ante (3374) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - OCT 14, 2007
Bottled. Golden with a small haze with an eruptive white foam. Sweet aroma of honey, oranges and caramel with dryish undertones of grass and lemon-zest. Full and sweet flavour of oranges and honey. Sticky-sweet finish with notes of wet grass and bitter nut-shels.

Skinnyviking (8962) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - OCT 14, 2007
Bottle. High creamy and lasting off/white head. Hazy dark orange body. Complex aroma of fruits, oranges and lemon, and apart from that alcohol and hoppy notes. It would be incorrect to call the flavor sweet. On the other hand the fruity notes and the hops form s a relatively mild mixture. Alcohol percentage seems just right. Low carbonation and short aftertaste.

Dedollewaitor (15580) - Odense, DENMARK - SEP 17, 2007
Hazy, close to muddy, orange with a creamy white head & wonderfull lacings. Aroma is strong with sweet notes from fruits, yeast & alcohol. Creamy & soft palate. Oily & quite sticky texture... Looks like foam is glued to the glass. Ligh warmth. I thought I picked up some metallic notes, but I believe its the saltiness! This is without a doubt the best in the Abdis series! Not exceptionally good for a tripel(rather simple) - but very drinkable!

bu11zeye (12757) - Frisco (Dallas), Texas, USA - SEP 10, 2007
(Bottle) Pours a clear golden amber body with a thick off-white head. Aroma of mustiness, light lemon, mango, some funkiness, and caramel. Flavor of sour fruit, spicy yeast, grassy hops, and caramel. This one was a surprise!

LordCorkscrew (1774) - Ronco Scrivia (GE), ITALY - SEP 9, 2007
UPDATED: SEP 18, 2007 Curiosità di Liefmans, assaggiata dal bicchiere altrui allo Unicorn di Brescia; aroma e sapore dominati da una certa acidità non comune per lo stile. Piacevole.______________ENGLISH TEXT HERE______________Curious Liefmans brew, sampled from Ettore’s glass at the Unicorn pub in Brescia; aroma and flavor are dominated of a certain sourness not common for the style. Pleasant.

From bottle. Nice and hopy smell. Some bitterness makes this a good medium beer

reakt (950) - Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 25, 2007
Cloudy gold with a thin white head. Nose of hop, yeast, caramel and orange. Taste is much the same with some honey and yeast notes. Thin on the palate with a slightly salty, bitter swallow. Not bad but nothing to write home about.

omhper (23731) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - JUL 23, 2007
Bottled at Belgobaren, Stockholm. Clear deep golden with a good amount of yeast sediment and rich head. Bacony somkey nose with an addition of Old English Marmelade. Sweet, dense and fruity. Medium bodied and quite salty with clean mouthfeel. Marmelady and yeasty with salty finish. Lots of interesting flavours, but a bit too clean in the mouth.

thewolf (12136) - Kolding, DENMARK - JUL 19, 2007
Bottle, from SuperBest Christiansfeld. Pours a nice clear amber with a 1cm thick creamy white head. Aroma has a clear cream caramel feel for it. Nice creamy mouthfeel. Flavour has a discomforting metallic feel amongst a little caramel, honey and malts. A slight dryness at the end, but no real hoppyness.
