COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Mainly available Bottle Conditioned. Has appeared on cask occasionally.
Full bodied Maris Otter malt with a small addition of wheat and Vienna malt are aromatised by a typical Belgian charge of coriander. The result is a smooth, sweetish, luscious and fruity experience. The peach and orange notes of the malt base are enhanced by the judicious use of a single American hop, centennial. A very satisfying beer with a Belgian character.

Shared a bottle (50cl) with Huub at the end of the beernight. A good tripel, not the sweetness of some Belgian tripels, but a bitterness in it. Liked it! Thanks Huub for a special evening!
