Lightbrown, cloudy with flakes. White thick fine foam. Mild aroma of apricot. Medium body high in carbon. Taste is caramel mixed with apricot. Bitterness comes later and gets magnified and lasts long

drjoeng (935) - SINGAPORE - OCT 20, 2016
8%ABV. Tripel. Poured out gold. 6ºSRM. Nose is sour and wit-like. Can I say witty? There are aromas of raw wheat flour and proofing bread dough. A bit of nice stone dust or cement dust in the nose. Other aromas that could approximate what I’m describing might be clay and plaster of paris and soft chalk. Mouthfeel is light and beery. There is pronounced carbonation. Palate has some nice white bread, white bread toast, sweet dough and wheat flour flavors. Nice noble hop balance. Nice little hit of alcohol right at the end before the hops set in. The hops are noble and taste of old oak or aged hardwood. Finish is clean and very ethereally sweet and light. Very good and very close to my favorite abbey tripel of all time, Karmeliet Tripel. Goes on Favorites List!

jbruner (4108) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - OCT 18, 2016
Pours a hazy golden yellow from the bottle with fluffy white head that dissipates to leave good lace. Aroma of earthy spice, floral hop notes, and light malty sweetness. Taste follows, clean Belgian esters with light fruity notes and light hop notes. Booze incredibly well hidden, effervescent, full body. Amazing how good these beers can be when you get them in their home country.

Delicious. Sweeter and more fruity than I expected, but not too sticky. Caramel or candied sugar, peach, clove. Maybe age has skewed this bottle towards sweetness. Best by 03 12 17 on bottle.

Banzale (60) - FRANCE - SEP 27, 2016
Acheter à Tabac&co palais des bières dans famiflora à dottignies. Bouteille de 33 cl. Couleur jaunes orangée trouble. Au nez , présence de sucre , de fleur ? Cest floral peu être bien du pollen ? Un nez sucrée je découvrirais en bouche. En bouche , en effet présence de sucre en arrière bouche mielleux acacias , un fine amertume en fin de bouche, c’est moelleux en bouche le goût est bien reparti.

Huge frothy white head, very long lasting, that evolves to rocky. Hazy light amber colour, sparkling with chains of very small bubbles. Aroma is dry, with slight sour sensation, fruity (some peach) and spicy. Taste is dry and spicy, some fruitiness (banana), some caramel. Fruity bitterness finish. High carbonation.

jacobarts (99) - Aarhus, DENMARK - SEP 15, 2016
Bottle. Hazy golden with thin medium white head. Beautiful beer. Very fresh and sour aroma. Taste has a citrus/fruity beginning, and the aftertaste is medium bitter with a hint of alchohol. Fine medium body. I’m not af fan of the aftertaste in this beer, too much alchohol.
