COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Editors note: Brewed by Ølfabrikken at Het Anker, Mechelen, Belgium. <br /><br /> A hoppy tripel brewed with pilsner malt, sugar and English and American hops and spiced with Thai lime leafs. The freshness from the lime leafs and the hops combined with high carbonation makes this uniquely refreshing and dangerously drinkable. Unpasteurized and unfiltered like all our beers. Only available on bottle.

FatPhil (9371) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - APR 16, 2014
750ml bottle (Pikkulintu, Helsinki) Bottled 2007, BB 2010, Drunk 2014
Simple fruity aromas, some interesting esters. Magical taste - I was literally like a sow with pheremones sprayed in front of her snout as soon as it got some in my mouth. Fruity, banana, orange. Gentle malts, sweetish and so mellow. A genuine 9/11 of wow, I’m flattened. Sweetish full paalte, nice carbonation stops it from being sticky. Marvelous full waves of esters through the back of the mouth. Later the aroma loses the aged aspects and becomes more mellow after the yeaster end of bottle is poured in. Better without yeast, only 8 in taste now. 0lfabrikken - we miss you!
