An epic brew from Achilles, a red-brown rich and malty masterpiece with just a dash of hoppy bitterness for balance.

PlutonowyMan (107) - POLAND - MAY 27, 2015
Kolor jest ciemno czerwony, br?zowy, mglisty z ma?o sympatycznym osadem ma dnie, ale jak to mówi? co nas nie zabija to nas wzmacnia, wi?c mo?e b?dzie dobrze. Piana zbudowana z drobnych p?cherzyków, be?owa. Niestety do?? szybko opada, redukuj?c si? do niewielkiego pier?cienia. Aromat bardzo intensywny, w pierwszym rzucie mamy miód ale raczej nie w formie p?ynnej. Do tego dochodz? daktyle, likier z fig i rodzynek, nieco aromatów koniakowych, przyprawy, cukier kandyzowany. Smak bardzo miodowy, pojawiaj? si? ponownie figi i daktyle, karmel, generalnie s?odko, cho? piwo wcale nie zamula i nie zakleja. Ponownie jak w zapachu s? tu akcenty winne czy nawet koniakowe. W Serafijn Grand Cru goryczka jest raczej niska, nieznaczna. Wysycenie ?rednie w kierunku do wysokiego. Alkohol cho? jest go 9% jest odczuwalny tylko raczej jako przyjemne ciepe?ko. Faktura piwa raczej wydaje si? by? t?usta jednak nie daje wra?enia, ?e piwo jest masywne. Mo?na raczej odnie?? wra?enie, ?e jest lekko wodniste.

18/IV/15 - 33cl bottle from Willems (Grobbendonk) @ home - BB: 19/III/15 (2015-450)

Gusher alert!
Clear red to orange beer, big creamy to fizzy off-white head, unstable, dissipates quickly, non adhesive. Aroma: banana overload, very sweet and sugary, yeast, some orange peel, more banana. MF: way too much carbonation, medium to full body. Taste: sweet and sugary start, lots of overripe banana, some citrus, yeast. Aftertaste: little spicy, soft bitterness, cloves, bit of orange peel, yeast.

Poured a clear medium amber with a thin white head. The aroma is caramel, fruit, alcohol and yeast.

Alengrin (3019) - BELGIUM - OCT 10, 2014
Not the actual tripel in this range but still a tripel-like beer, with a cream white, decreasing, thin head and warm ’old gold’ colour; bready and doughy character, fruity (apple, peach), some weak honeyish sweetness, yeasty with mild spiciness, but solvents as well. Not the masterpiece as claimed above, but more than acceptable.

guiroul33 (220) - Bordeaux, FRANCE - SEP 28, 2014
Clear amber color, minimal head. Aroma of caramel, pear, liquor, fruit tart. Taste is rather sweet but well balanced, with a warming alcohol feeling in the aftertaste, and a long finish. Nice!

Dit vond ik persoonlijk niet zo goed. Niet veel speciaals aan de smaak. Dan is de donkere beter

EddyBeer1 (1032) - Brussels, BELGIUM - JUL 28, 2014
Ambrée légèrement voilée, effervescence moyenne, col beige moyen tombe assez vite. Principalement maltée, caramel léger, notes fruitées, un rien épicée, l’alcool se fait légèrement sentir. Un bon cru.

Bijna helder, donker amberkleurig, kleine licht crèmekleurige kraag. Combinatie van mout, caramel en fruitige hop.
