fiulijn (19824) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 27, 2012
Bottle from Beer Planet, Brussels
Hazy amber color, with generous, compact head. The aroma presents some typical Belgian yeast spiciness, mild, and some delicate fruitiness. Correct body strength; the malt flavor is not impressive, but at least its a bit sweet and spicy; there is a trace of vegetables, and the bitterness is on an average level (or high for a Belgian beer). Correct brew.

Draft at ACBF 2011. Cloudy gold pour with a foamy head. Mild grain and yeast on the nose. Flavor is quite sweet, plenty of caramel and demerera sugar. Medium in body with fine to average carbonation. Sugary finish, lots of malts. Very decent.

Bottle at home, from Dranken Geers, 24/03/13. Gusher Alert ... Lost 20/25 % of this one ! Hazed orange amber with a big light beige frothy head - good lacing ensues. Nose is orange peel, citrus, yeast, spice - corriander, candied sugars, rye bread. Taste lacks a little depth for an 8% beer, drinkable none the less with pale malt, yeast, citrus, spice, lemon, corriander, rye, caramel, sugars. Full end of medium bodied, fine carbonation - pitched perfectly, smooth on the palate. A decent enough triple but no world beater.

harrisoni (17571) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - MAY 8, 2011
33cl bottle enjoyed at home after Man Utd beat Chelsea to all but win their record 19th championship. Funny I thought I had this at ACBF but obviously not. Clear orange amber colour with lasting white head. Well what am I expecting? Another highly drinkable beer I am guessing. Sweet sherbert and apricot aroma. Hop and apricot aroma. Enticing aroma. In terms of carbonation and mouthfeel it is all bar perfect. Yes more apricot flavour in the mouth. Some hop sting on the finish. A decent fruity Belgian strong with great mouthfeel. Almost in tripel country. Apricot fruit is pretty good. Opens up as you drink it. The mix of apricot jam and touches of honeyed syrup are extremely enticing. Touch of tangerine on the finish. As it went down the more I enjoyed it. The fruit really is immaculate. Overall I will remember this for the impressive apricot jammy flavour and huge drinkability in the mouth.

On tap at Copenhagen Beer Celebration 2012. (Notes says Motueka hops) Its an unclear, golden-orange beer with a beige finger-thick size. The aroma is a bit sugary, with peach notes, fruit syrup and some peppery, spiced notes. Its dry and well carbonated, with sweetness and a nice peppery touch. Peaches and bitterness too, finishing sweet, fruity and bitter. A bit on the sweet side I think, but tasteful anyway. 120511
