Commissioned by Willems in Grobbendonk and brewed by Kerkom at the time. Off-white, creamy, sticky but not very stable head leaving pretty lacing on the edge of the glass, colour of ’old gold’, with a suspension of minuscule yeast particles. Perfumey aroma of exotic fruits and flowery hops, banana, vanilla, apple peel, unripe peach, wet straw, some orange and young ’jenever’. Mineral-like and a bit neutral at first with restrained fruits (green, sour apple), fresh but subtle citrus touch, light malty middle, a slight hint of H2S and a lightly peppery hop bitterness in the finish, bit phenolic as well, alcohol also noticeable and body a bit thin. I preferred the aroma well over the taste.

An average trippel. Apparently a one time brew, so it’ll run out eventually. Difficult to recommend.

bierkoning (10204) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - APR 19, 2010
2009 corked bottle. Orange blonde color. Medium to full bodied. Floral yeasty, slightly herbal flavor with hints of white pepper, pineapple and tangerine. Some warming alcohol. The aroma is lacking a bit, but the flavor is OK.

TaxiDriver (1472) - Stadland, GERMANY - MAR 30, 2010
Bottle. The aroma is very fruity, some vanilla, light malty, nice one. The head is small, white and fizzy with a short duration. The body is cloudy and orange. The taste is fruity, light bitter and with a weak metallic aftertaste. The body is medium strong with a normal carbonation and light creamy.

2009 version brewed @...? Head reduced in secs to white rim; hazy pale-orange beer. Very alcoholic nose, spicy-yeasty aromas, raw bark. Very earthy, quite-bitterish flavour, ending slightly sweeter. Aromatic hops definitely present. Again bark, root spices. Prickly palate, not fizzy. Medium bodied; alcoholwarming. Very nice tripel indeed. Thanks, Stef!

BartC (726) - Lichtaart, BELGIUM - FEB 17, 2009
Blond beer with a very coarse head. Very malty beer with notes of caramel sweetness that disappears and is replaced by some soft bitterness in the aftertaste..

Defreni (2602) - Husum, DENMARK - JUL 25, 2008
Flaske. Årgang 2006. Drukket umiddelbart efter Fin du Monde. Ikke helt deroppe af. Mere uklar og lidt rødligere. Meget mere frugt i duften og smagen. Faktisk overraskende frugtet men på en yderst behagelig måde. Igen en super øl.

omhper (19372) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - JUL 15, 2008
Bottled at Petalax Beer Festival. Hazy deep golden, brief lively head. Yeasty nose with some orange and vanilla. Sweet and medium-full bodied with arousing canteloupe-like estery alcohol, creamy sweet maltiness and spun sugar. There are notes of mustard seeds and the malt turns grainy and chewy. Finishes somewhat sticky with with head held high in elegance.

Bottled. Golden colour, small white head. Stuff floating around. Aroma is acidic fruits, coriander, some spices and yeast along with caramel malts. Flavour is wheat, yeast, caramel malts, some grass as well as yeast and spices. A rather acidic/sour tripel.
