750ml. Pours a clear golden/orange w/ a large (soap?) bubble head, can’t be piled high above the glass :( Simple thin flavors of yeast, bubblegum, mild hops, and alcohol. Very enjoyable in the simplicity, hovering slightly above mediocrity.

Bottle @ home. 3 years old. Clear amber with a small white head. Aroma is malty and bready, with some biscuits, slightly phenolic with notes of almond, and somewhat metallic . The ester are gone and the malty notes are a bit dull due to the extended cellaring. Taste is sweet, with malt, white biscuits, honey, almonds and strawberries. The taste has evolved more gracefully with some nice esters remaining. Finish has apricots, honey and earth.

The Etruscan (629) - Tuscany, ITALY - AUG 12, 2016
White weak head. Dark amber colour. Aroma is malty, fruity with pear, biscuits and light caramel and alcohol notes. Flavor is malty too with fruity (apricot and light dried fruits) with candy and alcohol tones, ending in a balanced finish. Medium to full bodied.

Bottle. Pours clear golden with lazing white head. Aroma is light sweet, malty with bread and biscuit, some straw and slightly spicy. Taste is dry with light malt, bread and biscuit yet spicy with hints of coriander. Easy drinking tripel with a dry finish.

bobroman (847) - Torun, POLAND - JUL 5, 2016
Tasted on 27.06.16. Pleasant but not very intensive aroma of hops, fruits and some spices. Large thick head disappearing to durable layer with some lacing. Cloudy golden colour. Pleasant and complex taste of spiciness with a bit of hoppy bitterness and fruity and malty background.

Beertobealive (491) - Courbevoie, FRANCE - JUN 23, 2016
Pours a white head with fresh malts and fine hops. Gold colored body. In mouth nice aromatic hops. Alcohol is well hidden by nice thick hoppy aromas and delicate malts. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

KoNrRiI (1215) - Århus, DENMARK - JUN 11, 2016
0.33 bottle. A clear, deep gold color with a small, hilly, white head - honestly I don’t think I’ve seen a foam shaped like rolling hills before. Aroma of yeasts and spices - sweet and not bad. The taste is sweet, yeasty, and even floral to an extent. A medium body, a creamy yet slick texture, and a below-average carbonation. Finish is medium long, sweet, refreshing, and fruity. Overall the beer is alright, certainly better than the Dendermonde I had just before.

Hopverdju (663) - BELGIUM - MAY 22, 2016
Blond bier met witte wandklevende schuimkraag. Geur: hoppig, moutzoetig, gistkarakter, wat perzik of is het abrikoos? Smaak: bitterig en iets fruitig. Goede koolzuurprikkel. Afdronk: iets zoetig en licht bitterig.
