Bottle. Slightly hazy, golden-orange body with a medium, dense, white head on top. There’s some floaties in the beer, and a very lively carbonation, causing the floaties to swirl rapidly from bottom to top to bottom and so on. There’s nice lacings forming too. The nose is very fruity, with a good dash of alcohol, lots of dried fruits, some spicyness, a little pale malt, and a little hoppy note. There’s also some beef-stock like aromas, more common in darker beers. Flavorwise it is quite bitter, but the sweetness of course hits first. Fruits, mostly yellow apples, spicyness, alcohol, some pale malt and dried fruits are other things that comes to mind. A slight alcohol burn in the mouth, quite full bodied. Finishes with some alcohol, a good bitterness and sweetness, pale malt and fruityness. And it lasts for a long time. Well suited as a night cap or a relaxing beer earlier in the evening. 11% ABV is a bit strong if one wants more than one or two beers, but for the forementioned purposes, it works just fine. Not refreshing, not quenching, but surely enjoyable. (071120)

harrisoni (15068) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - NOV 18, 2005
Bottle from Auchan, Calais. Golden beer, no head. Nice fruity hoppy nose. Some syrupy sweetness is evident. Extremely carbonated and actually quite hard to swallow due to this. Golden syrup flavours in mouth and then some hop on the end which is both herby and sweet tangerine. Just a tad too strong for me.

Theydon_Bois (12736) - Tourist Town (West), Berkshire, ENGLAND - SEP 30, 2013
Bottle on the train between Brussels and Antwerpen, from Carrefour at Midi station, 26/09/13. Lightly hazed golden with a moderate white head. Lacing ensues. Nose is fruit loaf, bready malts, bitter orange, caramel, sugars. Taste comprises dark fruits, sugars, bitter orange notes, sweet bready malt, booze, caramel. Full bodied, moderate carbonation with a little too much spritz for an 11% offering. Pretty basic tripel, too sweet overall but palatable.
