PisskyNight (13) - Pottstown, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 10, 2004
Appearance: Dark Pear like hue, clouded body with a major carbonation flow along with an overwhelming fizzly white head...as I left the smallest portion in the bottle....and once I mixed the dregs up I poured the dregs from the bottom in which brown pieces of yeast sprinkled the head like cinnamon on your latte Smell: Massive array of citrus fruits...from pear to peach, apricot to mango, mango to star fruit....followed up by strong peppery and flower phenols... Taste: quite similar to the smell....a robust citrus fruit appeal, follewed by a well introduced Mr. Yeast...banana seemed to makes its impression as well....nice cider like feel with a vinegar malty backbone....just great complexity Notes: This is a well crafted brew...with all the complex characteristics it remains very very balanced...great stuff

Bel aspect orangé léger très trouble, belle mousse onctueuse et bien blanche. Arômes d’agrumes léger (bergamote ?) et un goût de pain frais à l’entrée en bouche, certainement dû à la levure. Amertume bien marquée, il n’en faut pas plus à mon goût. On est clairement pas sur une bière sucrée. En conclusion une triple très classique mais de grande qualité.

Aroma: gentle esters, some phenolics, fruitiness, some herbal spiciness is also present, dough. Pleasant. Appearance: pale to slight amber, slight haze, white foam with good retention. Taste is similar to aroma, with gentle alcohol warmth and a more prominent herbal spiciness. Slightly sweet, low bitterness, a bit sour. Palate is light to medium body, slick, fluffy, long, slightly sweet, but refreshing finish. Overall: pleasant, drinkable and complex.

mice (782) - FINLAND - AUG 10, 2016
Samea, oranssinkeltainen, todella kaunis olut paksulla vaahdolla. Tuoksussa makeaa hedelmäisyyttä ja maltaisuutta. Maku karamellinen ja maltaisen makea, jälkimaku keskipitkä, makeahkon maltainen ja aika lailla mausteinen ja hiivainen. Mausteinen jälkimaku jää pitkäksi aikaa suuhun. Mainio tripel, yksi parhaista.
