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.

A smooth tripel, great rebound with mixture of sweetness, spice and a bit of carbonation (perhaps from the import?). More spirited than the Chimay blonde but more sugary than the average belgian blonde. Perfect combo with a caesar salad, anchovies, flatbread and a hot spring day.

Bottled 33cl. Color : hazy golden ale with very thick white head. Nose : yeast, yeast, and yeast (and some fruits too). Aromas : malt, yeast, alcohol. Interesting bitterness, medium texture, medium carbonation. One of the best beer of this style assuredly.

Big bottle from surdyks. Enjoyed with commonmac for beer 999. Beautiful gold with thick and extremely effervescent white head. Floral and yeast nose, some spice. Tangy, very effervescent mouthfeel. Light Belgian yeast, citrus, alcohol , some banana and non citrus fruit. Finish is just right. A really good beer.

Large bottle purchased at Surdyk’s and consumed as part of RateBeer 1,000 celebration with commonshawn. Poured into Moeder Lambic glass. Plenty of effervescence. Almost a full finger of white head on a slightly golden orange colored tripel. Aroma has some solid spicy characteristics and a funky quality. Taste is basically a great representation of a tripel. There is a nice fruity (banana) quality working well within a pleasantly spiced environment. Mouthfeel is very solid and probably helps enhance the overall rating. One of the better tripels on the market. They definitely didn’t westmalle it in.

Une triple vraiment agréable. Robe assez claire. De l’agrume et de l’acidité. Une valeur sure.

330ml Bottle (Pitcher’s, Västerĺs) - Golden with a white head and a slight haze. Banana, syrup, yeast and notes of citrus in the aroma. Fruity and moderately sweet taste with banana, lemon and yoghurt standing out along with some spicy notes in the finish.

Pours a straw yellow with a thick white foamy head. Belgian spice aroma. Fairly thick texture. Somewhat fruity taste but has a somewhat bitter and harsh finish.

Fules (477) - Gyöngyös, HUNGARY - JUN 4, 2016
Finom gyümölcsös illat. Szép világos szín, enyhe homályossággal. Erős gyümölcsös, fűszeres, komlós íz, ami mögött elbújik az alkohol. Kezdetben gyenge utóíz, ami később erősödik, de nem válik tolakodóvá. Testes sör.
