FROTHINGSLOSH (5602) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 9, 2009
Sampled on draft at the Sharp Edge Beer Emporium this beer poured a vivid yellow-gold color with a small white head. The aroma was tangy, dryish and malty with a faint yeasty undertone. The flavor was tangy, yeasty and a bit tart with a fairly strong dry apple element and a sugary undertone. The finish was short, tart and dry apple. Ok but slightly disappointing.

heavy (2270) - Split, CROATIA - JAN 11, 2009
08/01 0.33 l fat brown bottle @Hopdevil, Zagreb. Murky golden body with medium sized and short living head. Weak, somewhat yeasty aroma, not bad, but pretty industrial. Flavor is also boring, damn simple, OK, there is some orange, banana, spicy yeast notes, but dull and so industrial it ruins an idea of a nice Belgian brew. Medium-long bitterish finish. OK for drinking, but one of the worst Tripels I’ve tried.

fonefan (39393) - VestJylland, DENMARK - MAY 11, 2008

Aroma is light to moderate malty, toasted, bread, cabbage, moderate to heavy yeasty, barnyard, sewer / drain, stable. Flavor is moderate sweet and bitter with a average to long duration. Body is medium, texture is oily, carbonation is soft. (110408)

scraff (2121) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - FEB 20, 2008
Draft – Brasserie Beck (DC) – Gold, fluffy white head. Complex aromas of musty cheese and barnyard funk are well layered over notes of lemony citrus, chardonnay, and hints of old oak. Tart lemon cheese and funk flavors balance on light vanilla wood notes. A soft fruity hop ending rounds this out very well. Medium bodied, soft carbonation, dry finish. Not sure what’s in those bottled versions, but I thought this draft version was fantastic…

rickgordon (3846) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - FEB 3, 2008
Bottled. Clear golden with big cottony head. Almond paste with a touch of sewer in aroma. Pretty light bodied with alcohol shining through. Bit juicy in maltiness and bittersweet.
