Bottle. Orange pour with half and inch of white head. Spice, citrus, banana, candy. Not too sweet like some other triple. Great balance of Carbonation and sweetness. Almost creamy smooth and flavorable finish.

Douberd (3441) - Arnhem, NETHERLANDS - NOV 17, 2012
330 ml brown bottle, poured into a tulip. I poured it very slowly as not to disturb the yeast on the bottom, but nevertheless, I got a huge head of four finger, off-white in colour, slighty froathy in texture. After a while half of it is gone, leaving quite a lace around the glass. The remaining half of the foam has an excellent retention. All that on top of a deep orange, copper-like coloured beer, and while tiny bubbles are finding their way to the surface. Aroma is fruity, with notes of yeast, wheat, alcohol, some orange peel maybe and spices. Taste is also fruity, mostly citrus fruits and mainly on the finish. Alcohol is notable. Bubblegum and apple notes Medium to full body, average carbonation and very dry on the palate.

FROTHINGSLOSH (5664) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 10, 2012
Sampled from an 11.2 oz brown bottle this beer poured a dark amber color with an enormous fluffy yellow-cream head that lingered and left great lacing. The aroma was sweet honey, table sugar, mixed ripe fruits, bread and pepper. The flavor was tart with a strong citric acid presence and notes of pear, apple, bread, honey and pepper and followed by a boozy element. Long finish of sugar, fruit, bread and a touch of sulfur. Medium body though a bit overcarbonated. Nice.
