BenOver (70) - SLOVENIA - AUG 21, 2014
Poured cold, first scent is of yeast. Not too aggressive, sort of a pleasant aroma. Pours blurry golden-brown with little head. Aroma evolves to slightly sweet. Taste is very full with low carbonation. Strong sweet taste is followed by a gentle slightly caramel finnish. A very very good beer!

EithCubes (4818) - New Jersey, USA - AUG 16, 2014
Bottle, 11.2 oz. Nose is very sweet, lemony citric pale malt in small measure with medium vanilla and very strong honey. Lightly spicy. Pours hazy golden, lacing with a huuge rocky beige head, careful going there. Taste is much the same, spicy golden malt with light alcohol warmth, big honey, fullish body with a small hole in the center. More than just a serviceable tripel.

Appearance is a bit hazy. Small, short-lived head. Metallic taste, with some fruity accents. Medium body with a soft carbonation. Not very special.

TtV (55) - Nijmegen, NETHERLANDS - AUG 5, 2014
Bottle 33cl. Clear gold with a huge white head. Aroma not too special; some yeast. Taste has bitterness but some spices too in the aftertaste. Good beer, but not especially for me.

Garlic_of_Doom (448) - SWEDEN - JUL 22, 2014
Hazy amber with a white head. Faint malt, slightly citrus/tart and very Westmalle Tripel in aroma. Sweet, caramel sugary taste, well balanced herbal hops, peppery yeast and slight alcohol. Full body, soft carbonation, dry. Short dry herbal and peppery after taste.

Pepinis (41) - Madrid, SPAIN - JUL 13, 2014
Cerveza de color dorado intenso y reflejos anaranjados. Muy buena formación de espuma y estabilidad. Hay una buena correspondencia entre el aroma y el sabor. Malta intensa tanto en el aroma como en el sabor que recuerdan a frutas amarillas como el melocotón, albaricoque, orejones y suaves notas de naranja. Alcohol muy bien integrado aunque más perceptible en boca. Cerveza encorpada y muy equilibrada.
