Hermod (7578) - Vantaa, FINLAND - JUN 4, 2013
33cl bottle from Alko. Poured folden with a thick, lacing, beautiful white head. Aroma has yeast, spicy, citrusfruity notes with some barnyardy, funky notes as well. Flavor has barnyard notes, fruits, hops and yeast notes, but also quite a lot of residual sugar, noticeable in the finish. Otherwise a very tasty tripel.

BitchPls (803) - FINLAND - MAY 5, 2013
A little hazy yellow beer with a huge foamy white head. Aroma is very mildly yeasty. Quite crispy carbonation yet still relatively soft and round mouth feel. Lots of sweet and yeasty floral notes. Some alcoholic notes but not disturbingly so. Quite a lot better than the Vivat blonde with a lot more solid body and nicer texture and even taste. Quite similar otherwise. This is a big step for the better yet I would hope the aroma would be stronger! Mildness of it drops the points of this one quite much.

Cloudy golden colour with a small frothy white head. Floral hops, mild yeast, mild bitterness and malt in the aroma. Bitter grassy and floral hops, mild yeast and malt in the flavour. Warming. Hops in the aftertaste. Not bad.

lesifflebiere (1817) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - APR 16, 2013
Couleur dorée tirant sur le brun pâle, parfaitement limpide avec une mousse neigeuse assez tenace. Bulles nombreuses. Rappelle le vin blanc, avec en plus les céréales d’usage ; quelques notes florales aussi. Caramélisée et fruitée, elle présente des notes de céréales plutôt discrètes mais déterminantes, ce qui lui donne une profondeur. Assez veloutée et intense. Pas une grande bière à proprement parler, mais elle tient solidement la route. Un brin trop intense, et un point de pourcentage d’alcool en moins ne nuirait pas. Par contre elle est très agréable au goût.
