22/VI/2012 - on tap @ Multatuli - BB: n/a (2012-642)
Clear dark orange to copper beer, small creamy off-white head, pretty stable, little adhesive. Aroma: green and ripe banana, wet grains, bit metallic, bread yeast. Reminds me a little of a Tripel Karmeliet. MF: soft carbon, medium body. Taste: lots of grains first, then very metallic, green banana, quite some yeast, unpleasant bitterness, little floral, overripe plums. Aftertaste: overripe banana, yeast, bit metallic, green banana. Plain weird, not my cup of tea.

Goed aroma met vanille, fruit, mout. Koperblonde kleur, goede kraag die behoorlijk blijft. De smaak is bitterfruitig. Helaas wat weinig body en nasmaak. Niet zo goed.

Hazy dark blond colour. Aroma quite bready, yeasty. Soft malty taste but yeast dominates too much. Hints of smokiness in the finish.

Bottle from Glimburger, Maastricht. Hazy amber color with nice huge frothy white head. Aroma of toffee, caramel, syrup. Taste, almost the same. Strong alcoholic finish .Little bit sweet for me, but drinkable.

(bottle, 33cl) Hazy, deep golden to amber colour with a big and dense off-white foamy head. Cara-malty yeasty and fruity aroma with notes of apricots and ripe apples. Sweet flavour, medium to full bodied with a moderate carbonation. Caramely malty and slightly bready taste with a fruity and slightly musty touch; sweet and hearty cara-malty finish with fruity notes and a well-masked alcohol. 14.X.11

Light orange/yellow colour, white head. Aroma of sweet malts, caramel, slight hops and Belgian yeast, some citrus. Flavour sweetish, malty, some yeast. Bit thinnish body and somewhat missing the hop bite that makes a good tripel great.

Brown amber colour, slight white head. Aroma of raisins, sherry, strawberry, dried apricot and silage. Sweet flavour, raisins, caramel and light sherrry. Rather thin body. Short finish of dried fruits.
Nice, good combination with sweet potatoes.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Pours a hazy orange with a high, long-lasting head. Nose is citrus, turbinado sugar, and a faint herbal note. Quite phenolic on the tongue -- echoes of the citrus and sweetness remain, along with malt and stone fruit. Finishes clean. Good.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Small white head on top of a cloudy darker orange amber colored beer.
Smell malts, caramel, hops, some spices and herbs with hints of fruit and yeast.
Taste is a nice mix of (darker) fruits, yeast, malts, bitter, some hops and sweets.
Sweet light bitter aftertaste.
Low carbo, soft tingly mouthfeel, medium body and a light watery/creamy texture.
