eManu (479) - Kuala Lumpur & Brussels, - JUL 22, 2012
From a 33cl that was expired on 22.7.11. Pours a light hazy amber color with a nice thick off white head. Aroma of Malts, hops and sugars. Flavore of malts, light hops, sugars, sirups, grains. Grainy feel and strong liquor finish, butterscotch also. A bit to sweet, although it has this slight bitter sweet finish but with too much sweetness. Ok, but One is enough.

susonagger (70) - spain, - MAY 13, 2015
Cerveza de abadía, tipo tripel, 9 % de alcohol, de alta fermentación y con segunda fermentación en botella. Como su nombre indica, la Augustijn Grand Cru es la versión tripel de la Augustijn Blond: siendo más fuerte, en graduación alcohólica y amargor, que luce un color dorado haciendo honor a su fama de ser una de las maravillas en el firmamento de las cervezas belgas. Su aroma afrutado, típico de una triple, combina con su pronunciado amargor debido al abundante uso de varios tipos de lúpulo y esa magnifica combinación se perfecciona durante la segunda fermentación en botella, donde se forma de manera natural esa grandiosa capa de espuma.

Hmmm, this is a complex beer. Its thick, hoppy and spicy, but also fruity and yeasty. Def a grand cru!

ClubGonzo (4548) - Bergen, NORWAY - APR 28, 2015
Bottle. Pours a clear deep golden body with a massive cloudy off-white head. Nose is red fruits, light candi sugar, caramel, pale malts and hints of straw, bread and biscuits. Taste is light candi sugar, prunes, caramel, bread dough and hints of banana, straw, grass and mild white pepper. Medium to full body, high carbonation. Decent BSA without ever making a lasting expression.

Muggus69 (1409) - Yarram, Vic, AUSTRALIA - APR 13, 2015
330mL from International Beer Collector BB 19/8/16 Hazy blonde beer, lively looking - holds a good dense creamy inch of head. Subtle aroma; cereal malts, white sugar, a pretty decent measure of floral, spicy hops, faint tropical/ripe stonefruit note. Good weight on the body, sits rather nicely, creamy almost velvety , lifted carbonation - doesn’t seem like a 9% beer! Palate starts sweet - cereally, pilsner/pale malts, white sugar, apricots, unripe peach, even a bit of rockmelon, with peppery phenolics & hint of floral grassy hops. Moderate bitterness, lingering spice on long finish. Rather liked this - not as polished as better Tripels, but nice flavour.

Marduk (3592) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - APR 2, 2015
330ml bottle (Alus Celle, Riga). Clear amber color. Medium size, thick white head, stays. Dead yeast, caramel, alcohol, faint fruity notes, malty and straw in aroma. Plastic, alcohol, caramel, burnt sugar, papery taste. Crisp mouthfeel. Malty plastic in aftertaste. And faint spicy hops in late late aftertaste.

Shark_Pants (396) - AUSTRALIA - MAR 27, 2015
Nice amber colour with large frothy white head. Aroma is dominated by musty belgian yeast, with honey, toast and apricot jam. The taste is the same but with a very strong booze. Medium bodied and spicy on the tongue. Not bad at all but the lack of subtlety with the booze really detracts.

rdb84 (243) - NETHERLANDS - MAR 23, 2015
Bottle. Golden, honey pour with lasting head. Aroma: almond paste, soap, grass, lemon, hint of pine, boozy touch. Taste is sour and sweet, almost like a candy. Hint of almond paste. Slightly boozy, cherry. Robust. Bitterness in the development. Nice.

RhetoricalAns (522) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 22, 2015
330 mL bottle. Hazy golden pour, bubbly white head that doesn’t last. Yeasty grain aroma. Flavor follows with some more spice. Okay Belgian.
