Ungstrup (28448) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - SEP 24, 2007
UPDATED: OCT 14, 2010 Bottled. A clear amber beer with a huge, but collapsing beige head. The aroma is lovely acidic, combined with notes of brettanomyces and horseblanket. While the flavor is acidic with notes of malt, grapefruit, brettanomyces, yeast, horseblanket and wood. Nice mix.

Pours a cloudy amber color with a thin white head. Aroma of hay, fruits and sourness. The flavor has some gueuze quality, hay, acidic, fruits, wild yeast, but it feels less powerfull and all encompassing. The body is light and creamy and the carbonation is moderate. Itís a good beer but if I want to drink a lambic I will drink a lambic, not a tripel-lambic blend.

MesandSim (7119) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 1, 2007
A Mes rate: 37.5cl bottle from the wonderful ōlbutikken. Dark Orval-like amber colour. Opaque and cloudy with a good white head and plenty of lace. Spicy alcoholic nose with notes of clove, cinnamon, sandalwood and plenty of barnyardy funk. More spice in the flavour with plenty of Belgian tripel character initially followed by a wonderful kick of 3 Fonteinen gueuze-like complexity. Long, tart and acidic lemony finish with some grassy hops and eventually just a lick of alcohol. Incredibly chuggable for an 11% beer. Could seriously get drunk on this. Slight metallic note in the aroma is the only thing I can find wrong. Otherwise, this is a typical genius blend from Armand. Excellent stuff and thoroughly under-rated in my opinion. My glass is pretty much empty. I canít believe such a high ABV beer can be so downable.

DougShoemaker (3147) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 29, 2007
Post-Mondial Tasting. Funky, barnyard, horseblanket, cloudy orange/yellow, pours a good sized white head. Flavour is also funky with fruit, barnyard and the horseblanket too. Full bodied, complex, acidic and quite a full mouthfeel, dry and ever so refreshing. Fantastic. Thanks for everything including the chance to try this one Goldorak!!!

drewbeerme (3869) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - AUG 4, 2007
375ml, thanks to ygtbsm for this extra. pours dense copper-red with thin white head. nose is moldy, sweaty, yeasty, funky, ginger, sour cherries, and oak. flavor is extremely acidic, i mean iíve never had anything this acidic, tart and rotton cherries, wood, an odd cherry cough syrup. oh wow this is exploding my palate with an extremely fizzy and intensly acidic mouth feel and finish. making this undrinkable. a very dry, oaky, acidic finish. reminds me of those sour cry baby hard candies. if i had another one iíd age 10+ years.

skortila (4343) - Baarn, NETHERLANDS - JUL 29, 2007
Aroma of mainly lambic; horseblanket, some alcoholic fruity tones. Clear, golden coloured, with a short head. Taste is slightly sweet and tart, some orange in it, some applecider. Bit alcoholic. Quite dry finish. Weird mixture. Not really bad, but also a failed experiment I guess.

caesar (4711) - Bunnik/Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - JUL 29, 2007
Cloudy orange color, short head. Aroma of 3 fonteinen gueuze with the horseblanket, added with some apple of the blond beer combined with alcohol. The gueuze is overwhelming though. Taste of apple cider, slight tart, quite sweet. In taste itís more the blond which is dominating. Ends quite dry.

fiulijn (13533) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 26, 2007
37,5cl bottle; my first beer bottle with syntetic cork
Cloudy light amber color; poor head retention, fizzy, but then some little cloggy islands of foam are assembling, on the surface.
Very strong Lambic aroma, with citrus fruits, some grapefruit, cellar; sour; round, complete, lasting.
Medium body strength, the flavor is dominated by a typical Gueuze imprint, but with some added maltiness; the Tripel is more evident when the beer is warmer; very strong sourness and some fruitness (citrus fruits, apple, grapefruit, light pink grapefruit), with a touch of astringency.
The final is strong, long, with robust lambic character, more bitter than usual, and finally itís easier to detect a warming high alcohol.
Impressive, original, excellent.
