9/VII/2012 - 33cl bottle from De Zytholoog / Bierloods (Adegem) @ home - BB: 9/II/11 (2012-706)

Clear dark blond to orange beer, big creamy head, very stable, little adhesive. Aroma: sweet malts, lots of spices, bit sugary, dried orange peel, bit fruity. MF: soft carbon, medium to full body. Taste: bit of a dusty start, citrus fruits, oranges, dried orange peel, lots of spices, bit peppery, star anise, cloves, lots of alcohol noticeable. Aftertaste: citrus and oranges, sweet malts, candi sugar, more spices, nice bitter ending, some alcohol burning the throat. Good stuff, even when 1,5 year past BB date. (or maybe because of that)

Bottle from Bier Temple Brussels. Bold gold body with huge soapy head. Nose of citrus, chalky. Taste fruits, oranges, malts, caramel. Quite nice. Nice warming Tripel finish going on. Enjoyable.

MiP (13598) - Sřnderborg, DENMARK - FEB 27, 2008
Bottle, 7%. Cloudy orange colour. Big semi-stable white head. The flavour starts spicy, then turns a little sour. Very high carbonation. Ends on a clean finish in between dry and sweet.

oberabcbbsok (687) - Hoboken, BELGIUM - OCT 10, 2007
On bottle. Noce and good tasting beer. A rather bitter aftertaste and some sweetness, makes this beer a good and nice beer

JorisPPattyn (7909) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - OCT 7, 2007
UPDATED: JUN 25, 2011 Pale amber-orange ale; small yellowish head. Wet dog, rotting wood, moulded malts. Again something rotten in the taste, as well as sweet malts superimposed by a rather harsh bitterness, not really hoppy. Drier finish. Slick, but rather thin. Ugh.
Retrial with new batch. The rotting wood from above has been replaced by burnt plastic, very present in the taste. Not really an improvement. At least the thinness seems to be remedied, making it even more slick. Would fetch a couple of points, indeed, so: was: 3/4/5/3/9 = 2.4/5

Jerre (2672) - Waregem, BELGIUM - JUL 31, 2007
Bottle, 33 cl. Delirium Café Brussels. Dark golden color, good white head. Aroma sweetness, hops, light fruity. Medium body. Taste = bitterness, malts, a bit sweet. Dry aftertaste. Not bad at all.

bierkoning (10201) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - AUG 18, 2006
Tap, Café De Gouden Leeuw, St Lievens Houtem. Golden color, light and undescript fruity aroma. Thiinish mouthfeel. Alcoholic. Malty, slightly citric flavor with not very much else. I can’t taste much hops. Rather empty abbey tripel type.
