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.

330ml Bottle. Was rather explosive on opening!! Despite the champagne effect on opening, it poured a white head that quickly vanished to a medium lacing., The beer itself is a orange amber and rather cloudy (the eventful opening negated leaving it stand for a week). Its aroma is yeast but with strong hints of orange and spices. Its aroma is very much mirrored in its taste, yeast, sweet alcohol, orange spices and a very strong smoky finish. By no means a session beer but a very drinkable triple.

Blonde dorée, dépôt en suspension forte effervescence (tant au palais que de vue), col fin mais persistant, plutôt huileuse. Bel équilibre, la légère amertume restant bien présente en arrière-goût, notes d’épices et de bananes.

Erzengel (2341) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - JUN 9, 2013
33cl bottle. dunkelgelb und trüb im Glas, sehr fester leicht beiger Schaum. Der Antrunk ist weich-mild, hefig ausgewogen. Ganz leicht alkoholisch, aber nicht störend. Im Hauptteil kommen tolle Aromen von Banane und Nelke hinzu, die ideal mit den typischen Tripel-Aromen in Frische und Milde harmonieren. Der Nachgeschmack ist lang und weich, Karamell, Banane, vielleicht auch Birne. Und natürlich auch Hefe. Die Herbe ist sehr zurückhaltend und nur im letzten Teil des Nachgeschmacks deutlich spürbar. --> ein tolles Tripel!!

Bought a bottle at Bert’s Bierhuis. Aroma of citrus fruits, bananas and some spices. Has a hazy golden/blond color, has a soapy white head, which doesn’t stay long, and is well carbonated. Taste is little spicy and has a medium bitterness, also in the aftertaste. A well balanced complex tripel, but Bernardus Tripel from this brewer is just a little better.
