Bozo_skeleton (569) - Grenoble, FRANCE - AUG 24, 2014
Blonde grosse carbo et gros collet. Aromes fruités et fleuris. Un peu sucrée mais bien contrebalancée par l’amertume.

Sask89 (418) - Regina, Saskatchewan, CANADA - AUG 23, 2014
Pours a golden yellow colour, consistent haziness with a frothy white head. Aroma is quite subtle with a little fruitiness and some floral scents. The taste is unique and quite sweet with a noticeable bitter kick in the sip. Light body, thinner mouth feel, and lively carbonation. Interesting beer overall.

Alengrin (2448) - BELGIUM - AUG 21, 2014
One of the new generation of ’tripel hop’ beers in Belgium, holding the middle between the old, family brewer’s tripel and the new IPAs micro breweries come up with these days. A great success for Lefebvre and hopped with no less than five hop varieties (so technically I shouldn’t have used the term "tripel" hop, but you get my drift). A golden blonde beer with a thick, stable, cream white head and fruity main character adorned with yeasty spiciness and a long, complex, grassy, herbal, peppery hoppiness, not quite as bitter as in a real IPA, but still. The deposit is supposed to be served separately in a small liquor glass, as is sometimes done with oude geuze or Orval.

KamGoPro (106) - Texas, USA - AUG 21, 2014
Smells of cherries and wood, very unique earthy aroma! Imported by a college station, TX company=random GIG EM! The intricate strong fruit and subtle hops with mellow malts makes this awesome!

ForlornHope (100) - Hampshire, ENGLAND - AUG 16, 2014
Aroma is bready and yeast. Any hop aroma is very subtle and earthy. Pours with a massive white head that stays the distance. Taste is again mainly bready and sweet, with little balance. Thin palate. I’m not sure I get this beer at all. I don’t know where the hopping is, perhaps I was expecting something different. Distinctly underwhelming.

Bottle at home. Small white foamy head. Opage orange/yellow colour. Smell hops yeast. Taste hops malts, somewhat herbs. Decent body.

venom666 (413) - Elche, SPAIN - JUL 30, 2014
UPDATED: AUG 1, 2014 Hazy golden color with creamy white long lasting head. High carbonation. Aroma of floral hops, fruits and citrus. Taste is lemony, with clear hop hints and sweet malts. Very balanced and well hidden alcohol. Aftertaste is bitter.
