JorisPPattyn (10136) - BELGIUM - JUN 25, 2014
Very metallic-golden beer, medium carbonated, clear; all the yeast collected on the bottom. Initially big, but soon reduced white head. Bit spicy nose, with the unmistakable scorched sugar/alcohol/toasted malt Huyghe imprint; yeasty esters. Sharp, dry flavour with toasted-bitterish and sweet components; yeast-intoned. Hints at spices & herbs, impossible to say which, probably yeastesters, really. Sharp, dry, alcoholic. Heard that one somewhere before. Really? Oh, can’t be Trappist everybody that might want to.

fkoolen (1426) - Maastricht, NETHERLANDS - JUN 22, 2014
Hazy yellow, white foamy head. Thin aroma and taste, a bit sweet (ripe fruit) and grainy, alcohol is quite present. Not too pleasant mouthfeel with (too) high carbonation, watery body. Plane...

seynie (425) - Tienen, BELGIUM - JUN 20, 2014
Great slightly hazy gold with strong foam top. Typical Belgian strong ale with yeast, malt, some citrus, some sweetness towards the end. Something not quite right with the finish though, bit of metal in there and maybe to much sticky sweetness.

crlnts (401) - SWITZERLAND - JUN 20, 2014
White head, diminishing. Yellow, clear, some specks. Smells belgian, yeast and alcohol. Average carbonation. Alcohol aftertaste, light bitter aftertaste. Nothing special. Not the best of this style.

bdunhill (255) - Brussels, BELGIUM - JUN 18, 2014
For an Abbeye strong ale there is good reason it is on of the only beers in the fridge section at the delaize, not a good aroma or flavor.

Opzich smaakt het bier niet verkeerd. Heb het op van de tap op een warme dag en nu wil ik hem graag proberen van de fles.

mcberko (20253) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 14, 2014
330mL bottle at Delices et Caprices, pours a clear pale blonde with a medium white head. Aroma brings out dry crackery malts and lots of grains. Flavour brings out lots of yeast, sweet cereal malts, light dry hops, and champagne yeast. Very lively carbonation that brings out the complexity. Excellent tripel.

4.2
Alusmamuts (2218) - LATVIA - JUN 11, 2014
Light amber with rich white cap. Despite its strength very mild taste. A bit sweet background with balanced sourness and bitterness.

Martinus (4751) - Baarle-Nassau, NETHERLANDS - JUN 9, 2014
Pale golden colour, white head. Aroma of banana, malts, yeast, hint of spices. Malty flavour. Quite dry. Light body. Malty finish, banana. Decent, but eh.. Meh.
(from 33cL bottle shared @ home)

graziano85 (481) - Budapest, HUNGARY - JUN 8, 2014
Deep yellow colour, with a huge white head disappearing very slowly. Smell is yeast, malt and some grassy hops, with some alcohol hints. Taste is less intense, with bitter finish. Ok but average.
