alassio (71) - USA - APR 10, 2013
Pleasantly zesty with a light fruity density on the palate; a touch of apricot and then some light tree-bark hops. Sour, sweet, and bitter all vie for attention, with none of them succeeding and the flavors cancel each other out to make for an overall simple beer that is not all that pleasurable, really. If anything, the mouthfeel is the best thing about it. Don’t need to have it again terribly soon.

audryla (10) - LITHUANIA - AUG 24, 2014
Sour, orange and dried fruits notes in aroma. Golden hazy with white foam. Light sweetness, medium sourness in taste. Medium body, average carbonation, hidden alcohol with long sour/bitter finish. Quite good.

DwarfeD (905) - Amersfoort, NETHERLANDS - AUG 23, 2014
33cl bottle at home. Pare amber with a medium slightly off-white head with low retention. Medium to full body with moderate carbonation. Well balanced sweet and bitter tones. Caramel, yeast, brown sugar, herbs, spices, peach and some grass. A nice full flavoured belgian brew.

Net zoals de andere Westoek een bier met een bijzondere smaak die je echt eens moet proberen

aleigator (201) - North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - AUG 13, 2014
Hazy, golden yellow color, with a big white head. Bread, tart hints, orange, yeast and clove. Sour, with soft yeast and white-bread malts, unexpected sour, compared to the other flavors of the beer. Citraic notes with unripe orange, also an noteable fzziness, due to the dominating sourness. Lively carbonation creates a fruity, slightly spiced refreshing beer, with an unusual, well fitting sourness. Decent body, soft, pleasant mouthfeel. Has a refreshing, fruity aftertaste, with a subtle bitterness.

voyageurmike (25) - Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 17, 2014
Very carbonated, mildly sour with citrus aroma. Pleasant sweet finish, but not a standout Flemish ale I would choose again.

Shared a 33cl bottle. Pours a hazy deep orange colour with a thin white head. Yeast, dried fruits and caramel in the aroma. Average carbonation and medium body. Taste is quite balanced with some sour notes. Overall, a very good brew.

Grzesiek79 (3181) - 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,
