Bottle 33cl. Lovely tripel with the great Jopen bitterness in the aftertaste. Yellow/orange colour with a strong white top. Complex in all his flavours but it still invites you for another one when you finish it. Lovely beer.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle 33cl. Golden with a big white head. Malty nose and for some strange reason I believe this is the perfect match with asperges (must be because I’m living where they grew asperges). Nice rich taste, balanced and not sweet which you migt think when having a tripel. Medium length.
