppy notes. Flavor is quite bitter and malty. Nice in balance, but overall not as interesting as I might have hoped. Very decent still.

(bottle) pours a murky deep golden colour with a frothy white head. aroma of raisins, herbal hops, light sweatsocks, grass and a hint of lavender. flavour is mostly popcorn, wheat and buttered toast, with a hint of floral hops, lavender and powdered sugar, slightly sweet. slightly watery body with lively carbonation.

n0mel (250) - FINLAND - DEC 17, 2012
(From notes 16.11.12) Tap. Foam is mountainy, white, lace up to the rim. Clear, straw-colored beer. Herbal, refreshing hoppy aroma. Flavor is a sharp bitter, but also sweet. Hardly any carbonation, mouthfeel thus smooth. Bitter aftertaste, average length. A nice bittersweet beer.

Vaiz (3259) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - DEC 15, 2012
Bottle at home. Hazy golden pour, thin white head. Aroma is fruity, citrus, somewhat chemical, quite spicy and with a hint of lemongrass. Flavor is spicy, fruity, bitter and sweet with a nice balance. Smooth and still quite powerful. Nice brew.
