Brodie's rating

   AROMA 7/10   APPEARANCE 4/5   TASTE 7/10   PALATE 4/5   OVERALL 15/20
Brodie (540) - Boone, North Carolina, USA - SEP 29, 2006
Bottle from MJ Rare Beer Club. Fruity aroma - lots of orange with underlying plum, melon, and floral notes. Light peppery and earthy yeast character, gently honey sweetness. Orange-golden color, good clarity, huge pillowy white head. Lightly sweet up front, biscuity malt, mild fruit and floral flavors. Finishes decidedly dry with a subtle spiciness, with just a touch of bitterness lingering on the palate. Medium body with high carbonation, typical for a tripel, noticable alcohol warmth in the chest. I think this is a drinkable but interesting (and underrated) tripel.

erickok (5750) - Leuven, BELGIUM - MAY 25, 2016
Little funky start, then golden malts. Some cereal like sweetness ss on taste, a spicy bite, nothing out if the ordinary. Not very clean and certainly not dry, but it all fits the style. More interesting start than the beer turned out to be. Decent brew though. (33cl bottle from Dekoninck)

heman (866) - Tychy, POLAND - APR 7, 2016
Klarowne piwo ma złota barwę, nalewa się z intensywną, ładną białą pianą. Aromat średnio-intensywny, pierwszy plan to słodkie jasne owoce: brzoskwinie, morele, mirabelki. W tle subtelne nuty ziołowe. Piwo jest mocno wysycone i lekko słodkie w smaku. Ponownie dominują żłte owoce - każdy łyk przypomina łyk kompotu owocowego. Drugi plan to nuty pieprzowe, a finisz to niska, ziołowa w posmaku goryczka. Alkohol dobrze ukryty.

karpik (978) - Sosnowiec, POLAND - MAR 9, 2016
Fruity aroma with peach, some apricot and citrus. Pours golden with nice white head. Taste is a little bit too sweet for me, again fruity with spices. Low bitterness at the finish. Alcohol well covered. Overall just a solid tripel.

mgajdaczewa (1918) - Katowice, POLAND - MAR 5, 2016
W aromacie bardzo owocowo, rześko, brzoskwinie i cytrusy, leciuteńka kolendra, goździk, oglnie przyprawy, bardzo zachęcający. W smaku już wszystko się sypie, zaczyna dominować kolendra, co przy raczej wytrawnym ciele i niskiej soczystości nieco męczy. Goździk i przyprawy rwnież obecne. Alkohol dobrze ukryty. Oglnie jest ok, choć do ekstraklasy stylu brakuje wiele.

Manslow (1415) - Warsaw, POLAND - FEB 26, 2016
