COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
(ik haat B. C.) A Natale, Kerst in fiammingo, siamo tutti più buoni. Anche la nostra Kerst vorrebbe esserlo, ma non riesce a togliersi di dosso l’istinto naturale a far del male. Attenzione, dunque. Schiuma prorompente e cremosa, lo spettro olfattivo è dominato da un violento fruttato che ricorda le mele caramellate ed in secondo piano la pasta reale siciliana. Etilica in bocca, con un attacco morbido subito aggredito da una tagliente freschezza acida. Da abbinare ad una fredda serata invernale.

Bottled 330ml (PBF, BB 11/2012)
Hazy dark orange color, huge cloudy off-white head. Berryish, a bit spicey aroma. Medium-bodied. Very sweet, berryish flavor with Belgian-.style yeastyness and some burning alcohol (mostly sweetness overrides it). Some peppery notes too.

GT2 (8354) - San Diego County, California, USA - APR 15, 2012
330mL. Hazy golden pour. Thick buttermilk head. Sweet yellow apple nose with spices and lemon sorbet. Taste is richer with tangy apple pie. Richer abbey Tripel notes with dark cherry and figs. Good stuff. A sweet beer with delicate complexities. Good stuff. Rich, oily palate with a blend of dark fruit and citrus. Amazed. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Rune (7958) - Tromsø, NORWAY - DEC 30, 2012
330ml bottle, lotto 349-10, bought in March 2012 at Johnny Off License (Via Veio), in Roma and kept in my cellar for drinking pleasure this Christmas. Pours a firm off-white head and a near-clear, amber coloured body. Sediments to the last pour. No lacing. Aroma of dusty hops and fresh, sweet fruits. Earthy malts, dry lemon and overall a candy sweet fruity taste profile softened by spices and partially offset by bittersweet oranges to the finish. Warming and velvety mouthfeel. Mostly integrated alcohol. Nice, however, too sweet for a higher score (Saturday eve at home, Tromsø 29.12.2012).

JorisPPattyn (7879) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - MAR 12, 2011
Again near-explosively lively beer, totally hazed & yeast in suspension, dark orange under a towering yellow, dense head, very slowly collapsing. Glühwein spices, if mild, and lots of fruit(esters), mainly citrus; and thinned palmhearts of ditto artichokehearts. Sweat, citrus; faint acidity surrounding a serious, if unsweet maltbase. Spiced/yeasty finish, but not specifically Glühwein spices, if clovey indeed. Slick, bit buttery texture, heavy to overcarbonated, spritzy. Breadyeast in the aftertaste. Extratripel, compared to that one. Mille grazie, ragazzi!

CaptainCougar (7129) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - APR 15, 2012
33cl bottle, shared by ryan: pours a hazy dark golden with a stringy-lacing white head. Has a sweet biscuity light malty sweetness with some light fruity esters. Starts with pretty good fullness and rich pale malty sweetness with some licorice and clove spice before a slightly warming bready finish. Well-balanced and fairly complex.

Bottle. Pours clear gold with thin, fizzy white head; short retention and spare lacing. Aroma is corn, biscuit and straw malt, lemon, grassy hops, and herbs. Flavor is balanced malt and fresh fruit esters; sweet white wine undertones throughout with a crisp, dry finish. Light body, medium carbonation, and low warmth.
