Lleugera i un puntet llupolada. Fŗcil de beure, molt refrescant. Casi sembla mťs una saison.

UPDATED: FEB 14, 2012 (750ml ) . I finished of a 750ml in ten minutes ,cause this stuff was very classy ,soft and surprisingly hoppy , with a superb background of doughy yeastiness. Wish I had a few more 750mls of this one to booze my way through , such a pleasant texture .

Nice beer with a white foamy head. In bottle is well carbonated.
While youíre drinking it, after a few drinks of it it seems to be a little bit sickening, maybe due to its strong bitterness that covers all others flavors.

Belgian strong ale dal colore giallo pallido, un pÚ atipico. Schiuma di media persistenza. Amaro non dominante ma compare subito dopo il primo sorso. Birra nel complesso buona, ma non straordinaria.

Bottle from bateau de nuit. Gold pour, but itís a real snowstorm in there, tons of floaties; covered by a white head. Aroma is quite fruity, lots of pear and pineapple with slight piney resinous notes. Taste is fruity as well, more pear and pineapple, quite sweet on the palate. Decent beer.

Pours a cloudy lemon yellow in the glass with a very thick foamy head. Nice "dry" hoppy aroma along with the typical "Belgian" yeast nose. Nice dry hoppy bitterness followed by a slight oily mouthfeel. Overall, itís really nice. Glad to have sampled it!

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
UPDATED: NOV 24, 2013 75cl bottle. Hazy yellow with a decent white head.
NOSE : starting with a kick of fresh aromas of citrus and herbs. Some pear. Malt aromas are in the background reminding those of a ginger cookie and all grains bread. Some acacia honey further on. Strong yeast aromas reminding me a soap.
SIP : medium body with decent carbonation. Creamy texture. The beer is yeasty with a good bite of hops. It start off with a layer of grains and quickly develops strong yeast character. Hops donít wait till the finish and start with a lemon juice like bite adding some delicate acidic flavors. Fruity notes are well present now. Further on it reveals more bitterness from hops. Pepper and herbal notes. The finish is yeast and hop nuances, good bitterness and delicate lactic. It leaves a pleasant herbal frothiness on the tongue.
OVERALL : this beer can hide the alcohol. Great drink ability. Itís not your regular tripel but it has a good mouth feel and reasonable hop character.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Pours a hazy gold-white with a lot of sediment and a high, long-lasting, white head and lace. Nose is herbal -- rosemary and thyme -- and citrus, with a touch of skunk. Very odd tasting; itís hoppy like an IPA but there is an underlying candied, malic sweetness. Itís as if someone tossed an American IPA and hard cider together. The finish is bitter, and lasts for a long time. Iím going to give this a point or two just because itís something _different_ from Belgium.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
(75cl bottle best by 2013) very pale white color with a medium white head and mostly edge bubbles. Nose of sweet raisin, grain, muted and lightly spicy. Taste of wheat, light spice, coriander, and white pepper. Light in flavor and light in linger. Some stale grain lingers on the palate.
