mstockton (224) - Frankfurt, - JAN 15, 2013
Gave this one a couple points in some categories purely because it contains alcohol. Awful...tastes like someone dumped liquid soap into a beer. Smells like soap and tastes like soap. After 3-4 sips, I’ll be donating this one to the Frankfurt sewage system tonight. A shame...

Bière classée par le brasseur (on suppose qu’il sait de quoi il parle) comme une triple de froment. Qu’à cela ne tienne, ratebeer la classe comme une belgian strong ale. Alors il faudra que l’on m’explique d’abord en quoi une bière de 7,5 % abv peut être une strong... Ensuite une ale peut être une triple bien sûr, mais lorsque l’on a affaire à une triple on ne parle plus d’ale … (Ceux qui ne me suivent pas peuvent relire la phrase !!). Donc pour moi, et en accord avec le brasseur, il s’agira bien de ma première triple de froment dégustée et j’en suis plutôt heureux. Chacun connaît les blanches au froment, et celle-ci en a un peu l’apparence visuelle, mais elle est beaucoup plus forte et ensuite elle est refermentée en bouteille. Couleur jaune paille tirant sur doré clair mais brillant. Apparence avec un voile de levure et froment joli. Bulles moyennes partout et vives. Mousse blanche à flocons moyens en bas et crémeuse en haut. Arômes de houblon fleuri, fruits blancs, haie vive, malt clair, pointe de nectarine. 1ère bouche plutôt structurée sur un très beau houblon fleuri et malt clair. Arrière-bouche fraîche, nette, agréable. 2ème bouche complexe, sur le houblon et le malt. Le froment passe en finesse. 3ème avec de la finesse et de la délicatesse. Aussi une très belle amertume. Arrière-bouche qui ouvre la table. La longueur donne d’abord un nez superbe et fin. Les saveurs continuent à se développer. La fraîcheur est aussi présente. La levure est fine, précise, très adaptée. L’alcool fait un travail honnête et fin de soutien. La finale s’achève sur un parfum de froment. CONCLUSION : pour évaluer cette bière, il faut évidemment tenir compte de son contexte de bière de froment, qui ne peut être celui d’une strong ale par exemple (je ne vise personne) ou d’une vraie triple. Donc dans ce cadre précis, j’estime qu’elle fait une superbe prestation, sans faute de goût, avec beaucoup de finesse et de la complexité. On trouve aussi la fraîcheur, l’impression des fruits et de fleurs de houblon. Que demander de plus ?

Countbeer (4320) - Best of E-Town mit ein Brauhaus, NETHERLANDS - MAY 3, 2014
Bottle: Thanks Douberd: Served in a shaker: Big white head on top of a hazy to murky yellow colored beer. Aromas of porridge, meal, some dough and orange. Not really an inving aroma. Flavours of herbs, some fruits like peach and orange, lot of malts and porridge, light hoppy and bitter. Quite unbalanced. Aftertaste is bitter, malty, porridge, some herbs... Low to medium carbo, creamy mouthfeel, medium bodied and a creamy texture. Unbalanced, too much porridge and nasty malts, didn’t like it and couldn’t finish a bottle...

14/III/14 - 33cl bottle from Geers (Oostakker) @ home - BB: n/a (2014-281)

Bit cloudy beige beer, big fizzy white head, unstable, dissipates quickly, non adhesive. Aroma: pretty chemical, somewhat sweet, honey, yeast. MF: ok carbon, medium body. Taste: bit sweet, chemical, bit dirty, unpleasant. Aftertaste: bit sour, band-aid, bit chemical, very dirty, bit sourish, thinking about an infection here.

Douberd (2085) - Arnhem, NETHERLANDS - MAR 6, 2014
Bottle at home, 330 ml. Into a big tulip glass. Lots of bits and pieces of yeast made their way into my glass, but before they make the beer hazy the colour was a nice bright orange one, certainly a bit hazy already but not as cloudy as after the yeast fell into. Almost two fingers of white head, a bit thin, with quite good retention, leaving light lacing on the glass. Aroma of old cheese, but thankfully faint. Some alcohol in there too. Lots of yeast. Nuts. Starch. On the taste there is this old something again, like old cheese or old wheat, but it is not bad at all, it gives this beer another character. A bit salty. Obvious alcohol here, very boozy for an 7.5%. Some malts as well along with stone fruits. Medium body, high carbonation. Overall very good. High on alcohol surely and not the typical flavour profile you expect from a tripel, but good nevertheless.

Boring Belgian blond beer. Bit flat and watery, I don’t understand the added value of this one.

AshtonMcCobb (2375) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JAN 4, 2014
33cl bottle from Beerhive. Appearance - blonde with a fairly thin head and a slight haze. Nose - interesting combination of grapefruit from hops and pineapple from the yeast. Also some spice perhaps ginger. Taste - more grapefruit and pineapple with ginger. Palate - medium bodied with a big tangy texture and a dry refreshing finish. Overall - a good Belgian Blonde in my opinion.

wyzzywyz22 (1942) - Wirral, Merseyside, ENGLAND - OCT 16, 2013
Bottle, Carringtons, Chorlton. Hazy piss colour with no head and a fair amount of sediment. Weird nose, sweet and floral, vague marzipan. Flavour was slightly bitter. Yeasty and fizzy. Didn’t float my boat.

allmyvinyl (2924) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JUL 1, 2013
Bottle at home. Pours murky yellow with no head. Lemon, yeast, soap aromas. Tastes sweet and sour and odd. Sticky texture, average carbonation. Finishes... unusually. Something not quiet right with this.

Trappist1 (425) - Diest, BELGIUM - JUN 9, 2013
Met wat goede wil ruik je de tarwe. Heeft aanvankelijk frisse afdronk, maar dit moet helaas snel plaats ruimen voor een wat wrange, ijzerachtige smaak die blijft hangen. Qfknapper, zeker voor een tarwebier vqn 7.5%,

richc (239) - Bolton, Greater Manchester, ENGLAND - JUN 3, 2013
Pours cloudy yellow with a thin head. Aroma is a slightly strange mix of lemon and clove with a strong almost minty antiseptic note. Flavour follows aroma with a strong antiseptic aftertaste. It is possible that this is a one off infection or contamination but this beer should never have left the brewery. A pity since the other beers from this brewery have been pretty good
