From bottle, pours with hazy golden hue and creamy head. Sweet nose and sharp taste make the high ABV less noticable.

Aroma: Bitter, yeast, sweet, honey, flowers. Appearance: Turbid amber/golden beer with a white foamy head. Taste/Palate: Sweet, watery, honey, flowers, carbonation, slightly bitter hops. Overall: This beer is simple, not trying to do anything special. Tastes like a white beer with a slightly flower taste.

Lekker, voor een tripel niet zo zwaar, drinkt snel weg. Toch 8,5% ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Hazy golden beer, small white head. Nose is belgian yeast, some hop notes, malt. Flavor is some sweetness and malt, a nice hit of yeast, some hops in the dry finish. Hides the booze remarkably well. The overall impression is sweet and yeasty. OK.

This used to be quite a good abbey beer, but InBev destroyed it with cheap malts and too much sugar, as it did with quite a few Belgian beers. It’s now being brewed in the industrial Stella Artois plant in Leuven with no love and bad ingredients. A real shame. The kitschy label has the gall to declare that this is a traditional beer, brewed since 1240. Hoppy puke, that’s what this has been degraded to.

Butelka, warka do 03/09/16. Wysoka, ladna biala piana, zostajaca na szkle, stosunkowo szybko opadajaca do obraczki i milimetrowej doslownie warstewki. Kolor nieco przyszarzony miod. Aromaty triplowe - slody, drozdze, zbozowosc, przyprawowosc (gozdziki, troche kolendry, wzdech), owoce a la brzoskwinia, slad banana. Po ogrzaniu sie - przyprawy zaczynaja byc malo sympatyczne, jakas nalecialosc niemila zaczyna byc wyczuwalna. W smaku jest to co w aromacie, niemniej z nalecialoscia niezbyt sympatyczna jakiegos takie piernika, chyba kwestia jakichs ciezkich przypraw dajacych goryczke? jest tez dosc orzezwiajaca kwaskowatosc, troche slodkosci, troche goryczki. Wysycenie srednie. Gdyby nie ten dziwny piernik byloby bardzo dobrze, ale dobre jest i tak, z minusem za kolendre. Posmaki dosc wytrawne, cala slodycz i kwaskowatosc sie ulatnia, zostaje chmielowa nalecialosc - to akurat mila cecha. Lekkie w piciu. PS: szocik z drozdzy calkiem smaczny :)
