COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Refermented in bottle and dry hopped.

Une recette secrète jalousement gardée depuis des siècles, une épice mystérieuse... Bière blonde 100% naturelle à l’arôme fruité. C’est le houblonnage à cru lors de la 2e fermentation qui lui confère son arôme si délicat.

Tim Webb (229) - Cambridge, Cambridgeshire, - SEP 6, 2012
On draught at the Hotel Foch in Cassel, France. Innocent, sweet, more of a straight blond with a lightly spicy edge that a triple as such. I could have drunk this all night, such was the absence of 8% warning signs.

The beer seems ok, but something is wrong with it. Wit but not actually wit. Too bitter and the taste is too flat. But bottle is fancy :)

stravale (2075) - Near Carrick-on-Shannon, IRELAND - AUG 9, 2014
Bottle from somewhere in Dublin [300714]
Golden, big frothy white head, light haze, streaming carb, head dissipates to thin layer
Nose of soft yeast esters, light pale fruits, slight peach, no alcohol
Taste of pale malts, dab of alcohol, little spicy, very soft fruits, dab of yeast ester, very soft citrus, a little dull though
Palate - Medium to high carb, medium body, fairly sweet. Finish as main flavour, alcohol not that noticeable, light spicy, cleans off palate
Overall - Quite easy drinking, but a bit dull overall

Renobob (616) - Besançon, FRANCE - AUG 9, 2014
Bue en canette de 33cl. Blonde typée belgian classique mais trop sucrée. Dommage.

freretoc (628) - Besançon, FRANCE - AUG 8, 2014
Bue en bouteille de 33cl, couleur blonde, peu de mousse et d’effervescence, une bière avec une attaque sur le pain frais, et ensuite une attaque caramélisée, peu d’intérêt car trop sucrée !

mmahut (945) - CZECH REPUBLIC - JUL 29, 2014
Hazy pale body with medium white head. Aroma has light yeasty spiciness, high malty profile on the nose already. Taste has medium spicy, really high on yeast, bitterness, long lasting across whole profile, medium to low grainy sweetness. Good balance. Great with indian diches :) Body is full, high carbonation.

PriorL (1760) - Gent, BELGIUM - JUL 29, 2014
75cl bottle at home, shared with Mathieu87. APPEARANCE: clear blond beer, small stable white head. NOSE: light oxidated nose, little fruity, not much here though. TASTE: little oxidated, some grains, little fruity. Rather disappointing.

JorisPPattyn (7879) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - JUL 27, 2014
Short-lived white head, well-carbonated peachskin-coloured beer, hazy. Nose with mannah and rootspices, grains and a hint at jenever. Overspiced, even if I can’t place the exact spice (maybe paradiseseed?) and dry citruszeste. Finish is again quite raw-alcoholic, as (sweetish) jenever. Lots of yeastnotes, dried fruit and medicinal. Bit burning MF, but generally speaking empty palate, but for the alcohol. Rather disappointing. The old Crespin name being hollowed out furither and further. Many thanks to the Vermeersch bros!

Alengrin (1025) - BELGIUM - JUL 13, 2014
Belgian triple style but just as much a ’bière de garde’, I suppose (a genre not easily distinguishable from Belgian ales, at least the top fermented ones). Snowy white, mousse-like, regular head that lasts, colour light blonde with vivid sparkling, lightly veiled after adding the ’fond’. Nose gets a pleasant malty sweetness and yeasty fruitiness, impressions of rye bread, coriander, blood orange, grass, apricot, white pepper; taste citrussy and some apple, sweetish, malty (in a classical honeyish and caramel-like way), a little bit resinous, fairly strong carbonisation, mineral-like, ending in a dry peppery hop bitterness and a bit of warming, wodka-like alcohol.

MiltonJr (2) - BRAZIL - JUN 29, 2014 does not count
Cerveja leve, álcool bem inserido. Sabor levemente frutado, baixo anargor. Pouco lupulada. Não repito.

Calisky (601) - ALSACE, FRANCE - APR 29, 2014
UPDATED: AUG 8, 2014 Couleur jaune, petite mousse blanche.Nez de malt et fruit (banane). Gout leger de malt, notes de levure et acidulées. Fin assez legère pour une triple.
