teorn88 (1916) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 25, 2013
33cl bottle from A Tutta Birra. Light golden hazy coloured. White lasting head. Aroma is very yeasty and spicy. Lots of alcahol in the flavour. Some sweet and malty accents. A little too bland in the aftertaste.

Bottle at Sofitel Amsterdam. Nothing too far outside most Tripels, probably a touch sweeter than most but I like it and it is well rounded. Good balance outside of the sweetness which works well. Nice stuff

Fles gedeeld met peltmeister. Amberkleurig bier, licht troebel. Aroma is fruitig. Smaak is tikkeltje wrang, licht bitter. Mooi supermarkt biertje.

Butelka 0.3L. Mętne, pomarańczowe z dużą ilością pływających brzydkich, sporej wielkości drobin. Bardzo bujna, biała piana, redukująca się w umiarkowanym tempie. Po otwarciu piwo wyskoczyło z butelki. Aromaty jak połączenie weizena z klasztornym belgisjkim i kwaśnymi owocami. Banan, kwasowość, estry owocowe i trochę fenolowo-przyprawowych aromatów w tym goździki. W smaku bardziej słodkie niż kwaśne, albedo cytrynym miodowe, owocowe, alkohol wyczuwalny. Finisz półwytrawny o średniej do krótkiej goryczce lekko alkoholowej. Nagazowanie bardzo delikatne, pewnie wiekszośc uciekła po otwarciu i przelewaniu. Całkiem przyjemne piwo, Gushing mnie zdziwił a w połączeniu z kwaśnymi nutami wydawało się zepsute. Jednak w smaku raczej żadnej infekcji nie było.

Erzengel (1912) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - DEC 3, 2013
UPDATED: DEC 21, 2013 Die Farbe ist hell wie ein Weizen, schöner weißer Schaum. Das Bier ist schön vollmundig-weich, die 8,5% nicht zu schmecken. Schön süffig-angenehm. Leicht scharf und dabei hefig. Etwas muffig in langem Nachgeschmack, aber nicht störend. Gutes abgewogenes Bier!!
Test vom 4.2.2008, Gebinde: Glasflasche Noten: 12,12,12,13,12,13 - 12,55

Taste is quite close to the Leffe Royal, only less balanced. Fruity, sweet, does really well in summer.

edpeg (793) - Berlin, GERMANY - NOV 27, 2013
Dark orange cloudy body with yeast sediment and white lacing head. Aroma is oranges, grass, wheat, raisin and leather. Palate is slick , soft , oily and smooth. Carbonation is fizzy and soft. Taste is slightly bitter dry and fruity tart, with warming sensation from ABV 8,5%. Finish is fruity, yeasty and warming. Enjoyable straightforward Tripel.

bit of a gusher ( just like my st omache gushes when i think about leffe ) pours fuzzy blonde, no real foam smell is yukkie sweetness from sugar and malts too high carbo . awfull grainy-sugary taste. its as awfull as i think leffe is . while usualy, leffe is just bad, but somewhat drinkable . this is pure crap . i can finaly say my hate for leffe now has an honoust example of how freakin bad it is .

knutole (28) - Rhineland-Palatinate, GERMANY - NOV 19, 2013
sweet smell and it reminds me of orange, koriander (is that the correct english word?), light sour, typical for such a beer with high original gravity, nice white foam, stays quite long on top of the beer, carbonisation medium-high; taste: koriander, very sweet, you can clearly taste the high alcohol beverage, creamy mouthfeel, overall a nice typical belgian beer
