Picked up all 3 of these Xtrem Hop series (Columbus/Citra/Sorachi Ace) and although they all pour and look like a tipical tripel I was left rather disappointed with the taste. Where’s my Extrem(e) hop goodness? The name is not fitting with the beer. Nice beer but not Extreme in any way.

Creamy mellow aroma. Hints of citrus way in the back. Nice bitter flavour. Some caramel.

bierkoning (9999) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - JAN 25, 2014
Corked bottle from SVD, thanks! Deep golden color. Grassy, slightly herbal citrus aroma with grapes. Firm grassy, slightly herbal hoppy flavor with citrus, blackcurrant and grapes, A shorter aftertaste as expected.

Benzai (7301) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - JAN 2, 2014
75cl bottle shared with Dutchdrebus, Ansjelaah, Martinus and Joes @ weekly tasting. Clear orange golden color, small white head that leaves fair lacing. Not a lot of aroma. Taste lightly malts, lightly hops, lightly herbs. Typical sorachi ace flavor and bitterness. Average to medium body and carbonation.

Martinus (2744) - Nijmegen, NETHERLANDS - JAN 2, 2014
Clear gold, white head. Aroma of mint, malts, fruity hop. Malty flavour, light bitter, bit fruity. Fruity finish, mint, thyme and laurierdrop.
(from 75cL bottle @ joes’ place. Thnx for sharing, Benzai!)

timmwillum (63) - BELGIUM - NOV 3, 2013
Meget speciel og noget bitter øl med masser af humle (surprise). Vinder bestemt ved nærmere bekendtskab. Sødme, syre, krydderi og højt kulsyreindhold.

Bart (2941) - Brussels, BELGIUM - SEP 29, 2013
75cl Bottle at home. Darker blond to light amber coloured beer with lots of carbonation and a large white head. Fruity grassy and sweeter hoppy hinted aroma. Full light sprankling palate. Finish is sweet herby bitter with a longer bitter hoppy noted ending. Decent IPA. Not bad.

SVD (485) - NETHERLANDS - AUG 24, 2013
75CL bottle at home, hazy orange beer with a large head that shrinks in size quite fast, aroma is hoppy and wood, taste is hoppy and wood, good beer.

vickey9 (448) - Brussels, BELGIUM - AUG 22, 2013
Clear orange colour with creamy white head. Nose evokes peaches and citruses, both really ripe. Body and carbon are medium, texture is slick. Taste is sweet and bitter. Palate is dominated by citruses and hops, hints of hay, cloves and coriander. Finish is bitter and hoppy. B@VBF2013.
