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.

fhoublon (316) - Lachine, Quebec, - 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.

Alengrin (3019) - BELGIUM - MAY 17, 2015
Barrel aged triple from a 60 cl bottle, at Chez Moeder Lambic Original. Thick, very creamy and lacing, light yellowish white, dense head, colour clear orange blonde, hazy with deposit. Pleasant and elegant aroma of orange juice, caramel, ginger, banana, pink grapefruit, white wine, white bread, peach, honey, banana and whisky. Fruity, rounded onset, pineapple, banana and mango, medium carbo, soft bready and slightly caramelly maltiness, spicy yeasty accents, citrussy, lightly spicy hop bitterness in the finish but gentle and soft, yeasty accents lingering along with woody tannins and brandy- or whisky-like, warming but gentle alcohol. Well balanced, flawless and interesting tripel, in fact among the better ones in this style I had so far.

Helsdon (260) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 7, 2015
A finger of white head, golden color in this poorly lit bar. Not much in the way of smell, but it’s probably my nosr today. Soft malts and cream taste, general sweetness and little oak harsh on the finish.

Lilja (2033) - Malmö, SWEDEN - MAY 1, 2015
Ölföreningen 2015. Smak och doft av belgisk jäst, aprikos, päron och äpple. Stor sötma och kropp, fina smaker, välbalanserad, fin beska. Riktigt gott!

dEnk (4180) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - APR 17, 2015
Bottle @ WWT. Aroma has some fruit, malt, herbal and spicy notes, also swamp. Flavour is malty peppery fruity notes. Okay, but a bit weird.

luttonm (2909) - Seattle, Washington, USA - APR 6, 2015
At bottleshare in Seattle. Rich orange, white soapy head. Dense banana, clove, creamy body. Belgian strong ale, lots of alc. Odd carbonation. Grew on me.

Vignale (2414) - Malmö, SWEDEN - MAR 23, 2015
Flaska från Saveur-bier, drucken med ölföreningen. Gyllenfärgad, champagnelikande utseende. En riktigt trevlig trippel, stor kropp, lätt munkänsla, väldigt välbalanserad utan störande sötma eller alkohol med fina söta smaker av äpple och päron men torrare avslutning. Riktigt gott.

aumax1 (285) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 21, 2015
Bouteille de 600ml d’ambré. Arôme d’écorce d’orange de miel. Au gout c’est puissant pour commencer ensuite vient des notes de fruit, de malt et un équilibre de sucre.

thebeertourist (5072) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAR 21, 2015
On tap at Erzbierschof Black Rider, Zurich. Clear, deep golden with a medium head. Fruity, a bit alcoholic nose, hints of herbs, banana. Semi-sweet, good fruit, hints of marcipane. A decent tripel.

King_Alex_II (442) - SWITZERLAND - MAR 16, 2015
Golden clear color with little foam. The smell is yeasty and a bit banana like. The taste is boozy and sweet. Banana notes and a creaminess that would turn some whipped cream jealous. A little spicey and a fine carbonation that are both a little overaggressive on the first sip.

SinH4 (744) - SWITZERLAND - MAR 16, 2015
Very golden color with white head. Banana, spices, alcohol, but not too much. More bananas and spices, fruity light feeling, a bit boozy as well, but not too much. Damn creamy mouthfeel and easy to drink for this ABV. Good!
