3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Initially pours a crystal clear gold with a huge firm white head, which leaves a truly awe inspiring degree of lacing. Later glasses are hazy, and then finally fully cloudy and without the initially brilliance, as the yeast at the bottom pours out. Nose of yeast, wheat, and hops, more than I would expect in a Belgian tripel or Belgian strong unless it came from California. Taste of, well, yeast, wheat, and enough hops to produce a smile without fighting with the Belgian strong type. Nice, works. Docked a point because, well, itís easier to make a beer work this well with this much alcohol.

Tried this bottle with a coworker on a business trip to California. Not "belgian" enough for me.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from Alís of Hampden. 2011 vintage. Been resting in my fridge ever since. Pours golden with an inch of white foam that leaves trace lacing. Some bready yeastiness on the nose. A bit fruity on the tongue, but as the description alludes, bone dry otherwise. It wears itís alcohol well without any alcohol burn. Solid!

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Sweet, flowery aroma. Flavor is sweet and fruity, with some flowery bitterness, a little sour, and a fair amount of alcohol in the finish. Good, but not great.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle from Systembolaget, Sweden. Tried 130419, Best before 111231.
Big but short white head. Clowdy golden color. A bit of flowery perfume aroma, not strong but just right. Welvet smooth taste with small belgian phenols and sweetness and a finnishing balanced bitterness.

2.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours light yellow with a huge soapy head. Sour aroma with strong yeast and alcohol tones. Flavor is similar, but flat. Not one of my favorites from Lost Abbey.

Bottle @ home shared with Dutchdrebus. Clear light orange color, full sized creamy thick fairly dense white head. Smell malts, a slight sourness, fruityness of apricot and yeast. Taste lightly malts, fruits, orangepeel, alcohol, a slight sour touch and a bit yeasty. After a while some hops come through. Medium carbonation, full body.

Bottle @ benzai. Slightly hazy yellow with a huge white head. Smells alcohol, sharp, malts, heavy, some apricot. Tastes malty, heavy, alcoholic, slightly fruity (apricot). Quite a lot of carbo (makes me burp), feels heavy. Amazingly heavy actually.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a cloudy straw color, with a thick foamy white head. There is a spiciness in the aroma, but overall it has a mild aroma. Taste is sweet and spicy, interesting grape and lemon notes with bread as well. A solid beer, worth a try.
