Alengrin (4604) - BELGIUM - JUL 30, 2014
The tripel in the Montaigu-series, named after the town of Scherpenheuvel (which translates to Montaigu in French). Yellowish white, mousse-like head on a brownish peach blonde beer, cloudy. Fruity and yeasty aroma with impressions of orange, peach, lemon peel, sour cream, coriander, honey, potato and rhubarb; taste fruity with light citrus touch, otherwise rather neutral, softly malty, bit honeyish, finishing mildly florally hoppy but otherwise a bit watery.

Bottle @ home. Golden blond coloured beer with some light carbonation and a large dence but diminishing white head. Rather fruity and floral hinted hoppy aroma. Medium to full palate. Finish is light yeasty and short roasted malty hinted with a sweeter fruity hoppy ending. Nicely balanced brew.
