DavoleBomb (1867) - Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 29, 2012
Poured into a LA snifter. Lot C with an 8 and a 10 highlighted, whatever that means. 4.0 A: Deeply hazed orange plum color. Three fingers of beige, frothy head. Retention is very good and a good bit of lacing is left. 4.0 S: Plenty of spices in this. Cinnamon, nutmeg, and a touch of clove. Light pepper from the yeast. Currants, plums, figs, raisins, and dates. Lightly bready malts with a moderate sweetness. 4.0 T: Tastes like the nose. All the spices mentioned. All the fruits mentioned. The two components work well together. Lightly bready, sweet, with a mild bitterness. 4.0 M: Lighter medium body. Good moderate carbonation. Could be a bit spritzier and creamier, but good enough. 4.0 D: Solid beer. Great integration of spices and fruits. Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 06-14-2012 00:06:56

Storm_Warning (82) - Suffolk, ENGLAND - SEP 15, 2012
Currently drinking while typing. We start with a rich aroma of sweet fruity maltiness, almost smells like peaches and pineapple, no hints of alcohol on the nose really just sweetness and a light wood note. Pours a coppery amber colour with a bubbly off-white head which didn’t last too long. The taste is maybe a bit too sweet for a tripel, sweet Danish bread and malts are prominent and combine well with a gentle hint of oak. Slight resinous hops in the back of a pleasant aftertaste. Nice medium/full body, the texture is slightly slick with a soft carbonation. Very nice brew overall, just a bit too sweet for me I think though the alcohol is well masked.

Huhzubendah (3541) - Washington DC, USA - SEP 25, 2012
Side by side with regular Tsjeeses. The beer appears a hazy and murky copper hue with a thin cap. The aroma offers Belgian yeast, bread, booze, malt, caramels. Smells nice. The aroma and flavor are distinctly Belgian in nature. A graceful flavor and feel on the palate. Soft and elegant with just a gentle wrming alcohol finish. Lingering notes of caramels and yeasty bread. Fairly light in body with moderately low carbonation. Another solid beer from De Struise.

TET (2672) - Kaarina, FINLAND - SEP 28, 2012
A reddish brown beer with a weak and beige head. Aroma of fruits, dried fruits, lots of toffeeish sweetness, some yeast and spices; overally, aroma is fruitfull and sweet. Taste is also fruitfull and quite sweet, yeast, some strenght from alcohol, hint of marsmellows, drying spices that concentrates in the aftertaste. Also some dark fruits and even dry smoke can be found from the taste. Full bodied and quite slowly to drink. Quite controversial but tastefull beer, complex and fruitfull, barley wine -nuancees.

Cloudy amber colour. Caramel malts, fruitiness and spices make this an interesting tripel

Chudwick (2842) - Cincyucky, Kentucky, USA - NOV 26, 2012
11.2oz bootle - pours opaque orange with a finger of tan head and thin lacing. Nose is alcohol, pear, basement aromas, fruit, and brown sugar. Flavor simply adds toffee. Not what I would call a saison, but more of a yeasty tripel. Flat as can be. Hides the ABV very well. Mildly sweet. Expectations were not met, sadly. Would I drink more? Yes, but not for the price I paid.

Eructoblaster (3885) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 3, 2012
Bottle - 330ml. Cloudy dark amber body with ruby glints and an average off-white foamy/creamy head. Well balanced malty/hoppy aroma with fruity and herbal hints. Alcohol is very well hidden. Its complex malty/hoppy taste carries yeasty, fruity, vineous, and nutty notes. Ends with a long, warming bittersweet finish. Very nice!

Centje (34) - Bruges, BELGIUM - DEC 17, 2012
Color: orange (amber) with a moderate beige head. I can’t really say something on the aroma. A bit fruity perhaps, grassy hops, sugar, ...? The taste is moderately sweet with hints of caramel and candi sugar. There is also a big peppery alcohol complement. The finish is long and malty. It’s a fairly complex oak-aged beer.

Theydon_Bois (17221) - Hazlemere, the lower Xhitlerns, Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - DEC 18, 2012
Bottle at t’Brugs Beertje, Brugge - 01/12/12. Split with Nutty. Hazy mid amber with a decent frothy off white head which hangs out and makes conversation. Nose is caramel malts, toffee, woody notes, raisens, dark fruit, touch of booze. Taste follows, toffee, malts, wood, dark sugars, more mellow than the PBA - a little less boozey. Medium bodied with bite, soft carbonation, light booze in the finish. Decent drop.
