Trappistenbier (49) - BELGIUM - JAN 31, 2003
Exploding creamy head. Light amber coloured and hazy due to yeast floating. Very powerful with it's 11 vol% and champagne sparkling. Also very spicy in the aroma and taste. Taste is very complex and very hoppy too. Hops clearly detectable in the aroma. Yes, a real recommendation !

bierkoning (10201) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - JAN 9, 2003
My 700th. Beautiful creamy head. Cloudy. Aroma of fresh hops, citrus and honey. Very hoppy flavor. Herbal, pepper, citrus. Alcoholic. Strong champagne-like mousse. A big and complex beer well worth the high price ($ 8,- a bottle)

rauchbier (3606) - Isle Of Beer, Lincolnshire, ENGLAND - JAN 2, 2003
Bottle conditioned. Hazy gold with some floaters of yeast. Big initial head that soon drops and insistent condition. Quite hoppy nose that is almost orval like. Sweet apple and spicy hops in the mouth and a distant hoppy tartness in the finish. Much drier than a triple, with some hop characteristics, nice idea but over priced.

duff (5484) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - DEC 31, 2002
Nothing really champagne like at all as others suggest. Still very big and powerful. Heavy mouthfeel, with some detergent flavour with some peppery alcohol, like many tripels. In fact this reminded me of a blend between Westmalle Tripel, Chimay White and Orval. Complex and rich, yet i don’t really think they pulled this one off as well as they could have, still a nice one though.

domtom (65) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - DEC 29, 2002
Pale amber with a very nice head. Aroma of urinal (!). Disgusting. Not good.

Bov (9492) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - DEC 29, 2002
cloudy orange colour with a giant head, aroma of orange, fresh and yeasty, tart with a touch of acidity, dry and slightly bitter finish

Rutzicka (102) - SWITZERLAND - DEC 28, 2002
It has a nice golden-yellow colour with a giant head. Its aroma is strong, astonishing, floral and makes me feel like in an urinal. It is quite bitter, slightly tart with an acidic touch. The finish is quite long and bitter.

joeycapps (1468) - Waterdown, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 23, 2002
Hazy golden yellow w/ huge, frothy head and lots of carbonation. Yeasty, spicy, fruity (orange, banana) nose. Warm, tingly alocholic feel. Flavour is also yeasty & fruity w/ a nice warm peppery, spicy finsih.
