alassio (70) - USA - APR 10, 2013
Pleasantly zesty with a light fruity density on the palate; a touch of apricot and then some light tree-bark hops. Sour, sweet, and bitter all vie for attention, with none of them succeeding and the flavors cancel each other out to make for an overall simple beer that is not all that pleasurable, really. If anything, the mouthfeel is the best thing about it. Don’t need to have it again terribly soon.

33cl bottle poured into a tulip glass. Hazy deep amber with a massive beige head that is impossible to pour. Fruity nose (dried plums) with a hint of funk, yeast and spicy hops. Sweet caramel malt, fruity esters, lo bitterness, wine-like tartness and some alcohol. Med-full bodied, not very interesting, heavy and not easy to drink.

Borresteijn (4402) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - APR 5, 2013
33cl Bottle from ABS Drinks Winksele. Slightly hazy orange-amber colour, white head. Aroma of white sugar, borderline metallic, ripe sweet fruits, slightly cloying, hint of citrus and alcohol. Flavour is medium-sweet, light tart, floral malts, acetone, quite fruity, some banana and melon, lemon, sugar, bitter-tart finish. Medium-bodied, soft carbonation.

UPDATED: JUN 10, 2013 Pours a amberorange colour with a large off-white head. Aroma of fruit, malts and caramel. Taste is moderate to heavy sweet...fruity, caramel and in the back some spices...long smooth bitter finish. Bit too sweet though.

Theydon_Bois (6986) - The ’Sham, Surrey, ENGLAND - MAR 24, 2013
Bottle at home, from Dranken Geers, 24/03/13. Gusher Alert ... Lost 20/25 % of this one ! Hazed orange amber with a big light beige frothy head - good lacing ensues. Nose is orange peel, citrus, yeast, spice - corriander, candied sugars, rye bread. Taste lacks a little depth for an 8% beer, drinkable none the less with pale malt, yeast, citrus, spice, lemon, corriander, rye, caramel, sugars. Full end of medium bodied, fine carbonation - pitched perfectly, smooth on the palate. A decent enough triple but no world beater.

A lovely triple ale. Fruity notes on the nose and a relatively smooth and easy drinking taste. Nothing too surprising ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

dreadnord (1013) - San Diego, California, USA - MAR 10, 2013
Pours hazy golden orange with a small white head. The nose is a mix of citrus, floral bouquet, some light spice and molasses. The taste is medium sweetness and high bitterness throughtout eventually finishing with more bitterness. The mouthfeel is sticky, body is heavy and the finish is long. ,
