Bottle. The head is airy (big bubbles in it), fluffy and white in color. The beer is a hazy golden. Aroma is sugary and malty, perhaps some spices? Not sure, something else is there; nice overall! Taste is a smooth bitterness and malty sweetness. Carbonation is high and a bit stingy in the mouth. Finish is a mellow sweet and bitter.

The high carbonation was perhaps my biggest problem with this one. But, once I twirled it around a bit, causing the carbonation to diminish, the beer was more drinkable. In the end, I really liked this beer.

Swaroga (1441) - Brussels, BELGIUM - OCT 14, 2012
33cl bottle. Cloudy light amber with big white head. Nose : caramel , cheese and wet laundry, strong attack of ester fruits like banana, pear and cherry. Sip : Low to medium density with creamy texture. Decent carbonation. The beer has a tart sweetness that is followed by strong attack of bitter hops. Quite peppery and citrus seeds well balanced into notes of fruit esters. Really nice one. Personally I donít enjoy strong carbonation that this beer has and Iím sure it would be much greater from tap. Still this is a good beer.

Benzai (8908) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - SEP 27, 2012
33cl bottle @ home. Hazy yellow-orange color, huge active a bit soapy white head that lasts for quite awhile. Smell malts, lightly some metallic bitterness, yeast and leaves. Taste malts, a bit too much CO2, some bitterness, slightly leaves, slightly earthy, a hint of raisin and nuts as well. Interesting combination of flavors, but it doesnít really please me. Absolutely a decent Belgian Strong Ale, but far from being top of the notch. A bit too highly carbonated, body is ok.

Smurf2055 (1400) - Seattle, Washington, USA - SEP 11, 2012
On tap at Uber. Pours clear golden with no head. Smell is sweet honey, hay. Taste is barnyard and earthy sweetness, grainy finish. Very good beer.

cmonster (982) - Portland, Oregon, USA - SEP 3, 2012
Bottled. Pours cloudy dark orange-amber with a short white head. Soft aroma of powdered candy, kiwi-guava-cantaloupe, yeast, and dough. Also a touch of hops. Light-med fruity sweet flavor. Medium body, very creamy texture, good carbonation, and a light bitter, dry, yeasty finish.

JorisPPattyn (8031) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - SEP 2, 2012
Huge, towering yellowish head over veiled, very carbonated orange beer. Strong citrussy nose, spicy and yeasty aromas, smelling young. Bitter, resiny, rather harsh hoppy flavour. Orange rind, spicy background, some bitter orange liqueur. Feels indeed overcarbonated. Palate is again citrus/orange, but the CO≤ is too pervading by half. It has the merit of being original, but I wonder if they knew in what direction they were heading.

Bottle from Beer Planet. Nice golden body with slight head. Nose is hoppy, sweet not so really a Tripel. But lots of hops in there the flavour has many more malts and sweet and caramel. Very interesting combination. Well done.

crossovert (7866) - Illinois, USA - AUG 30, 2012
Dk why an american brewer has to import thier beers. At least it doesnít cost as much as evil twin or mikkeller. The pours is confusing. Not the prettiest tripel for sure. The smell is pears, paper, and honey. Taste is cloying and sweet. Nothing like a tripel. Spiced, pear, sweetness. Soy sauce finish. No hops to be found. Wtf is this?

Light gold. Bubble gum and banana-clove. Mild - a bit too much so - with just a bit of a hop overtone. Meh.

33 cl bottle. Orange body, slightly clouded. Itís hard to recognize something in the aroma, I smelled some smoke in it. The taste is a good mixture of bitterness and sweet. Not bad, but i expected more from this beer.
