guzgorog (705) - FRANCE - JUN 13, 2016
Tasting box 1. Robe Duvel : jaune pale, limpide, haute mousse blanche tenace. Nez sur les agrumes : mandarine, orange, pamplemousse. Attaque comme une duvel, levure et épice, légèrement poivrée, puis les houblons se révèlent sur des multiples saveurs d’agrumes : orange sanguine, pamplemousse, mandarine, citron vert. Belle amertume, alcool présent mais pas tant vu la teneur alcoolique. Excellente bière comme à chaque pour la tripel hop !

Medium dry bitter, sweet note, light warming background. Medium body, thin texture, good carbonation, dry fruity bitter finish. Overall, a really good fruity bitter ale ; good body.
