COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The king of the abbey beers. It is amber-gold and pours with a deep head and original aroma, delivering a complex, full bodied flavour. Pure enjoyment! Secondary fermentation in the bottle. (Temp: 8-10ºC)

Swaroga (1615) - Brussels, BELGIUM - JAN 12, 2015
Definitely one of the better Tripel style beers out there. Big point for being easy to buy all over Belgium. No fails and off flavors. It’s all about fruity esters, strong carbonation, good looks and alcohol which is quite frankly well hidden for this amount of alcohol. Well done.

Currently I am updating my ratebeer with al the beers I drank but was too lazy to rate at the time. I give the scores I gave back than. If I drink the beers again I might re-rate them.

Amber color with some Orange tint. Nice hoppy flavor with some spice to it. Probably should have had it at a colder temperature.

superspak (3070) - Michigan, USA - DEC 19, 2014
750 ml bottle into signature chalice, bottled on 6/4/2013. Pours fairly crystal clear bright golden color with a 1-2 finger dense and fluffy white head with great retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Nice spotty soapy lacing clings around the glass, with a moderate amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of big lemon, apricot, pear, apple, light banana, pepper, clove, honey, candi sugar, bread, herbal, floral, grass, light bubblegum, and yeast earthiness. Damn nice aromas with great balance and complexity of fruity/spicy yeast, pale malt, and earthy hop notes; with good strength. Taste of lemon, apricot, pear, apple, light banana, pepper, clove, honey, candi sugar, bread, herbal, floral, grass, light bubblegum, and yeast earthiness. Good amount of earthy yeast spiciness/hop bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of lemon, apricot, pear, apple, light banana, pepper, clove, honey, candi sugar, bread, floral, grass, light bubblegum, and herbal/yeast earthiness on the finish fora good bit. Fantastic complexity and balance of fruity/spicy yeast, pale malt, and earthy hop flavors; with a crisp malt/yeast/hop balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium-high carbonation and medium bodied; with a very smooth, crisp, and lightly prickly mouthfeel that is great. Alcohol is very well hidden with only a light warming present after the finish. Overall this is an awesome tripel style. All around great complexity, robustness, and balance of fruity/spicy yeast, pale malt, and earthy hop flavors; and very smooth and crisp to sip on for the big ABV. A highly enjoyable offering.
