33cl bottle. Orangish colour with a frothy off-white head with long duration. Aroma is spycy, caramel, yeasty and fruity. Flavour is sweet, good balanced, the alcohol percentage is not appreciable, yeast and citrus notes. The final is mild sweet with an alcoholic aftertaste. Carbonation is medium. Body is medium to high.

Scrapersnbeer (1439) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - DEC 17, 2012
Yeasty citrus, spice and grape aromas. Murky pumpkin color, fine tan head. Taste is a much darker mix than the scent: candied dark fruit, boozey brown sugar, and a touch of salt. Thick, fluffy and filling. Too heavy to be a tripel, too sweet to be a sour. Nice, kind of unique ale.

MrHangover (2146) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - DEC 4, 2012
Bottle. Pours a hazy amber coloured beer with a nice, off-white head. Aroma has yeastiness alongside some citric aromas as well. Really fresh and inviting. No alcohol detected. Flavour is sweet, yeasty esters and again fresh citric appearances are detected. Still no alcholo, wich a really good thing. Some malty notes are surely detected, delivering some sweetness into the balance. I would defintely classify this a tripel, giving the colour and taste.. Very nice brew..

craftycarl21 (2137) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - DEC 3, 2012
Draft at Churchkey. Hazy orange amber pour smallish head. Nose and flavor shine with notes of peach, plum, raisin, fig, bread, and hints of citrus fruit. Sweet but clean, not cloying. Pretty tasty stuff.

keepersj12 (2563) - Sicklerville, New Jersey, USA - NOV 11, 2012
Typical all around for the style. Candy sugar, spice, some fruit in the aroma and flavor. A bit more bitterness than expected. Lots of booze, maybe a bit too much.

erickok (3196) - Tours (and Paris), FRANCE - OCT 26, 2012
Cloudy amber body with off white, lasting head. Nice blend of fresh, modern and very forest-y hops with a Belgian clean yeast and mild caramel malt backup. Soft carbonation makes it a bit yeasty but pleasant to drink. Is just barely able to hide the alcohol, going a glowing warmth in the back. Fairly sweet and not as much raw hops as expected in the taste. That would have been nice. Modern aroma but old fashioned taste. Pretty expensive as well. (33cl bottle)
