HenrikSoegaard (10786) - Randers, - JUN 21, 2012
Bottle. Frothy off-white good mostly lasting head. Amber colour. Moderate malty and hoppy and yeasty aroma. Some fruit and week citrus. MOderate bitter flavor. Nice fruity notes. Average moderate bitter finish. Oily palate.

neongolden (560) - Linköping, Sweden/Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 19, 2014
(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.

Nicolas_M (8) - BELGIUM - DEC 18, 2014 does not count
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.

motelpogo (7044) - Plzen, CZECH REPUBLIC - DEC 14, 2014
bottle from beergeek in prague. hazy pale amber with a frothy head; aroma of candi sugar, ricotta-stuffed zucchini flowers; hints of menthol, warming alcohol; very drinkable

Sjohnh (251) - Coventry, West Midlands, ENGLAND - DEC 12, 2014
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.

mschaefer (23) - Tilburg, NETHERLANDS - DEC 7, 2014
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.

Mothroy (82) - - NOV 23, 2014
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

Pyrmir (3544) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - NOV 14, 2014
330 ml bottle at Pipes of Scotland. Cloudy yellow with massive white head. Aroma fruity, pepper, lots of yeast esters and dry malt. Taste is dry, grainy, lots of yeast, fresh dry malt notes with a drug, grainy and fruity finish. High carbonation. Nice and fresh
