argo0 (13437) - Washington DC, USA - NOV 23, 2002
Golden, slightly hazy body, with minimal head. Aroma is sweet (bubblegum), fruity (apricot) and slightly spicy/yeasty. Flavor is sweet bubblegum, spice, but still fairly well balanced. The alcohol is nicly warming for the most part, but it asserts itself at the swallow, causing a moderate burn.

Bottle at the Half and Half, Croydon. It pours golden yellow with moderate carbonation and a decent white head. The nose is cheese, farmyard, hay, grass and yeast. The taste is hay, grass, honey, lemon sherbet, lime and kiwi with a dry finish. The mouth-feel is foamy like cream soda and the alcohol is pretty well hidden. Above average tripel.

Golden with a small white head. Yeasty aroma with an earthy touch. Dryish yeasty flavour with notable alcohol. Technically well balanced with well hidden alcohol, its just not my kind of beer

DSG (12346) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - OCT 6, 2008
Bottle. Clear golden beer with a huge frothy white head that diminishes slowly. Fruity aroma with some yeast, light hoppy notes, citrus hints and spice (some pepper in there). Flavor is slightly sweetish at first with light bready notes, later gets drier with some yeast and fruits, and finishes with rather bitter spicy hops and some alcohol. Medium-bodied. Not too bad, just nothing exciting and a bit too alcoholic.
