En route to Haeckel-Stein, Jena. Thanks Sven! Nice sweet orange candy nose, quite full. Very dusty taste, cloves, typical Belgian, sweet. Will rerate, but this smelled lovely, and the taste, while not up with the best of them, is quite nice.

beerbill (3464) - Laurel, New York, USA - APR 6, 2012
750 ml bottle. Pours a clear golden amber with a moderate linen white head that lasted through the first quarter of the glass and left partial lace. The second pour was more hazy and was filled lots of floaties. Pleasant aroma of sweet malt with a bit of sugar, caramel, and fruit. The flavor is similar with sweet malt, a bit of sugar, mild caramel and fruit. Medium bodied. Solid.

Bottle 33 cl, Berthom, Lyon I. Pours clear copper amber with a good off white head leaving lacing. Aroma is fruity, malty, sweetish, apricots and orange peelings. Flavor is sweet caramel and fruits in front, more sweetness, apricots and bitter pungent with nice maltyness in the middle ending with warming alcohol and pungent bitterness. Finishes bitter spicy with a good warming alcohol trouch,

(750 ml (2011) from Bootleggers) Pours bright and clear amber with a slight rust/copper hue. Later pours are more cloudy. Two fingers or so of off-white head. Sweet aroma with notes of fruit and lighter caramel. Mouthfeel buttery soft and smooth, light fine-bubble carbonation. Thin, sticky sheets of lacing. Flavor is sweet, sticky and fruity. Hop-bitter, slightly licoricey bite in finish. Nice.

Dorwart (2378) - Robbinsville, New Jersey, USA - MAR 14, 2012
Moderate off-white head of fine bubbles with very good carbonation. Grass and straw aroma with some yeast, cereal grains and a touch of lemon. Color is a crystal clear golden orange. Wow, big alcohol presence smacks you in the face upon first sip. More cereal grains, creamed corn, sweet malts and some light herbal hops. Tastes to me like a cross between a belgian tripel and cheap malt liquor. Light hint of fruit and some metallic flavors late swallow. A bit disappointed with this one.

Beautiful golden color. Slight alcohol taste but not overbearing. Delicious tripel.
