heavy (2349) - Split, CROATIA - DEC 22, 2015
Mar ’15. A 0.33 l bottle, from Svijet Piva store, Zagreb. Thanks Zlatko! It poured almost clear deep golden body with huge head. Crisp, herbal and underripe orange peel aroma. Flavor was lightly bitter, spicy, also quite malty, like peaches, honey and typical vanilla with a touch of Belgian yeast. Medium to full in body. Alcohol was evident, even more so in the finish. Although pleasant, not really very good for the style.

Bottle 0,33L. Courtesy of Gregor. Slightly hazy, golden color with long lasting, fizzy head and lively visible carbonation. Moderate yeasty aroma with some bready notes. Taste is medium to heavy bitter with a note of salty snacks and heavy bitter finish. Medium body, oily texture, lively carbonation. OK tripel.

lello4ever (398) - ITALY - NOV 11, 2015
Dorata con media schiuma frizzantina. Al naso spezie, lievito. Carbonazione piuttosto elevata. Al palato ingresso abb dolce, prosegue secca. Sempre lievito e spezie in evidenza. Corpo medio, l’alcol si avverte bene. Buona ma sapore un po sottotono.

labeerinthum (303) - Milano, ITALY - AUG 15, 2015
Bottiglia. Per quanto l’intensità olfattiva sia normale, la persistenza olfattiva rimane corta. Il gusto al naso ricorda l’orzo. La schiuma è persistente e voluminosa, con bollicine medie, grossolane, esagerate, eccessive. La frizzantezza è a bollicine medie con vivace carbonazione. La limpidezza è velata e di colore giallo dorato brillante. L’amaro è deciso. Il corpo è medio. L’intensità gustativa è normale e la persistenza buona. Il gusto è estremo, dal grado alcolico elevato, piuttosto invadente e anche disturbante.

TtV (326) - Nijmegen, NETHERLANDS - APR 4, 2015
Bottle 33cl. Almost clearly yellow with a medium white top that lasts for sometime. Aroma is sweet with malt hints. The taste is less sweet as expected from the nose. There’s a spicy touch with some bitterness. Lots of Co2 too. The warm glow of alcohol is present in the aftertaste (in the throat).
