Procent (208) - POLAND - JAN 18, 2015
W aromacie słodko, karmelowo, kandyzowane owoce, cytrusy. Połączenie DIPA i Barley Wine. W smaku także dość słodko, z goryczką średnią, alkoholową, charaktaerystyczną dla belgijskich tripli itp. Bardzo dobre!

ogivlado (6027) - Zagreb, CROATIA - JAN 13, 2015
big bottle 1500ml. -from Svijet Piva Zagreb. Why to chear New Year 2015 with champagne when this is in the house;))). Orange/amber coloured, huge off-white head, lively carbonation, yeasty spicy nose. Malty, spicy, yeasty and fruity with touch of grapefruit and oranges. Mild grassy and spicy finish. Not the best from the style but good enough.

MayumiH (207) - Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 12, 2015
Bottle at home on Christmas Eve. Yeah so I had another one instead of peeling potatoes, trimming sprouts and making Christmas butter. Overall a good beer. Citrus, straw, sour-ish taste. Warming. Yum.

boxofrane (2272) - Spring City, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 4, 2015
Draft at bistro on bridge. Pours hazy yellow with a large white head. The aroma is lemon and floral. The taste is dry, light bitter, not awesome. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

bursprak (836) - Aarhus, DENMARK - JAN 3, 2015
Bottle split two ways. Reddish pour with a frothy head. Quite hoppy with peaches, orange peel, some citrus and vanilla sweetness. Finish is light bitter. More of a amber ale than anything else.

Alengrin (2618) - BELGIUM - JAN 3, 2015
Tasted from a magnum bottle on New Year’s Eve, thanks Stefan. Hazy orange beer with copper hue under a sticky, stable, pale beige head. Perfumey aroma of candied orange, fresh apricot, pipe tobacco, pink grapefruit, pumpkin soup, sundried tomatoes, honey, bell peppers, apple sauce, brown bread, Grand Marnier, ginger and brown rhum. Fresh citrusy and very fruity onset, sweetish with a strong candied orange impression, marmelade, tomato accent, some sourish wheat, yeasty, smooth caramelly malt sweetness, complex spicy notes, long peppery and citrusy hop bitterness in the finish along with malt sweetness and some warming alcohol. Interesting beer which has survived the years of cellaring exceptionally well, but I fail to see the link with either a witbier or an Irish red; if I had to taste this blind, my guess in terms of style would be an American strong ale.

Really nice balance to this Christmas hybrid style, one of the better I had this year, especially so on tap if you can get it (thank god for Mikkeller Bar SF!) ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Percy0103 (228) - MEXICO - DEC 31, 2014
3oz sample at Expo Cerveza Mexico 2014. An opaque amber beer with a small white head that fades away after a minute. Aroma is of grapefruit, alcohol and sweet spices. Taste is bitter with a very strong mint finish. Almost no carbonation and a lot of astringency. Strong aftertaste. Maybe too strong?
