tdtm82 (751) - Essex, - APR 19, 2011
Bottle; bought from magic yeast shop, 33cl, poured into Struise glass on an absolutely blindingly hot day. White lacing, murky copper-bronze appearance, aroma is floral hops, pine, banana, toffee, treacle, oranges, brown sugar. Taste is oranges, toffee, banana. caramelt, pine, gorgeous sprakling mouth feel, candy sugar, slightly burnt toast notes-mildy roasted and sharp on the tongue, alcohol, wood, a bit of burn but not too aggressive, floral hops, reasonably balanced. An interesting beer, think I hold this back a bit too long thu, Sorry Carlo and Urbs, my amateurish rate here.

Appearance a nice amber, but bottle had funky yeast sediment. Aroma a sweet and sour, not my fav. Taste simalar, not pleasant in my opinion, and quite spicy. Palate equally rough snd not creamy or smooth feeling. Overall dissappointed, wont likely go for this one again.

BeerViking (2772) - Brentford, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 23, 2015
Hazy gold with a thin head, lactic sourness on the nose plus faint apricot. Palate is fruity, estery, sour and lightly spicy. Like a sour-tripel hybrid.

fiammanghilla (675) - Genova, ITALY - JAN 15, 2015
Bottiglia 33cl, comprata da giangaspero e bevuta a casa. Ambrata con molta schiuma. Al naso è acida, con una punta di frutta. In bocca è carbonatissima, corpo medio. Conferma una certa acidità, malto e lievito in quantità. Finale amaro ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhold

MatthijsE (916) - NETHERLANDS - DEC 27, 2014
Bottle @ home. A good golden strong ale with a fruity estery aroma. Medium body. Alchohol hidden. Again fruits, esters, yeast, spicy hint and a hop balanced end,

olliejobbins (1097) - Dorking, Surrey, ENGLAND - DEC 26, 2014
330l bottle. After having lost half a bottle of beer, I opened this with caution. Only lost about 20ml.aroma is light hazy yellow with big bubbly white head. Aroma is extremely sour and tart. Taste is equally sour. Very dry and heavily carbonated. I quite like it but is it meant to taste like this?! Odd for this style

neongolden (598) - 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.

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.
