UXO (147) - CANADA - JUL 29, 2014
Pours a clear golden blonde with a fat two fingers of fluffy white head, great retention and heavy lacing. Nose is yeasty banana, stone fruit, sweet malt. Taste is hoppy bitter and balanced sweet biscuity malt. Mouth feel is lively with sustained carbonation, medium body but crisp, with an off-dry finish and a well-integrated mild warming. Quite pleasant, if not quite as nice as the Houblon Chouffe (tripel). Nose and flavour are both a little coarser and heavier than the tripel even though the ABV is lower. However, that’s not to denigrate the beer overall: it suffers slightly by comparison, true, but overall is a very solid performer.

Ragnampiza (349) - Rome / Lecce, ITALY - JUL 29, 2014
330 ml bottle. Deep and bright orange, quite hazy, with a big, creamy, fluffy and persistent white head. Good lacing. Fruity and spicy aroma, some blanche qualities (coriander especially), fruit esters, yeast, moderately hoppy as well. Quite zingy, very dry, slightly warming but the 8% ABV is well masked. Solid level of bitterness, hoppy enough with a decent bready/biscuity malt backbone. Refreshing and easy to drink despite its strenght. Lively carbonation, light to medium body, slightly creamy texture. Solid.

mgajdaczewa (457) - Katowice, POLAND - JUL 29, 2014
W aromacie silna brzoskwinia i przyprawy, czyli typowo po belgijsku, intensywnie i charakterystycznie. W smaku bardzo owocowe, jest brzoskwinia, która dla mnie sprawia wrażenie nieco przejrzałej, troszkę to drażni. Do tego wyraźnie przyprawowe, lekko dzikie w posmaku. Generalnie dobre, ale w tej kategorii mam innych faworytów.

Sissio (544) - Orsenigo, ITALY - JUL 28, 2014
Clear blonde with white foam. Cereal malty, yellow fruit and herbaceous, belgian aroma. The aroma reproposes itself in the taste, yellow fruit, malts, light caramel and aromatic hops.

Mooi goudgeel, enigzins troebel bier, bloemig, fruitig, smaak van gist en metaal, citrus. Lekker fris en sprankelend.

Bamsen78 (2993) - Sřnderborg, DENMARK - JUL 20, 2014
Draught @ Bier- & Eetcafé Gollem, Antwerp. Pours slightly hazy straw with small white head. Clear aroma of malt and hops, with notes of caramel and yeast. Sweetish flavour of caramel malt, with notes of hops and metal. Rough, estery and metallic aftertaste, without which the beer would be much better. Drinkable but not quite what I like.

rockana (214) - Zadar/Zagreb, CROATIA - JUL 18, 2014
UPDATED: JUL 25, 2014 Pours a bit cloudish golden color with medium white head. Aroma is banana, fruits, plums, spicy. Medium body. Great one.
