Golden amber color, with a creamy, persistent white foam. Aroma of citrus like lemon and orange, alcohol is noticeable but perfectly integrated. Sweet taste with citrus and a pleasant hop bitterness and a roasted malt ending.

Digzis (68) - Nancy, FRANCE - MAY 28, 2014
Légèrement ambrée et légèrement trouble. Un nez de céréales, des notes de banane et de caramel. Les bulles sont assez présentes. Légèrement amère. Un ensemble qui se tient bien…

Koning_Daan (117) - Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - MAY 27, 2014
Bottle. Pours clear golden with a thick foamy head. Malty aroma. Some sweetness in the taste, caramel, medium bitterness, soft touches, noticable alcohol. Decent and indeed a bit "straf".

nathanvc (41) - Brugge, BELGIUM - MAY 11, 2014
The aroma has light malts, some herbs and even candy (I could say apple too). It appears dark golden with a (very) long lasting white head. Tastes bitter up until the aftertaste but the malts compensate for that. A full body, oily texture and soft carbonation. The alcohol only pops in after a few sips. A very decent Belgian tripel.

lightbias (85) - USA - MAY 9, 2014
This was a nice golden color with a thick and lacy head that lasted throughout the glass. Lightly malty with a fruity aroma and a very slightly bitter aftertaste. This was a nicely balanced experience. Not too bitter, too fruity, too anything. Just a nice glass of beer.

Hazy golden color with big head. Nice herbal and malty aroma but poor at taste.
