Zlotta (4476) - Hagen, GERMANY - MAR 27, 2018
0.33 l bottle from 'Biermuda', 2017 vintage, best before February 2022, so about a year old. Clear, amber with a massive, foamy, stable, off-white head. Sweetish, slightly sourish, fairly funky and moderately fruity aroma of sweat, green apples, pear, candied orange and some clove. Just slightly sweet, fairly dry, moderately bitter, slightly sour, rather funky and moderately fruity taste of sweat, green apples, lemon peel, clove, some grass and a touch of Belgian candy, followed by a medium long, very dry, slightly tart, fairly funky, quite bitter and also a bit alcoholic finish. Medium body, slightly astringent and fairly effervescent mouthfeel, lively carbonation. Very interesting beer, way funkier than expected, not that much left of a Tripel. Therefore not an easy drinker but something which should be tried at least once. HogTownHarry (7466) - Toronto (Harbourfront), CANADA - MAR 23, 2018
February 25, 2017 - at Beer Bistro - 330ml bottle. Bubbly gold, average white head. Aroma and taste is a simple sweet spicy slightly boozy Belgian golden ale with just a hint of brett funk - not bad. Slick, decent carbonation, slightly boozy finish. I remember drinking regular Straffe Hendrik in Brugges in 2000 - sure wish I could get back to Belgium now that I know beer. EvNa (758) - Ede, NETHERLANDS - MAR 13, 2018
Bottle. 2017. Color: Slightly hazy golden, thick frothy white head. Taste: Smooth and bit creamy below medium sweet tripel with clear notes of the brett yeast. Lightly sour, lightly bitter. Hints of candy sugar and leather. Above medium body, above average carbonation. Long lasting pepper bretty finish. Pretty dry mouthfeel. Quite nice.

Ascelja (2091) - Neratovice, CZECH REPUBLIC - FEB 7, 2018
Too much caramel, too significant alcohol.
#1931vcsa (83) - - JAN 27, 2018
Bottle, gusher. Hazy, orange, with yeasty partices, high white head. Aroma of caramel, citruses, wild tones, caramel, disturbing alcohol. Taste is sharp, sweet, tart. Alcohol, bretty tones, apples, caramel, berries, citruses. Fuller body, high carbonation.
Not my style.
Appearance: Pours hazy copper with a white head, with some lacing.
Aroma: Lot of brettanomyces notes like barn yard, horse stable, leather and even some sweat, and some fresh grapefruits and citrus as well.
Taste: Slight sour bitter flavor followed by distinct sweet, comprises hops, spice and sublte brett, with sweet malt, caramel, grapefruit and dark fruits notes, nice balanced. Lingering yeasty, light tart sourish and very fruity finish with some sweetness.
Mouthfeel: Medium bodied, watery, a bit over carbonated.
Sweeter than the original tripel, which make it even more balanced. Intense fruits underlay the significant brettanomyces, can't give up this one.
16/20 NORSAND (134) - Lillestrøm, NORWAY - JAN 26, 2018
Medium amber colour, medium head.
Nose: Malt, fruity elements, yeast. After a bit of air, a lot of bretty notes like farm yard, horse stable, leather and even some sweat. But it smells better than it sounds I find it interesting and quite nice but I imagine this is a “love it or hate it” kind of nose.
Taste: The arrival is richly carbonated, almost fizzy, medium malty, with caramel and butter. On the mid palate slight bitterness, flowery and herbal. Medium to medium rich body. The exit and aftertaste is this beer’s weakest side, with a little out of balance bitterness and some white pepper. vinivini (3346) - Gomel, BELARUS - JAN 16, 2018
Bottle. Moderate gushing. Hazy orange. White head. Weak lacing. Aroma: wild yeast, rich fruit, banana. Medium body. Dry taste. Yeasty, spicy. Some hop. High class. grtyui (17) - - JAN 13, 2018
Speciale triple versie (2016) met ‘wilde’ gisten. Veel koolzuur bij opening van een troebel oranjegeel goud bier. Volle zachte smaak met fruitige (sinaas)appel, druif banaan) ingrediënten. Zurige, bloemige smaak met zoetige afdronk. Een goed geslaagde variant van deze triple met genoeg body en mildheid.
