Swaroga (1813) - Brussels, BELGIUM - SEP 2, 2012
75cl bottle. Cloudy golden liquid with medium white head. Nose : wet laundry, strong ester fruity peach and banana, some orange. Sweet bread. Sip : Medium carbonation, smooth body with oily texture. Sweet malt flavor with fruity esters. Candy. Overall it’s too sweet for me. No bite at all. It hides well the alcohol though.

yngwie (15566) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - SEP 1, 2012
Bottle, 75cl. A cute looking beer, almost clear, golden in color and topped by a dense, finger-thick white head. The aroma has some light spicyness, as well as pale malts, toffee and a generic fruityness. Quite sweet, in a pleasant way, on the palate, full-bodied and nicely carbonated. Still, it feels quite dryish, especially towards the finish. Some bitterness, and pale malts, toffee hints and fruityness. A faint spiced touch too. Pleasant bitterness in the end. Not your everyday tripel, but a nice beer anyway. 111229

BlackHaddock (4972) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - JUL 24, 2012
Brown 75cl bottle: best before 21 May 2013, brewed 21 May 2011 and opened 01 July 2012 and poured into three glasses in one go, to try and keep the sediment at bay. Even so the beer was a misty/cloudy looking brew of old gold: on top of each glass a thin wispy head that wasn’t intending to stay around for long and didn’t. Spices in the nose along with the sweeter citrus fruits (oranges/tangerines etc. etc), add some yeast esters and a tablespoon full of sugar and you’ve got the aroma. The taste is very simular to the smells and there is very little hop presence to give any balance or bitterness. Corinader is mentioned on the label and I tried to find the flavour within the beer but failed. Not a great example of a Belgian Tripel but a different slant on the style maybe and not what I was expecting.
