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.

JanLaursen (3063) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - FEB 7, 2013
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,

750ml bottle @ One Pint Pub, Helsinki. Pours hazy orange with an off-white head. Orange peels, nuts, spices, caramel and slight alcoholic pungency in the aroma. The flavour has some orange as well, along with spices, bread, yeast and caramel. Sweetish, fruity finish.

IlBevitorediLA (452) - ITALY - JUL 7, 2012
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.

Ibrew2or3 (6846) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - JUN 1, 2012
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.
