pompelmoes (89) - BELGIUM - NOV 13, 2009
Great looking golden-blond beer with a nice big white head on top. Aroma is slight peppery and has some Duvel like characteristics. It has a medium-dry malty feeling and some flowery touches too. Taste is ferm and it has a good balans. There are some hints of hops, alcohol and pale-malts ending with a nice peppery and flowery finish. Tasted at De Garre Bruges served in its most original glass.

Big magnum type size bottle. Maybe it was because I drunk the whole lot in a couple of hours, maybe it was the fact that this is as good as I thought it was. Ever since I started rating (and before, I’ve always yearned for more since I was a boy) it has made my beer drinking experience so much richer and steadily moved me away from where I started on the blondes and tripels. This brought me home, this is pretty much how I want my every day beer to taste. Pineapple and citrus, sherbert, very yeasty, some spice, little caramel. Also helps that it brings back memories of being sat in De Garre on my honeymoon. I loved this stuff. Very tasty and with the sheer knackers a good beer should have. One criticism, they have ham or cheese sandwiches, he wouldn’t make me a ham and cheese! Miserable twat.

Tap at Staminee de Garre in Brugge. Bright golden color with a huge creamy white head with excellent retention and lacing. Aroma is wheat, yeast, grain, spice, and alcohol. Flavor is fairly malty with lots of yeast, also some spices and citrusy hops. Palate fairly smooth and creamy, a little full for the style. Solid.

bhensonb (10696) - Woodland, California, USA - JUL 16, 2009
Tap at Staminee de Garre in Brugge. Poured copper/amber with a huge, laceing, foamy white head. Aroma is suggestive of spice and orange. Medium plus body with mild carbonation. Flavor is rather clean and fresh - lighter fruits, mild roast caramel, and some typical yeast/spice. None of the common kandi aspect. Finishes somewhat bitter. Good drink.

aaronbr (125) - Palo Alto, California, USA - JUL 14, 2009
Served from De Garre brewpub in Bruges. A clean and subtle aroma on the pour, which looks pretty much perfect. Powerful malt flavor with a bit of sweetness and breadiness. The hops make a nice, but subdued appearance. There is a lingering bitterness on the palate. It nicely complements the cubes of cheese they served with it. Overall, it was very pleasant, and I’ll be back for another next time I make it to Belgium again.

Bel colore arancio opaco con enorme, abbondante schiuma. Aroma floreale con alcune note di arancia . Il sapore è molto dolce con note di arance e miele. L’alcol è ben nascosto, e c’è una leggera spolverata di luppolo. Retrogusto agrodolce. Molto più dolce del normale ma paicevole, ben costruita.Buona.

Tap @ De Garre. Pours gold/orange with monstrous frothy head. Tons of lacing left after drinking. Aroma of spices, particularly coriander. As it warms, I get some vanilla to peek out. Taste is similar, with some fruity sweetness and more coriander. The alcohol is very noticeable here, which makes it a bit difficult to drink. Finish is spicy and alcohol hot. Definitely let this beer warm up a bit before you drink it.

Tap @ Staminee de Garre, Brügge.
Pours wonderful, clear golden with a giant, fat, creamy white head. Really a sight to behold. Great lacings and the head stays for a very long time. Aroma is classic tripel. Some sweet malts, mixed with a good dose of apples, coriander, pineapple and other spices. Low carbonation; very low for the style actually, but it doesn’t hurt it at all. Flavour is sweet, light fruity tartness. Dry hops abound and mixes with apples, pineapple, malts and spices. Super lovely and soft tripel.
