Geel bier met veel stevig schuim. Smaak is bitter hoppig, fris fruitig, licht zoet met iets van sinaasappel en citrus. Mooie balans.

AgentAle (1528) - Alberta, CANADA - SEP 12, 2016
Aroma is citrus, lemongrass, slight sour and tart. Taste is a fresh almost saison palate with a deep bittering profile that surprised me for this beers origin. Qwerky beer with some hoppy punch on the end Appearance is hazy gold with a frothy pearl head that retains very well . Some medium sediment t in suspension.

Hazy golden beer. Aroma of grass and citrusy zest and a bready smell there too. Flavour pretty much exactly follows up as you’d expect, with the citrus coming through stronger and it’s quite tangy. Aftertaste is bitter and drier. Really nice.

ulrikolsen (338) - DENMARK - AUG 19, 2016
Tap. Pours hazy golden with lazing white head. Aroma has light malt, biscuit, spices like coriander and pepper yet hoppy with citrus notes. Taste is light malty, spicy and hoppy and quite fresh and bitter. A modern version of the tripel. Finish is quite hoppy and bitter.

zacgillbanks (4454) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - AUG 18, 2016
Bottle from Spar Supermarket, Lyon, France. Hazy pale yellow-orange in colour with a thick white head of foam. It has a spicy lemon, floral fruit and citrus flavour with herbal notes on the warming fruity finish. This is rather like a Belgian IPA. Very good indeed.

Piana obfita, drobno i średnio pęcherzykowa, trwała. Barwa jasno złota, słomkowa, opalizująca, piwo mocno "gazuje w szkle". Aromat delikatnie biszkoptowy, kwiatowy, ziołowy oraz brzoskwiniowy, winogronowy i lekko cytrusowy. W smaku półwytrawny, ponownie jasne winogrono, białe wino, brzoskwinie, nafta, do tego średnia, wyraźnie ziołowa goryczka kontrująca bananowo ciasteczkową podstawę słodową. Wysycenie średnie do wysokiego.
Fajny tripel, ładnie ukryty alkohol, nieźle pijalny, solidnie nachmielony i nagazowany. Taka klasyka z mocniejszym chmieleniem...

Waaay too bitter for the style. It's unfortunate that this love for hops has taken over other styles. Moeder Brussels. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

330ml bottle. Light floral and orange peel aroma. Pours a cloudy dark yellow with a frothy off-white head and good lacing. Lemon, lime and orange citrus flavours with notes of coriander, pepper and cloves. Full bodied with some warming alcohol sensation. Long bitter citrus finish.
