3.1
Rune (14055) - Tromsø, NORWAY - FEB 2, 2018
341ml bottle, 9 % abv, bought at Vinmonopolet Langnes. Grey-golden body, hazed. Pearl white head leaving scattered lacing on the glass. Ripe orange and apricot nose. Mixed taste of citrus and apricot with a touch of yeasty fruitiness towards the ending. Fine bodied. Soft in the mouth. Hidden alcohol. Different and quite pleasing. (Tromsø 20.01.2018).

dorain (750) - Berlin, GERMANY - JAN 27, 2018
Vom Fass im Muted Horn Berlin 2018-01 getrunken. Dieses goldtrübe Bier kommt gekühlt mit einer Hopfenbitterkeit daher, die dann wenn das Bier wärmer wird in den Hintergrund rückt. Später noch eine sehr schöne Hefenote dazu. Doch die ganze Zeit sind die tollen Aprikosenaromen präsent. Ein klasse Bier was richtig Spaß macht!

3.4
rumore (947) - Rimini, ITALY - JAN 8, 2018
From the tap at FOB, Rimini, Italy. Pours hazy gold with a fluffy white head, very fine. Aroma is of dry apricot, some banana. Body is fairly dense with limited carbonation. Taste is moderate in sweetness, with good bitterness and some sourness that remains long in the finish.

2.5
Inbreak (6827) - Loddefjord, NORWAY - JAN 3, 2018
03.01.2017, 0,34l bottle @ home:
Nice creamy longlasting head, hazy. Aroma is slightly dry floral, weeds, yeast, flowers, fruit stones, old wash cloth, light malts, grass, wet hay, berry skin, sour fruits, hints of popcorn. Taste is slightly dry sour-ish floral, fruit stones, sour grass, flowers, yeast, minerals, bark, hay, berry skin, grass, sorrel, old wash cloth, sour fruits, soda powder, paper. Medium bitterness, slightly harsh sour-ish floral mouthfeel. Not really my cup of coffee.

Sigmund (8103) - Tau, NORWAY - DEC 26, 2017
341 ml bottle, from Vinmonopolet, Nettbutikken. ABV is 9%. Hazy yellow colour, moderate white head. Strong aroma of apricots, candy and Belgian ale yeast. Fruity flavour, again notes of apricots and Belgian ale yeast, hints of citrus peel, some hops in the finish. Not a beer I'll bother to buy again.

2.2
fiulijn (21522) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 12, 2017
Draught at St. Augustine's, Vancouver
Cloudy blond color. Mild aroma (soap and bubblegum). The fruit flavor clashes with the bubblegum Tripel, creating and unpleasant feeling, and some booze in the finish.
Very bad.

3.9
aleksander9 (1927) - Oslo, NORWAY - NOV 10, 2017
Hazy orange with white head. Apricot, Belgian esters and marzipan. Fruity, light acidic and some alcohol. Super nice.

3.4
BrunTremens (64) - Saint-Alban, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 25, 2017
Je ne savais pas trop a quoi m'attendre avec celle ci, et imaginais que l'abricot serait plutot sucré comme la seule autre bière aux abricots que j'ai gouté de St-Ambroise, de même, son côté florale décrit me promettais un mordant houblonné et assez sèche....et OUI! J'avais tout FAUX!! Parfois les attentes gâchent l'experience et peut être fut-ce le cas ici pour moi car au final, j'ai pas apprécié plus qu'il faut l'expérience. ...c'est comme si quelqu'un avait subtilement verser du vin d'orge dans ma IPA pendant que j'avais le dos tournés! Bon, alors au nez c'était oui très herbacéés, fruité et ''abricosé'', mais les saveurs frappent vite et vivement! Du fruit mais plutot agrume de type Pamplemousse, pêche et au loin abricot pas assez mures je dirais...il y a du foin, du grain, du houblon (K.O), du raisin, du malt, du blé, des fleurs très tropicales....bref, ici il ne s'agit pas d'une triple blonde, mais plutot triple blanche très acidulé et aux houblon ultra fruités. J'avoue ne pas connaître ce style ''d'abbaye belge'' mais une chose est sure, je n'irais pas y faire un séjour de ressourcement et n'ai jamais rien gouté de tel se targuant d'inspiration Abbaye.
