Golden, slightly hazy body, with minimal head. Aroma is sweet (bubblegum), fruity (apricot) and slightly spicy/yeasty. Flavor is sweet bubblegum, spice, but still fairly well balanced. The alcohol is nicly warming for the most part, but it asserts itself at the swallow, causing a moderate burn.

Christian (11423) - Odense, DENMARK - MAR 14, 2013
Golden with a small white head. Yeasty aroma with an earthy touch. Dryish yeasty flavour with notable alcohol. Technically well balanced with well hidden alcohol, it’s just not my kind of beer

thewolf (11314) - Kolding, DENMARK - MAY 12, 2008
Bottle, bought @ YNWA, Kolding.
Pours clear golden with a small very white creamy head - low duration. Aroma is pleasantly bready malts, some yeast and lightly vinious. A bit of exotic fruit notes as well. Quite high carbonation, but still quite creamy palate. Super sweetness, and very soft feel. Lots of chewy malts, light fruitiness and well-balanced alcohol. Good yeast tones as well.

Bottle on the train between Brussels and Antwerpen, from Carrefour at Midi station, 26/09/13. Lightly hazed golden with a moderate white head. Lacing ensues. Nose is fruit loaf, bready malts, bitter orange, caramel, sugars. Taste comprises dark fruits, sugars, bitter orange notes, sweet bready malt, booze, caramel. Full bodied, moderate carbonation with a little too much spritz for an 11% offering. Pretty basic tripel, too sweet overall but palatable.
