Draught at Ushi Tora. Pale gold, spritzy bubbles. Rather faint aroma of citrus hop, some butter, some hey and a touch of barnyard. Yeasty, slightly barnyard flavor with bitter grasses. Nice but a bit dull.

Draft, Darker blond coloured beer with limited carbonation and a medium white head. Stronger light herby and hoppy hinted aroma. Medium palate. Finish is light bitter sweet, somewhat dull ending with some short dry hoppy hints but nothing extreme (more expected). Medium

Tap (Moeder Lambic Fontainas, Brussels)
6 I get peach and sweet fleshy fruits, anna gets grapefruit.
3 Pale gold, healthy white head which settles to a ring.
6 Slightly acetony retronasals, but otherwise quite a pleasant grainy body.
4 Lovely grainy finish, pleasant crisp hops. With its carbonation, I was burping hops too!
14 8% I do not believe. Lovely and fruity. Not a big beer, very pleasant.

On tap. Pours light lemon color with nice foak of head. Smells a mix of citrus and floral. Gf said it smells and tastes like perfume. Definitely a mix of floral and herb, maybe just a hint of lemon. This is a unique beer. Taste better than you’d expect. A slight bitter finish. Worth a try but wouldn’t drink more than one.

Smells slightly hoppy and astringent. Pours a pale gold with a white, foamy head. Very carbonated. Super effervescent. Taste is slightly sweet with a bitter finish. Pleasant aftertaste.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
What a nice surprise this beer was! Aroma was nice. Smelled like an Orval. I know there is no mention of brett, but smells like wet blanket, light fruit and stale hops. Pour was a beautiful cloudy light gold with a lot of floating sediment and a huge rocky white head. Taste was very old but sweet. Dusty with a pale malt backbone and a nice drying stale hop character. Sweet fruit comes in and out. Fierce carbonation round this beer out. If I were rating to style, this wouldn’t get high marks as it’s not a great tripel, but as a beer it is outstanding.

Bottle shared by Marcus. Pours hazy gold with a foamy white head. Aroma is sweet, floral and herb. Med body. Flavor is a mix of fruit and flowers. Pleasant and flavorful. Mild hop aspects.
