330ml bottle from Bochka in Moscow. Pours amber with a big foamy off-white head. Aroma of spice and citrus fruits. Starts with some sweetness to begin with, but a good yeasty Tripel flavour in the end. Flavour improved as it warmed up. Really nice one.

Have had this one in burges two years ago and found it in the supermarket the other day, to now finally rate it. From the bottle poured into nosing glass. Huge, stable off white head and orange color, a bit hazy though. Nose is intense belgian yeast and some hops. High carbonation and intense bitterness. Rich mouthfeef and grassy hoppy finish. Quite good, but not as good as in my memory...

Unique light smell...but deep for smell, decent malty taste...sweet but not very complex at first. .definitely seems to improve and get deeper with warmth though...way better with time!

Flaska 75 cl belgolådan. Orange kulör med fluffigt beiget skum. Frisk doft av gräs, aprikos och jäst. Örtig smak med lite bananskum, hö, aprikos och äppelmos. Lite söt med en frisk och spritsig avslutning.

Would expect more, but still decent tripel.. Mostly malty, some caramel light fruitiness, bit dried fruits, bit overripe fruits, some yeast. Moderate sweetness with light tartness and light bitterness. .Decent, but nothing too fancy
