Sammy (9824) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 29, 2004
little douginess and yeastiness for a triple. a prominent metallic wateriness that didn’t prevent drinking but left an unsatisfying aftertaste. Some spice, lemongrass and corriande,rberries not too alcoholic. Too malty sweet.

Dogbrick (9814) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - FEB 10, 2005
This beer kind of strikes me as a "beginner’s Belgian". Pours a cloudy dark yellow color with a thick and foamy white head. Decent lacing. Champagne-like aroma with some fruit and yeast. Medium-bodied with a pleasantly fruity flavor, along with some yeast, pepper and light hops. The finish is citrusy and lightly spiced. The beer is well done, and despite not being very complex it is a pretty tasty brew.

Rune (9501) - Tromsø, NORWAY - DEC 18, 2008
330ml bottle bought at Luvians in St Andrews when I could not find more Scottish beers to drink. Very lively when open – only half of the content found its way to the glass. When it finally settled the body colour could be described as hazy golden with a thin, white head. Aroma of spicy malts and late fruits. Tangerine fruits in flavour, joined by yeasty hops and liquorice sweetness. Medium bodied. Sweet, bit still decent drinkability [09.11.2008].

pivnizub (9482) - Bochum, Porúří, GERMANY - APR 4, 2009
Bottle: Golden, lively carbonation, smaller persistent off-white head; sweet-sourish fruity nose with a tinge of vanilla and some cellary traces; moderate to robust sweet-sourish flavour, medium to full bodied; sweetish-fruity (lemons, green apples) finish with a light acidity and some throat-warming alcohol. Unusual, but very interesting....

JoeMcPhee (9004) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 10, 2004
Huge rocky and lasting head over a cloudy yellow beer. Fruity, spicy, lightly sour aroma with abundant pear/apple character. Lemony citrusy smell here also. Light-bodied, with loads of apple/pear fruit and spice. Quite good, but lacking in complexity.

Bottle. hazy gold with an off-white head. Aromas are thin lemon, pepper and alcohol. Flavours are lemon, apricot, honey and yeast. Dry and bitter on the finish. Thinner in character than I expected.

MoritzF (8860) - Ottobrunn, GERMANY - DEC 14, 2007
(33cl bottle, Petrus Gouden Tripel, courtesy of king Edo) Hazy, golden colour with a massive, slightly yellow foamy head. Moderately yeasty, sweet malty, slightly wheaty and fruity (orange, lemon) aroma with light glue-like phenols. Sweet and slightly acidic flavour, medium bodied with a lively, slightly fizzy carbonation. Yeasty and lemon-fruity taste with a light vinous feel; medium-dry, moderately sour-fruity finish with a tinge of hops

UPDATED: JUN 1, 2004 2nd bottle: Better than the first but still kind of bizarre. Hmmm... 1st bottle: lightly hazy yellow with a very nice billowy white head. Getting some really strange flavours out of this one. That don’t taste like the flavours that would indicate it is off but are not entirely pleasant. I have a second bottle so hopefully it will be more up to snuff.
