Not sure if this is correct, but I got redirected to here. Drank a "Blauwe Kater" @ Blauwe Kater, Leuven. Warm aroma reminding me of christmas. Some caramel and burned malts. Darkbrown reddish colour, could have been by bad lighting. Warm full taste. Some sourness, cherry, prumes, caramel sweetness, alcohol. Sticky mouthfeel but again this warm alcoholic feeling.

Pours a bright orange color with a tall white head. Very sweet nose with a bit of alcohol. Some fruity esters, a bit of banana, and sugar. Light citrus peel notes and a bit of spice. The sweetness makes up most of the flavor. Tons of sugar and sweet citrus, some spice, yeast, and banana fruitiness. Light pear and apple esters as well.

Tried on tap at Mongoose versus Cobra in Houston. A Belgian triple with fruity notes, great beer! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

I have had this at both De Garre in Brugge and at its exclusive US location, Teresa’s Next Door--excellent in both venues. Mostly clear golden-straw body, large fluffy white head. Lemon, orange, pepper, spicy yeast in the nose. Flavor is similarly fruity, zesty and spicy. A nice, immensely drinkable 11+% beer that is great on a hot day by itself or with cheese and meets. Glad I can get this one mile from my office from time to time and certainly worth a glass if you find yourself in Brugge.

Copper with very large foamy head. Malts, apple, candy sugar taste and aroma. Hih alcohol kicks in at the end.

Perfect beer. An 11º beer very easy to drink. Stays in oak during 6 months to get a great old flavor. Highly recommended. The foam of this beer is simply amazing. It lasts till the end with very little bubbles because of the addition of Nitrogen. Great body.

Svesse (7850) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - AUG 11, 2012
(Draught at Staminee de Garre, Brugge, 17 July 2012) Golden colour with huge, off-white head. Fruity, malty nose with notes of tropical fruit, citrus and spicy hops. Fruity, malty taste with citrus, apricots, tropical fruit, candy sugar and a generous, spicy bitterness in the finish. Almost full body, with a soft and velvety mouthfeel. Slightly sweetish. Very nice and tasty tripel.

Tap in Bruges. Cloudy, golden orange appearance with a big white head. Rich straw, grainy, lightly cheesy, lemon citrusy, a bit musty aroma. A touch tart, dull grapefruit/lemon fruity, rich straw, sweet malty flavor with a dry finish. Floral, a bit strong, slightly boozy.

Nickls (2374) - Alexandria, Virginia, USA - JUL 14, 2012
Tap, CK. Smaller white head on a mostly clear golden yellow. Apples, slight pear, spices, and slightly sour grassiness. Flavor is a bit drier than indicated in the aroma which is appreciated, slight spice, vanilla notes and ripe light fruits. Lighter body that's a little sticky with vibrant carbonation. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
