Golden, amber coloured beer with a long lasting white head. Aroma of malt and soap which both return in the flavour. (Bottle 33cl)

JefVerstraete (1764) - Ghent, BELGIUM - DEC 23, 2014
Bottle @ home. Golden colour, white foam. Lively carbonation. Fruity with malty notes. Sweet, light bitter hoppy finish. Decent tripel, nothing exceptional.

Alengrin (2741) - BELGIUM - NOV 22, 2014
Tasted as Abbaye de Bonne-Espérance and yesterday as Abbaye de Gembloux from a 75 cl bottle. Moussy, regular, cream white, stable head over a deep amber beer with brownish hue, clear at first but hazy with deposit, relatively strong fizz. Estery aroma of peach, apricot, melon, banana, orange peel, pineapple in syrup, butterscotch, bourbon, grass. Sweetish fruity onset, red apple, exotic fruits and stone fruit, honeyish sweetness in the background, sharpish and minerally carbonation, full caramelly malts with nutty touch, yeasty and leafy hop bitter finish with some ’jenever’-like warming alcohol. Nice balance between sweet and bitter, and in that respect a very decent tripel.

Mainuh_man (253) - NETHERLANDS - OCT 22, 2014
0.33L bottle. Pours clear copper with a huge white head. Aromas are of apple, vinous, bubblegum, hay. Flavor is medium sweet with sort of non-descript sugar and apple coming through in the middle. Finishes with a lightly dry herby hop and yeasty finish. Medium body with a sticky mouthfeel and active carbonation. Overall, some nice aromas, and very drinkable beer. Flavor isn’t all that complex, but has a decent balance between malt and hop bitterness.

Had this on tap in Trieste, IT at the Boston Boulevard pub. To date, it’s my favorite.

Ragnampiza (558) - Rome / Lecce, ITALY - SEP 1, 2014
750 ml bottle. Dark golden yellow, quite hazy, with a big, creamy and persistent off white head. On the nose dried pluums, fruits under spirit, toffee and caramel, light bread and grass notes. Nicely bitter and fruity, slightly warming but relatively smooth. Burnt caramel, brown sugar and yeast in the aftertaste, as well as a rather umpleasent papery presence. Soft to average carbonation, medium body, slightly oily texture. So so.

milo91hd (148) - Lecce, ITALY - AUG 15, 2014
Colore ambrato molto opaca con un cappello di schiuma abbastanza persistente, si sente molto le note maltate e il luppolo nel finale.
