It’s a great beer for people who love this type of beer. You taste the yeast so strongly. To my opinion, it’s an unfinished beer. There is a caramelized flavour with bitter tones. It’s a good beer, just not for me.

Piana obfita, początkowo ładna szybko opada i przybiera mydlany charakter, pozostaje w postaci chmurek. Barwa złota, prawie klarowna, trunek ładnie "bąbelkuje" w szkle. W zapachu z butelki nieco miodowe nuty, po przelaniu jednak szybko ustępują i mamy już typowe estry i fenole wzbogacone i lekką dzikość. Nie jest to bardzo intensywny, ale dość przyjemny aromat. W smaku najpierw delikatna kwaskowość kompotu z jabłek i słodycz owoców kandyzowanych, brzoskwinie, jasne winogrono, białe półsłodkie wino. Jest też nie do końca przyjemna słodowość - trochę eurolagerowa, trochę biszkoptowo-landrynkowa... W afterteasie nuty siana, bardzo delikatna dzikość, lekka pikantność. Goryczka nieduża, ziołowa. Wysycenie wysokie, szampańskie, musujące w ustach. Lekko wyklejające. ...niby fajny aromat z dzikimi niuansami, których jednak w smaku praktycznie brak. Poza tym podstawa słodowa przypomina tą znaną z koncerniaków... Reasumując - dobre, aczkolwiek bardzo przeciętne piwo, dość pijalne pomimo sporego woltażu.

Bottle from Carrefour. The alcohol seems to be strong to cover most of the flavours. What I tasted is bitter.

Somewhat murky oak colored beer with a thick off white head. Strong nose of unbaked dough, mandarin orange, and musky yeast. Flavor is a nice balance of caramel malt and sourness with a good balance between the two. A slight tangy bitterness lingers into the aftertaste and cuts through the sweet and sour. Good beer.

Franckg (1282) - Trois-Rivières, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 3, 2015
Robe dorée claire surmonté d’un gigantesque col de mousse blanc très tenace. Dentelle épaisse et tenace. Arômes de levures, grains maltés, miel, zeste d’orange, citron et poivre. Très loin des tripel de haut calibre. Se rapproche plus d’une blonde belge forte. En bouche, levures, malt franc et sucre résiduel. Également, pain, orange, léger clou de girofle et miel. Pas ce à quoi je m’attend d’une tripel. Pas d’alcool, épices quasi inexistantes. L’emphase est mise sur les levures et le malt. Bofff

Nice Abbey Tripel. Pours a thick glass of orange beer. Nice yeasty aroma with great thick texture.

Flanfl (629) - Lyon, FRANCE - NOV 12, 2015
Deep golden body big white head. Aroma of bread, fruits, might caramel notes and belgian yeast. Sweet malt flavours, slightly warm, bread and dried fruits, a bit honey like. Medium-thin body, too thin for a tripel. Sweet and slightly warm medium finish. Medium carbo. Laking body for the style. Ok as a golden ale. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Lonick (1588) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - OCT 21, 2015
Bottle, (bar in Paris). Pours a golden orange colour with a big white head which lasted till the end. Citrus fruits on the nose, which stays with the taste, bitter and hoppy on the finish but with a big citrus hit. Does not drink like a beer this strong.
