Bottle, 75 cl, Very hazy golden amber with lots of yeasty sediments flaoting around. huge white head, good retention and quite some lace. Spicy, almost perfumed aroma with notes of dried fruits and yeast. Slightly alcholic flavor, sweet, yeasty and light hoppy. Full bodied, caobonation is rather lively. The but I’ve had from Saint Helene, but not that exciting,

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
Non male. Ottima Tripel. Aroma fruttato e floreale venato da un pò d’alcohol, classico delle tripel. Caratterizzata da un apripista amaro che evolve prima verso l’alcool e in un secondo momento verso il dolce. Un dolce quasi di granatina o frutti di bosco. Corpo elegante e non troppo massiccia. Ottima birra.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Zythos Bierfestival 2012, Leuven, Belgium. It pours clear copper with near white head of foam. The aroma offers up mild tartness mixing with citrus and tropical fruit notes as well as a faint apple juice sensation. The taste delivers spicy hops and then a mix of tangelo and mango fruitiness. This is smooth tasting pretty much hop forward brew and dangerously drinkable at 9%, very dangerous. It seemed like a 5% beer.
