DijkBier (297) - AMSTERDAM, NETHERLANDS - DEC 28, 2016
Bottle in Gent. Clear golden pour with foamy white head, good retention. Soft aroma of malts, fruits and some unclear fresh spices. Taste is medium sweet, yellow fruits, both apple, tropical, as banana; light bitterness, somewhat spicy. Mouthfeel somewhat creamy, moderate carbo. Dont experience the 9 ABV. Might to me be stronger of taste, being a tripel or being called inferno.

Zlotta (2763) - Hagen, GERMANY - SEP 4, 2016
Sampled from tap at the brewpub. Clear, golden yellow with a slightly creamy, slowly diminishing, white head. Sweetish, herbal-fruity aroma of lemongrass, pineapple and some clove. Sweetish, slightly bitter, herbal-fruity taste of lemongrass, pineapple, some ginger and a bit of clove, followed by a medium long, moderately bitter, quite grassy-herbal and a bit yeasty finish. Medium to full body, slightly creamy mouthfeel, soft to average carbonation. Nice, best of the five beers for me!

mice (900) - FINLAND - AUG 10, 2016
Paksu valkoinen vaahto, joka j pitkksi aikaa oluen pinnalle. Vriltn oranssi/vaaleanrusehtava. Tuoksu varsin mieto, hedelm ja makeutta, maussa makeahkoa hedelmisyytt. Ei juuri jlkipuraisua, suutuntuma ei kovin vahva, hieman metallisuutta havaittavissa. Alkoholi ei maistu liikaa kovista volteista huolimatta. Hiilihappoinen, paljon pieni kuplia. Ei mikn erikoinen tapaus, paljon parempiakin Belgej on maa tynn.
