MiP (14562) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - APR 23, 2012
Bottle, 8%. Fruity aroma, seems sweet. Seemingly clear greyish amber colour. Good stable off-white head. The flavour is sweet and slightly spicy. Good chalky mouthfeel. The sweetness is balanced by a good alcohol level, but still a tad on the sweet side.

Theydon_Bois (14316) - Tourist Town (West), Berkshire, 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.

brokensail (14042) - San Leandro, California, USA - OCT 3, 2012
A hazed orange, amber pour with a white head. a fair bit of banana ester to the nose along with some orange peel and apricot fruitiness. A good malt and sugar sweetness and a lot of sugar. There is a lot of caramel and sugar sweetness to the palate, too. A fair amount of banana and tons of apricot fruit flavor. A definite alcohol presence, however.

Botle shared by Marcus. Pours orange amber with a transient beige head. Aroma is lightly fruity, mildly yeasty. Med body. It’s dry, yeasty, and a bit earthy. Quite a different tripel.

Bottle. Poured cloudy dark amber with an average frothy white head that was mostly lasting with good lacing. Moderate complex citrus and yeast aroma. Medium to full body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium balanced bittersweet flavor with a medium bittersweet finish of moderate duration. This is a smooth complex beer

Ins Glas ergießt sich ein trübes oranges Bier mit schöner Schaumkrone. Geruch sehr malzig, röstig, dunkles reifes Obst. Geschmack röstmalzig, stark malzig, überreife Früchte, Karamell.
