Bottle. Smells of damp grain. Looks cloudy. Tastes dry and of heavy alcohol with a yeasty blah-ness. Drying clammy palate. Can you pour this over Christmas puddings and light it? Would probably be the best use.

Bottled (thanks Samuli!). Hazy deep golden colour with a small, but long lasting white fluffy head. Leaves some lace. Aroma is fruits, sweet malty notes as well as mild bready and some spices. Flavour is very similar in a quite nice balance. Also mild alcohol shows. Nice tripel.

CapFlu (5132) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 8, 2011
(50cl copper ceramic bottle) Purchased at The Strath in Victoria, BC, for $9.90. Pours a clouded, deep amber body with lively carbonation and a thin, white, foamy, quick-dissipating head. Nose of lemon and highly yeastiness. Good malt front gets broken by the citrus body. Does a good job hiding the ABV. Very smooth, almost milky texture. Good.

Botella, gracias al señor Plovmand. Unclear amber golden colour with a small but steady white head. Fruity and yeasty spiced pleasantly sweet aroma. Lively mouthfeel. Fruity spiced sweet yeasty bitter lightly acid like flavour with light alcohol. Sweet finish.

Anker (723) - Hillerød, DENMARK - MAR 14, 2011
Bottle. Pours hazy golden with a white head. Aroma is sweet malt, fruit, caramel and lime. The flavour is spicy with notes of sweet malt, corn and alcohol. Had a warm sample, which it probably didn’t benefit of.

manuchampions (1245) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 1, 2011
500ml ceramic bottle from 16th St. Liquor in West Vancouver. Pours a medium gold with high carbonation and thick, pillowy off-white head that lingers before finally reducing to two fingers. Aroma is yeasty, slightly sharp in hops, somewhat dusty...might be suppressed by the thick foam on top. Taste is certainly Belgian is style, funky, yeast predominant with a firm hop bite in the finish. The beer tastes slightly young, a tad too effervescent but still pleasing. Aging might really compliment it well. Finish lingers well with hops remaining on the tongue as well as some yeast. Pretty good.

UPDATED: JAN 14, 2011 500mL bottle, pours hazy golden with a big white head. Aroma of potent yeast, citrus, apples, and wheat. Flavour of apples, citrus, yeast, and some sweetness. Quite good.
