750ml corked bottle of St. Stefanus Grand Cru from Monoprix Department Store, Grasse, France. 750ml. Hazy golden with a very large white head. It has a powerful warming lemon, peach and apricot flavour with spices on the warming boozy finish. A little too much alcohol is evident.

Blonde claire très trouble. Nez : agrumes très présents : citron, zeste et pulpe.Quelques senteurs levurées en arrières. En bouche, corps discret, notes agrumes, citronnées, peu de grain, peu de levures. Intéressant bien qu’assez mono arôme : citron, agrume.

tennisjoel (1484) - Rochester, Minnesota, USA - MAR 29, 2016
Thanks to my brother-in-law for sharing. Pour is golden with an ample white head. Clove more than banana and lemon zest and other citrus flavors. Flavor is standard tripel palate is a little rough around the edges. Not terrible, there are better examples.

SkillsFactory (738) - ITALY - FEB 27, 2016
Invecchiata 21 mesi, aperta il 27 Febbraio 2016. Dorata lievemente pallida, leggermente velata, schiuma bianca di buona persistenza. Aroma lievemente lattico, miele e chiodi di garofano, leggera polpa d'arancia, lievito belga, leggera paglia. Al palato prevalgono i chiodi di garofano ed il miele con un finale erbaceo ed alcolico. Corpo medio-pieno, non molto carbonata.

330ml bottle bought in Carrefour in Brugge to drink at home. Pours well. Pale straw in colour with a creamy head which lasts well. Initially tastes quite hoppy but that soon leaves you with a slightly bitter and soapy lemon after taste that I don’t find unpleasant !
