Full foamy white head with a honey golden liquid beneath. Nice aroma of fruity malts and evident alcohol. Taste is of alcohol and hops with a tad of sour bitters in a bad way. Texture is nice and fluid on the watery side. Alcohol content is evident.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Golden colour, white, good head. Nose made up by pale malts, grain, chaff. Very dry impression, alcohol, slightly perfumed and peppery. There is a slight sweetness underlying. Aftertaste is sweet. A good triple - but I estimate the old name, Cuvée St. Amand, was more colourful.

I was impressed with this beer, period. Malty, light bodied, effervecent, smooth finish. Restrained belgian character. The malt really stands out in this beer. Now, it was oxidized, but what imported beer isn't oxidized. Very well balanced. Wow, I like this beer.
