Bottle at De Rector. Deep gold, clear, with a tall, fine head. Fruity tripel nose, honey, stewed fruits, earthy hops. Sweet stewed fruit flavor with honey, sweet orange, light tang, citrus hop finish. Nice tangy fruitiness, but nothing much happening.

goudgele kleur , mooie schuimige witte kraag die lichtjes verdwijnt , fruitige en hoppige geur met lichte kruiding . smaak is zeer kruidig licht fruitig en licht zoet . weinig alcoholgehalte in de mond al is deze toch 8,2% . en dit bier gedronken in wilderen is een magisch moment pure liefde voor het brouwen voel je zo .

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
33cl Bottle: BBD Dec 2014. Poured (at home) into a Duvel glass during Jul 2013.
Half way through the pour huge sediment pieces began to shoot out the bottle with the beer: once fully poured it looked awful and even after getting a sieve out to decant again it was obvious I’d end up with a mass of floating grist in my glass. A big disappointment as I’d had this bottle in my stash for awhile and was looking forward to it.
Anyway the orange body was full of ’bits’ and even though I allowed it plenty of time to settle it refused to even consider the idea.
The beer had a decent enough nose: yeast (obviously with it all in the glass), fruity and interesting.
The taste was not as interesting or decent though: sweet and ’bitty’ is the best I can come up with.
I’ve tried to score objectively, but I don’t really think this would have scored highly even if it had been clear, bright and less murky.

A clear golden colored beer, with a thick foamy white head. The aroma of sweet malt and fruits like orange and some citrus with some hop. The taste of malt, sweet fruits a little hop. The aftertaste is sweet with a little bitter.

Lovely beer that still isnt well known to most of the beerdrinkers. Fruity aroma and even a more fruitier (after-)taste. Definately recommended.
