COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Confidence in the glass reveals a pale yellow slightly disturbed that covers a white foam and airy. This admission escape the smell of lemon fruit and cereal. We then discovered a powerful entry in the mouth, which has a malty bitterness tickle the tongue. Flavors of malt and hops come together while the purple is slowly feeling, which is not surprising, because the violet tea into its composition. Aroma which is not invasive, but provides a slight coolness to this strong beer. The finish is relatively smooth with flavors of violets that persist after the end of the glass. Confidence dévoile dans le verre une robe jaune pâle légèrement troublée qui se couvre d’une mousse blanche et aérée. De cet aveu s’échappent des odeurs fruitées de citron et de céréales. On découvre ensuite une entrée en bouche puissante, où une amertume maltée vient titiller la langue. Des saveurs de malt et de houblon se rencontrent tandis que la violette se fait doucement ressentir,ce qui n’a rien d’étonnant, car du thé à la violette entre dans sa composition. Un arôme qui n’a rien d’envahissant, mais qui apporte une légère fraîcheur à cette bière forte. La fin de bouche est relativement douce avec des saveurs de violette qui perdurent après la fin du verre.

TAR (2651) - Marshall (Asheville area), North Carolina, USA - MAY 22, 2016
Bottle purchased at Thiriez in August 2014 and consumed the same week: Burnished gold. Brooding creamy white head. Extraordinarily polished aroma of pecan, perfumey Alsatian hops, black tea, lemon, dusty yeast, pepper, licorice, and minerals. Fluffy and lush carbonation. Strikingly bouncy and leathery pecan-skin malt cradles a bracing dose of minerals as it dovetails with supple fruity esters. Luscious saliva-inducing malt boasts fat melanoidins which treat the mouth to a sublime sensory experience. Intricate subtleties exude from the pils malt as well, including fresh hay notes which distribute a wealth of dusty textures across the palate, a telltale sign of masterful mashing. Dusty and candyish yeast imparts staggering depth as well as plenty of rusticity, as brilliantly measured phenols step in to sharpen the immaculate cleanness. Elegantly incorporated hazelnut, fallen leaves and earthy chocolate notes reveal an understated malt complexity and autumnal element that enhances the rusticity. Sizzling lemony hop acids flourish in the sophisticatedly hopcentric finish alongside licorice and pepper notes. Oh, the fruitlessness of assigning mere descriptors to a soulful, inspired work of art. This is one of very few beers that’s ever evoked the purity I’ve found in Gänstaller Bräu’s lagers, and I’ll leave it at that.

Grzesiek79 (3889) - Radom, POLAND - MAY 24, 2014
Bardzo dobre tresciwe i pieknie wygladajace piwo z biala puszysta spora piana do tego trwala. Slodowoscia delikatna chmielowoscia, srednim wysyceniem. To ekologiczne piwo naprawde smaczne bylo. Tresciwe a alkohol nie wyczuwalny. Swieze i cudne. Podobne i jakosciowo zblizone do najlepszych tripli belgijskich. Ladna artystyczna etykieta

TBone (15911) - Pori, FINLAND - APR 30, 2014
Bottle 330ml (Saveur)
Hazy yellow color, good white head ... the bottle was gushing a bit. Dry Belgian yeasty aroma with some lime and spices. A bit like witbier. Medium-bodied. Lychee, citrus, hops, apple in the flavor. Foamy mouthfeel. Some bitterness and alcohol. Without so active carbonation this one could be quite nice one.
