3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
33cl from beer planet.
c,ear orange, smooth offwhite to yellowish orange head.
Aroma is dominated by sweet malts, also some belgian (white) caramel, faint yellow fruits (also banana). Not much belgian weirdo-yeast or weirdo-spices, aroma is quite clean , without being industrial. nice.
flavor is quite malty, quite sweet, but with a mild spicy and distinct bitter (but not at all flowery) note to it, for balance. A bit boozy perhaps, but a lot nicer than many other european strong malty beers (typically lagers). For a tripel this is very malty, what saves the day is that it is a sort of dry maltiness, not sweet malty - that would’ve been very cloying. If You like malty, You’ll like this one - if not, it will probably not be Your thing. Somewhat well buried under the maltiness You have belgian yeasty spicy notes, and fruity notes.

Dobre i smaczne piwo, tresciwe i w zapachu świeży chleb dominuje. W smaku drożdzowo-chlebowe. kolor po zmętnieniu jest prawie brązowy. Piana spora, ale szybko opada. Nuty rozgrzewające na finiszu.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Brown 330 ml bottle, poured into a tulip glass. ABV 8.1%
Huge white and thick head, a little more than three fingers. Very good retention and heavy lacing covering the glass as the foam goes down. Colour of the beer is a deep, slighty hazy but transparent orange gold.
On the aroma malts, yeast, fruity peach notes. Very nice.
Taste is sweet and malty, but becomes soft bitter on the finish, with lots of hops. Again, some peach notes. The alcohol is masterfully hidden.
Medium on the body, with right carbonation. Quite dry on the palate.
Very nice tripel, glad I gave it a try.

Ruikt naar stro, stal of mest. Stevige schuimkraag. Smaak: zoet bier, esters en hop. Bittere nasmaak die blijft plakken in de mond. Nasmaak zeer aangenaam. Dit bier was een belevenis, maar eenmalig.
