Bottle, bought @ Barley Wine, Cph.
Pours clear orange with a big, staying, frothy, white head. Aroma has lots of delicious fruit, grapefruit, apricot, peach, citrus. A bit of green apple. Highish carbonation, oily and dry mouthfeel. Flavour is mildly vinious, very dry and bitter, grapefruit, citrus, fairly crisp malts. Lingering, warming, fresh bitter finish. Lovely.

loving the idea of a new genre of Belgian pale ales out there. the marriage of big American hops with Belgian Tripel strenghts sounds appealing. This beer pours rich, dark golden, huge, fluffy off-white head. lots of carboation. nose of citrus, grapefruit, grassy malts, wheat, faint pine and resin, honey.real appetizing. subtle Belgian yeast sweetness, esters, honey, caramel malts, earthy pine notes then bitter, dry finish finish. real creamy mouthfeel and simply well balanced. Great BPA.

On tap at Paradiso Dupont...much darker than a typical tripel...was more the color of a quad. I couldn’t tell me for the hops this was smooth and sweet and pretty tasty overall. Didn’t have the complexity of some of the best tripels, but tasty and good on a cold night.

75cl bottle shared with ajax25g.
Couleur orangée, col épais blanc.
Arôme est plein de bonnes notes de levure et de houblon cascade allant du fleuri au citronné et autres bonnes agrumes.
En bouche, un vrai régal, une bière que je trouve bien balancée avec un profile épicé mis en avant par la combinaison du houblon et de la levure.
Fruité allant sur le tropical; mangue et pamplemousse, le tout sur un malt caramel et ce profile de levure belge. Un régal.

750ml bottle from Pick’s poured into a Chimay Trappist glass. Pours a cloudy orange with about 3 finger of off-white head. Aroma of floral hops, grass and grapefruit. Taste is medium sweet and light bitter. Lots of Belgian sugar and honey with a decent bit of floral hops. Medium bodied with a thick and creamy texture. Lively carbonation and a long finish. Overall, pretty good. Not really what I was expecting but still very good.
