My first review. Poured into pint glass. Great brown caramel color. Decent fizzy pale head. Great fruity taste and good depth of flavor, but I am a big fan of IPA and I am missing the hoppy bite from this beer. A bit expensive, but overall this is a really good belgian style tripel.

A hell of a beer. A successful infusion of Belgian tripel with an American-style IPA to my mind. Nose of that lovely Simcoe pininess mixed with an almost rye-like spice. Taste really full-on, with biscuits and molasses-like sweetness mingling with straight-up hop bitterness. Finishes nice and spicy with coriander, cloves and even a hint of pepper!

Yum. I just love the caramel overtones on this delicious IPA. It might not quite suit the IPA purist but as a sumptuous blend it went down well with me. Love the syrupy mouth feel !

We all know this an IPA, not just a hoppy amber ale. Indeed it is a really great Belgian DIPA. Keep on drinking it. I love this brew. Probably because you don’t find too much good Belgian IPAs and here it is one. Or probably it’s just great by itself. Next time I will describe my impressions because for now I just want to enjoy it.

Bouteille de 33 cl. Belle couleur ambrée, mousse abondante et de tenue très correcte. Gros arôme de pêche qui m’a immédiatement rappellé la Bush Pêche mel, avec une touche de miel. Carbonnation aérée, agréable en bouche. Trouvée à Vanuxeem - Ploegstaert.

Slayer85 (1051) - Firenze, ITALY - AUG 8, 2012
750 ml bottle. A hazy pale to medium amber beer, with a huge, frothy, lacing, virtually fully lasting off-white head. The aroma is moderately malty (cookies, caramel), moderately hoppy (grapefruit, apricot, pine neeldes, herbs), lightly yeasty (dough), with notes of exotic fruits, pepper, hint of banana. The flavor is heavily sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, lightly to moderately bitter. Medium to full body, velvety/syrupy texture, lively carbonation, long finish with moderate bitterness, moderately alcoholic. It slightly exceeds in sweetness, but I wouldn’t call it unbalanced. A bit sticky, but never palate scratching. Nice lacing and a lot of nuances in the nose. Thumbs up for this one.

JanLaursen (3227) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - AUG 5, 2012
Bottle, 33 cm, unclear orange with 1/2 a finger off white head. Aroma has notes of caramel, preach, passion fruit, citrus. Taste is heavy sweet malty with a fruity hoppy, lingering bitter finish, some astringency and a herbal note. Full bodied. Soft carbonation. Wellmade American-style DIPA with a discrete Begian touch.

Amber colored, dry, hoppy, orange taste. Appearance is great, nice head, but a little bit too normal to get a high rating.
