Pours a sparkling amber liquid with a foamy white head that lasts". The aroma is yeasty with hints of grapefruits and ginger. Taste of citrus, notes of orange, spices, and yeast. The alcohol taste is too strong. Very sparkling. Fair bitterness. Missing some complexity. Bof..

Szalmasárga színű főzet egy krémszerű habbal a tetején, mely ugyan nem tör az egekig, ám rendkívül stabil és hosszan tartó. Illata jellegzetes, kissé fanyar és enyhén szúrós, pezsgőhöz, almaborhoz hasonló. Íze az illatok által előirányzott módon kissé édeskésen, mézeskalácsos zamatokkal, enyhén alkoholosan indul, majd csatlakozik hozzá egy kellemesen savanykás jelleg egy csipetnyi almával gazdagítva, mely egy határozott, komlós végízben folytatódik, így alkotva egy rendkívül telt és igen hosszan megmaradó ízvilágot.

Bottle. Yet another fruity tripel, but this has sweet peaches, grain and a bitterness to balance. Nice.

Alpha10 (304) - Ontario, CANADA - MAY 15, 2014
2014/05/15 - Pours a hazy, orange/honey colour with a thick, foamy, white head that quickly reduces to a lingering surface film. Aroma is biscuit, Belgian yeast, mild funk, citrus, pineapple, bubblegum and spices. Taste is biscuit, orange, Belgian yeast, caramel, spices and alcohol with metallic and medicinal notes. Medium bodied with lots of sharp carbonation and a dry, warming finish. Pleasant enough, but I found it hard to get past the metallic and medicinal notes. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Icedwarf (253) - Etten-Leur, NETHERLANDS - APR 6, 2014
Donkergeel, helder bier met mooie schuimkraag en gemiddeld koolzuur. Smaak is bitter hoppis en iets zurig, appel. Blijft lang hangen. Smaak heeft veel weg van Duvel.

the aroma is fruity and malty with shades of citrus fruits... the taste is fruity in the beginning, more malty in the ending... rather spicy with dry and warming aftertaste...
