meerbier (1449) - Pijnacker, NETHERLANDS - APR 2, 2014
Bottle@Home. Not quite sure what this is supposed to be. A clone of Orval maybe? But without the funkiness? Thin, too bitter, yeasty, unbalanced.

GBZ59 (988) - BARCELONA (Catalonia), SPAIN - MAR 31, 2014
Botella de 330ml. Copa Cáliz de Het Kappitel. Color ámbar anaranjado y apariencia algo velada. Espuma beige que se disipa con bastante rapidez. Aromas de malta cristal, dátiles, uva y azúcar de cańa con leve ácido; notas de toffee, florales y vainillas subyacentes. Sabor de fruta dulce con notas cítricas y toques de membrillo y ciruela verde. Cuerpo medio y carbonatación moderada. Paladar picante y especiado en una textura densa. Notas terrosas y agrias con trazos de madera que permanecen en un final amargo/dulce. Fruta en el retrogusto. Una cerveza que vale la pena!!, alejada de los habituales Estilos Trapistas. 330ml bottle. Het Kappitel Chalice glass. Orangish amber color, chill haze appearance. Beige close fairly quickly diminish. Crystal, dat, cane sugar, grape & slight acidic aromas, as well as toffee, floral & vanilla notes on the back. Sweet fruit, citric notes & touches of quince & raw plum. Medium body. Moderate carbonation. Spicy & spiced palate. Dense texture. Earthy, sour notes & hints of wood linger into a bitter/sweet finish. Fruit on the aftertaste. Worth to try!! A far away one from usual Trappist bier styles.

EdwinLitzau (245) - NETHERLANDS - MAR 29, 2014
Amberkleurig, troebel met dikke witte schuimkraag. Ruikt erg lekker, beetje naar banaan, hoppig. Smaakt goed maar is niet in balans. Tamelijk bittere nasmaak.

ekstedt (5217) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - MAR 28, 2014
Bottle (33 cl) from biresgourmet.be. CLear amber, medium off-white head. Bready and nutty malt aroma, plastic phenolics. Medium bodied, medium to high carbonation. Semi dry, medium bitterness.

thirstyrabbit (1006) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - MAR 26, 2014
Bottle. Cloudy dark orange body with a tall head. Mildly sourish aroma with some phenolic yeast. A bit Saison-like. Sweet and sour yeasty taste with some honey and leather. Smooth bready finish with slightly acidic yeastiness. Feels kind of rustic. Not resembling the classic Trappist beers. If anything, maybe it has a bit of Orval funkiness but it is not (as) well harmonised here.

Ladybirri (12) - - MAR 23, 2014
Muy decepcionante, despues de la primer y estupenda Gregorious. Un fuerte olor a aceitunas verdes, excesiva carbonatación. Quiere parecerse a una blond belga pero ni las levaduras ni siquiera el color cuadran. En boca más sabores que no cuadran. No merece la pena lo que cuesta, que no es poco.

Bendrixian (995) - Halifax, Nova Scotia, CANADA - MAR 23, 2014
Murky brown/reddish colour with a nice lingering but thin cream head. Honey and floral aroma with yeas, nutmeg and kitchen baking spices. It is a bitter brew with spice and fruit on the palate. Has good length and has some sweetness and leesy texture. More aggressively bitter than I thought and this makes this beer memorable for me.

GSAP (411) - NETHERLANDS - MAR 22, 2014
Ietwat IPA lijkend, citrus, kruiden, bloemen en zwaar brood in aroma. Smaak is verfrissend met een bittere bite. Sinaasappel en honing, licht kruidig ook. Prikkelend in de mond.

thorongil2 (1078) - , Ontario, CANADA - MAR 19, 2014
(bottle) clear bright amber colour with a small tan head; aromas of sweet fruit, honey, hint of noble hops; slightly bitter flavour with a long medium bitter finish, the bitterness is unusual for a Belgian ale, but over all not bad

HenrikSoegaard (10104) - Randers, DENMARK - MAR 15, 2014
Bottle. Creamy off-white good fully lasting head. Amber colour. Moderate malty and hoppy and yeasty nice aroma. Moderate bitter strange flavor. Yeastflaw? Average moderate bitter finish. Oily palate.
