Excalibur123 (133) - Soria, SPAIN - APR 1, 2014
Color amarillo oro, buena cabeza de espuma de burbuja grande que permanece en la copa; aromas a malta dulce, uva moscatel y caramelo; en boca entrada suave con notas picantes y pos gusto dulce y aterciopelado. Alcohol bien integrado, sus nueve grados no se aprecian en exceso, buen cuerpo y carbónico medio, cerveza en la línea de sus hermanas pero es más compleja y sugerente.

Swaroga (1340) - Brussels, BELGIUM - FEB 28, 2014
33cl butelka. OCZY : piwo jest metne i pomaranczowe. Piana jest jasno-szara, zbita i duza o cienkich pecherzykach. NOS : piwo ma slodkie aromaty karmelu, tarty, moreli, banana, pomaranczy. Alkohol. USTA : mocno nasycone piwo o kremowej teksturze i srednio gazowane. Jest slodkie ale nie do przesady. Bogate w estry owocowe, piwo staje sie delikatnie kwaskowate i alkoholowe. Wyczuwam gorzkosc alkoholu i chmielu ale jest ona bardzo umiarkowana. Posmak jest owocowy, lekko kwaskowaty i slodki. ODZCZUCIA : przyjemne w ustach geste piwo o sporej dawce alkoholu. Dobrze zrobione bo nic za bardzo sie nie wychyla chociaz mozna powiedziec, ze dominuje smak slodkosci. OCENA : smak : 7/10 pijalność : 5/10

martjoobolut (711) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JAN 23, 2014
BB 12.2014, 0,33L bottle. Pours golden with huge white head. The head stays. Aroma is very intense, has a lot of fresh fruits, apples, sourness. Taste is sweet honey, fresh fruits, yeast, and alcohol. The finish is fruity with sour and some hoppy bitterness. Overall: not too complex, but rather nice and refreshing beer for the ABV. The sweetness may be little too much for some, but I don’t mind it.

Nose - burnt oranges Taste - more butnt oranges plus some spice and a bit of cream in the background. Palate - medium to full bodied. Well hidden alcohol. Nice tangy texture. Dry tangy finish Overall - yes good beer and scarily drinkable at 9.5%.

zenkis (572) - Ogre, LATVIA - JAN 1, 2014
05.2013th bottle from tripel glass,
Pours hazy amber with medium light-beige top, good lasing from the top of the glass. Aroma vanguard malty with hops touch, berries, a bit boiled vegetables as well - later in taste too. Taste medium to medium plus sweet, minimal bitter. Above medium body, pulp texture, minimal dry finish, sweetish aftertaste, too light astringency for Belgian ale, yeast presence is light to minimal in flavor, above average carbonation. Nothing special brew.

BeerGolem (682) - Quebec, CANADA - DEC 19, 2013
Bottle 330 ml. Pours slightly hazy copper with frothy white head, quickly disappearing. Aroma is quite rich: caramel, malt, alcohol, nuts, slight lemon, apple, herbal. Unfortunatly, it also has some note of rubber which is a little unplesant. Taste is really malty, with lots of caramel. Sweetness is fairly well balanced. Full bodied with pleasant warming alcohol. I was kind of disapointed since I thought this was a quadruppel (says quattro on the bottle), so I guess I had unrealistic expectations about this one. Still, fairly enjoyable.

tricksta_p (1098) - Steenwijk, NETHERLANDS - DEC 17, 2013
Pours a hazy golden/amber with a tall white head. Aroma of malt, fruits, yeast, plenty of spices, slightly hoppy. Yeast is quite pronounced. Peppery bitterness in the aftertaste. Good brew!
