UPDATED: FEB 11, 2018 3/XII/17 - on tap @ Billies Craft Beer Festival - BB: n/a (2017-2091) Thanks to the Belgian, Dutch and German ratebeerians for sharing today's beers!Braudog (6944) - Yorktown, Virginia, USA - FEB 6, 2018
Clear pale blond beer, small to no head. Aroma: very malty, all grains, cow fodder, meh. MF: soft carbon, medium to full body. Taste: more grains and cow fodder, malty, bit metallic. Tastes like a German has been trying to make a low abv "Belgian Tripel" using reinheitsgebot and his own house yeast strain...
Bottle. Pours with an initial fizzle, medium gold. There's a pretty nice, classical aroma here. But then it all kinda falls off ... the flavors are pretty muted, with just a hint of that funky farmhouse thing you want. It's farily thin for style, as well. Don't want to be too negative here, because it's clean and enjoyable, just not noteworthy. (#6935, 2/2018) Heidbummer (1043) - SCOTLAND - JAN 31, 2018
Keg, Brewdog Lothian Road. This pours a beautiful honeyed gold, thin lacy head. More honey on the aroma, and a classic Belgian yeastiness. Sweet taste, which is just a little too sweet for me, but the balance is excellent otherwise between dry hops, sweet malts, Belgian yeast.

Keg at brewdog Edinburgh. Pours golden, nose is sugary, caramel, citrus, taste is sweet, sugary, toffee, grassy. Scopey (16537) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 13, 2018
Keg at BD Aberdeen. It pours clear golden with a small white head. The aroma is sweet, tangy, apple, pear, melon, candy, icing sugar and toasty grain. The taste is soft, sweet, apple, melon, chalky, bit grainy, oily, slick, sugary, toasty grain and warning booze through the finish. Medium body, low carbonation and oily mouth-feel. Lacks depth and is rather sweet. Very meh. mariuspoenari (3202) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - DEC 31, 2017
Sampled at Billie's Craft Beer Fest 2017 - day 2. Clear amber pour. Notes of caramel, sugar, malts, light hops, nail polish. superspak (6371) - Waterford, Michigan, USA - DEC 14, 2017
12 ounce bottle into chalice, no bottle dating. Pours lightly hazy pale golden yellow color with a 1 finger dense white head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Nice spotty lacing clings on the glass, with a fair amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of big lemon, orange, peach, pear, melon, red apple, peppercorn, light banana/bubblegum/clove, candi sugar, cracker, white bread, herbal, floral, grass, and yeast earthiness. Damn nice aromas with great balance and complexity of fruity/spicy yeast, pale malt, and light-moderate earthy hop notes; with great strength. Taste of big lemon, orange, peach, pear, melon, red apple, peppercorn, light banana/bubblegum/clove, candi sugar, cracker, white bread, herbal, floral, grass, and yeast earthiness. Light-moderate herbal/grassy bitterness and peppery yeast spiciness on the finish. Lingering notes of lemon, orange, peach, pear, melon, red apple, peppercorn, light banana/bubblegum/clove, candi sugar, cracker, white bread, herbal, floral, grass, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Great complexity, robustness, and balance of fruity/spicy yeast, pale malt, and light-moderate earthy hop flavors; with an awesome malt/bitter/spiciness balance, and zero cloying/astringent flavors after the finish. Fairly crisp/clean finishing. Light-moderate increasing dryness from bitter/spiciness. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth and moderately grainy/sticky balanced mouthfeel that is great. Zero warming alcohol for 9.2%. Overall this is an excellent tripel! All around great complexity, robustness, and balance of fruity/spicy yeast, pale malt, and light-moderate earthy hop flavors; very smooth, crisp, clean, and refreshing to drink for the ABV. Great well rounded Belgian yeast complexity and clean Pils malt backbone, with balancing noble hops. Well attenuated, not sweet/heavy at all for the ABV. A very enjoyable offering, and spot on style example. obguthr (6925) - Staunton, Virginia, USA - DEC 4, 2017
