COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

harrisoni (13564) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - APR 27, 2012
Bottle at La Trappiste Canterbury. Brilliant bright gold colour lasting white head and lots of carbonation. Some tripel character in that it has tangerine and some peachy esters. Quite dry. But its mote like a strong belgian blond. Which i quite like. Yes drinkable as hell and i quite like it. It put a smile on my face

TBone (12538) - Pori, FINLAND - APR 21, 2008
Bottled (BB 05/2009)
Clear yellow golden color, huge cloudy head, lace, lively beer. Sweetish fruity-yeast aroma (mango and honey) with some hints of rubber. When it warms up, also some metal. Fruity flavor with grassy-woody hops and quite strong alcohol presence. Long warming spicey and alcoholic aftertaste. Solid, although standard tripel. I suppose that ageing doesn’t improve this one.
