2.68/5 rDev -27.2%
Served on draught into a Bier van het moment tulip at Cafe Samson, in Nijmegen, Holland. Paired with some Dutch dorito-esque crisps. Reviewed live.
A: 2.5 finger head of delicate soft slight cream and fair thickness. Average retention, about two minutes or so I'd say. Colour is a semitransparent full yellow. Appealing.
Sm: Cream, orange peel, and other light citrusy esters. Full, fresh, and appealing, yet mild in strength.
T: Cream, heavy orange peel, artifical faux-grapefruit, and light off-cream undertones (in addition to the cream hop on top). Feels artificial. She's not really complex either, and the balance is off. Built without inspiration or care, but not badly per se.
Mf: Smooth and wet - too wet. Bland and lackluster.
Dr: I paid a fairly high price in the Netherlands as it is an import (around 3.00 euro for a 25cl tulip worth). She drinks easy but the flavour just isn't there. Its best feature may be that it hides its 8% quite well. More orange peel would be a welcome addition.

Sunday 16 Dec 2012: Antwerp Gollem. 33cl glass from the tap.
Golden yellow body, almost clear, on top a white, full head. Mild citrus feel to the aroma, some yeast and semi-sweet maltiness added to the smells.
The taste was biscuit malty with a hint of citrus fruit filling. Not as exciting as I hoped for: not bland, but not far off. Hid the alcohol well enough, so there must have been something flavoursome in there!
Not a great start to my evenings drinking, but it did make the next beer taste great (a John Martin Diabolici).

A = hazy gold color with decent head to start, settling to thin head
S = spicy with orange peel. 1st impression-this will be a lighter trippel
T = impression was right as this one doesn't pack much of a punch on the back end like other good trippels. almost like it tries to get there, falling short. spicy, grapefruit tastes.
M = light body, little carbonation
D = as with many belgians, certainly a drinkable beer, just not that many

Semicloudy, big column of carbonation up the center, but not much of a head. Light orangy gold. Thick sandorn smell. Not the strongest flavor, but primarily sour, with a semi bland sandorn underneath. Somewhat resembles a witbier. No sweetness. Sour tang, and somewhat drying. Decent, but relatively bland and uninteresting.

This beer pours a very clear, orange color with a small head and easy-going bubbles.
Smell is coriander, orange peel which make the beer very aromatic and spicy. Some malty honey, which comes from the ambermalt.
Taste is sweet and definatelly coriander and what tastes like cardemom, but is not mentioned on the label. This must be the combination with the orangepeel, that make the beer so aromatic and citric. I feel that this is a bit over the top. Some honey notes from the amber malt. The bitterness is a little sharp in the back of my throat. The beer is somewhat sticky and body is medium, which should be a little bit less in a triple.
This beer is overpowered by the spices used and becomes less drinkable IMO.

33cl into a tulip. Pours a nearly crystal clear classic orange gold, minor pure white head, minor lacing.
Aroma is sweet yeasty spicy and nice. Touch of citrus and tiny flowers.
Citrus carries through to the flavor which is somewhat bland. Chalky yeast. A rind bitter dominated the aftertaste. Not particularly complex. Medium bodied lively mouthfeel.

Very, very hazy appearance. Dark orange in color. A lot of floating particles. A veil of head, thin.
The smell is malty, very fruity, with notes of orange peel, and spices. Pepper, coriander. Cinnamon? Grapefruit?
The taste is malty too, lightly, and fruity overall (definitely grapefruit). Spice again, lightly. Honey.
Apricot fruity, and orange again. Floreal in the background.
Some alcohol perceptible, but it fits.
Malty aftertaste, and fruity, with the same notes, and a good citrusy.

Poured from a 33cl bottle into a glass
Pours a cloudy almost weizen type color. Not clear like most triples.
The smells is spicy with hints of orange peal and flowers.
Tastes is kind of yeasty at first and then turns to a leathery floral taste which then finishes with a not to overpowering bitter taste. As the beer goes down you begin to feel the alcohol but not so much that it overpowers the taste and takes away from the beer, it's actually a very nice sensation.
I don't normally like triples since the alcohol usually overpowers any taste, but this beer is how it should be, something where the alcohol adds to the taste instead of distracting from it.
This is a fantasic brew that I will for sure buy again.

Served in a Unibroue tulip
A: Golden going amber with a big white head that leaves behind a foamy lace, there's some visible sediments.
S: Sweet, some orange (citrus), alcohol, flowery.
T: Sweet, citrusy, alcohol it's very present on taste, no lingering flavor.
Overall: various flavor going on but the alcohol it's overpowering, kind of flat, but given the opportunity I would have another.

Beer is golden in color. Nice white head on top of it. A lots of bubbles coming out of this one. Fruity in the aroma. Some spices too and floral. In the mouth, the beer is very fruity with a dry finish. The bitterness is light. Very dry in the finish.
Medium body. The head is very sticky. A good one.

Poured from the bottle into a tulip glass. Love the pinching crab on the label, already a fan.
A good white head, with some retention, sits on a dull orange and brown amber body, with good rising white pinhead carbonation. Nor much lacing at all. Pretty solid looking brew.
Wonderful nose on this beer. A real impressive dry ripping barley with a big dense malt and hidden sweetness. Nutty with a hint of orange fruit it seems. Great smelling beer!
Light bodied with some density but a very neutral palate. Light malts roll around briefly on first sip, then the swallow brings a lot of wetness with some drying action. Fruit character doesn't come through, but luckily not much for booze either. Juicy texture comes through a bit as it warms up, and some orange character does appear.
Overall in short I was expecting more from the nose, and as good as the beer is, it's a little bit of a letdown. Still things could be worse.
