Draught at BrewDog Shepherd’s Bush on 14 Oct. Poured a hazy ochre, with a dense white head. Aroma of bread, hay and soft fruit. Mandarin and apricot flavour, with a grainy backbone. Slightly lighter than expected. Finish was chalky, with some straw and raisin.

robbienate (113) - Calgary, Alberta, CANADA - OCT 13, 2014
Early bottled versions of this beer are sweeter with higher carbonation; draft (preferable to me) has been less sweet with moderate carbonation and more forward hop presence. Overall: Nice orange color with tall, perfect off-white head. Nose is yeasty-fruity with orange notes and fresh hop backdrop. Mildly sweet flavor, tangy, moderately bitter on dryish hopping, lively carbonation and (from the bottle especially) touch of alcohol warmth.

On tap at Jose Pistolas with Annie, pours hazy straw golden with small head and not much lacing. Aromas are Belgian yeast ,light clove, apple, and marshmallow malt. Flavor is most of the same with dry yeasty finish.

PsychoGunnar (200) - Bergen, NORWAY - OCT 11, 2014
Light blonde, but beautifully opaque microbrew from Brussels. Smells fruity, not unlike a wit. Thus there are hints of citrus and coriander; in the main taste the citrus is joined by a balanced hoppiness, creating a weird hybrid of wit and IPA. Oddly enough there is no wheat or extra spices in this - the taste and aroma is thus a masterpiece of hopping. Wow!

adster (453) - HUNGARY - OCT 2, 2014
Élettel teli aromák, opálos küllem, az élesztős-gabonás iskolák legelemibb tanításait magán hordozó főzet. Igen vehemens, fűszeres és pezsgő jellegű sör, szimpatikus egyensúlyban tálalva azokat a komponenseket, amik egy ehhez fogható italt arra predesztinálnak, hogy tripel legyen.
