Lore (1986) - Budapest, HUNGARY - JAN 23, 2016
opalescent yellow colour with small yeast particles, large head; aroma of overripe fruits, orange zest, earthy-wine cellar- and peppery notes, as well as some grape; taste is the same with some grains; very well balanced bitterness and sweetness with some spicy notes; almost perfect tripel

Cristobal37 (706) - Budapest, HUNGARY - JAN 17, 2016
Bottle thanks to Kapusil. Aroma osn’t very strong, but faint sweet malt and yeast. Light tripel with slow rolling sweet mint and silky malts. Graham crackers and hops. Described as being a bitter tripel but it’s really pleasant and style wise not any more bitter than id expect. A nice tripel.

chimayx (25) - FRANCE - JAN 12, 2016
Nez de pain et de vieille levure. Aromes de levure morte, un peu de pain et e céréales, forte amertume qui fait plus penser a de la levure morte qu’a du houblon, finale très astringente, ensemble déasagréable

lello4ever (558) - ITALY - JAN 5, 2016
Biondo pieno, carico e molto torbido. La schiuma è bianca molto grossolana. L?aroma è erbaceo, speziato e con punte minime di agrumi. Fantastica al palato con note floreali, bella luppolatura e la carbonazione sostiene alla grande. Alcol nascosto alla grande. Una bevuta piena e coinvolgente.

On tap at Monks. Dark brown with a tan head. Lots of caramel and bread in the aroma. Same for the flavor but with a nice bitter hoppiness to it. Really good

elbernays (1162) - Dublin, IRELAND - DEC 25, 2015
Bottle from McHughs. Pours cloudy orange. Sugary, yeast, pepper, bread, spice, orange rind. Flavour is grainy sugar caramel with a alcohol citrus peppery finish. Warmth on the end. A little medicinal but overall very drinkable.

12/21/2015: Bot: 18/03/15... The label says 8% Alc/Vol, but it drinks more like 20%. It’s strong and hot and that pretty much kills any other subtle flavor that might be in this beer. It looks dirty peach-colored with a ton of yeast sediment suspended in it. It’s somewhat sweet, but also sharp and with just a touch of spice. Not sure why this one is so highly rated; I almost just poured it as it wasn’t nearly good or interesting enough to even drink, but I choked it down since it was late and didn’t want to open another bottle of anything...
