Cloudy gold pour with a thin head. Lots of lace left behind. Creamy mouth. Banana aroma. Taste is a little metallic. Some strange after taste in the yeast.

Sampled from a bottle from Utobeer in Borough Market. Hazy golden amber colour with a foaming white head. Aromas of malt and yeast. The malt flavvour is powerful and attractive with sweet notes of brioche and fruits. Lots of yeasty flavours and plenty of a grassy and herbal bitterness. A delicious and complex beer.

33cl bottle at home (26 X 2017), shared with LordZippo. Quite a hazy, good looking triple, yellow-orange-almost-golden coloured brew with towering, snowy collar, white and cloudy. This classic tripel is beautifully hopped with five kinds of hops, making up for a herby-mild and enjoying character. Such a cheerful brew. A sweet honey nose accompanies different grainy, wheaty flavours. Appealing for sure. Fritzy mouthfeel with dry and herby dashes. Great all round palate, warming alcoholic feeling, dry ending. There is some 'fraicheur' in there as well, resembling rather minthy notes - vanilla even. Sugar, grassy and almost fruity features add to the strong ale tasting experience. Great sour-dry-hoppy-sweet balance. Subliminal64 (222) - London, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 22, 2017
Where Purchased: 347ml bottle from a mixer pack from the LCBO
Consumed: from a Gouden Carolus chalice
Aroma: Smells fainlty hoppy and malty.
Appearance : unfiltered medium gold with lots of head that last to the last drop. Excellent sticky lacing. Bits of yeast floating and then settling.
Taste: the head it BITTER, but the beer is well balanced. Its a hopped Belgian dubble or triple. Not 50 IBU, but possibly 30.
Palate : medium body. Bitter and slight sweet aftertaste. Great carbonation.
Overall: very well balanced. I was nervous to try, especially taking some head off and finding it bitter (beer barely fits in their glasses). I was glad to try abd will seek out this, and the other beers in the mixer again. MB. The Beer "Bear"on.

-great head retension
-medium carbonation visible
-medium to high carbonation
-light to medium body
-slight alcohol noticeable
This certainly deserves the title "Belgian IPA".A big blast of grassy bitterniss hits you once you taste it.
A really good combination of Hoppy+Belgian characteristics.

Maltosos y cereales con toques dulces ligeramente afrutados. Cuerpo medio algo espumoso y cierta densidad, fino. Bastante buena para repetir. Piepenhenrich (1230) - Steinbach, GERMANY - AUG 26, 2017
Very good distinctive hoppy flavor, which gives this Belgian Ale a new aspect, that became much more popular lately. Which I highly appreciate. JaKeAFC (1283) - ITALY - AUG 25, 2017
Yellow color, hazed, big white creamy head, infinitely persistent. Big hoppy smell. Aroma of fresh pale malts and lots of resiny hops, very ’green’. Spiced yeast, green apple, some cider and white wine, likely champenoise fermentation? Very tasty, citrus and tart still maintaining a nice sweetness and strong bitterness. Finish quite dry, perfumed, with solvent tones as abv is quite high, but not distracting. Very very nice, crisp, sparkling, liked a lot.
