330ml Bottle. It pours a cloudy orange amby body that has lots of large sediment with a white head that lasts a short time and then vanishes to leave moderate lacing. However (and this is a 1st for me) the carbonation of the beer then thickens the lacing into the head again. Its aroma is orange, malts and coriander. Its taste is fairly unremarkable, Sweet fruits and zestiness with a sweet bitter finish and the traditional Belgian smokiness. Id say this beers is on the better side of average but still none-the-less average.

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 :)

Nice golden colour. The beer is cloudy and not very foamy. The beer is tasty, has a nice bitternes and sweetness. It has a sourly touch, citrus fruits perhaps?

Si presenta dorata, il cappello di schiuma frizzantino e dura abbastanza a lungo. Al naso si notano spezie, lievito, agrumi. Al palato non affatto male, piuttosto dolce per una tripel, con leggere punte di frutta e spezie, buon bilanciamento del retrogusto amaro, che come detto meno presente rispetto ad altre birre simili. Corpo non molto rotondo, lalcool c e si sente. E una discreta tripel, a cui per manca il tocco in pi che altri birrifici sanno dare, ma essendo Leffe non ci si pu aspettare un capolavoro del suo genere.

0,33L bottle (from Wine of Galilee), BB 03.07.15. Pours hazy golden-amber with off-white head. The head stays for a moment. Aroma is sweet, bready, spices, caramel, alcohol. Flavor is sweet, bready, caramel, fruits, spices, malt. Finish is dry bitter and somewhat watery. Alcohol is noticeable, but not distracting. Overall: maybe not very typical as far as tripels go, but I quite like it.

Pours a bright copper with a thin white head. Rich yeasty aroma with hints of sweetness. Balanced bittersweet.

Marduk (3218) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JAN 23, 2015
330ml bottle. Pours out flat, not enough excitement for Belgian. Slightly hazy amber color. Tiny size, white head, disappears. Sweetish, bready, bit papery, malty aroma. Bready, malty, sweet, sugary taste. Alcohol is very well hidden behind this sugar. Tastes almost like raw, filtered Estonian kodulu. Sweet bready aftertaste. Smooth. Almost no carbonation. One of the weirdest Belgians for sure (and I dont know if its suppose to taste like that).

Pyrmir (3697) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - JAN 19, 2015
330 ml bottle during Brussels vacation. Golden with white head. Aroma sweet, malty, alcohol and light banana esters. Taste is similar and fairly simple, sweet malt, light yeast esters, alcohol with a sweet and boozy finish
