Pours with a nice tight head. Fruity pear aroma. Great balance between hops and malt. Tart. High carbonation. Nice hop flavor. Great beer.

One of the new generation of ’tripel hop’ beers in Belgium, holding the middle between the old, family brewer’s tripel and the new IPAs micro breweries come up with these days. A great success for Lefebvre and hopped with no less than five hop varieties (so technically I shouldn’t have used the term "tripel" hop, but you get my drift). A golden blonde beer with a thick, stable, cream white head and fruity main character adorned with yeasty spiciness and a long, complex, grassy, herbal, peppery hoppiness, not quite as bitter as in a real IPA, but still. The deposit is supposed to be served separately in a small liquor glass, as is sometimes done with oude geuze or Orval.

Smells of cherries and wood, very unique earthy aroma! Imported by a college station, TX company=random GIG EM! The intricate strong fruit and subtle hops with mellow malts makes this awesome!

ForlornHope (36) - Hampshire, ENGLAND - AUG 16, 2014
Aroma is bready and yeast. Any hop aroma is very subtle and earthy. Pours with a massive white head that stays the distance. Taste is again mainly bready and sweet, with little balance. Thin palate. I’m not sure I get this beer at all. I don’t know where the hopping is, perhaps I was expecting something different. Distinctly underwhelming.

Een heel lekker bier met een uitgesproken, volle smaak. Dit drink ik tegenwoordig regelmatig

venom666 (329) - Alicante, SPAIN - JUL 30, 2014
UPDATED: AUG 1, 2014 Hazy golden color with creamy white long lasting head. High carbonation. Aroma of floral hops, fruits and citrus. Taste is lemony, with clear hop hints and sweet malts. Very balanced and well hidden alcohol. Aftertaste is bitter.

crlnts (275) - SWITZERLAND - JUL 17, 2014
Clear golden, slightly hazy. Nice white head, creamy. Aroma is dry white wine, yeasts, hops. Syrupy sweet at first. Lingering average bitterness. Alcohol warmth. Hops are overshadowed by sweetness. Not my favorite hoppy belgian ale.

Calisky (601) - ALSACE, FRANCE - JUL 16, 2014
Couleur dorée trouble, bonne mousse blanche. Bon nez houblonné, notes sucrée (miel, agrumes). Gout houblonné, levures, notes de miel et d’agrumes, amertume en fin de bouche. Bière douce en bouche malgrés taux d’alcool, pas mal!

Couleur jaune trouble avec une mousse blanche assez épaisse; odeurs fruitée; goût un peu sucré avec une finale moyennement amère; l’alcool ressort un peu trop
