GT2 (7901) - Carlsbad, California, USA - MAR 9, 2013
Tap at Iron Horse tap room. Pours clear, low haze perhaps bright golden. Larger white foam. Decent lace. Nose is dms, broccoli, sauerkraut, nasty garbage. Fermenting banana peels and compost. Some fusel notes. Taste is spicy pear, chalk, astringent paper. Acrid palate. Stale keg perhaps. Yuck. Boo this beer style.

Had this on tap at Cafe Bruges, Carslile Pa. It was a nice and strong tripel, not too sweet. This stood out from the many beers that night.

Drank this as Waagstuck ages ago. Cloudy yellow, offwhite creamy head amplified by the tulip glass. Fruity, slight belgian funk - dry yeasty. Peach, melon, apple, slight cheese. Oily mouthfeel. Denies its strength while drinking, powerfull later on.

Very permufey across the whole range, aroma, taste, just everything. Maybe the worst if the style I’ve had.

kidmartinek (3320) - austin, Texas, USA - JAN 4, 2013
Just like a tripel but a little creamy. Hazy dark orange color. Weak white head. Aroma... can’t smell it. Flavor... creamy Belgian yeast. Ok, I guess... but not really.

unstablefable (210) - SCOTLAND - DEC 18, 2012
Pours a hazy golden, orange with a massive white head, aroma is spicy, floral perfume, under ripe bananas alcohol is present but not offensively, taste is initially sweet, but soon taken over by the sourness, nice dry finish. The mystique and exclusivity does add an extra aspect to this beer, but it's still a lovely beer in its own right.

SudsMcDuff (5664) - .....Manchester United.........., Texas, USA - NOV 23, 2012
Tap .. deep gold .. great foam .. honey, yeast, and lots of booze .. wow, a heavy alcohol driven beer .. way to out of whack to be truly enjoyable .. . . My wife lies to me. My beer company betrays me. Americans are giving Mexicans diarrhea. What the hell is going on here?

Is this beer better because of its exclusivity? Maybe. I remember trying the most easy drinking 11.5% beer I can remember. I tried so many beers in Bruge that week but this was the best. Wonderfully sweet and very acquired. Trying this before or after a IPA or stout would make this foul. But after that 3 sip, you are in heaven! Definitely in my top 5.
