JPDIPSO (6053) - Wauwatosa, USA - MAR 23, 2017
Amber color with a huge fluffy off-white head. Very sweet aromas with hints of fruit, alcohol, spice, candi and light must. Sweet and fruity flavors. Fish food enters with the final pour. Candi and mild phenols. A little sweet, but the alcohol is well hidden. 3/12

Bouteille de 33cl (titre 11%). Couleur dore lgrement cuivre, mousse abondante de belle tenue. Une palette aromatique pas exceptionnellement riche, houblon, plantes aromatiques, alcool bien prsent. Un fort caractre, belle carbonnation. Trouve Vanuxeem - Ploegstaert.

guzgorog (819) - FRANCE - JUN 19, 2016
Version 11% et 100 IBU. Ouverture en geyser, attention. Robe jaune orange, abricot, trouble, fort dpt, mousse abondante qui dborde de la bouteille. Nez fait tout de suite penser la Orval : levure, pomme verte, raisin vert, mirabelle. La bouche fait galement penser la Orval, lgre acidit, fruits verts, prune, levure, la finale est plutt malte. Lamertume est prononce mais on ne sent pas tout fait les 100IBU (paut-tre lalcool puissant), on ne sent pas trop non plus la puissance de lalcool (quoique...). Le corps est rond, carbo norme. Excellente bire, a ressemble un peu une version booste de la Orval, en moins bien quilibre nanmoins. Peut tre interessant laisser vieillir (quoique la carbo mal matrise peut engendrer une perte norme louverture...).

PietS (204) - Bergen op Zoom, NETHERLANDS - FEB 19, 2016
This beer has quite some interesting aromas and tastes, especially for a tripel. Aromas are fresh and floral, the taste has a distinct sour tone, almost like Geuze. Unfortunately, the taste and aftertaste are dominated by heavy bitterness. So, its an interesting beer, but not great.

erickok (5761) - Leuven, BELGIUM - JAN 12, 2016
Great beer, uniquely Belgian yet very progressive. Clean enough (but very murky) with good fermentation aromas, very strong hop aroma and solid but certainly no hard bitterness. Very nice, think XX Bitter, perhaps somewhat less dry. I really really dig it, even though the abv borders of the crazy high. (33cl bottle from Dranken Pauwels)

Triple ipa de 11 % abv, et 100 ibu. Voici 2 chiffres impressionnants Couleur dor abricot, avec de la matire en suspension (norme carbonation louverture, qui a transform la bire en un vritable geyser Merci pour la quantit perdue ). Bulles en fontaine centrale vive. Mousse blanche en nappage flocons moyens. Armes dune amertume la Orval, malt clair. 1re bouche souple lamertume trs forte, piquante, du style Orval mais puissance 3. Arrire-bouche trs dsquilibre sur lamertume, des baies sres et du piment fort. 2me o lamertume est leve au point de devenir aigre Arrire-bouche qui ne laisse passer rien dautre. La longueur est beaucoup plus lie, et il perce maintenant des fruits blancs. Jambes fines, assez lisses. Levure fine, prcise, nette, belle ligne. Alcool fort, bien progressif, il tient fermement le tout. Finale o on trouve encore dautres nuances. CONCLUSION: une triple ipa qui gagnerait certainement ntre quune double ipa Mais il parat quil y a des versions 70 ibu. A ressayer donc sur cette base. A suivre ...

Sampled @ ZBF 2015. Clear dark golden, little white head. Nose is odd aspirin bitterness, some hops, tad fizzy. Taste is floral & aspirin bitterness, hay, malty, tad boozy, sugar, touch overripe fruits, Bit thin & fizzy. Odd with the aspiring bitterness but okay. (Thx! for sharing people!)
