Blonde spéciale houblonnée, et comme dit le brasseur « rare quality brew ». On a placé la barre à 9,5 % abv. (on veut ou on ne veut pas....). Couleur blond doré foncé. Clarté nette . Bulles fines très vivantes partout. Mousse blanche épaisse bien crémeuse en haut. Arômes de pomme, poire, houblons très fins, avec une pointe de citron et de camomille. Texture soyeuse, quasi veloutée. 1ère bouche de houblons très fins et céréales. Arrière-bouche entière, fine, et de très grande longueur. 2ème bouche de houblons et malts fins, avec une pointe de banane verte. 3ème de grande fraîcheur, bouche pleine et malt en fond. Longueur très belle, constante avec des alternances entre les houblons. Levure adéquate, précise. Alcool très bien dosé, de haut niveau. Pour la finale, on clôture en finesse... Très grande bière parce qu’elle répond parfaitement au lourd cahier des charges qu’elle s’était donnée. 5. (son premier...)

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.

Pours golden-blonde with a ton of sediment and a modest fine white head. Nose is earthy hops, light fruits, and bread. Basically a tripel that leans slightly hoppy, this is a well-balanced, mostly malt based golden belgian ale. Finish is long and sticky. Good stuff.

Cervesa molt correcte, es tracta d’una triple de tota la vida però més amarga. Cerveza muy correcta, se trata de una triple de toda la vida pero mas amarga.

vincentvega72 (157) - Terneuzen, NETHERLANDS - NOV 3, 2015
Mooi goudblond troebel bier met mooie witte schuimkraag die goed aan het glas blijft plakken. Aroma van citrus, gerst, hooi, beetje gras. Voor een hopbier smaakt deze eerder romig dan bitter, neigt meer naar een tripel. Zeer vol in de mond met een licht fruitige afdronk (geel fruit). Topbier.

Tiago_Miranda (12) - Lisboa, PORTUGAL - SEP 13, 2015
UPDATED: SEP 29, 2015 Sweet aroma. Don?t noticed the floral aroma of hops. Strong presence of alcohol dominates all other flavours. Bright golden with white head.

Uma Belgian Strong Ale que tinha tudo para ser uma bela cerveja, mas que pela grande presença do álcool, atrapalha o sabor.
