sebletitje (6895) - Enghien, BELGIUM - APR 14, 2011
Bouteille 33cl Version plus alcoolisée des trois, utilisant toujours les mêmes ingrédients. Cette dernière m’a le plus déçu car en augmentant le niveau d’alcool, cette bière a perdu un peu du caractère que j’avais aimé dans la tripel et dubbel. Couleur dorée, col blanc/ocre épais. Arôme est épicé, malté avec légère note de miel et ce côté fleuri. En bouche, je trouve que le houblon Saaz ressort plus et donne à la bière une amertume renforcée par rapport aux deux autres versions. Epices sont là tout en restant discret et l’alcool se fait plus notable ce qui tend à prendre trop le dessus. Garde toujours en bouche, ce malt biscuité, levure et d’épices; cumin et coriandre. Le carvi donne cet aspect un peu liquoreux.

altonbrownd (3681) - Brussels, BELGIUM - APR 6, 2011
Bottle from Beer Planet. Glowing orange body with medium head. Nose of hops and oranges. Taste of malts, dark fruits but high ABV quite noticeable. Bit queer tasting.

Abio (1628) - Waasland, BELGIUM - MAR 30, 2011
Orange coloured beer with a good big head that holds ok. Smell is sweet, spiced and yeasty. Not bad. Taste is a bit dry-earthy spiced, yeasty, light sweet. Hops gets trough pretty good, but not totally my beer.

Fin (7684) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - DEC 21, 2010
Bottle at Kerstbier Festival, Essen, Belgique, 18.12.10 Soft in the mouth, wonderful nose, loads of honey and spice (cumin?) touch boozy at times, lovely beer. Rating is far from great but stood up getting barged by people so best I could do under the circumstances. One of my favourite beers of the weekend. A8 A3 T8 P4 Ov16 3.9

13/12/2010 - 33cl bottle @ home

Pretty clear deep orange to light copper red beer, thick stable creamy white head, long lasting, adhesive. Aroma: wax crayons, fruity, sweet malts, a touch of tropical fruits, aromatic hops, hint of yeast, alcohol on warming up. MF: nice carbon, medium body, soft texture. Taste: hop bitters, alcohol, spices. Aftertaste: dry and bitter, sour, chemical. A little like strong spirit drink. Pepper in the back of the throat.

JorisPPattyn (8032) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - DEC 12, 2010
Yellowish, dense & very even head over amber-orange beer with fine pearling. White candi sugar or oxydized honey and a light-sweetish aroma as from a fine liqueur, then a mix of old wood and preserved citrus. And if I didn’t know better, I’d hazard Brettanomyces. Ends on Leidse, hard cheese spiced with cumin. Taste is sweet, alcoholic, and has a background of fine bitterish spicing, that is near exotic: ginseng, carraway, cumin, ginger, but finely balanced. Vinous, liqueurish and excellent. Well-carbonated, slight viscous-oily MF, alcoholwarming, adn at least medium-bodied. One thing: it’s too sweet, too spiced and not enough attenuated to be called a tripel. As a strong Belgian blond ale, it’s a monument. Dirk, this one deserves to become a classic!!
