3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
(Bottle @ VilleValla Pub, Linköping, Dec 12 2014) A hazy pale gold with a big white head and some lace. Aroma like a twisted triple, pale malts and slight banana, bubblegum, clove, dried fruit maybe, an unusual medicinal herbal funk. On the palate, more lactic, yoghurt with touches of lemon and maybe apricot, light wheat malt in the middle where there doesn’t seem to be much else going on, drying conspicuously and becoming bitter and medicinal in the finish, kind of an old school cough syrup flavour without sweetness. BItter orange peel flavour too. Maybe a touch woody in there. Fairly light with effervescent high carbonation. The idea of a sour Flemish take on a tripel is a nice one, but this seemed to be a little bit confused, flavours not well integrated, kind of gutless in the middle of the sip. Fortunately was not an infected gusher either, but not amazing.

Taste a bit like champagne and leaves an after taste of alcohol when swallowed.

Unfortunately the bottle expelled a lot upon opening since I tripped in the stairs. I got a sour taste. Cider and champagne like.

Arrière gout fort alcolisés. Gout suret qui fait vaguement penser à un lambic.
Goût de pomme/cidre.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Definitely needs a health warning - this review is based on the third of the bottle that ended up in the glass rather than on the floor. Reviews below confirm the same problem and suggest infection, which is quite possible. Straw colour, very cloudy, with a small white head once it’s all calmed down. Initially a huge sour aroma, which also calms down to something more akin to a tripel. Mixture of spice and sourness in the taste. OK, might have enjoyed it if it had lasted more than five minutes.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Flesje 33cl op 7°C tht mei 2019. Oppassen bij het openen en schenken: het bier is zeer levendig. Stevige wit schuim op een troebel goudkleurig bier. Aroma van sinaasappel en wat zure tonen. Droge volle smaak die overgaat naar medium zuur met een bittere afdronk.

Bottle at home. Needed 3 glasses to pour the one 330ml bottle. Hazy yellow. Aroma is sour, acidic. Sourness masks the flavour. Don’t think this beer should be sour being a triple. Disappointed
