oh6gdx (20004) - Vasa, FINLAND - JUL 11, 2009
Bottled (from belgianshop.be). Golden colour, huge white foamy head, which leaves nice lace. Aroma is grass, some spices, sweet malts and mild notes of alcohol. Flavour is spices, some yeast, quite grassy and also sweetish malty notes. Hides the alcohol quite well, even though it shows a bit as a stinging sweetness. A rather "dry grassy" tripel. Was way better than I expected. As it warms up it gets some mild alcoholic and metallic notes in the flavour though, so better drunk when colder.
