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.

JulienHuxley (2512) - Hilversum, NETHERLANDS - APR 12, 2014
Bottle from the brewery shop. Lightly hazy glowing amber pour with white head. Aroma is fruity, light alcohol, white fruits, peaches, orange peel, quite malty. Taste is sweet, lots of orange, light lemon, peach and pear, very fruity but enjoyable fruity flavors. Palate is full bodied with good carbonation. Nice pale BSA.

AgentAle (398) - Alberta, CANADA - APR 6, 2014
Aroma is that of dark fruits like plum and raisin. Some pear and apple notes aswell. Some bread and yeast notes. Taste is quite sweet with the Belgian sugars popping out. So. E very subtle bitterness with some brief liquor kick. Finishes smooth and warm. Body is clear and gold with a thick lace head that retains very well.

ABT_S54 (81) - West Midlands, ENGLAND - MAR 16, 2014
75cl Bottle shared in a Delirium Tremens glass. Pours a wonderful blonde colour with a voluminous white head. Taste is typical Belgian Tripel but on the sweet side. Fantastic beer which is truly worthy of the bottle and label. A superior blonde/tripel Belgian beer. Delicious.
