Pepper bready aroma with heavy alcohol. Copper colour slight haze. Mod white head. Sweetness dominates. High alcohol flavour, seems oxidised.. Medium body. Mod carb. Overly sweet finish? Sorry, an ordinary Belgian. Not a Tripel.

It’s really doughy, yeasty, funky, something about this beer was just off, strong dark fruit aroma and flavour, brown sugar, but again just off, definitely not sour. If you really like funky beers to challenge your palate then give this a go.

minutemat (1880) - Ford, Shropshire, ENGLAND - OCT 6, 2014
330ml bottle from some travelling French folk at Newtown Food Festival. Pours hazy orange with thin foamy white head. Sweet aroma of vanilla and marzipan. Taste is similarly sweet with additional slick caramel and light spice. Quite nice by the glass, but perhaps too sweet for another.

gegwilson (1472) - North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - SEP 2, 2014
Bottle from a French supermarket. Pours a murky amber colour with very little in the way of a head. Tastes better than it looks with initial fruity sweetness followed by a fairly spicy bitter finish and alcohol warmth. OK

maeib (8750) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - AUG 27, 2014
Bottled 11/08/14. A hazy light brown coloured beer with a good sized white head and lace. A nice Belgian styled beer. Good fruitiness. A depth of flavour. Nicely balanced. Boozy and tasty. Liked.

VDuquerroux (400) - Airvault, FRANCE - MAY 4, 2014
Bottle, 75cL. Home. A clear brown orange beer with a a small white head. Medium persistence. Bubbly. Fruity aroma, caramel, spicy, herbs. Medium oil sweet balances with spicy refresging bitter. Full body. Oily texture. Medium carbonation. Sweet warming finish. Another (friendly) dragon. Overall, a good spicy bittersweet ale.

allmyvinyl (4244) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - OCT 14, 2013
330ml bottle from my big brother’s hols. Pours clear golden brown with small white head. Nice lacing. Aromas of yeast, caramel and oranges. More oranges on the taste, perhaps candied peel. Enjoyed this one.

erickok (3796) - Tours (and Paris), FRANCE - SEP 5, 2013
Cloudy amber body and small grey head. Simple malts, doughy, fatty, cookie spices. Unrefined and alcohol. Full texture but that’s because of the boatloads of sugar and unnecessary alcohol. Not nice at all. (33cl bottle from La Houblonière Toulouse)

Kavu (2438) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JUL 10, 2013
0,33l bottle from La Cervoiserie, Poitiers. Pours cloudy amber with a low head. Aroma is sweet malts with some alcohol. Flavor sweet malts with plenty of metallic alcohol. Not great, but drinkable.
