Capped 750 from Wine & Cheese in Clayton, MO. Pours brassy gold with a 4 finger foamy off-white head. Aroma is fruity Belgian ale. Too complicated for me to pick out individual smells. Flavor of yeast/spice with low key banana; dry, fruity, spicy and lightly bitter finish.

Bottle, bought @Saveur Bire. Pours clear pale golden with a small, creamy white head. Aroma has sweet malts, sugar, doughy, light citrus. Medium carbonation, fine dry and quite creamy mouthfeel. Flavour has good malts, light doughy, mild sugar, mild astringent with some apple and citric acid notes. Lingering, quite bitter finish.

[thank you, Yespr]
Pours a hazy pale yellow with a frothy/bubbly white head. Aroma is sweet with light yeast and some alcohol. Fine mouthfeel. Flavour is nice, rather tripel-ish, light tartness with exotic fruits.

KW92 (1469) - Warszawa, POLAND - JUL 21, 2015

WYGLĄD: Barwa złota, klarowne. Piana drobna, średniej wysokości, trwała.
AROMAT: Mało intensywny. Owocowy. Dojrzałe jabłko. Dzikość belgijskich drożdży.
SMAK: Słodowy. Owocowy posmak. Końcwka alkoholowa - przyjemna, rozgrzewające.
OGLNIE: Brakuje intensywności. Jak na piwo 9 procentowe, to powinno ono "atakować" rżnymi aromatami, a wy tym przypadku tak nie jest.

jamaty (2095) - Madrid, SPAIN - JUN 11, 2015
Ambar clara, algo turbia y muy burbujeante. 1-2 dos de espuma poco densa. En boca es muy efervescente. Excesivamente. El resto es malta, mezcla de dulce y amargo y algn tono herbal. Final seco y amargo. Decepcionante.

susonagger (202) - spain, - MAY 13, 2015
Cerveza de abada, tipo tripel, 9 % de alcohol, de alta fermentacin y con segunda fermentacin en botella. Como su nombre indica, la Augustijn Grand Cru es la versin tripel de la Augustijn Blond: siendo ms fuerte, en graduacin alcohlica y amargor, que luce un color dorado haciendo honor a su fama de ser una de las maravillas en el firmamento de las cervezas belgas. Su aroma afrutado, tpico de una triple, combina con su pronunciado amargor debido al abundante uso de varios tipos de lpulo y esa magnifica combinacin se perfecciona durante la segunda fermentacin en botella, donde se forma de manera natural esa grandiosa capa de espuma.
