Full body - staying head - amber color with a spicy, malty palate that finishes very fruity with complex hoppy undertones.

Amber colored to straw yellow with thick white foam. Smells like a strongly alcoholic tripel - wine graps and sauerkraut are immediate associations I get. The mouth feel is temperamental and fizzy, and the taste contains rock candy, grapes, apple cider vinegar and alcohol. Less complicated than I prefer my tripels to be - too much alcohol in the taste.

For whichever reason, there just isn’t much to smell here. The color is like that of an American malt liquor existing for no other reason than for rapid intoxication at neglidgable cost. I guess it smells like a lightweight househould oil if you strain your nostrils hard enough (think 10wt.) I was expecting something dark, but instead got this oily, filtered biscuity yeast beast, bright as the sun. At least I like the smell of a good working garage shop or I would have to fail this beer entirely.

Overall yeasty and malty , some melted butter , smooth and slick . Some hop dryness and bitterness at the finish. Not much of a head a pale gold body, but lots of lacing .

psilosophy (506) - vitry en artois, FRANCE - AUG 29, 2014
Bouteille de 33cl. Couleur or pale, mousse correcte de tenue moyenne. Un houblon assez présent, des épices, une note de frangipane. Rien de stupéfiant mais l’ ensemble est bien équilibré, l’ alcool supporte bien le tout.

ChristianHR (191) - DENMARK - AUG 20, 2014
The smell is sweet of caramel with notes of the bitterness from a good quality champagne. Pours hazy yellow with a thick white head. Tastes sweet of caramel, dates, nuts and raisin. The bitter finish got tones of lemon. The mouth feel is rather thick but also very carbonated and crisp.

lobs_ols (137) - LATVIA - AUG 18, 2014
Gold with a strong white head. Spices, alcohol and yeast on the nose. Sweet and strong on the tongue, some bitterness and lingering alcohol tingling in the finish. Bretty gud.

Van alle augustijn-bieren de enige tegenvaller. Een fletse smaak, ik vond het een teleurstelling
