Maakun (5179) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - MAY 13, 2017
Bottle at home. Clear golden with big white head. Lots of pils malts, grapefruit, light grass, alcohol, light bright citrus juice, soft bitter chicory notes. Over medium sweet and about medium bitter. Over medium bodied with some alcohol. Quite nice but with less alcohol it would probably be better.

Svesse (8464) - Hsselby, SWEDEN - MAY 12, 2017
(Bottle, 2010 vintage) Golden colour, slightly hazy, with frothy white head. Malty, fruity nose with notes of peaches, pineapple, citrus, grapefruit, coriander, doughy malt, grass, floral hops and a spicy yeast aroma. Malty, hoppy taste with bread, pineapple, peaches, unripe mango, black-currant, marzipan, spicy yeast, coriander, hay and a generous citric, grassy bitterness in a finish with a touch of warming alcohol. Almost full body, with a touch of sweetness. Tasty, with a generous hop character and well balanced for its strength. Very nice.

MrW (640) - Mechelen, BELGIUM - FEB 22, 2017
Bottle 33cl in the tasters box. Aroma of spices, flowers, minimal grapefruit and pepper. Poured maybe a little darker than the normal Duvel, but still perfect looking with the perfect sparkling. Taste is flowers, pepper, less fruity than the other Tripel hops, sweet and a slow bitterness coming in. Spicy finish and fizzy mouthfeel.

imdownthepub (14335) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - FEB 22, 2017
Bottled, 330ml, aged 7.5yrs from Bellingers Garage, Grove, Oxon (now sadly closed). In theory obviously ageing this wouldnt improve it but in actual fact it had become a rich, dryish, full on Belgian Ale. Excellent depth of flavours which had amalgamated into a resinous, fruitiness. Smooth and silky. Really pleased with this one.

vsyrbu (68) - MOLDOVA - FEB 5, 2017
very durable and beautiful foam. In aroma and in the taste a lot of the bitterness of the hops, little fruits such as peach or something else and a little spice. Alcohol is almost non-filled.

FatPhil (15807) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - DEC 17, 2016
330ml bottle (Koht Birthday Auction 2016, Tallinn)
Dullish aroma, some hopping. Pale gold, small head. Harshish bitter hoppy taste, malts drowned by the hops. Lacking balance, too much emphasis on the hops, and the hops are a bit of a mess.

suurjuust (3504) - ESTONIA - DEC 17, 2016
330ml bottle shared by Phil, thanks! Clear yellow pour, medium white head. Nose is hops, fruity notes, lemons, peach. Flavor is lemons, some malt sweetness, floral perfume. Finish is slightly sweet and lemony, some alcohol warmth.

Marduk (7480) - Reval, ESTONIA - DEC 17, 2016
330ml bottle (thanks FatPhil). Clear golden color. Medium size, white head, stays. Perfume, bit papery, grainy, alcohol and acetone. Weak aroma. Alcohol, bit yeasty, grainy, sweet, oranges in taste. Oranges and perfume in aftertaste. Soft carbonation. Bit thin, but drinkable.
