bière blonde avec à réflection orange. l’Odeur de cette bière est franche avec des impressions de banane mûre et goût de marmelade. Goût plein et rond. cette bière est très buvable et elle a un goût original.

bottle. golden-amber body, small white head. alcoholic caramel aroma with lots of sugar. lively carbonation. sweet caramel flavour with some cookies in the finish. I wasn’t expecting this beer to taste like this but it turned out to be tasty and flavourful.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Deep golden. Big white head quickly recedes to ring. Massive honeyed sweet maltiness. Cough drops paired among floral yeast. Thick litchi maltiness, honeyed alcohol. Smoky and alcoholic as it warms like any Het Anker. Drying out nicely in mouth, but there’s too much malt to manage any kind of balance. A bit too sweet and fatiguing ultimately, but this is great smelling material. Sugar caney full bodied palate, moderately high carbonation, a bit too thick to be tongue cleaning. Thanks Clark!

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
From a 33cl bottle.
pours a hazy gold with a 1/4 inch snow white head. Persistent head and persistent lacing. Smell is fruity and yeasty. Hints of sweetness and spice.
Taste is much like the smell, spicy and sweet. Light hint of cinnamon apples. Sour and peppery as it finishes. Really smooth and oddly creamy (for a tripel) Really one of the nicest textures I’ve had in a tripel. This one does not reveal it’s strength in the body, though very flavorful. Watch out, it’ll sneak up on you.

Man,I liked the spicey nose from this.Has some sweet fruitiness to it but I guess that the yeast in this gives it a apricot/aromatic aroma.This is a little flatter in flavor as the spiciness is more subdued that I would have liked.Still a fine tripel.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Golden body with a touch of amber in it. Good size white head that left loads of lacing. Aroma of mandarins, spice and alcohol. Taste was soft and smooth, medium body, sweet but not overly so, and a light sweet alcoholic finish. This beer was easy to drink but at 9% you couldn’t quite have big session of them. A good pale ale ramped right up to the max?

750 ml corked and caged bottle pours a cloudy yellow orange with a nice off white head that leaves a sticky lacing in my glass. Fruity yeasty aroma of pears and apples. Sweet and malty fruity pear and tart apple flavors with a slight bubblegum yeasty taste. Medium-full body with a carbonated crisp mouthfeel, alcohol presence come out as it warms, finishes sweet, very nice.
