Bière de ferme à l’ancienne, pur malt et houblon, sans épices, ni additifs. Bière ronde, légèrement ambrée et trouble, assez douce, belle amertume en fin de palais. La bouche est ample, voluptueuse, rafraîchissante et discrètement caramélisée.

Draft. Cuivrée-ambrée au col blanc assez fin qui s’estompe assez rapidement. Arôme présente un bouquet qui surprend avec une signature très belge et assez unique. Je note une influence conséquente de fruits noirs; entre prune et raisin sec, suivi par un sucré et malt qui ajoute une certaine complexité. Rétro-nasal offre une influence subtile rappelant un pomme-caramel. Palais est malté, caramel, léger sucré sur un petit ester fruité et une levure signature très belge, possible Val-Dieu? L’amertume se ressent dans l’usage modéré de malt pâles-cara qui laissent néanmoins percer un profil biscuité agréable agrémenté par un fruité noir de prune, date et raisin. Le fini oscille sur des notes herbacées pour une amertume des houblons qui arrive en fin de bouche et donne une pointe subtile de citronné houblon-neutre. Quoique restant dans une influence typiquement belge, cette bière à l’avantage de se distinguer des autres nouvelles par une signature assez unique.

Bottle from LDW drinks. Clear golden colour, white creamy foam. Medium carbonation. Cloying sweet with fruity notes of banana. Sugary, light bitter aftertaste. Unbalanced. Not very good.

KyotoLefty (8135) - Kyoto, JAPAN - NOV 2, 2015
Bottle from Yamaya. Big surprise. Malty, slightly sugary nose, orange estery, light lemony hops, bit of over-ripe fruits. Yeasty, malty flavor, very estery, somehat heavy. Strange bitterness in there as well. Rather juicy. Not terrible, but a bit heavy and muddled. Somewhat boozy too.

Besides the sugar and the alcohol, the taste is shy, and doesn’t stay long in mouth. Nothing much to add, except that it may be difficult to drink a whole bottle (50cl).

50 cl bottle @ home. Clear orange beer with a small white head, non-adhesive. Aroma is lots of banana, lemon, herbal touch. Medium carbonation. Taste is banane, lemons, grains, bitter. Aftertaste is pretty herbal, banana, grains, bit dry.

Jaune dorée, effervescence moyenne, attaque sur l’alcool, malt et rondeur sucrée, alcool pas agressif mais bien présent jusqu’en finale, une bonne triple, très classique, mais qui manque de singularité. Bouteille 50cl achetée chez Intercaves, Noisy-le-Grand, France, bue le 30/09/2015.

Rubin77 (326) - Bratislava, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - SEP 22, 2015
F: average white. C: yellow gold, hazy. A: malty, fruity, some banana, hops, hint of earthy yeast. T: malty, white sugar, some decent citrusy/orange peel, syrupy dry finish, low hoppy bitterness, medium body, average carbonation, nothing special but refreshing abbey tripel could be more hoppy maybe.

The triple in the Bertinchamps cliché trinity, from a stout 50 cl bottle (which seems rather much for a triple) with a very simple, straightforward label. No spices used, apparently, so I have no reason to fear overt coriander this time. Irregular, moussy, lacing, light yellowish white head residing over a clear, warm orange blonde beer with quiet sparkling. Aroma of strong banana and bubblegum ester (isoamylacetate), dough, biscuit, pineapple, peach, clove- and even varnish-like phenols, flowers, white pepper, hint of whisky-like alcohol. Rounded, sweet fruitiness in the onset, emphatically banana- and fruit bubblegum-like, some peach and melon, bit sugary (white candi sugar!), medium tingling carb, smooth and supple mouthfeel, bit resinous, pale malt sweetness with a biscuity and caramelly layer on top of it, white candi sugar sweetness remaining, leading to a sweetish, but not cloying finish with clove-like spicy phenols and a soft, deep, dull, lightly leafy and herbal hop bitterishness which remains in the background; some warming liqueurish alcohol shows up as well, but not obnoxiously. The residual white candi sugar sweetness and prominent banana-bubblegum flavour linger. Well-rounded tripel, no obvious flaws, but too sweet and bubblegum-like, even tilted to the sugary side with not enough hop bitterness to balance it; a redundant beer, but I cannot blame these people for trying, of course, and I kind of like the simplicity of the bottle and label. Also better than their Blonde I had at Heeren Van Liedekercke a few years ago, though I can imagine that one has improved meanwhile too.

50 cl bottle. Pours a clear deep yellow with white head. Aroma of fruits and bubblegum with a hint of phenol. Taste is slightly sweet. Palate is amazingly smooth. Fantastic beer.
