Hay color with a prominent hop aroma that melds with a hint of yeast. Slightly syrupy on the palate, but kept in balance by its effervescence. Paired with its sweetness is the barrage of hops that somehow works. An excellent beer.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Boldly bitter, but wears it well; like a more fruity (pear), more floral version of duvel.
- Nose: Fruit (pear? mango? lemon?) + flowers (buttercup?) = faintly marzipan?
- Body: Very small bubbles make their presence felt on tongue. Robust, bitter feel.
- Finish: A massive bitterness is working away at you, but the burn is ultimately a candied one.

Dorada clara, ligeramente turbia. Un dedo de espuma y efervescencia de tripel. Aroma malteado y cítrico. Carbonatación muy alta y mucho cuerpo. Tono alcoholico muy presente. Sabor potente, muy lupulado, floral y citrico en medio de gran efervescencia. Final muy amargo envuelto en gran calor. Hibrido tripel - ipa. Toda una copa.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draught @ Haket. Pours tiny hazy pale golden with a rather small white head that leaves some sparse trace on the glass. Smell is tiny malty, slightly fruity and tiny grassy with crackers, white bread, grapefruit juice, pears, marsipan, bubblegum, moist grass, pine needles, white sugar and lemon zest. Taste is sweet, slightly bitter and tiny fruity. Finish is sweet and tiny bitter with white bread, grapefruit, pears, marzipan, bubblegum, moist grass, pine needles, white sugar and lemon zest. Must confess this wasn’t what I was looking for but this is solid for what it is. Spicy and grassy with clear Belgian yeast bubblegum influence.

Yellow color, a bit hazy, with big white head. Smell is citrus and hoppy. Taste is fruity, lemonish, sweet from candi sugar but with a very nice bitterness coming soon later. Well bodied, alcohol well hidden, and easy to drink.
I really liked it!

33cl bottle at home from Mitra, Maarssen. Body is opalescent yellow, head is small, white, creamy, average lasting, good lacing. Nose is fruity, metallic, flavor is fruity, biscuit, banana, herbs, spices. Medium to heavy sweet, light bitter, light salty, light umami. Finish is medium sweet, light to medium hoppy bitter, acidic, heavy alcohol warmth. Full body, sticky texture, lively carbonation. A bit heavy, a bit too sweet like most of the strong belgian ales, not bad though.
