BigMomma (226) - Leuven, BELGIUM - FEB 8, 2011
33cl bottle, 3 weeks old.
Pours a slightly hazy dark golden tot light copper color with a steady white head.
The aroma has lots of spicy hops, some malts and still some yeasty presence. The taste starts faintly sweet and ends in a spicy dry hopbitter finish.
Decent brew but for the time being to young, so a retaste is necessary.

wyzzywyz22 (2108) - Wirral, Merseyside, ENGLAND - FEB 10, 2011
Bottle from the Struise shop. Poured a nice looking hazy orange colour with a plump off white head which faded to a lingering medium size. Interesting aroma that was fragrant and earthy, with notes of candy, yeast, alcohol and tropical fruits. Flavour was along similar lines, with some hop presence that manifested itself more towards the finish. Quite an unusual brew that I warmed up to as the glass was drained.

PotjeBier (2661) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - MAR 10, 2011
33 cl bottle from Cracked Kettle. Orange/amber color, with big almost white head, shrinking to a small blanket. Smells like a (sweet) fruity triple: apple, peach, with some spiciness. Flavor is not as sweet as you would expect from the aroma’s but slightly so, malty sweetish, with hints of spices & bitterness. Maltiness develops, then a dry, fairly bitter finish. Good & solid Belgian triple (or whatever).

oteyj (2139) - New Hampshire, USA - JUN 14, 2011
Slightly hazy pour with a large white head. Awesome spicy dough notes with lemon peel and banana abounding. The flavor holds more vibrant yeast notes, banana clove, citrus, and bread. Medium bodied palate with a doughy dry finish.

oh6gdx (25207) - Vasa, FINLAND - JUL 26, 2011
Bottled. Hazy orange colour, mediumsized foamy slightly off-white head. Aroma is fruits, some mild floral and yeasty notes as well. Flavour is fruits, yeast, some wood, quite sweet malts and actually a quite big bitterness lurking in the background and giving a nice dry bitterness in the finish and aftertaste.
