Bottle. Golden colour with a lasting white head. Aroma of alcohol, spice, lemon and some yeast. Flavour of spice and malt that ends in a warm alcoholic finish.

33 cL bottle. Pours hazy yellow with a light orange look and a collapsing white head. Very dry brett aroma. Flavour is light lemon/citrus flavoured - fresh and sweet. Sweet light caramel malt and light hoppy with a mellow Belgian yeast note into the finish. Nice.

The aroma is very sweet with notes of spices, lemon, oranges, and yeast. The color is a hazy orange and it has a beutiful huge though collapsing white head. The flavor is dominated by sweetness combined with a mixture of spices, I think corriander is one, a quite nice combination of sweetness and spicyness. In the middle the alcohol runs prickling over the tongue. In the end the spicyness turns woody dry with a slight hoppyness to it. The mouthfeel is a little thin in the beginning, but when the alcohol kicks in it is great. A quite nice beer - one of the better Triples on my tastebuds.

Bottle. Hazy yellow coloured with a huge white ehad. Aroma of fruits, yeast and spices. Flavour of fruits, yeats, spices, marzipan and alcohol. Disappointing.

Travlr (26946) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - JAN 27, 2011
Bottle. Amber color, medium off white head. Aroma of apple skins. Taste is a bit on the sweet side, summer fruits and caramel. Not bad.

18th May 2008. Crisp fizzy beer with a champagne like snap and dryness. It’s clean with a nice mild brandyish malt in the mid and the finish.

oh6gdx (26485) - Vasa, FINLAND - APR 27, 2006
Draught. A bit hazy yellow/golden colour with small, but longlasting white head. Aroma is strong citrus with hints of spices and yeast. Very sweet citrus (blood orange meets lemon and lime) flavour with some malty hints. Lots of fruit in aftertaste.

omhper (26039) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - MAY 26, 2003
Bottled. Golden coloured and very lively with rich head. Strong aroma of dried fruit and good, dry cider. Sweet and malty with clean, hard malt profile. The finish is drier and rounded, still fruity, and with grassy bitterness.

Papsoe (25054) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JUN 4, 2005
(Bottle 33 cl) Beautifully, hazy amber with a huge, pretty head. Extremely full-bodied with a potent alcohol-burn. Some vague spices, but the yeast adds most of the flavour. A solid but not very refined brew. 240197
