77ships (3763) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - JAN 4, 2013
33 cl. bottle @ Delirium Cave, served @ cellar temperature. The bottle was clearly severely aged but no clear indication as to from which year this might be on the label. The label fell off from the bottle due the fact that age had dissolved the glue & the paper was noticeably discolored from age. Lots of sediment in the bottle as well. The beer itself had evolved far beyond the point where you could even estimate what the original style or flavours might have been. Poured a very murky, opaque reddish amber with lots of yeast in it with a solid but small off-white head. Smell carried a light but not overt lactic sourness, slightly infection-like, moldy, heavy on old yeast, yogurt touch, slightly earthy & very old + very soft fruits. Taste is lactic sweet with some yogurt, heavy on old yeast, lightly moldy & earthly with sticky herbs, light infection, moldy bread, touch fruit, sweet malts in the back & some sweet chocolate. Added chocolate & malts, eventually actually got me into this beer. Carbonation is lightly lively but clearly muted with quite a hazy body.

islay (1124) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - NOV 19, 2012
11.2 oz. bottle. Aroma features melon, brownie, cherry pie, whipped cream, honey, and white grape juice scents. Pours a hazy, lightly cloudy brass with some light-colored suspended particulate. Effervescent: Fast-rising bubbles. Moderate amount of taupe head. Dull, heavy flavor features honey, white grape juice, and cream elements. A bit boozy. Nothing special in the flavor. Dull, bitter aftertaste. Full body. Frothy and fizzy in the palate. Disappointing.

It pours a haze golden color with some floating yeast particles. The aroma is beautifully complex, mainly fruity: banana, citrus, apricot, mellow, apple, and so on. It is also very spicy. Pepper is in there absolutely. The taste follows the aroma but predominantly spicy. Belgian yeast is felt. Medium body, and carbonated as belgians. Overall itís a very well done triple. I felt it delicated but present and with personality. Iíd go for it again.

MrHangover (2456) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - NOV 3, 2012
Bottle. Cloudy yellow color with a nice white head. Yeasty aroma, some sweet spices and bready aromas. Flavor is like an average Belgian ale, very yeasty and well carbonated. Realty nothing special, just an ok beer.

Swaroga (1340) - Brussels, BELGIUM - OCT 14, 2012
33cl bottle. Yellow/orange with tiny bits in it and with medium bubbly white head. Nose : distinctive notes of fruits like banana and peach. Milk bread, some little tart, little honey and spices. Sip : strong carbonation, low to medium density with fluffy carbonated texture. Strong esters with sweet tart start. Fruity esters balanced into hoppy flower aromas and ending with gentile, peppery bitterness. Aftertaste is a bit estery and bitter. Overall this is not something I will come back to unless not much choice.

Sregnar35 (972) - Rotterdam, New York, USA - AUG 12, 2012
Smells like peaches and tangy fruit skin. Laces nice with a hazy straw body. Great thick mouthfeel. Sweet up front with a very bitter, drying finish, somewhat unpleasant. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
