Une bière à l’étiquette humoristique où deux primitifs ont emporté la tour de l’église Ste Catherine après avoir bu une ’n toeback !!! Cela situe l’ambiance de dégustation !!! Et d’ailleurs cette bière provoque immédiatement l’admiration dès le versage. Couleur abricot intense. Clarté tout à fait trouble à cause de la levure qui s’invite au versage... Bulles très fines en fontaine généreuse au centre du calice. Mousse blanche légèrement beige qui tient à 1 cm, très crémeuse avec des petits cratères. Une merveille. Arômes de céréales, orange, pamplemousse, cake, jus de raisin blanc et une pointe de girofle. Volume très soyeux de la 1ère bouche magnifique, offrant une bouche pleine avec des céréales et des agrumes. Arrière-bouche fraîche avec un très beau houblon. 2ème superbe bouche équilibrée, parfaite. Douce et fine, magnifique. La 3ème bouche est une merveille pure, avec une saveur de 1ère classe et une texture à faire rêver. La longueur s’ouvre sur une superbe entame des prolongations. La levure est précise, souple, bien faite. L’alcool est bien dosé, fort, et aide vraiment à la saveur. La finale offre un côté fleuri, houblonné, boisé … le tout enrichi de céréales orientée sur le très beau Cara 20. Très grande bière, très grande conception de la bière avec un alcool fort qui soutient magnifiquement le gustatif. Du grand savoir-faire. De la belle œuvre.

paulvanpelt (373) - Reusel, NETHERLANDS - MAY 29, 2013
Goudkleurig, mistig bier met stevige witte schuimkraag. Duidelijke gist en kruiden in de neus, als een belgische tripel. In de mond gaat het mis: weinig smaak. Licht bitter en zeer licht zoet. Aroma komt niet echt door in de mond. Waterig, weinig body, zeer korte afdronk. Alcohol nauwelijks merkbaar voor de 9,5% die erin zit.

Bart (2938) - Brussels, BELGIUM - MAY 14, 2013
33cl Bottle @ Spytighen Duvel, Turnhout. Hazy darker blond coloured beer with some very light carbonation and a small dense white head. Strong sweet yeasty hinted aroma. Medium to full palate. FInish is sweet almost vanilla yeasty sweet hinted. Ok.

bartlebier (2459) - Belchium im Biersgau, GERMANY - MAY 13, 2013
33cl bottle Geers, BB 10/2014. - Interesting case: a Belgian strong ale torn between old sweet&fruity, yeast-dominated tripel traditions and convincing innovative dry hopping and a dry malt base. Typical Belgian yeasty nose of indeed peaches, even sweeter exotic fruits like maracuja and pineapple. Slight hint of booze, however not betraying the nearly 10%. Palate is both minimally old-school syrup-sticky and dry and bitter. great pronounced EU hop character, imparting prolonged bitter and astringent aftertaste.
I would wish this amount of peppery and grassy hops in more Belgian beers. Not quite an instant favourite, but I started to enjoy this one more as it warmed, interesting mix of brewing traditions and flavours.

mmahut (1379) - CZECH REPUBLIC - MAY 11, 2013
Pours in orange hazy body with mountain of head. Aroma shours of honey, raisins and oak. Taste is sweet with summer fruits. Too much alcohol for my taste, unbalanced bitterness in the after taste. Body is huge with fair bottle carbonation.

Hansen (7317) - Assentoft, DENMARK - APR 21, 2013
Dark golden coloured and faint hazy. Has a white head, lasting. Nice aroma, sweet and delicate hoppy, faint grass. Flavor starts sweet, then crisp hoppy, syrupy, dry texture.

oppear (92) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - APR 16, 2013
Hazy yellow, small white top disappears. Smells hops, peach. First taste is mainly bitter and slight hops-sweet, some malt and would say not much alcohol present for the volume. But still, the taste is rather easy, bitter-watery but a decent drink.
