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.

Pours a very hazy light brown body with a medium lasting head. Pleasant aroma of yeast and malt with tones of wood. Nice and rich taste of creamy malts.

Alengrin (4153) - BELGIUM - AUG 20, 2014
UPDATED: AUG 27, 2014 One of those ’new’ beers made by Sainte-Hélène, also tasted under its alias La Djean Triple ambrée, with yellowish white, thick, moussy, stable head and deep peach blonde colour with warm orange hue, clear with minuscule yeast particles floating around. Powerful flowery and perfumey aroma of rosewater, vanilla, mango, passion fruit, candied orange, lavender, pineapple, tomato, ginger, triple sec, melon, honey, gin, dough. Rounded, full palate with lots of exotic fruits and orange peel, caramelly malts, mellow and supple, spicy and yeasty accents, mild floral hop bitterishness in the finish along with sherry-like warming alcohol without becoming wry. Well-suited for those who like strongly perfumed, spicy ales and quite a venture compared with Sainte-Hélènes older beers.

Een bier met een hele speciale smaak. Je gaat het heel lekker vinden of absoluut niet lekker. Bij mij was het het laatste.

Bottle @ home. Aroma is yeasty and wet forest fruits. Flavour is yeasty malty, fruity esters, a bit too yeasty. Better after a while.

In Leuven at the ZBF. Deep yellow hazy appearance. Nose of yeast and sweetness. Taste of sweet notes (?) with a too strong alcohol feel. Good beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

tomekk1978 (1251) - Z±bki, POLAND - MAR 19, 2014
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.
