Bière ambrée, d’inspiration belge, aux parfums de fruits exotiques et d’épices. Au goût s’entremélent fruits, levure, épices et houblon noble, le tout supporté par une chaleur d’alcool réconfortante. This page is for the version which is not aged in oak and is not fermented with brettanomyces.

sebletitje (6582) - Enghien, BELGIUM - JUN 29, 2014
Draft @ ML Fontainas, Québec festival. Léger orangée, col crémeux blanc-cassé. Arôme est fruité, léger ester avec un bouquet levure très belge et un appui nasal de houblons nobles. Palais au profil typiquement belge surtout au niveau de l’usage de la levure. Léger côté ester avec un petit sucré collant aux lèvres. Pointe herbacée et une amertume modérée aux notes nobles. Pointe d’abricot, sec et herbacé sur un malté pâle et pils?

fiulijn (14290) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 17, 2014
Draught at St. Augustine’s, Vancouver
Hazy dark blond color with creamy head. Delicate aroma dominated by fruity esters, persistent; grapes and apples. Smooth and round mouthfeel; pale malts, mouth wrapping, with moderate sweetness and a good portion of fruits and spices; correct bitterness and warming alcohol feeling.
For once, not a sterile American imitation of Belgian ales, but an original interpretation, with character.

fhoublon (312) - Lachine, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 1, 2014
Dégustée (en fût) le 1er mars 2014 lors de la Cuvée d’Hiver 2014 à Montréal. Bière dorée limpide. Très peu effervescente. Assez forte, assez sucrée, peu amère. Saveur de miel, de céréales, de sucre. Très bonne, se boit bien, rafraîchissante. Alcool bien présent mais ne ressort pas trop.

dnicolaescu (682) - Chișinău, MOLDOVA - MAY 18, 2014
BOTTLE 375ML from bunget. Thanks, Sergio! Look: hazy golden-amber with yeast flakes and a big white creamy head. Aroma: blond fruit - apricot, peach, pine-apple, spicy yeast, some alcohol (quite rough) and some kind of oily fresh bread crust. Taste: nice and mellow, fruit sweetness (grapes?), alcoholic, some phenolic spice, minimal bitterness.

A very nice tripel, soft and mellow, on the sweet side. A tad too much alcohol, i guess.

UXO (111) - CANADA - MAY 2, 2014
Pours a clear amber gold with a fat finger of loose white head diminishing gradually to a medium cap and moderate lacing. Nose is characteristic Belgian yeast, bananas and cloves, spiciness, orange peel, and caramel malt. Taste follows the nose completely, with a (surprisingly) little alcohol finish. Mouth feel is full bodied but sustained by persistent pleasant carbonation and a sweet but not sickly finish. A very pleasant abbey tripel.
