Blond rich beer that is brewed each year during the easter period. It contains several types of malt and during brewing 3 herbs are added. It's golden blond colour, it's high alcohol concentration of 10 %, it's full and balanced taste make this beer into a source of vitality and strength which will appeal to the demanding beer taster. For ideal tasting pour out gently in one pull to a temperature round 7-8° C. Served with pride it is drunken with respect. This pleasant golden blond beer is chosen for he who loves a richer, somewhat spicy and refreshing beer.

Unde (329) - Helsinki, FINLAND - FEB 25, 2014
Slightly hazy yellow beer with light head. Aroma is interesting with apples and fresh sweet fruits. But then taste. Oh my god. There is some fruity flavors, and spices, mainly anise but that strong alcohol in the end is so bad. Ultimate carbonation with medium body. This was actually really hard to drink because of the carbonation and high alcohol content. Definitely not my pint of beer.

Bottle. Dark gold, large white head leaving lacing. Aroma: very fruity with yellow pears and oranges + dried peel, berries, yeast. Taste: dried tropical fruits, candy, malty, vanilla, bubblegum, some white wine, some spicy yeast. Above medium-bodied, quite high carbonation. Very nice!

Wow, nice. Can't readily identify the flavors I'm getting. But I like them! Sweet. Tastes like Easter? Candy? Who knows ... Good!! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

gwillrich (150) - São José dos Campos, BRAZIL - JAN 31, 2014
Forte aroma adocicado, de algo como pêssego e banana. O álcool a 10% deu uma quebrada no dulçor.

mathieuc (1145) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 26, 2014
Pours a clear golden with a medium white head that leaves high grade lacing. Nose is fruity and spices, not quite cloves but more than pepper. Sweet white/light candi syrup and alcohol. Taste is sweet but not cloying, spicy. A classic belgian strong/tripel, really. Body is medium, carbonation high. Sweet and spicy finish. Good one but if I had to choose between Red and Blue...

Nice beer. Kind of like a very spicey and herbal tripel. Tasty and original.

Lagerboy (1172) - British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 2, 2014
75 cl corked and caged bottle, 2010 vintage. Unclear golden, big lasting creamy white head slowly settles. Aroma of Belgian yeast and spices. Juicy fruity esters and smooth sweet malt flavor, some herbs and spices. Soft carbonation, medium bodied, lightly hopped. ABV well hidden. Some tart citrus towards the finish. Very nice. DNFL (Definitely Not For Lagerboys)

75 cl. bottle @ home, bought @ Hogerdijk, Culemborg. Hazy golden with a big dense white head, leaving a lacing on the glass. Fruity yeasty aroma. Sweet full fruity taste. Enormous luxurious fizzy creamy mouthfeel with some really well hidden alcohol.
