A bitter-sweet taste, the alcohol is very well hidden for a beer that has 11%. But a bit to sweet.

Golden with a slight haze and small head. Virtually no aroma: perhaps a hint of cheese. The flavour is champagne, followed by a pleasant alcoholic sweetness. A hint of bitterness in the aftertaste. Strong stuff! My opinion of this rose as I sipped it...

Hyvä mutta makuuni liian makea olut. Tämä olut on makein vastaani tullut trappist olut.

roder60 (1285) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 29, 2006
Pours a light pale clear yellow with fizzy white head. Aroma is kinda champagney, sour, alcohol, and peach. Flavor is pretty strong and alcoholish, warming sensation as it goes down, slight caramel, and some sour tartness. Overall, not impressive.

33cL bottle. The label says triple, but WOW the 11% ABV is noticeable. Iit poured a pale, clear yellow with a white, foamy head. Average beer that packs a punch.

Hmm, shouldn’t this actually be categorized as an abbey triple? Anyway: Clear golden color with a foamy white head. Vanilla is strong in aroma and flavor. I didn’t catch much citrus, but sugar and alcohol were both strong and bit out of balance. Mildly dry, but more hops would be nice. If this isn’t a tripel, then it’s a golden barley wine for those who like to taste honey and alcohol.

Bottle. Low white head. Hazy yellow body. Lemon aroma nice crispy and sharp. Bittersweer or actually quite sweet plus dominated by the high alcohol percentage.
