This beer starts with a nice aroma of banana, peach, and clove. It pours a clear amber, with visible carbonation, and a full white head that leaves good sticky lacing on the glass. There’s quite a bit of sugar in this beer, as it has a light sweet flavor, with the alcohol amazingly hidden. The palate has a bit of slickness to it, with a clean finish. This is an amazingly drinkable tripel, and I’ll be picking up more of this.

33cl bottle. Apperance:Golden clear body and nice bubbly white head. Aroma, Fruity sweetness of apricots and fresh figs. Belgian yeast, Taste: above moderate sweet and alcohol, but decntly balanced out with some fruityness and some classic hops. Bit of spicey yeast. Good balance on complexity and esayness, which makes it dangerous. slightly above average body, slightly below average carbonation.

Pours a clear deep honey color with a big foamy cream head. Very lively champagne bubbles keep the head supported. Aroma is light - doughy yeast and a bit floral but not very strong. Taste is immediately sweet - honey, ripe apples, plums, bananas foster - a hint of jasmine maybe. Not bitter at all the finish remains sweet with a touch of vanilla. The taste is much more powerful and complex than the aroma would suggest. Mouthfeel is smooth. This is an absolutely excellent brew and thoroughly exceeded my expectations!

Flaska från Belgoklubben. Klar bärnstenfärgad med generös, luftig skumkrona. Söt doft av torkade aprikoser och belgojäst. Medelfyllig kropp med frisk kolsyra som smeker munlädret. Kryddig smak av belgojäst, torkade aprikoser, peppar och skumbanan. Lätt bitter och torr avslutning.

Interesante versión del estilo tripel. Cítricos, especias y cereal en nariz, con un cuerpo poderoso y un final de trago casi picante.
