MrHangover (3999) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - DEC 4, 2012
Bottle. Pours a hazy amber coloured beer with a nice, off-white head. Aroma has yeastiness alongside some citric aromas as well. Really fresh and inviting. No alcohol detected. Flavour is sweet, yeasty esters and again fresh citric appearances are detected. Still no alcholo, wich a really good thing. Some malty notes are surely detected, delivering some sweetness into the balance. I would defintely classify this a tripel, giving the colour and taste.. Very nice brew..

Draft at Churchkey. Hazy orange amber pour smallish head. Nose and flavor shine with notes of peach, plum, raisin, fig, bread, and hints of citrus fruit. Sweet but clean, not cloying. Pretty tasty stuff.

keepersj12 (3063) - Sicklerville, New Jersey, USA - NOV 11, 2012
Typical all around for the style. Candy sugar, spice, some fruit in the aroma and flavor. A bit more bitterness than expected. Lots of booze, maybe a bit too much.

erickok (5449) - Leuven, BELGIUM - OCT 26, 2012
Cloudy amber body with off white, lasting head. Nice blend of fresh, modern and very forest-y hops with a Belgian clean yeast and mild caramel malt backup. Soft carbonation makes it a bit yeasty but pleasant to drink. Is just barely able to hide the alcohol, going a glowing warmth in the back. Fairly sweet and not as much raw hops as expected in the taste. That would have been nice. Modern aroma but old fashioned taste. Pretty expensive as well. (33cl bottle)

(Draught at Antwaerps Bierhuiske, Antwerpen, 19 July 2012) Hazy amber colour with frothy, beige head. Malty, fruity nose with orange, caramel and spicy hops. Malty, fruity taste with notes of orange, dried apricots, caramel and a generous spicy bitterness in the finish. More than medium body, with a slight sweetness. Nice one.

brokensail (16057) - Dublin, California, USA - OCT 3, 2012
A hazed orange, amber pour with a white head. a fair bit of banana ester to the nose along with some orange peel and apricot fruitiness. A good malt and sugar sweetness and a lot of sugar. There is a lot of caramel and sugar sweetness to the palate, too. A fair amount of banana and tons of apricot fruit flavor. A definite alcohol presence, however.
