750 ml bottle shared with Tmoney99 and wihorock. Pours a slightly hazy golden color with a medium sized off white head that lasts. The aroma and flavor have sweet malts, honey, some Belgian yeast, mild spices, a nice general fruity character, with light floral notes and mild bitterness to the finish. No sign of the abv. Better than I expected it would be, still it’s a tripel and they aren’t my favorite.

tmoreau (3150) - Lombard, Illinois, USA - NOV 26, 2015
Shared 750 ml. bottle poured to snifters, showing a cloudy, orangey gold color, with a frothy layer of white head foam that reduced to a persistent, bubbly ring and film, and dots & dashes of lacing. The nose was peach, with a bit of citrus & peel, smooth malt, light spice, and some sweetness. Medium+ bodied with lively carbonation that conveyed a rather hot booziness combined with a lingering, earthy & rind-like astringency, tempered thankfully by some sweetness to the finish. A bit of a rough finale.

kraddel (4989) - some beerplace, BELGIUM - NOV 16, 2015
At horecabeurs 2015. Pours unclear blonde, good white head. Smell os malty, remotely bitter. Taste is very bitter - on the unbalanced, extreme side -with no malty or aromatic back to sustain it. Please, don’t call this an IPA, malheur...

JorisPPattyn (8799) - Ursel, BELGIUM - NOV 13, 2015
Towering, lightly yellow dense head, over very well-carbonated clear golden beer; shards of lace. Alcohol, white candi sugar, but also fine garden herbs, bit citrus. BItterish to bitter, again citrus; quite hoppy, bit grassy. Attenuation and dryness again pointing towards white candi sugar. Dry, spritzy, medium bodied, alcoholwarming. Not bad, hoppier than some.

Yellow pour with big fluffy white head. floral citrus aroma, some yeast and bread. Flavor is similar. Tone down the carbonation and this would be very good.

ChainGangGuy (4600) - Woodstock, Georgia, USA - NOV 4, 2015
Appearance: Slips out a lightly clouded, pale dark golden body with a couple inches of airy, fluffy white froth.

Smell: Pale malts, bready and with a thin hint of honey dosed with a lightly earthy yeastiness and Noble-esque hoppy notes of floral perfume, orange marmalade and herbaceous spiciness.

Taste: A lightly bready pale maltiness with a sweet lick of honey to it and pinch of yeast-riddled bread dough. Floral, citrusy (orange peel) and just lightly grassy. Encroaching white peppercorn spiciness. Small splash of apple juice. All in all, it’s not overtly bitter. Drying, sprightly finish seeing a touch of alcohol warmth and a continued citrusy fruitiness.

Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied. In line with the other Malheurs, it’s quite crisp and carbonated for a rather lively mouthfeel.

Overall: I quite enjoyed it, though, for others, they may be a bit disappointed it doesn’t really deliver a typical IPA-like punch.

Rubin77 (326) - Bratislava, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - OCT 24, 2015
F: white long lasting. C: hazy golden, opaque. A: orange/apple peels, banana, honey, sweet malt, yeasty, hint of coriander, biscuit/vanilla. T: bottle 0,75l from Poperinge beer festival, on the bottle is written original Belgian ale so I don’t take it as an IPA, malty, huge grassy, floral decent bitterness, spicy, coriander, banana, cloves, yeasty, peppery, orange peels, sweet but for me well balanced good strong Belgian ale that emphases more hoppy tones with good hidden 10% ABV, worth to try.

ElManana (1307) - Scheldewindeke, BELGIUM - AUG 28, 2015
Bottle at Gents Bierfestival. If they woul dnot market this as an IPA, this might receive a higher score. Soapy, grassy, too sweet, very lively, too lively even, herbal. Horrible for an IPA, ok for a Belgian strong.
