Foffern (1183) - Bodř, NORWAY - JUN 29, 2014
Bottle at home. 2 years old. The colour is golden amber with a medium, creamy, off-white head. Sweet and fruity aroma with Belgian yeast, oak, tequila and some spices. Belgian yeast also in the flavour with more leather, sweet malt, wood, some caramel and a good dose of alcohol. Strange bitter taste in the end. Has a slick mouth feel, and a medium bitterness. A bit weird taste on this and feels unbalanced. The alcohol dominated too much. Maybe the beer is over its peak after a couple of years.

Lele (104) - Padova, ITALY - JUN 24, 2014
Sinceramente ho assaggiato tripel migliori. Non mi ha lasciato gran che... Forse perché l’ho presa in un supermercato, dalla grande distribuzione, e forse la bottiglia ne ha risentito...

adster (203) - HUNGARY - JUN 21, 2014
Narancsos színű testére méltóságteljesen telepszik rá sűrű habja. Élénk, pezsgő jellegű főzet, mely legfőképpen savanykás ízjegyeket hordoz magában egy jó adag élesztősséggel karöltve, az alkohol pedig olyannyira a háttérben marad, hogy szinte észre sem vesszük, mennyire erős főzettel van dolgunk.

ABT_S54 (137) - West Midlands, ENGLAND - JUN 17, 2014
UPDATED: AUG 16, 2014 33cl bottle served in a Struise glass. Pours a bright orange colour with a bubbly white head which dissipates quickly. Aroma is strong booze, sweetness and flowery notes which are largely overpowered. Taste is more of the same. A truly unique tripel and one I will look forward to trying again. Certainly a sipper and not what I was expecting from the style. Not as well balanced as other spicier tripels and unfortunately, doesn’t hide it’s ABV very well.

CraftyBeerTour (49) - Barcelon, SPAIN - JUN 11, 2014
33cl bottle. Pours orange/amber with a 2 finger head that subsides quite quickly, but laces nicely. Pick up the alcohol in the aroma, and sweet mature fruit... somewhat raisiny. Long flavour trip, almost a marzipan richness. Smooth, medium body in the mouth, pleasant alcohol warming. A satisfying beer.

Bottle. Aroma fruity, spicy, lightly soury. Clear golden to orange colour. Stable head. Taste is soury, spicy, apples, lemony. Not much good.
