Grisza77 (456) - Poznań, POLAND - MAR 13, 2016
Bursztynowe, zamglone piwo o dość obfitej pianie, która z czasem redukuje się do pierścienia przy brzegu szkła. Aromat wspaniały, lekko słodki, owocowy, winny, trochę wiśniowy. W smaku także dość słodko i owocowo plus lekka ziołowość i wiśnia, jak na 12% to alkohol mistrzowsko ukryty. Goryczka średnia, szlachetna, raczej ziołowa. Ogólnie bardzo udane piwo, nie jest to typowy tripel tylko zawodnik cięższego kalibru, jakby imperialny tripel, bardzo mi podeszło to piwo.

Slow gusher, not quite a mess! Has a copper colour with thin head. Aroma is dry, woody and slightly boozy with some pear syrup and yeast. Flavour is quite sweet and syrupy. Some elements of stewed apples and honey.
