bestxiii (180) - Caen, FRANCE - APR 12, 2019
UPDATED: APR 12, 2019 Bue en pression au Vertigo (Caen) Nez d'épices, de sucre et de malt. Robe blonde dorée. Mousse fine. En bouche amertume de houblon, plein de malt, un peu sucrée.

DarkElf (3341) - La Jolla, California, USA - APR 1, 2019
UPDATED: APR 1, 2019 13-Jun-13 (330-ml bottle: Sample bottle from the distributor)
This beer pours a hazy, pale-golden body with at least an inch of whitish head that settles to a quarter inch and hold there. The nose offers malty, biscuity aromas with a hint of sourdough. On the palate, it's lightly sweet, doughy and biscuity, with some caramely flavor, a hint of tartness, and a grassy hop flavor, but very light bitterness. The beer is medium in weight, the carbonation is medium but very soft and creamy, and it's reasonably dry in the finish. Overall, this is an easy drinking, very enjoyable and pleasant beer. Good stuff.

Luneylane (439) - Taipei City, TAIWAN - MAR 15, 2019
UPDATED: MAR 15, 2019 A bottle at the Cafe Bastille yesterday evening. Aroma: dough, floral. Appearance: semi-opaque amber; big, beautiful white head. Palate: full-bodied and slick, fizzy carbonation, long and flavoursome finish. Taste: heavily bitter with sweet notes. Rather astringent, some iron. Very satisfying.

rodsquad (750) - Aberdeen, SCOTLAND - FEB 19, 2019
UPDATED: FEB 19, 2019 Bottle from Beermerchants dot com. Beer is clear and bright orange gold with a white head that didn't hang around too long. Nose has sweet fruitiness like pear juice and that peppery spice so familiar with Belgian beers. Dry grain builds drinkabilty. Booze starts to perculate through. The flavours match the aromas but just a little lighter. It's full bodied with lots of bubbly carbonation. Whereas the carbonation feels right, the rich textured body of a top drawer Tripel is missing here. There's plenty to enjoy here but I've simply enjoyed other Tripels more.

NobleTeam26 (209) - Kyiv, UKRAINE - FEB 16, 2019
UPDATED: FEB 16, 2019 Clear light yellow color, big foam. Fruits and flowers in aroma, actually this aroma is very common for Belgium. Taste is a little bit rough, very carbonated. Not bad, but not the best Delirium beer.

3.3
Grumbo (7826) - Ipswich, Suffolk, ENGLAND - JAN 20, 2019
UPDATED: JAN 22, 2019 19/1/2019. Bottle from Wine Boutique, Felixstowe shared at the second Kesgrave 50/50 bottle share. Pours hazy pale amber with a large off-white head. Aroma of toffee, malt, hops, fruit and yeast. Medium sweetness and moderate bitterness. Medium body, slight oily texture, average carbonation.

JefVerstraete (4632) - Oosterzele, BELGIUM - DEC 31, 2018
UPDATED: DEC 31, 2018 Hazy golden colour, white foam. Sweet nose, bit floral, some citrus, banana, yeast. Typical Huyghe flavours. Not very bad. Not very nice either.

3.3
bilcho1 (890) - Ruse, BULGARIA - DEC 25, 2018
UPDATED: DEC 25, 2018 330ml bottle from CBA, drunk at home on Christmas Day. Pours thinly hazy with a thick pillow of fluffy head, very heavy lacing and intense fast-rising carbonation for the first minute. Dirty gold in colour. On the nose, typically yeasty accents led by raisin, herbs, lemongrass and floral honey. In the mouth strongly bitter from the first sip, sweetness that rises through the palate, high carbonation but average for the style, frothy mouthfeel at first but giving way to dryness by the finish, a dash of sourness, flavours similar to the aromas but with more honey, alcohol presence, slight astringency before a long bittersweet finish. Overall, quite bitter for a BSA but refreshing and tasty.

sparta (1197) - Pärnu, ESTONIA - OCT 10, 2018
UPDATED: OCT 16, 2018 Õlle on selline jook, et iga uus kord kui klaasi või pudeli suule tõstad, siis leiad midagi uut, sõltuvalt tuhandest-miljonist pisiasjast, mis hetke olukorda mõjutavad. Seega kirjutan igale õllele selle sama teksti. Hindamiseks teen vaid ticki.
