Un vrai travail sur une blonde triple, avec du pur malt, une bière naturelle sur levure, sans aucune épice, avec un niveau alcoolique pourtant limité à 7,5 % abv Couleur ambre moyen. Clarté nette. Bulles moyennes très abondantes partout. Mousse blanche qui tombe vite mais reste bien crémeuse en surface. Arômes de malt, houblon avec une pointe de cerise et citron. Volume soyeux. 1ère bouche avec une magnifique entrée sur le malt et les fruits blancs. Arrière-bouche sur l complexe houblon/malt. 2ème sur la levure et un houblon fin, avec une pointe de fleur de sel. Arrière-bouche très pleine et équilibrée. 3ème admirable et complexe (fruits, bois, malt, houblon). La longueur est magnifique, en constante amélioration sur le complexe. La levure est construite, étudiée pour le propos. La finale est complète. On peut juste s’étonner du 7,5 abv, quoique l’ampleur a été à mon agréable surprise efficace pour une triple. Merveilleuse blonde de grand savoir, qui me surprend autant que la brune par son côté très complet.

Poured into a St. Bernardus goblet ( every fine ale deserves a fine chalice! ), this blonde is a thick, hazy orange, with gigantic head on her, puffy, off-white, leaving copious lace behind. Beautiful. Aroma is uplifting yeast, spice, and lemon zest...a bit tart and sharp, but a so thrilling, nonetheless, as it truly stands out. Enters the palate meekly, but well-armed. It’s a soft and lovely thing, with a transcendent character that can’t easily be pegged. It’s just a little beyond what you’d expect. Mild, maybe, but packed with spice and citrus fruit, it’s a flavorful treat. Forward mouthfeel, benifitted from the lush carbonation, this delightful blonde is anything but light, and swims merrily in the mouth, yeast contributing largely to the powerful presence on the palate. I mean, it’s just yummy, that’s what I’m trying to say! Truly, I don’t think these guys can make anything ordinary. This would be a nice dessert beer, a nightcap if you’re not into a big bruiser like a barleywine or imperial stout. Or, it could be a dinner choice, but only if you have time to relect with every taste, to fall back in your chair and revel at the very wow of it.

A delicious unfiltered Belgian ale. Lots of floating particulates. Deliciously smooth, with a very yeasty and sweet finish. At 7.5% I find the line between a Belgian blonde ale and a triple pretty vague and blurry, this beer could easily hold it’s own as either. Mellow and warming, an awesome beer.

BeerBaboon (1538) - FINLAND - NOV 3, 2012
Pours hazy, dirty yellow / orange. White head. This is a very good beer without any of the fancy stuff. Very pure and fresh. Just delicious and very easy to drink. A big bottle of this disappeared extremely fast when I shared this with a friend last night. Here we are at the basics of brewing. Yeast, malt and hops.

hotstuff (4058) - Indiana, USA - APR 19, 2005
Bottle. Large off-white head that was mostly lasting, good lacing, fine-large sized bubbles, carbonated, hazy, and a golden hue. Aroma was malty, sweet, spicy and clove. Flavor was bitter, malty, sweet, hoppy and spicy. Mouthfeel was tingly. Medium body. An excellent and very quaffable brew. Give this one a try if you get the chance.

YK23 (465) - Haifa, ISRAEL - MAY 31, 2006
Very complex beer, i really enjoyed it. A cloudy orange colour, thin head, almost no lacing, woody and spicy aroma, some honey and apples too. Taste wise, caramel, apples, muscat, honey, bubble gum, candy suger, flowery, some soapy and herbal hoppy nots, a bit chalky mouthfill, overall a really good beer.

11.2 oz bottle. Golden color with lots of chunks of sediment. Bright white head. Aroma has a sharp acidic component along with sweet malt and wheat. Flavor starts off with a lemon acidity then quickly turns sweet with malt and wheat. Very nice smooth flavor. The wife loves it too. I also get some light spice flavors and yeast. Very tasty and refreshing brew.

TheBeerOrg (2145) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - FEB 7, 2007
Pours hazy golden witha big fluffy off-white head. Aroma of yeasty esters and spicy phenols: notes of apple, pear, orange and honey. Taste is sweet, yeasty, notes of cotton candy, pineapples, honey, and pears. Very robust Belgian yeast byproducts. Mouthfeel is medium to full bodied with lively, supple carbonation. Quite nice, but a bit rough around the edges, seemed almost too fresh, although I doubt it.
