Flesje al enige tijd geleden gekocht. Deze kerstavond met familie gedronken. Geur is zeer hoppig. Goudgeel bier enigszins troebel. Stevig wit schuim. Fruitig en bitter in de smaak. Hop-smaak blijf lang in de mond hangen. Lekker bier om rustig van te genieten.

Very enjoyable beer, a little bit sweet, taste of hops is very distinct but subtle. Leaves great after taste. Great beer overall!

Kauge (1530) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - DEC 17, 2015
Bottle from Beer Express. BB 09/2017. Pours hazy pale golden with a big white frothy head The aroma is standard (... actually sub-par) pale BSA, yeasty-fruity-doughy, but with more than a bit of bandaid. Tastes mellow sweet, finishing with hollow bitterness and a scraping chlorophenolic off-note. Watery. Carbonation near flat. Alcohol so present. How on earth has this achieved 93/100?

zenkis (747) - Ogre, LATVIA - DEC 15, 2015
Reminds me more of Belg Tripel- very malty, sharp/sugary sweet and thick mouthfeel. Close to full body, some flowers (i think from variety of syrup) in aroma. Like classy tripel no + or -, good drinkability. Hops? Hmm, I think they forgot to add propper amount, medium to light bitterness.

IslandHaole (1228) - Mililani, Hawaii, USA - DEC 8, 2015
Cloudy straw colored beer with a light golden-hued and short-lived, creamy head.Has an unusual yeasty, sweet and a bit funky scent. Sweet, grainy, with hints of bubblegum...yeasty with the 9.5 ABV buried deep. A slight spicy bitterness in the follow.

Ysok02 (848) - MOns, BELGIUM - DEC 4, 2015
Robe blonde, belle mousse. Nez houblonné, fruité, malté sur un fond de levure et d’agrumes. Bouche à l’attaque sèche, houblonnée, une matière ciselée et une finale tendue. Une bière de soif tout en fraîcheur.

lello4ever (587) - ITALY - DEC 1, 2015
Bionda torbida con una bella schiuma frizzante. Al naso frutta e spezie. Piuttosto dolce al palato, amaro quasi inesistente, alcol ben in evidenza e giusta carbonazione medio alta. Una buona ale che assomiglia a una tripel ma manca di una nota marcatamente speziata e anche quel luppolo promesso nell’etichetta, che mi fa abbassare un po’ la valutazione.

BOTTLE 33 CL. Almost clear golden, big white head. Classic Golden Strong aroma - dry fruity, spicy. Not very strong and no alcohol. The taste is similar, but this time with lots of alcohol. Phenolic bitter finish. Good, but too hot.

0,7 l bottle Vinmonopolet. Fruity aroma with notes of grass. Taste is also fruity but also notes of biscuit, herbs and spice. Its to much alcohol taste and its not hidden. This one disappointed me a bit...

Rating #1332. Clear golden pour with a bubbly white head that fades to a ring. Aroma is booze, grassy hops, and yeast. Palate is initially sweet and boozy, prolonged sourness, and lots of cool sweet citrus, grassy bitterness. Quite nice for a tripelish brew.
