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

Bottle shared at a tasting at Dancing Camel. Thanks Hansen & Zita for this bottle! Pours orange with a nice head, aroma of grapes, wort, apricot jam and figs, flavor of honey, caramel and dried fruits, medium bodied

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.

Alengrin (2994) - 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 (218) - 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.

DrSilverworm (8155) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUN 3, 2014
Taster on tap at Ei8ht Ball. Mostly hazy orange color. Thin ring of white head. Couple dots of lace. Interesting aroma. Like orange cream candy. Orange, some vanilla, light spice. Moderate sweet taste, light spicy. Light nice bit of alcohol warmth. Solid, satisfying belgian strong ale.
