blipp (8531) - La Mesa, California, USA - AUG 25, 2013
Bottle at CGBD. Pours orange with a white head. Peachy fruity, hints of brandy, light wood, light spicy yeast, and some light lingering fruity and hoppy notes. Big overall, but (relatively) well restrained on the barrel aspect. Good stuff.

icehawk (834) - Mount Pleasant, South Carolina, USA - JUN 5, 2013
Thick, very sweet, and extremely complex. Every sip seems to introduce a different flavor until the sweetness and alcohol dominate.

bartlebier (3633) - Belchium im Biersgau, GERMANY - APR 30, 2013
Sample of 75cl bottle courtesy of long-hauling [email protected] Tour de Geuze tasting 04/2013.
"malt beverage". Tastes like: Apple brandy. Dryish, barrel-aged tripel. Which happens to cover exactlywhat is on the label. Yeasty calvados tripel? Well-made for what it is. Not sure when the need will arise again...

hayduke (5032) - Eureka, California, USA - APR 26, 2013
Sampled at a ESBLS tasting. This was a gusher. Big carbonation. Gold in color. Nose of fruit and yeast. Possibly wild yeast. Flavor of apple and again the yeast. Sweet finish. Dont get the brandy barrel.

22/IV/13 - 75cl bottle @ Rampkrot (Deurne) - BB: n/a (2013-370) Thanks to Travlr for sharing the bottle!

Little cloudy orange beer, big creamy off-white head, little stable, adhesive. Aroma: bit sugary, orange peel, apple sauce, calvados. MF: ok carbon, medium body. Taste: very bitter start, apple skin, citrus, bit sugary, some alcohol. Aftertaste: little sweet, calvados, pretty bitter, almonds, citrus, hoppy ending. Im still not convinced that its a good idea to barrel age a tripel, but Kasteelbier could learn a thing or two from this one.

Strykzone (6946) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - APR 25, 2013
Sampled at an esbls tasting. This was a HUGE gusher. Hazed golden with a white head. I smell wild yeast so this might be infected. The taste is sweet and infected. Spme apple. Too bad the wild yeast got in there.

Thx to Travlr. 75 cl. bottle sampled. Hazy bright orange with an okay creamy white head. Nose is brett, orange, light yeast, children aspirin, quite lactic, Taste is lot of brett in the taste, very explosive with lots of carb. lightly lactic, tart; touch old, moldy apple, child aspirin, strong bitter, touch lactic lemon, Explosive carb. Nice but not entirely there.
