COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bottle conditioned.
Ingredients: Water, barley malt, sugar, hops, yeast.
The aroma of this beer is agreeably gentle and is carried by a discreet bitterness while the balance between the malt and hops relies on fruity accents and a lightly fresh aftertaste.

750 ml bottle. Pours a very flakey golden-straw with a resilient, thick white head. Aroma is honey, malt, vanilla. Flavor is honey, brown sugar, vanilla, pear. Finish is herbal, dry. Medium body, average carbonation. Somewhat disappointing.

jkwood04 (4367) - Connecticut, USA - NOV 25, 2014
11.2oz bottle in a stemless glass. Pours deep golden with a lacy, white head. Aroma of spicy yeast, pale and caramel malts, hints of light fruit, some herbal/minty notes, and light floral hops. Flavor the same with a nice blend of everything. Average texture. A solid tripel.

En bouche c’est équilibré, amertume légère. Rien d’exceptionnel, mais elle se déguste comme une bonne bière belge. Elle fait le boulot.

330 mL bottle. Hazy yellow. Small white head. Grainy tripel. Medium body. Nothing exciting.

Shines canola yellow in the glass with a tight bubbled foam cap that snaps & crackles. This is pulled from the LCBO six pack sampler for us thirsty Canadians & I can tell you how much I’m enjoying this purchase (especially after my last 6 pack sampler of bitters from England that underwhelmed me in so many ways). This brew is champagne like in its crispness, starts off candy shop style but as the pour settles it takes on a more tart aspect. Carbonation is more lively than a crackhead looking for rocks. This is great & I’d love to see what my main man Helsdon -- he who drinks beer with me & marries Belgian women -- says about this.
