Light honey pour with a razor thin head that diminishes to nothingness. Aroma is faint Belgian yeast, spice, caramel, wood, and a little citrus. Favor is similar, which isn’t tremendously exciting, but masks the alcohol well. A touch of sweetness and zest...expected more but wasn’t terribly disappointed either.

Rating #651, flaske fra Fish N’ Beer medbragt af Brian til julebrygsmagning 2011

Kort fortalt, samme som den ulagrede version, bare med mere af det hele - specielt træsmag og alkohol. Mundfølelsen lader på en eller anden måde til at være blevet en smule tyndere. Øllen har stadig ikke meget med tripel at gøre, og selvom den bestemt er drikkelig, forstår jeg ikke at gennemsnitsvurderingen er helt så høj som den er.

Draught @ Borefts 2011. Hazy, with amber color and no head. Fruity aroma with honey, wood, caramel and yeast. Medium dense and carbonated. Sweet, lasting finish. Good one.

[3994-20110925] 330mL bottle. Sweet caramel tea grain malt aroma. Hazy, dark brown body with a medium-lasting creamy off-white head. Boozy sweet floral toffee malt flavour with a long lasting heavily sweetened finish. Medium-full body. Interesting enough. (7/3+/7/3/14) 3.4+

UPDATED: OCT 14, 2011 Bottle, quite the gusher even after sitting for almost a year. Pours a murky, unfiltered, dark apple cider color with brown highlights. A lot of floaties in there too. Strange aroma of a ton of oak, wet wood, grapes, and some sweet caramelized sugar. Flavors caramel apples, burnt sugar, wet wood, and yeast are most pronounced. In addition to the cider like qualities, theres almost a white wine aspect that it retains in its finish due to the oak. Starts off sweet and finishes dry and tannic. Interesting for a triple. Was a little worried at first, but I dig.

2011-09-25. Murky amber body foams out of the bottle, small beige head after it settles down. Sweet malt, caramel touches, modest malt, light alcohol, lightly spicey, kiss of brandy or cognac like alcohol character? 7+ Flavour is similar, sweet malt with caramel and sugary touches. Dry edges and modest alcohol throughout, light hints of wood and something I can’t place in the background. Bit of liquor like alcohol touches. Smooth average plus to medium bodied palate is softly carbonated. 3+ Nice but not what I am looking for today apparently. Bottle, approximately a year old from bottle shop in Brussels

Pours an amber color with off white head and some chunks. Aroma is cane sugar, apple brandy, Bread. Taste is quite sweet and smooth with apple and floral notes and a malty sweet finish. Much better then the regular version imo.
