Triple hot but not enough bitter for me. Strong and difficult to drink. Amber copper. Raisin and citrus. Complexe mix of belgian sugars. Not so plaisant.

Fin (9316) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - JUL 1, 2016
UPDATED: JUL 2, 2016 Bottle from Hoogvliet supermarket in Monster, Nr Hoek of Holland. Netherlands, consumed on-board Stena Britannica or Hollandica (not sure which) Captains Suite room on way home, Friday 1st July 2016,riday 1st July 2016, Hazy amber with a white head. It’s a little sweet but the hops do show, I guess that it is clinging to the hop and craft beer coattails where others have led and it is probably looking at the success of the Duvel Tripel Hop Series and aiming to seek a bit of that glory. It’s not bad at all, it a good beer, just a little too sweet. A6 A4 T7 P4 Ov13 3.4

Bottle from Casa De Oro. Sweet up front with a bit of spiced hoppiness. Decent dry hop character, but this brew is extremely sweet. Drinkable, but lacking the dryness of the original.

Odeur assez spécial (pas trop fan) En bouche bonne amertume mais il y a un arrière goût qui ne me revient pas .. dommage Je préfère le version normale

Flesje. Gouden kleur, Fluffy kraag, plakkerig, langblijvend. Ruikt hoppig, mout. Smaakt zoet,wat weëig, alcoholisch. Meer zoet dan bitter.

Inoven (201) - Oirschot, NETHERLANDS - JUN 17, 2016
Flesje gedeeld. Rood - geel bier. Aroma van sinaasappel en hop. Smaak is fruitig en hoppig met een hint van sinaasappelschil. Hoppige smaak blijft lang hangen.

Samen met m’n schoonfamilie aan het genieten tijdens een familieweekend. Het bier is goudbruin van kleur, ruikt lekker hoppig. Het schuim is wel snel weg.

Garrold (3936) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JUN 15, 2016
Bottle. Lidl. Gold, with a soft haze. Lots of fine, streaming bubbles keeping alive a glossy topped, dense, just off white head. Great looking beer. Nose has the usual suspects. Bready. Yeasty. Soft clove. Trace of hop. Some herb. Taste is soft, bready, herby sweet. Light bitter. Full mouthfeel. Soft and foamy. Barely a trace of the ABV. Finish follows suit. Really good looking, tasty beer, at a bit above a quid a bottle. Nice one.

Bottle. Pale orange color, clear liquid, white head with a tin of yellow and pink. Strawberry bubblegum smell. Aroma of raisin, sweet white wine, caramel, nuts. Taste is heavy sweet, medium bitter. Very good stuff.

One of the best looking beers I’ve had in a long, long time. It’s a perfect pour, lovely color, lovely head that’s big enough and stays for such a long time! However, the taste is not awesome: far too much alcohol in the taste, yeasty and bitter, hints of lemon and orange peels. Aftertaste is bitter and dry, in accordance to what it advertises. It’s not bad at all, just not amazing, but certainly an underrated beer!

Dedicated to ManVsBeer (Wimpyjoe) because he is great. Bottle from Lidl. Amber beer with medium head and some lacing. Aroma of malts, spice and dry hops. Taste is yeast, malts, some sweetness, boozy and tangerine. Very good.
