blankboy (6583) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 16, 2015
[Bottle (330ml) at Le Supercoin, Paris, May 21] 25th rating of my Paris/Amsterdam trip. Pours a hazy golden-orange with an average size long-lasting frothy white head. Minimal lacing. Nice aroma, quite fruity, yeasty and a bit herbal. Some sweet malt in there as well. Interesting flavour, it follows the aroma but with an almost harsh finish. Some alcohol present but not too bad. Medium bodied. Enjoyable and a bit different.

PapaVillum (659) - Valby, DENMARK - JUN 1, 2015
33 cl, flaske, 9,0 % ABV, BB: 11/2015, købt i, og anbefalet af ejeren af, Brune Rousse Houblon i Nice i Sydfrankrig, 1. juni 2015. Orange/lys sirupsfarvet og ufiltreret fransk Belgian Strong Ale med stor offwhite tætskummende krone, som svinder til et par mm tykkelse. I dette glas forekom der gærrester efter ophældning og sandsynligvis efter eftergæringen på flaske. Meget frugtrig aroma af mandarin, men også krydret af koriander. Maltnuancer af hø. Desuden alkohol i næsen. Første smagsindtryk er en solid sødme med snigende og middelkraftig bitterhed i lidt skæv balance, men hov, hvor balancen indfinder sig efter jetlag'et har lagt sig. Bitterheden kommer helt anderledes i spil med sødmen og rent smagsmæssigt er vi i det belgiske Tripel-område. Øllet har en middel til rund og fyldig krop med en fin karbonering på et niveau under middel. Konsistensen er tyk/klæbrig. Eftersmagen er lækker bittersød og lang. Dette er et dejligt glas øl, og jeg forstår samt værdsætter anbefalingen.

Travlr (15913) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - AUG 22, 2014
Cloudy orange color. Effervescent head , but then evaporates. Sweet malty aroma with overtones of caramel and orange. Sweet orange zest flavor, but not much finish. OK, but not great.

fushi (6) - - APR 26, 2014 does not count
Nice golden color and a soft white head. Fruity nose and a similar taste, but with a noticable amount of alcohol, somewhat ruining it. Still, fits the style.

BobyFischer (145) - FRANCE - NOV 6, 2014
Peu habitué aux belges de façon générale, je la rapproche immédiatement d’une Chimay Triple/Blanche.Mais meilleure ! Très aromatique.L’attaque levurée laisse rapidement place à une belle palette de houblons aromatiques, floraux et herbacés et à une douce amertume.Cocorico ! Une bonne française !
