hopscotch (9380) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - MAR 22, 2008
Bottle... Cloudy yellow ale with a small, fizzy, white head. Lots of white protein floaties tooling about the brew. Yeasty, sweet-honey aroma with mild spice phenols. Medium-bodied with a watery mouthfeel and reserved carbonation. Sweet, spicy flavor with lots of pale grains, clove and/or coriander. Yuk! Finishes watery and lightly bitter.

Sammy (8849) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 21, 2005
sweet spice. Bottle work of art. Surprisingly refreshing summer drink. Yeast and cream but doesn’t seem a triple. Better than expected and popular with mates. Fruit, honey, suitably noticeably carbonated. Medium-light mouthfeel, lace and soap bubbles on top of golden yellow.

Drake (8765) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - NOV 29, 2010
Bottle at the 5th Annual Epic Beer Tasting in Richmond, VA, November 28, 2010. Pours a hazy lemon yellow color with a thin head. Some considerable floaties. Decent head retention and lacing. Aroma of pale malts, bitter leafy hops, peach and a nutty finish. The taste is candi sugar, pale malts and a spicy finish. Medium bodied.

Benzai (8748) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - JUN 12, 2014
Bottle @ weekly tasting shared with Dutchdrebus and Ansjelaah. Hazy almost opaque orangy color, medium sized white head. Smell malts, some fruityness, lightly sweet. Taste lightly malts, a slight fruityness, a bit more bitter in the flavor. Not bad.

leaparsons (8258) - Leicester, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - NOV 13, 2004
Golden with an off-white head of foam. Aromas are floral and hoppy with some nuttiness - oddly like some English bitters. Flavours are bitter and hoppy primarily with some sweet malts lurking in the background. Could be stronger on the final straight - the finish is spicy but lacking in oomph.

Quack-Duck (8032) - Down South, GERMANY - DEC 29, 2007
nice ceramic bottle with crowncap and swing-top. Golden colour, enormously large head. Creamy mouthfeel. Hoppy and pleasnatly malty. Well-balanced, slightly yeasty and fruity.

JorisPPattyn (8014) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - FEB 11, 2005
This is known as St. Sebastiaan Grand Cru in its country of origin. Pale, drab amber colour; virtually no head, just some transparant bubbles. Quite alcoholic nose, and definitely some oxidation. Dull, lifeless sweetish taste, cookies, old sherry, oxydized. Thin body, flat as a pancake. A beer that hasn’t stood up to - what? Bad storage, transport, age ...? BBD is indecipherable. Will have to try again.

jercraigs (8006) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 15, 2005
Bottle. Caffe Volo. Golden body, very small white head diminishes quickly. Alcoholic sweet malty aroma. Flavour is inappropriately over-run by the alcohol, with barely a glimpse of the underlying malt. Average palate. Disappointing.

DocLock (8002) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 16, 2006
Bottle from Super Saver. Great ceramic pop-top bottle! The pour was deep gold/dark straw with a minimal white head. The aroma was bready malty, with some fruit, hopcit, but not a lot of intensity. The flavor was pale malty and honeyfied, with some fruit (pear, apricot), and hopcit, plus some spicy floral notes. Not bad, but not a standout, either.

BMan1113VR (7867) - Los Angeles, California, USA - APR 11, 2008
Pours with a large, rocky head. Weak lacing covers the hazy yellow body. Sweet berry aroma with honey and some plastic and juniper. Tastes like a watered down Tripel with its spiceyness and then the yeastiness and bittereness. Fizzy, fizzy mouthfeel!
