Theydon_Bois (10518) - 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.

BeerandBlues2 (10326) - Hanover, Maryland, USA - MAR 29, 2011
Bottle. Pours clear orange with a medium, fizzy and frothy white head, medium retention with good lacing. Aroma and flavor are heavy malt (cookie, straw), perfume hops, fruity esters, horse blanket, dust, pear, and alcohol. Full body, medium warmth and carbonation with a dry finish.

Bottle in Bruges hotel room, picked at the Struise shop in town. Dark red orange appearance with a light brown head and nice lacing. A bit citrusy, slightly toasty malty, fairly spicy, yeasty aroma. Tangy, dull citrusy, a bit chewy, toasty malty, well carbonated, fairly spicy flavor. Ok.

Benzai (9320) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - JUL 23, 2011
Hazy orange color, slight yeast particals present. Average white head. Smell fruits, slight hints of hop and orange. Nice taste, soft yet kind of stimulating, tickling. It makes me want to taste more so that’s a good thing. Very good carbo, very good body. Very evenly balanced.
