Grumlig brunorange öl med lättare smutsvitt skum. Doft av malt och alkoholiga vingummitoner. Smaken döljer alkoholen något bättre. Marsipan och bittermandel.

BeerCast_Rich (1879) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAY 1, 2012
[330ml bottle courtesy of dantheman278] Opaque beige beer, totally flat. Sweet, alcohol forward aroma. Touch of bourbon. Highly carbonated. Sweet marzipan and almond on the flavour. Lots of yeasty banana in the mix as well – if I’m honest, there’s just too much going on, everything clashes and it ends in a sweet muddle [22042012]

dantheman278 (1361) - SCOTLAND - APR 22, 2012
Bottle from Biererei. Hazy golden brown, very small head fades to nothing. Big caramel nose, hint of yeast character, berries, bananas, open alcohol. Nice honey palate, caramel, zesty fruits, alcohol, big sugar, a bit over-sweet but not too bad.

Leighton (10988) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 2, 2012
Bottle at home in London. Pours hazy, amber-red with a thick, creamy, off-white head. Some slight tang on the nose, a bit of toast and caramel. Fairly sweet, definitely a bit too tangy, some piney bitterness, caramel, some underripe fruits. Full bodied with fine to average carbonation. Lightly warming finish, tangy malts, some light earth, pine, toasted bread. The tang is a bit off-putting, and I have to imagine this is not the way it ought to be. In the end, it’s just alright.

garrettdcole (23) - Vienna, AUSTRIA - FEB 8, 2011
I have sampled this beer 5 or 6 times at this point (between purchases from Biererei and Bier Imperium, Wien) and I have to say I am still amazed. This is currently one of my favorite beers! As other reviewers have previously noted the flavor profile is much more dubbel than tripel; in fact, in my opinion the taste and appearance are quite similar to t Smisje Dubbel from Regenboog: sweet, yet slightly funky, with a perfectly balancing bitterness. I am very happy to have finally found an Austrian beer that can compete with the Belgians.

nate2g (1548) - Boomtown! / Waikato, NEW ZEALAND - APR 24, 2010
Bottle (Vintage 2009). Pours reddish brown with a thin white head. Toffeeish nose, caramel, berries and alcohol. The flavour is toffee, caramel, sugar, fruit and alcohol. Sweet and cloying. Big boozy finish. Needs plenty of time in the bottle to mellow out and it’s way to hot at the moment.
