A surprisingly good blonde - fresh, yeasty and well realised, with a definite alcohol presence that is not astringent at all. Typical fizzy palate is not irritating as so many are. Finishing charcters of fresh hops and the vaguest hint of citrus.

I bought this on the word that it was better than Karmaliet, but its not. Looks like a typical belgian. Hoppy, delicate start with a slight bite. What I noticed most about this guy is how fast the taste dissipates. Disappointing for its high price. It also gets almost rank as it gets warmer. A below par tripel in my opinion.

Decent beer with some truly unusual tastes in both the fore abd after. I shared this with a friend that mostly drinks macros and he liked it a great deal more than I did. There is something sharp and dry in the taste that you don’t get out of most Belgians. Very different.

Papsoe (25085) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - MAY 24, 2005
(Bottle 25 cl) Originally just known as "Moinette II". Orangey golden beer with a huge head. Lots of yesty sediment. Strong and potent in both body and alcohol with a dry hoppiness. We’re talking Orval-territory although far from the same complexity. 270695

lagermonkey (725) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - MAY 10, 2005
Pours very hazy gold with an enormous creamy ivory head, even from a gentle pour. Head is thick and lacy as hell. Smell is yeasty and very fruity. Muscat grapes and hints of chardonnay. Very winey nose. Light spiciness, cloves and/or cinnamon. Damn this beer has a bite to it! Dry and bittersweet fruitiness. Alcohol flavors. A strident bitterness but not form hops as far as I can tell. Can’t put my finger on that taste but it dominates the palate. Almost like Campari? Juniper berries? Spicy clove in there. taste is nothing like the smell. Amazing complexity. Bitter and smooth. Sweet in the nose and dry on the tongue. really excellent. Could have stood to be aged and I really wasn’t expecting that from this brew. Lingering dry btterness stays around forever.Been wanting to try this for awhile and it has definitely peaked my interest to go back for more.

Draugh. Pale orange colour with a medium white head. Sweet fruity aroma and a sweet spicy fruity taste. Medium body and a sweet dry light alcoholic finish.

JensenTaster (1719) - DENMARK - MAY 2, 2005
(on tap) Mild pear-nose, kind of floating up the nose, cosy. Very soft mouthfeel; still fruity, the foamfeeling is really big, like whiped cream. Mellows out sweetly.

Terminus (3241) - Las Cruces, New Mexico, USA - APR 22, 2005
330ml bottle-Well, im entering this beer as the Blonde even though the bottle just said "moinette" and smelled like a banyard. pours a hazy orange hue with tons of carbonation and a huge fluffy head. aroma of banyard, horseblanket bigtime with subtle honey and cirtic tones and alot of spices (corriander, ginger). lots of brett in this beer as well to give it that funk. Lots of disty esters begin the flavors followed by nice subtle spice nots of corriander and honey. This is a pretty complex beer that i would definately try again knowning exactly what it is the next time.

aspidites (1272) - manteca, California, USA - APR 20, 2005
Bitter nad spicy tripel that is much more to my liking than sweeter example of the style. Hops predomiant the initial palate with good grass and pepper notes. Some candy sugar flavors are evident with a good amlt body. Pears and a touch of green apple come in toward the end with a good bitter finish.
