thirstyrabbit (1099) - Tallinn, - JAN 31, 2013
Small bottle; 9,7%. Cloudy golden body, medium head. Aroma has yeast, wheat and banana. Taste has sweet wheat and fruitiness, followed by citrus tastes and alcohol bitterness but it’s generally not too distracting. A nice strong Tripel.

sayravai (4674) - Helsinki, FINLAND - AUG 22, 2014
(Bottled, BBE 9.10.2014, 9.7% ABV) Hazy dark golden with a smallish, but firm and lacy head. Syrupy-sweet, warming nose with grainy-caramely notes. Flavor is grainy-toffeeish with slight lime-fruity notes. Surprisingly dry flavor considering the aroma, yet without showing the alcohol. Quite full body, soft and creamy mouthfeel. Creamy-smooth tripel with hidden alcohol. Too bad this already feels too aged (totally lacks any freshness) when 1+ months to BBE. 4237

Foffern (1198) - Bodř, NORWAY - JUN 29, 2014
Bottle at home. 1 year old. Has a slightly cloudy, dark straw colour with a medium, off-white head. Pretty carbonated. Sweet aroma with citrus, Belgian yeast, pale malt and pears. The flavour has more pale malt, Belgian yeast, warming alcohol and some spices. Slick mouth feel, and has a light bitterness. A sweet and balanced tripel.

Bottle (33cl) from Vinmonopolet, Oslo. Hazy, light amber colour. Inch-thick white head, fairly good retention, leaves a thick film and a band of bat-shaped lacing. Complex aroma of fermented fruit, yeast, burnt plastic (phenolic), melted butter, caramel, vegetables, tangerines. Medium body, soft carbonation. Semi-sweet ’deep’ fruity taste with some dust/cellar associations, mild bitterness, pleasant acidity. Fruity-bitter aftertaste.
