suurjuust (1053) - ESTONIA - SEP 10, 2014
Hazy gold, medium frothy white head. Nose is malt, citrus, oranges, yeast, spice in the background. Flavor is malts, some sweetness, some fruit, smooth hoppy bitterness in the finish along with some dryness and pineapple notes. Lingering hoppy bitterness. Pretty tasty.

33cl @ bottle. Tripel belga particolare, non mi ha convinto del tutto. Retrogusto troppo amarognolo.

bartlebier (1717) - Belchum im Breisgau, GERMANY - SEP 7, 2014
33cl bottles 10/2013, Geers + draught @PinPon, Bxl 09/2014. Mellow, modern take on a Be tripel, substituting grapefruit marmelade, green grape juce, chalky pollen yeasts and smooth cereal honeys for a traditional barrage of tripel fruit & spice, esters and phenols. Very drinkable and smooth on draught, though less idiosyncratic - slightly more alchoholic and lean bottled.

Unclear amber color with white head. Nice yeasty and spicy aroma. Light sweet and smooth with herbal flavour.

daje (2450) - NORWAY - AUG 25, 2014
Bottle at Cafe Sara, august 23rd 2014. Hazy dark golden body with a white head. Aroma of flowery hops, yeast, sweet malt, light spicy. Taste is dry and sweet at the same time, faint fruitiness, herbs, almonds, sugar. Dry somewhat powdery feeling consistence. Strong and short bitterness. Decent, though not the most exciting brew.
