Hazy deep blond color. Sweetish aroma, malt, light jam. The mouthfeel is incredibly smooth; delicate sweet malt flavor with fruity touch; correctly, this beer has a low bitterness; light alcohol feeling in the end.
Very appreciated for its great harmony.

Aroma of malt, lots of yeast, spices, peppery notes, citrussy fruits, floral notes, light hops. Flavour is moderate sweet with a light to moderate bitter finish. A decent and complex Tripel.

A De Ryck főzde összességében 125. évfordulójára készített alkotás igen méltóságteljes, rendkívül elegáns és tekintélyes palackban rejtőzik egészen addig, míg valami mennyeien krémes habot képezve elő nem merészkedik fenséges folyamként. Tripelhez képest lehengerlő illatokkal kápráztat el minket, amiknek karaktere természetesen a gabonás, élesztős, korianderes háromság mentén egyensúlyoz, ezek mellett azonban megcsillant egy pajkosan édes, aszalt őszibarackos, mangóhúsos árnyalatot is. A krémesség foka szinte leírhatatlan, tejszínes habja mintegy koronadísze a bársonyosan lágy jegyeket felvonultató, selymesen puha testnek, tagadhatatlanul tripeles, élesztős és telt malátás, kandiscukros pillanatai közé india pale ale-jellegzetességek vésik be névjegyüket, így a gyümölcsösen komlós, karakteres szerkezet mesterien keveredik a klasszikusan belga, magasztos hangvétellel. Igazi ünnepi ital, mély nyomokat hagyó, feledhetetlen remekmű.

yngwie (14146) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - OCT 11, 2014
Bottle, 75cl. It pours a hazy, dark golden body under a dense, off-white head. Some lacings. The aroma has a Belgian yeastyness, with fruityness like peaches and orange peel. Some white sugar and pale malts. Rather boring, and the flavor is just the same. Full body, nice carbonation level, semi-sweet on the palate. Nice bitterness towards the finish. Sort of nice, but too yeasty for my likings. 141011

@Brussel Beer Weekend, 2014, Deze stond al een tijdje op mijn lijst als nog te proeven bieren, maar zag tegen de 75 cl op. Nu op dit bierfestival kon ik hem mooi eens proberen in een 15 cl glas. schenkt mooi oranje gouden met witte kraag. aroma en smaken van sinaasappel, citrus, gras, gist, zwak bittertje, matig zoet, wel een hoop koolzuur, bittertje, maar waarom heb ik de gehele 75 cl niet eens eerder gekocht ? deze had ik makkelijk op kunnen drinken, erg lekker biertje !!!!!

Head is average, frothy, off-white and slowly diminishing. Body is clear yellow-orange and sparkling. Aroma contains moderate hops, some malts and light yeasts, citrusfruits, caramel, grape, raisin, peach and spices. There's also some alcohol. Flavor is light acidic, then sweet and finally light bitter. Body is medium with creamy texture and soft carbonation. Nothing spectacular in aroma's, quite subtle in flavors. Still, I enjoyed it a lot.
