Difficult to develop something, this is simply a beer. Easely drinkable, but nothing remarkable.

Bière qui n’as pas beaucoup de goût. Arrière goût amère. Bière sans beaucoup d’intérêt

A rather bitter tripel with an aroma of yeast, hops and alcohol. But it’s overall the alcohol and bitterness wich overrules.

Draught @ Gastropuben KICK Malt & Mat, Kristiansand
Pours slightly hazy golden with a white head. Aroma has notes of malt, yeast, fruitiness, alcohol and hint of citrus. Taste is light to medium sweet and light bitter with a long warm, yeasty and fruity finish. Body is medium to full, texture is oily, carbonation is soft.

Hazy golden, airy and rocky white head. Fruity, malty and hoppy aroma, rather light. Flavour is fruity, spicy and sweet. Strong malt and clear hops. Fluffy mouthfeel, nice.

ASPETTO: tra biondo oro carico e il leggerissimo ambrato. Schiuma bianca e persistente. Torbido, si vedono delle "file" di lieviti in sospensione. AROMA: molto piacevole, soprattutto floreale e di frutta gialla, con un tocco di erbaceo. GUSTO: all’abbocco è dolce, un buon fruttato (unito con un tocco di mieloso) che lascia presagire che ci troviamo davanti ad una grande birra. Poi però decade: i troppi lieviti in sospensione fanno percepire l’ultima parte del sorso e il retrogusto abbastanza amarognolo, ma di un amarognolo non piacevole, che lascia una brutta sensazione sulla lingua. Se mi ricapiterà di berla, sicuramente non verserò nel bicchiere i lieviti presenti nel fondo della bottiglia. L’alcool non è altissimo (8°) ma da leggermente alla testa.

Beer4000 (4950) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - FEB 22, 2015
On tap @ Kick. Unclear golden body with a fine, stable, foamy white head. Aroma has mild pale malt, light citric fruit, lemon and a bit spicy. Flavor feels light malty, refreshing fruity, balanced bitterness, spicy, grassy, floral and orange zest. This is a rather unusually trippel with much more bitterness than normal, but nothing reminds of the modern hoppy bitterness, the beer is fruity, but the bitterness feels more like herbal/grassy and citric zest. Very pleasant and a bit unusual, still not fantastic.

SinH4 (679) - SWITZERLAND - FEB 19, 2015
Golden color with medium white head. Sweet, floral, perfumy aroma. Taste is bitter and dry, unusual for a Tripel. Good carbonation, but low for a Tripel. Fine!

Ysok02 (223) - MOns, BELGIUM - FEB 12, 2015
Robe dorée, belle mousse. Nez complexe sur le houblon, le pamplemousse, un coté floral, de la pomme compotée, une pointe de levure. Bouche à l’attaque tendue, une très belle structure, une amertume marquée mais bien compensée par la puissance et la longueur aromatique de la bière. Un triple puissante et dominée par l’amertume mais d’un équilibre impressionnant.
