Bière d’abbaye reconnue (dont l’historique remonte à 1096, c’est plus que nos grands-parents !!). Titre respectable de 9 % abv. Couleur dorée brillante superbe. Clarté nette. Myriade de bulles fines en tous sens, splendide. Mousse blanche très épaisse et crémeuse, bien stable et texture d’œuf battu en haut. Arômes de malt pils, houblon, pain blanc, zeste de citron, pointe e bois blanc. 1ère bouche soyeuse à la belle prise douce sur des malts et houblons, avec une fine épice. Arrière-bouche très accommodante sur le malt pils. 2ème avec un malt un rien grillé, petite pointe d’agrumes très légère. Arrière-bouche douce, fine mais pas très longue. 3ème sur du malt clair, des petits fruits blancs, de la mie de pain. Arrière-bouche tout en douceur (sans chaleur d’alcool). Sur la longueur, l’alcool développe enfin un peu de sa force, et travaille les saveurs pour y donner un peu de bois, et équilibrer le tout. Les jambes sont groupées, unies. La levure est douce, fine, très correcte pour une triple. L’alcool tarde à se manifester, mais fait un bon travail sur la longueur et la finale. La finale est plus chaude et complexe que le reste, mais manque un peu d’ampleur. CONCLUSION : une bière d’abbaye qui n’a pas à rougir de son nom (sans jeu de mot, cfr la Noël …). Elle offre d’abord une extraordinaire présentation visuelle dans le premier verre. Elle nous donne aussi une belle longueur et finale. Seules ses premières bouches très timides lui enlève des points.

Braudog (5894) - Traveling the USA, Missouri, USA - JUL 3, 2010
Bottle. Hazy straw-colored pour with a stoic head of tight white foam. The aroma is lightly yeasty. But the beer delivers a full-blown kick of wild yeast as it’s main character. Rich and full bodies. (#3939, 7/3/2010)

UPDATED: JUL 6, 2012 From a 33cl bottle at the BRUX-ALE Kuala Lumpur. Pours a gold blonde color and huge white head that stay long time. Aroma of malts and flowers. Flavors, complex, malts, grapefruits, light banana, hops, hints of spices and vanilla. Nice hops power, floral and nice sparkling bitterness. Strong flavors, some alcohol feel. Long lasting flavors and fresh bitterness. Very nice and enjoyable, quite complex overall. Really satifiying. wonderfull. One more please!

Mild sweet aroma. Light amber with rich white cap. Good balanced taste with roasted caramel notes in the bitterness, bitter aftertaste on the tongue root.

Yeast and bread in the aroma and taste. Lots of fruit in the aroma. Pours a hazy golden color, with little lacing. Not boozy at all. Low bitterness.

Spicy with a bit of honied sweetness. Clear yellow with a light body. Crisp flavor, almost pilseneresque. Tried with Dave and Jess at the Bruges Bierfest in 2012.

Aroma is a mellow, well-blended citrus and pine, light and fluffy like marshmallow versions of themselves. Head is so amazingly fluffy that even my middling pouring skills didn’t destroy it. At the first sip, my eyes open wider. The last time that happened, I was drinking a Westvleteren 12 and then an Oesterstout. That’s when you know you’re about to taste something impressive. This beer isn’t as complex or as dark as those, being a tripel, but it’s a nicely balanced flavor. Notes are icy butterscotch, coffee, toast, dry, roasty, banana, faint cider, grass, herbs, nuts, hay, a little floral, faint bubblegum... maybe some licorice and vanilla. Aftertaste is sprucey with a bit of citrus and dough. It’s very nice.

Bottle. Bright and clear golden color, medium white head, solid lacing. Aroma of white pepper, straw, hay. Taste starts sweet, then bitter and peppery with a bit of spice. Nice.
