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.

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.

thanatosti (978) - NETHERLANDS - NOV 29, 2013
75 cl. bottle shared with Rick @ home, bought somewhere in Belgium. Hazy orange golden with a white head. Sweet fruity almost flowery aroma and taste, More a tripel than an Belgian strong ale in my opinion but either way a tasty beer.

Svesse (6296) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - NOV 13, 2013
(Bottle, Brasserie Lombard, Brussels, 25 Oct 2013) Hazy golden colour with frothy, off-white head. Fruity, malty nose with bread, spices and dried fruit. Malty, fruity taste with notes of bread, dried fruit, bread spices and a gentle spicy bitterness in the finish. Almost full body, with a certain sweetness. Well made, balanced and tasty. Nice one.

rodenbach99 (3264) - Longueuil, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 5, 2013
Bouteille de 750ml au Saint-Bock. Bière blonde dorée légèrement trouble qui a formé une superbe dentelle au parois. Un nez simple de malt pilsner un peu sucré. Le sucre candi fait des ravages. Des traces d’épices et de houblon noble sont perceptible. Une bouche un peu sucré mais tout de même bien appuyé par des houblons.

mjs (4794) - Helsinki, FINLAND - OCT 30, 2013
(Keg at Gastropub Tuulensuu, 20131030) The beer poured golden and hazy. Its head was medium sized and white. Aroma had fruitiness, honey and perfumes. Palate was medium bodied with medium carbonation. Flavours were fruitiness, honey, Belgian style yeast, clove, malts and harsh bitterness. Aftertaste was fruity and bitter. A bit harsh tripel but still ok.

Color: hazy amber/blond beer with particles of yeast small, carbonization and small white head. Smell: sweet taste, very strange with malt and yeast. Taste: high malt domination with big yeast presence. No hoppy taste. Aftertaste: caramel, sugar cane and some alcohol with malt.
