COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A strong, dry and spicy trappist ale. The product of a secondary fermentation lasting 5 weeks. This is a complex ale with a fruity aroma and a nice nuanced hop scent. It is soft and creamy in the mouth, with a bitter touch carried by the fruity aroma. An exceptional ale, with a great deal of finesse and elegance, and with a splendid long after taste.

Very, but, really very hazy golden color. You can’t even see your finger through the glass. It’s smell complexity. Departs from banana (strongly), goes to citrus hops, and lands to spicy (coriander for sure). It tastes what smells but more sourish. Not bad, but the carbonation gets you even if YOU do not want it. This aspect (medium-high carbonation) let me less excited. But in the overall it is a good Trappist. Thumb up!

BoostIPA (1188) - Pouring Bus, New York, USA - JUL 13, 2014
Pours a hazed yellow color with an enormous white head. Aromas of dry banana peel, lemongrass and basically the whole spice cabinet. Taste is spicy and very dry. Flavors - I’m getting a bit of dingy malt in there, perhaps some wet cardboard, along with all the aromas I described. A touch of alcohol as well. Very ester heavy. Finishes crackling dry with sharp carbonation and an alcoholic kick. Pretty good.

Alengrin (35) - BELGIUM - JUL 12, 2014
The ’mother of tripels’, the archetype of this genre, easily available in even the most depressing of night shops or train station bars, in my view one of the most classical of Belgian ales. Off-white, sticky, stable lacing, colour deep golden blonde, misty after adding the ’fond’. Malty, yeasty and fruity, warming aroma of grapefruit, apple cake, old cheese, gin, mango, banana, unripe pear, cloves, dried lemon peel, sour cream, white pepper; taste begins fruity in a dryish way, clear presence of curaçao, quite vivid carbonisation resulting in a dry effect, malty (honeyish, pilsener, caramel), supple and rich, aftertaste peppery hops with a lingering bitter as well as ’jenever’-like, warming alcohol, not disturbing. I do prefer the 75 cl version, however, which is noticeably softer and more elegant.

StueyD (1110) - Heacham, Norfolk, ENGLAND - JUL 9, 2014
A mid golden yellow coloured beer with a front white head. A light fruity aroma, tropical fruit, lychee, mango, plus a hint of dusty malt. Medium-dry mouthfeel. The taste starts off with a tart, tropical fruit flavour, with some sour yeasty flavours coming through. Then a sweeter, slightly cloying malt taste appears giving the all-round taste of boiled sweets! The finish is fruity. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Madsen1635 (203) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUL 6, 2014
Bottle. Hazy yellow/golden pour with lots of sedimentation and small white head. Aroma has sweet malt and yeast. Taste is sweet and very balanced. Lots of tasty notes but to sweet for my taste.

Shark_Pants (147) - AUSTRALIA - JUL 1, 2014
Pours a cloudy straw colour with a beautiful 3 finger white head. Aromas of belgian yeast, honey, spiced bread and tropical fruit. Taste includes lemon, malts, honey, spices. The fantastic yeast is very prominent straight up with the dry hops and peppery finish taking over the back end. A little booziness. Fairly full bodied. Excellent tripel.

Dzhigga (110) - Kirov, RUSSIA - JUN 29, 2014
Bottle. Orange hazy color with huge head. Aroma of fruits and yeast. Taste is complex with different notes. Full-bodied with the alcohol in the main role. Then goes bitter aftertaste. Not the fan of strong beer, but this one is definitely worth trying.
