FlacoAlto (3810) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - JUN 15, 2013
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.

jmgreenuk (5320) - Kuala Lumpur, MALAYSIA - JAN 4, 2015
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!

Lowenbrau (2417) - Asturias, Oviedo, SPAIN - DEC 8, 2014
330ml bottle from El Lúpulo Feroz, Oviedo. @home 08-12-2014.
BBD: 10/2015.
In short: yeasty golden ale.
Pours quite hazy deep gold with frothy white head. Some chunks of sediment. Moderate head retention, some lacing. Yeasty, bready, spicy aromas. Medium body, high carbonation, crispy texture. Taste follows the nose, average belgian tripel, quite yeasty profiled, some raw cereal notes, some harsh notes, maybe a bit overcarbonated. To be honest, i just grabbed this one when i see Beersel was the brewer, but then realized it was a contract beer. Nothing remarkable.

Fort goût d’alcool. Bière asser amer. Arrière goût intéressant qui change. Bière quelconque.
