snzcujo (282) - - NOV 14, 2012
Tasted from the bottle, on 13/11/2012. Pours of hazy copper/brown color with a huge head. Aroma is mild and caramely sweet upfront, with hints of lollipops in the end. Taste is normal, with notes of dark fruits, caramel, hints of bread as well. Huge alcohol tone in the aftertaste. Neutral. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Grzesiek79 (3114) - Radom, POLAND - JUL 12, 2014
Dobre wned prawie bardzo dobre. Piwo prawie wyskakuje z butelki a juz zaczyna sie piana tworzyc podczas nalewania ale w butelce. Po prostu sama wychodzi. Nie da sie jej opanowac. Stanowi wiekszosc po nalaniu niz piwa. A piwo jest kolory pomaranczowego silnie zmetnionego. I o jaskrawym odcieniu. Zapach morelowy i brzoskwiniowy a takze nieco pieczonych jablek w tle. Smak typowy dla tripla ale z cala masa tych ze owocow. Alkohol ukryty. Tresciwe i smaczne piwo.

A good golden strong ale with a fruity estery aroma. Medium body. Alchool hidden. Again fruits, esters, yeast, spicy hint and a hop balanced end,

Lore (982) - Budapest, HUNGARY - JUL 4, 2014
very hazy orange colour, medium sized dense yellowish head; aroma of dried fruits (mostly figs and plum), yeast, earth, some caramel and hints of dessert wine (with raisin notes); taste of caramel, slight citrus, yeast, dried fruits (plum) again and hints of spicy alcohol; really good Belgian strong ale

L_inconnu (58) - SWITZERLAND - JUN 24, 2014
Couleur translucide, jaune. Mousse légère. Carbonation avec petites bulles mais nombreuses. Au nez, on dirait une gueuze; surprenant. En bouche, elle est entre une bière sucrée et une Tripel, mais légère. LES LEVURES DU FOND RESSEMBLENT À DU SUCRE DE CERISE. Une découverte surprenante

Vignale (1979) - Malmö, SWEDEN - JUN 22, 2014
Flaska från Etre Gourmet. En riktig skumkanon. Förlorade minst halva flaskan. Brunorange vätska med jästpartiklar och högt smutsvitt skum som blldar gardiner och lock. Sötsyrlig doft med karamell, vinäger, röda bär och vildjäst. Sötsyrlig karamellig smak men en hel del jästsmak som är trevlig, tranbär, rosevin och lite ekfat. Osäker på om flaskan var okej. Hade i så fall kategoriserat den som en wild ale eller Oud Bruin. Riktigt god i alla fall. Synd bara att så mycket försvann.

Drunk from 33cl bottle bought at Malting Pot, Brussels. Very unusual beer. Like a cross between an IPA and a Flemish sweet sour brown ale. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

MarcoDL (1995) - NETHERLANDS - JUN 12, 2014
Tastes like a Belgian version of a black IPA. Tasty body of yeast and malt, with some nice fruity bitterness. Good.

Drank with Masum 11-6-2014. Really liked this beer. Its like a rich barley wine. Sweet, gerstewijn taste with rich accents. Carbonation as well. Every sip was enjoyable.

Hazy amber with thin white head. Aroma citrus and yeast. Taste medium bitter, light sweetness and sourness. Quite full mouthfeel, fair carbonation. Very good.

ST247 (354) - Antwerp, BELGIUM - MAY 19, 2014
On tap @Schooltje. Tried next to the Westoek X. This one is a bit darker than the X, more amber. Aroma is balsamic vinegar, sour, spicy. Taste is a bit alcoholic, fruity, spicy but also bit watery.
