DerWeg (1551) - Toronto, Ontario, - FEB 11, 2013
Bottle lcbo pours a healthy fine carbonation forming a white head over a medium amber coat, wafting aromas of deep pale fruit like Muscat grape and hops and tingling spice. Sharp bitterness and a lot of alcoholic warmth leading into some spicy and bubblegum phenols and also the winey muscat and fruit, which rounds over a full palate leading to a round yet dry long warm finish that shows the spicy and the hop. Not a style I drink often but so solid!

vidmidia (77) - Vila Velha, BRAZIL - JUN 11, 2015
Cor de mel, límpida. Espuma abundante e duradoura. Aroma de gengibre, laranja e especiarias. Sabor amargo, citrico, com notas de casca de laranja, florais e de especiarias. Retrogosto alcoólico, adocicado, com final amargo.

Jultsu (270) - TAMPERE, FINLAND - JUN 6, 2015
Vaaleansamea väri, niukka vaahto. Raikas tuoksu, aromikas? Roima alkoholinen suutuntuma, marjaisan makea olematta siirappinen, poltteleva jälkimaku. Hivenen tylppä viimeistely.

jamaty (1144) - Madrid, SPAIN - JUN 4, 2015
Dorada, clara, efervescente. Espuma blanca, no muy duradera. Aroma rico, complejo. Licórico. En boca tiene un sabor bastante agradable, de cierta complejidad. Base malteada agradable. Vainilla. Base dulce en definitiva. Pero a la vez bien especiada y frutal. Y sobre todo licórica. Madera. Pocas cervezas he probado que dejen semejante calor, que recuerda el de un buen whisky... salvo por el postgusto frutal y acaramelado... Es cerveza. Para ocasiones especiales...

Alengrin (3105) - BELGIUM - MAY 17, 2015
UPDATED: JUN 5, 2015 Barrel aged triple from a 60 cl bottle, at Chez Moeder Lambic Original. Thick, very creamy and lacing, light yellowish white, dense head, colour clear orange blonde, hazy with deposit. Pleasant and elegant aroma of orange juice, caramel, ginger, banana, pink grapefruit, white wine, white bread, peach, honey, banana and whisky. Fruity, rounded onset, pineapple, banana and mango, medium carbo, soft bready and slightly caramelly maltiness, spicy yeasty accents, citrussy, lightly spicy hop bitterness in the finish but gentle and soft, yeasty accents lingering along with woody tannins and brandy- or whisky-like, warming but gentle alcohol. Well balanced, flawless and interesting tripel, in fact among the better ones in this style I had so far.

Helsdon (272) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 7, 2015
A finger of white head, golden color in this poorly lit bar. Not much in the way of smell, but it’s probably my nosr today. Soft malts and cream taste, general sweetness and little oak harsh on the finish.

Lilja (2071) - Malmö, SWEDEN - MAY 1, 2015
Ölföreningen 2015. Smak och doft av belgisk jäst, aprikos, päron och äpple. Stor sötma och kropp, fina smaker, välbalanserad, fin beska. Riktigt gott!

dEnk (4192) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - APR 17, 2015
Bottle @ WWT. Aroma has some fruit, malt, herbal and spicy notes, also swamp. Flavour is malty peppery fruity notes. Okay, but a bit weird.

luttonm (2909) - Seattle, Washington, USA - APR 6, 2015
At bottleshare in Seattle. Rich orange, white soapy head. Dense banana, clove, creamy body. Belgian strong ale, lots of alc. Odd carbonation. Grew on me.

Vignale (2485) - Malmö, SWEDEN - MAR 23, 2015
Flaska från Saveur-bier, drucken med ölföreningen. Gyllenfärgad, champagnelikande utseende. En riktigt trevlig trippel, stor kropp, lätt munkänsla, väldigt välbalanserad utan störande sötma eller alkohol med fina söta smaker av äpple och päron men torrare avslutning. Riktigt gott.

aumax1 (287) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 21, 2015
Bouteille de 600ml d’ambré. Arôme d’écorce d’orange de miel. Au gout c’est puissant pour commencer ensuite vient des notes de fruit, de malt et un équilibre de sucre.
