Our bokbier for Easter; not too sweet, thereby producing a fine flavour. The flavour and aromas give a nicely balanced mix of fruit, coriander, yeast and hops. An enjoyable combination in which the bitter element gets an additional boost from the lightly roasted malt. The aftertaste is slightly sparkling, with a long-lasting, fresh, sweet flavour. An excellent beer for celebrating the arrival of spring!

buddybutch (14) - Nantes, FRANCE - MAY 8, 2016
In bottle. A very good surprise. I was reluctant to drink it, but it’s a good beer. Medium white head, not very fizzy. Strong coriander smell. Very sweet and oily tongue. I see it as a light Tripel Karmeliet

ALIBALI (280) - Kiel, Schleswig-Holstein, GERMANY - MAY 5, 2016
Aus der Flasche der Knaller (ca.2Euro/0,33l aus dem Braushop). Der helle Bock zuerst kaum erkennbar. Belgisch, hoppy kommt es daher und erst beim Trunk mischt sich die typische Süße unter den extravaganten Trunk. Der Nachhall ist dann abgefahren. Intensiv, hoppy, tripelig und klar süß. HEISS!!!!! Die beiden Male die ich es vom Hahn probiert habe waren nicht so intensiv, aber trotzdem solide (HET ELFDE GEBOD, Amsterdam 0,33l/4,80 und direkt im TIJ Brewpub 0,3/ca.3Euro)

Bottle at Appellation Wines tasting. Clear golden body with a thin white head. Faint lacing. Aroma of bay leaf, lime chutney and yeast. Flavour of bread, honeyed malt and sweetcorn. Medium body with an oily mouthfeel. Soft fizz. Interesting aroma but it tastes overly sweet.
