Dieses hochwertige Starkbier ist nach Heinrich Fluitter benannt, der um 1470 mit der aufstellung eines Gnadenbildes den Grundstein zur Erstehung der Abtei Mariawald legte. Fluitter wird nach Originalrezeptur der Trappistenabtei Mariawald von der Bitburger Brauerei in Bitburg/Eiffel gebraut und abgefüllt. Die Abtei Mariawald ist das einzige Kloster der Trappistenmönche in Deutschland. Bis in de 1960er Jahre würde hier Bier gebraut, die Produktion dann aber eingestellt. Fluitter hat als unfiltriertes obergäriges Starkbier einen Alcoholgehalt von neun Volumenprozent.

UPDATED: JUL 18, 2016 Flesje is gekocht in de Mariawald abdij bij Heimbach. Op de bodem ligt een laag bezinksel dus voorzichtig ingeschonken. Gouden kleur en een mooie witte kraag die lang blijft liggen. Ruikt gistig en fruitig. De smaak is zacht, gist , beetje bitter, wat meer zoet, sinaasappel, vaag kruidig. Afdronk is ook zacht. Goed te drinken maar eigenlijk iets te zoet en te zacht voor mijn smaak. Re-rate. Het flesje eens een jaartje laten liggen en het smaakt iets anders. Pittiger, moutiger en een wat branderige alcoholische afdronk. Ruikt ook wat alcoholischer en fruitiger. Voller van smaak.Het is er beter op geworden vind ik.

Benzai (15623) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - MAY 5, 2017
Bottle @ home shared with Dutchdrebus and Thompson. Clear dark orange golden color, medium sized white head. Smell and taste are both quite awful: very herbal, very sweet, sweet honey and a foul aftertaste that I can’t really describe. Bleh. Wasted money.

UPDATED: APR 23, 2017 Bottle. Color: Gold to amber, white head. Taste: Medium sweet, yeasty, some hopbitter notes, hints of caramel and sugar. On the sweet side, but overall a pretty good German beer.

Zlotta (3290) - Hagen / Düsseldorf, GERMANY - FEB 9, 2017
0.33 l bottle from ’Craftbeer.de’, best before May 2017. Clear, amber, quite a few chuncs floating, with a medium large, frothy, almost stable, off-white head. Sweetish, perfumy, slightly yeasty-spicy aroma of caramel, orange jam, dried apricot, candi sugar and some honey. Rather sweet, sugary, perfumy and yeasty-spicy taste of honey, orange jam, peach, vanilla, candi sugar, some clove and a bit of caramel, followed by a long, slightly bitter, yeasty-spicy, quite boozy and almost peppery finish. Medium to full body, slightly creamy and a bit effervescent mouthfeel, average carbonation. So finally got to try the German ’trappist’. Not bad actually, but quite boozy, maybe better with some age on it. Overall not a good Tripel though.

Danke an WillemsUrenkel und kappldav! Riecht süßlich, getreidig, Honig, leichte Alkoholnote. Start süß. Mitte herb-süßlich. Abgang Brot, süßlich, herb. Geht so.

0,33 l bottle from kappldav123. Thanks a lot mate! Okay, little bit over the BB date, maybe one years plus ... Sweet grain, some malt in the nose, bready. Hidden alcohol. Not really complex, like a little bit stronger "Landbier". Can not really convince.

fkoolen (1220) - Maastricht, NETHERLANDS - MAR 3, 2016
Bottle at home. Cloudy orange colour, offwhite creamy head. Peach, orange, firm malty grainy, bready and sweet tones, quite alcoholic. Not too balanced. Firm body, medium carbonation.

Wixie (589) - BELGIUM - NOV 28, 2015
Hazy ochre liquid, large head. Aroma of hops and fruits. Medium body, average carbonation. Taste is bitter and fresh.
