This is a strong blonde beer, full of character with tertiary fermentation in the bottle yet still very accessible. Alc. 8% vol. Taste: The traditional Grimbergen recipe is enriched here trough the use of aromatic hops, which gives the beer its refined bitterness and hoppy character. The result is a refreshingly strong blonde beer.

Helder geel bier met veel schuim. Smaak is hoppig bitter, krachtig en licht zoet, maar toch fris. Smaak blijft lang hangen. Dit is voor mij de beste Grimbergen tot nu toe.

MrHangover (2991) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - FEB 13, 2015
Bottle. Pours a clear golden beer with a medium sized, white head on top. Aroma is grainy, yeasty, fairly boring. Flavor is medium sweet, slight boozy, big malty sweetness. Typical tripel, textbook but boring. Meh.

UPDATED: JAN 30, 2015 0,33L bottle (from Wine of Galilee), BB 21.12.15. Pours clear golden wtih white head. The head stays. Aroma is fresh fruits, spices, yeast. Flavor is sweet and bitter, fresh fruits, spices, medicinal notes. Carbonation is high. Overall: very simple, but ok as long as it’s cold. Once it’s starts to warm up, the booze starts to kick in.

bonkiedeaap (363) - Leerdam, NETHERLANDS - NOV 28, 2014
Bottle from de Bierschuur in Poppel. Clear, golden beer in which little gems provide a creamy white head. Complex earthy aromas complemented by fresh notes of green apple. The taste is mostly dry and fruity notes of citrus and mandarin. The finish is very nice and malty.

Un peu comme la Duvel. Même couleur dorée, large col de mousse quand on la verse, goût assez proche. Bonne et rafraîchissante!
