2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
A steady pour into my teku glass produces a fat-three-finger thick, pale, off-white colored head. The beer is a bright, pale amber color that shows a brilliantly clear, gold / copper hue when held up to the light. The aroma smells of sweet grain, a touch of cotton candy, vanilla scented golden raisins, sweet melon notes, and just a candied pale malt character, which means the overall effect of the nose is on the sweet and cloying side of the spectrum. This has notes of sweet corn, DMS, and just too much graininess in general here in the nose.
Definitely sweet, with a grainy, sort of corn like sweetness that lingers on the palate for way too long. Light spicy notes provide an earthiness, some definite clove flavors, a bubble gum like flavor, and a dirty coriander water note. Very little balancing hop bitterness or flavors, in fact hop notes are not really noticeable at all here. The body has a medium fullness to it, there is quite a bit of carbonation, but for whatever reason this doesn’t help too much.
This is not so different from many a Belgian ale, but it is also the type that I really don’t enjoy; sweet, unbalanced, seemingly unrefined (to my tastes), and just cloying.

Deuxième Bersalis testée. Ca reste de faible intérêt. Peu de saveurs. Pour une triple ça reste de peu d’intérêt.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: JAN 5, 2015 Tap at the Delirium Cafe, Brussels. Poured a crystal clear straw colour with a frothy white head. The aroma is light yeast, resin. The flavour is moderate to strong bitter with a yeast, malty resin boozy alcohol palate. Medium bodied with soft carbonation. I’m no fan of triples but this one was very drinkable... but it was 9% and that "glass" seemed to take forever to drink. I can’t believe that they will sell you 2 litres of this stuff... If you can afford it... but anyone attempting that is surely heading to the Darwin pool!
