UPDATED: APR 21, 2012 Belgian strong ale con i fiocchi!!grandi aspettative che non sono rimaste per niente deluse!si presenta molto schiumosa e ricca di sedimento(davvero una grande quantità) che accompagna tutta la degustazione e fa apprezzare l’artigianalità di questa birra!il gusto è molto dolce e l’amaro si avverte in punta,nel complesso il retrogusto caramellato è duraturo e piacevole!

Bottle from De Bierkonig in Amsterdam. Pours a slightly murky yet effervescent dark golden, humongous frothy head. Yeast sediment floaties can be seen. Aroma is nice and reminiscent of a solid Belgian golden a la Duvel. Tart, yeast, spice, orange marmalade, hint of champagne. Very nice Well balanced and subtle. Soft and fizzy on the palate. Taste is on-point and full of more yeasty spice, fruits, and a slight hop bitterness. Sticky bittersweet finish with a hint of alcohol burn. Better than expected based on price and other reviews. A nice cross between a Belgian golden and a tripel.

A ’golden blond’ triple with a firm white head. The yeast is all over the glass due to the carbonation and doesn’t come to rest. The aroma brings mainly alcohol and citrus from the hop. Pretty sweet but surprisingly smooth mouth feel. Some banana. The sweetness sticks in the finish. A very well done triple.

Rating #804 - January 13, 2014 - Post work 33cl beer bottle from Coop - Trying to get through this review without a Robespierre joke. Clear golden pour with a bubbly white head that fades to a ring. Aroma is booze, grassy hops, and yeast. Palate is initially sweet and boozy, prolonged sourness, and lots of cool sweet citrus, grassy bitterness. Quite nice for a sourish tripel. Pity is treason. Damnit.
