Grovlam (4208) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAY 28, 2007
Bottle. Large fizzy white head that mostly lasted. Good lacing. Clear sparkling with heavy particle in flow and a slightly dark golden colour. I thought that ABT should be more dark in colour...well I guess not. Aroma of yeast, fruit, spice, coriander, caramel, apricot and somewhat soap notes as well. Full bodied with a lively carbonation and a alcoholic texture. The 10 % shows over the palate. Moderated sweet malty notes with some alcoholic like bitterness. Sweet and light spicy finish. Not the best ABT that I have had. Belgium 25-05-2007

obguthr (6022) - Staunton, Virginia, USA - MAY 25, 2007
UPDATED: MAY 26, 2007 To begin with, Ive not had a great deal of experience with belgian styles and Im not a fan so far. It smelled like canned carrots. Amber color, no head and floating sediments. The taste was medicny like bandage antiseptic, although some nice hop notes were detected toward the end. It had a delayed cabbage finish that grew in intensity. Chimay blows this away. It was rather gross overall.

Glouglouburp (6103) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 25, 2007
Cloudy orange-golden body with a long-lasting small off-white head. Overly sweet beer. Candy sugar all over the place. The sweetness taste does not come with caramel flavour or something. No, just pure candy sugar. Sugary to the point of being crunchy. Alcohol is very present and leaves a little alcohol burn. If I concentrate very hard I can notice faint peaches flavour and maybe a hint of caramel. Maybe my bottle wasnt fresh enough (hard to tell with an expiration date many years in the future) but besides candy sugar and alcohol every flavour attempt (hops or others) was crushed like the chocks of a minibus during a Weight-Watchers club week-end getaway.

zebracakes (1339) - Washington DC, USA - MAY 17, 2007
On tap at the Sharp Edge. Hazy gold, white head. Aroma is fruity (apples, pears), wheaty, slightly funky. Flavor is musty, fruity, wheaty; well blended for 10% alcohol.

Braudog (6517) - Yorktown, Virginia, USA - MAY 7, 2007
Bottled. Poured into my tulip and admired the opaque light orange color with a nice thin but staying film of light airy foam. Just the faintest aroma of orange mist. Wow, such a nice tight bitter orange flavor here, stingingly acidic, but still well rounded and fruity. This is what Belgian beer is all about. To think I used to not like stuff like this. Wonderful.

altonbrownd (5898) - Chevy Chase, Maryland, USA - APR 23, 2007
Bottle at Gollem. Orangy. Smells sweet. Roasty, wheaty. Numbing, quite strong alcohol. Silky finish.

Arayaga2 (2170) - portland, Oregon, USA - MAR 29, 2007
Hazy orange with a tight white head. Aroma is somewhat sour with a bit of apple, but otherwise rather faint. Taste is mostly dry and woody or metallic. $3.75

MiP (15394) - Snderborg, DENMARK - MAR 23, 2007
Bottle, 10% as Het Kapittel Tripel. Fruity clove aroma with some hops to it. Hazy dark golden colour. Nice, big, stable white head. The flavour is a bit sweet with good flavour hops and some bitterness. Also a bit of clove and some pepper. Quite well-balanced.

jalichio999 (502) - BRAZIL - MAR 13, 2007
UPDATED: AUG 18, 2007 Bottle, 330 ml. Muddy amber coloration. Excellent aroma. Complex. Notes of caramel, honey, metallic, toasted malt and very discrete orange. Good cream. High carbonation. Perceivable bitter taste, bothering me. On the other hand, it has not a perceivable alcohol. Weak points: accented carbonation and bitter taste.

reakt (950) - Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 4, 2007
UPDATED: SEP 2, 2007 Bottle from Beer Circus, Croyden. Bright amber with no head, but beautiful nonetheless. Sweet yeasty aroma. Taste of honey and orange with a salty finish and bitter edge. Full, syrupy body. I really liked it.
