ClarkVV (4058) - Allston, Massachusetts, USA - MAY 20, 2015
Draught at Novare Res, 5/17/15
Mostly clear, deep brassy-amber body is topped by a small white head with moderate to low retention.
I’d always wanted to try something from this brewery, but haven’t read anything overly outstanding about them, and after a few sniffs from the glass, I wasn’t feeling too optimistic. Sweetbreads, light cake icing and near-spoiled peaches, with some rustic earthiness all lead me to believe I was in for an underfermented journey...Granted, the alcohol wasn’t too apparent, nor were there any raw/fusel-like notes or horribly offensive esters (not a nose full of bubble gum/cotton candy), though the peachy notes were a bit off-putting....
And yes, sweet in flavor it certainly was, though there was something a touch endearing that somewhat saved the experience. Bready flavors and sweet honeyed malts combine with a zesty fruitiness (peaches, nectarines) but at the same time are almost balanced by a dry, earthy flavor that could either be hops or yeast phenols/acids. It gave the impression of an American trippel, being otherwise quite clean and rather simplistic. Citrus rinds, pineapple and sweet white dough persist on the end, with a bit of alcohol warmth. Fine. Was expecting a lot worse based on the aroma. Not syrupy nor underfermented, despite the high level of maltiness.

UPDATED: OCT 4, 2014 Gift from wife, she insisted I drink it blind (ie she soaked off the label and insisted I rate it before she tell me what I was drinking) What follows is from my notes: Hazy dark golden with large white head. Spicy sweet yeasty aroma. Taste I also spicy sweet with hints of toffee and earthy dark fruits. Boozy in the middle. Earthy Belgian hop finish with some yeast flavors too.

guiroul33 (206) - Bordeaux, FRANCE - SEP 27, 2014
Hazy golden color, stable white foam. Aroma of belgian yeast, bread, tropical fruits. Taste is well balanced, bitterness comes at the end with a warming alcohol aftertaste. Nice tripel.

Alengrin (2986) - BELGIUM - AUG 11, 2014
Beer brewed for a commissioner in Lier since 2008. Stable, sticky, snow white head, golden blonde colour. Modest aroma of sweetish pale malt, grassy hops, bread and green apple. Subdued fruity taste, bit peachy, strong carbonation, simple pils-like main taste, rather neutral, mild hop bitterness in the finish but unfortunately some solvents too. Not my cup of tea, at all.
