Bottle. Body-medium ring of bubbles, medium gold. Nose-cork, Chardonnay, urea. Tatse-spikey, medium sweetness, oxidation, wood, strawberry. Not bad. I could drink this every day and be happy. Sweet in a berry kinda way. BMan1113VR (7931) - Los Angeles, California, USA - FEB 20, 2009
Bottle thanks to bu11zeye. I am guessing this has some age on it. Nice Sharpie labeling. Pours with a huge white head over a hazed yellow body. Aroma of cobwebs, old books, bread, leather, dirt, candi sugar and rotting wood. Taste is sweet with cobwebs, bread, biscuit and honey. Lots of oxidation notes. Light bubbles and dry.

Bottle thanks to bu11zeye. Pors a cloudy gold with white head. Aroma of some funk, some fruit. Flavor has a light sweetness, some funk, some malt, and a little fruit. Mouthfeel is medium body with high carbonation. Overall, not bad.... JK54B (1602) - Helsinki, FINLAND - MAY 28, 2008
Uitzet Tripel (1730). Light yellow colour. Some cloudiness. Some lemon and coriander in the nose. Taste was not so good as I excpected. A dull taste.

Hazy gold, lively light head. Cidery, very sour and fruity, aroma. Definitely some brett in there. A bit fizzy in the mouth. Quite a light taste - light malts. As it warmed, there were more and more malty tastes, and perhaps some apple. Very refreshing, and hides the 6.8% very well. Deep hoppy finish.
2008-03-05. Crisp clear yellow body with a nice foamy white head. (3+) Very mild aroma, light alcohol and dry tripleish notes. Flavour is relatively light overall, light brief fruit, effervescent palate seems to almost whisk some of the more subtle notes quickly across the tongue, not unlike champagne (the experience, not the flavour), dry pears or similar light white fruit character. (6+) Average palate is quite effervescent and bubbly which I enjoyed but made for quite a reaction when all that gas chose to make its exodus after! (3+) Pleasant, but just okay.mtoast (336) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 10, 2008
Bottle at Moeder Lambic, Brussels
75cL bottle courtesy of yinzer at Pittsburgh gathering on 1/27/08. Bottle officially wins as the most grey market bottle I’ve ever seen, no govt. warning, very generic label with triple circled in sharpie and 2 other styles crossed out. So much for multi million dollar ad campaigns with 2 years of market research to find the most eye pleasing label, fuck it dude, just screen print the bottle and we’ll fix it in post. Deep cloudy yellow, really fizzy yellow foam, no retention or lacing. Big oxidized aroma, lots of overripe fruit. Flavor is full of oxidation also, a bit boozy also. Would be interested in trying a fresh bottle, seems like there was something good buried beneath the old. cheap (5796) - Beaver Valley, Beaver County, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 31, 2008
Had the pleasure of sampling this at the 1/27/2008 Pittsburgh ratebeer.com gathering and festival upstairs, Sharp Edge Creekhouse. It will be a long time, if ever I am invited again and I see a spread of bottles like I did there - ever again. I am not good enough for the beers that were that we sampled! For example, how about this beer; thanks yinzer, mark I owe you more than a dozen! Sweet aroma and a friendly attitude on the olfactory, mild and winelike. Cloudy yellow with pretty big particles in there. Serious yeast chunks. Barely any carbonation. Flavors of candy and alky. Just a little too much for my sissy taste buds. Quite an experience! Mark, you over did it! Nate (4279) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 30, 2008
Sampled at the RBPG; bottle courtesy of yinzer. Bottle must have been brought in under the radar - wasn’t even a government warning label or even the international dialing code on the label. Aroma was phenolic, with light rubber undertones, but more predominant was raisin, oak, honey, pepper, and yeastiness! Cloudy butterscotch in color, with a thin off-white lacing head. Medium bodied with medium carbonation - a nice smooth balance. Yeasty, honey, raisins and fig, then alcoholic warming. Sweet with chalky yeast finish. Great tripel in this with a bit of sour honey tang at the end. Really enjoyed this one and it was a highlight of the gathering among others.
