UPDATED: MAY 3, 2012 Bottle: Big frotty white head, that disappears slow, on top of a golden beer. Smell is a sweet and spicy mix of malts fruit and yeast. Taste is a soft and smooth mix of malts, caramel, hops, citrus, yeast, spices, herbs and a slight hint of alcohol. Low to medium carbo, soft mouthfeel, medium body and a light creamy texture.

olio (8067) - Tampere, FINLAND - SEP 4, 2015
33 cl bottle.
Pours clear golden color with a large white head, some yeast sediment floating around. Toffee sweetness and orange peel on the nose, some spices, yeast and subtle lemon notes. Flavor is fruity, spices kick in early, some alcohol comes through also, mild toffee sweetness and yeast on the aftertaste. Fruity sourness on the palate, spicy finish. The alcohol disturbs just a bit, otherwise decent spicy Tripel.

Douberd (3457) - Arnhem, NETHERLANDS - AUG 23, 2015
(Het Kapittel Watou Abt) Bottle, 330 ml, at home. Served into a big tulip, ABV 10% Copper orange coloured beer with a clear body and intense activity in it. Three fingers of thick, white head on top, with very good retention. Aroma has grais, band aid, sugars, alcohol for hospital use. Taste is sweet and malty, with grains, band aid again, light metallic flavours, sugars, tobacco, alcohol, some apricot. Medium thin body, good amount of carbonation. Mixed feelings about this one.

Paladares (124) - Madrid, SPAIN - JUL 27, 2015
Botella. Ámbar claro turbio, cerca de una witbier en cuanto a color. Espuma generosa, y cremosa en apariencia. Aroma cítrico y floral. Agradable en boca. Lo primero que destaca es su fácil entrada, muy aromática. Después un punch de amargor que sorprendentemente desaparece surgiendo otra vez el toque cítrico. De hecho, el final y el postgusto es bastante cítrico. Muy bien disimulados los 10º. Reminiscencias de IPA.

Weinig schuim. Helder maar er drijft vanalles in rond. Eerste smaakindruk: bitter drukt smaak weg. Na enkele slokken wordt de smaak zachter (honing) en beter in balans en dan komen ook andere smaakdetails naar voren: beetje kruidig, rozijn. Tamelijk zoet. Bittere nasmaak blijft lang hangen. Smaak concentreert zich op midden en achterkant tong. Naarmate het glas leger wordt wordt de smaak voller en lekkerder en het bitter minder storend. Al drinkend ging mijn waardering van 2 naar 4 sterren.

Wixie (143) - BELGIUM - JUL 11, 2015
Blond liquid with little bits in it, small head. Aroma of hops and citrus. Heavy body, little carbonation. Taste of hops, bitter and sour, with a touch of iron.
