TheKernOwl (24) - West Sussex, ENGLAND - JUN 17, 2015
Boldly bitter, but wears it well; like a more fruity (pear), more floral version of duvel. -   Nose: Fruit (pear? mango? lemon?) + flowers (buttercup?) = faintly marzipan? -   Body: Very small bubbles make their presence felt on tongue. Robust, bitter feel. -   Finish: A massive bitterness is working away at you, but the burn is ultimately a candied one.

Dorada clara, ligeramente turbia. Un dedo de espuma y efervescencia de tripel. Aroma malteado y cítrico. Carbonatación muy alta y mucho cuerpo. Tono alcoholico muy presente. Sabor potente, muy lupulado, floral y citrico en medio de gran efervescencia. Final muy amargo envuelto en gran calor. Hibrido tripel - ipa. Toda una copa.

_angst_ (3648) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - MAY 26, 2015
Draught @ Haket. Pours tiny hazy pale golden with a rather small white head that leaves some sparse trace on the glass. Smell is tiny malty, slightly fruity and tiny grassy with crackers, white bread, grapefruit juice, pears, marsipan, bubblegum, moist grass, pine needles, white sugar and lemon zest. Taste is sweet, slightly bitter and tiny fruity. Finish is sweet and tiny bitter with white bread, grapefruit, pears, marzipan, bubblegum, moist grass, pine needles, white sugar and lemon zest. Must confess this wasn’t what I was looking for but this is solid for what it is. Spicy and grassy with clear Belgian yeast bubblegum influence.
