Thick, very heavy with a huge head. Lots of alc in the background mixed in the aroma with vanilla, ripe fruits and caramel. Gets better with a rising temperature. Came as a stranger and stayed as a friend. Typical belgian triple with lot of secret sweetness. Nice.

Good example of the style. Blond with a lot of white foam. Medium carbonation. Fruity beer with sweet hints and bitter dry aftertaste.

Very nice aroma of fruit with some sweet malt. The flavor has the fruit and malt but has a nice peppery bite to balance. Extremely dry and refreshing. Quite nice for the summer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours a dark golden with a heavy, white one finger head. Yeasty nose, nice carbonation, light fruity notes and not too sweet. Didn’t notice much of an alcohol burn. Excellent version of the style.

Nice, unclear, unfiltered beer with a honey-like color. Sweet-fruity aroma with a touch of alcohol. It tastes sweet in the beginning, but this quickly goes on in a slightly bitter aftertaste. Mooi, ongefilterd honingkleurig bier. Ook hier in het aroma het zoet-fruitige met de toets van alcohol. De smaak is in het begin even zoet, maar dit gaat snel over in een heel lichtbittere nasmaak.

Deep gold pour. Aroma is bananas, cherries, nuts, raisins, yeast and alcohol. Delicious flavor of raisins, prunes, and alcohol.. Very sweet with a bit of a sour finish. Yummm.

My favorite style, and this one does not disappoint. Pours dark, hazy golden/orange with adequate silky head. Aroma of citrus and apricots, butterscotch, caramel. Mouthfeel is buttery and silky smooth. Taste is butter, smooth malt, tangy hops. A sipper for sure, to enjoy its full body and intricate character.
