brnandersen (3348) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - DEC 21, 2015
33 cl. bottle, huge gusher upon opening. What beer was left, poured in to a Tulip. Hazy, amber-golden colour with a huge, white head that fades to big, fluffy lumps. Fruity aroma with bretts, yeasts, caramel malts, spicy and earthy notes. Somewhat tart. Taste is lightly sourish with sweeter caramel-vanilla undertones. Medium to full body with a creamy texture and a fizzy carbonation. Finishes dry with tart fruits and bretts. Strange one - I’d expected sweeter with the bacteria less prominent. Still worth cleaning the table.

0,33l bottle @ One Pint Pub. Pours clear golden with a high foamy head. Aroma is slightly sour malts with some belge yeast. Flavor is slightly sour malts, belge yeast, alcohol and some hops. Good stuff.

Beertobealive (507) - Courbevoie, FRANCE - DEC 11, 2015
Pours a huge foamy white head. Aromas of light hops and lemongrass. Hazy orange body. Thick in mouth with feeling of marzipan. Pleasant balance but more suitable for spring or summer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

mjs (6530) - Helsinki, FINLAND - DEC 4, 2015
(Bottle, 0.33 l - BBE 05/2019, at One Pint Pub, 20151204) The beer poured deep golden and clear. Its head was medium sized and white. Aroma had fruitiness, tartness and spiciness. Palate was medium bodied with medium carbonation. Flavours were spiciness, tartness, sweetness, wood and bitterness. Aftertaste was woody and bitter. A pleaseant and complex yeasty brew.

Bottle at home (quite a gusher). Aroma is almost like a gueuze; acidic, funky, yeast, barnyard, light floral, quite nice, even though, probably not intensional. Taste is bitter sweet with fruity acidity, yeast, dry bitter ending, some tartness again and a slightly too harsh bitter aftertaste. Quite nice, almost worth the 15 min degassing and cleaning your ceiling… ;)

gcontano (20) - Lille, FRANCE - OCT 27, 2015
Large foamy white head over a golden hazy body. Nose is sour, with peach, orange and coriander with caramel malts. Light bodied with an oily texture. Sweet malts, light bitterness and alcohol taste in the finish, with dry sourness.

visionthing (4831) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - OCT 20, 2015
33cl bottle from Struise shop, Brügge. Pours clear rather pale golden with a very bubbely white head. Fairly yeasty and fruity aroma with funky notes, peaches, citrus and some slightly floral notes and hints of barnyard and brett. Moderate to medium sweet and surprisingly funky and acidic. Did kind of expect the more sweetish classic Belgian triple, but this is some really nice refreshing and tasty brew. Funky and delicious, but a bit too fizzy!

Muddy caramel pour. Aroma is mild tang. Taste is port quality, moderate sour, vanilla, lovely. Only big complaint - theres too much booze on taste. Decent stuff.

Bosbouw (2690) - Gemonde, NETHERLANDS - SEP 16, 2015
Gusher. Mooie geel oranje kleur met een grote kraag. Ruikt kruidig, beetje scherp, kruiden. Smaakt zoetzuur, beetje kruidig. Zoetzure afdronk. Beetje vlakke structuur. Mwa.
