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.

(33 cl bottle from Saveur Biere; Lot 442; BBD: April 2014) Pours an unclear pale, yellow with floaties and a big, white head. Good retention and lace. Aroma is somewhat yeasty and citrusy with a hint of pepper. No sign of the violet tea unfortunately. Medium body, oily texture, medium carbonation and a short and spicy finish. Taste resembles a tripel although with no trace of lemon or the tea promised. Aroma and taste are decent but the overall impression is disappointing given the appearance and the lack of the interesting adjunct.

Impression: earth, spice, oyster shell, seed bread, herbal noble hops, dusty basement must and cobwebs.

Airy phenolic head. Highly caramelized. Luscious mouth feel. Rich without weight. Effervescent, salty, suggestively smoky in the way of Gänstaller Steinbier. Full bodied, off-dry, woody, tart, tropical / juicy, filling. Thiriez house strain and rich malt caramelization.

Grzesiek79 (3680) - 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 (14894) - 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.

Bottle sample at a tasting at kerenmk’s place. Thanks Tom L. 7%. Cloudy pale yellow with a big frothy white head. Floral aroma, fruity, with yeast and mild hoppiness. Yeasty flavor, slightly spicy, with some floral hops, fruity esters, a bit of bread and a drier and slightly bitter finish. Medium-bodied. Not bad.
