COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bière de dégustation, son apparence nous égare. Ses houblons alsaciens très fins lui confèrent un bouquet délicat, fruité et floral. La rondeur que lui confère le malt la rend très douce et masque son fort taux d’alcool qui réchauffe la gorge sans perturber les sens. Elle est noble, subtile et enivrante, à déguster donc avec prudence.

Barwa: głęboko bursztynowa, wyraźnie zmętniona. Piana biała, drobno pęcherzykowa, średnio obfita i szybko opadająca. Wysycenie średnie. Aromat: typowy dla tripla, a zatem alkohol, owoce (brzoskwinie, morele) i lekka nuta słodowa. Smak: olbrzymia słodowa słodycz z wytrawną i alkoholową kontrą oraz owocową końcówką. Całkiem nieźle. Kolejne piwo przyjemnie zaskakuje. Choć mocniejsze od swojej siostry okazuje się być bardziej złożone w smaku i pijalne. Wprawdzie zawartość alkoholu jest wyraźnie wyczuwalna, ale jak na tripel jest stosunkowo łagodne i słodkie. Nie przepadam za tym stylem, bowiem jest zwykle dość wytrawny, alkoholowy i szorstki. Tutaj duża dawka słodyczy świetnie równoważy alkohol. Tym razem można zaryzykować zakup, choć jest to trunek raczej do spokojnego sączenia.

Quack-Duck (7517) - Down South, GERMANY - FEB 22, 2014

abemorsten (2489) - Mosterøy, NORWAY - FEB 13, 2014
Slow gusher. Muddy golden body with just enough transparency to see the immersed particles saturating the beer. That counts as uninviting in my rating. Covered by an inch thick dense off-white head. Sweet, yeasty and wooden notes on the nose. Full bodied, alcoholic, sweet and pungent, papery bitter with stale spices. Sticky doughy mouthfeel. Long lasting finish.

Zer0 (1125) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - JAN 31, 2014
Bottle at home. Pours cloudy copper with a thick off-white head. Aroma is very sweet malty, yeast, spicy, floral and caramel. Taste is quite boozey, very sweet and light bitter. Sticky texture, just everything involved in this beer is sweet. Not well balanced. Full bodied.

Misterstout (3) - Bas-Oha, BELGIUM - JAN 11, 2014 does not count
Superbe biere, belle mousse et saveur de fruit, floral. Une belle douceur pour une biere qui tire à 9% alcool et une amertume très agréable. super chouette.

Smalle (60) - Leuven, BELGIUM - DEC 28, 2013
75 cl bottle. Nose: malty, yeasty and quite a bit of alcohol. Some hops too. Taste: better than expected. The alcohol is there, but does not dominate. The sweetness is balanced with a nice floral hoppiness. Very pleasant overall.

JorgeLee (1065) - Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 26, 2013
Bottle from Bier Tempel. Great label design. Light amber goden colour. Quite a restrained triple, mild yeasty spice, some grainy bready malt, not much bitterness. Ok but I’ve had better.
