Belgian ale au malt dorge et froment, avec les pices du gruut, qui titre 8,5% abv. Couleur dor intense brillant. Clart nette. Bulles fines par milliers comme les toiles dans le ciel. Mousse blanche trs paisse avec une texture duf battu en haut. Armes de malt clair et grill, herbes, fruits blancs, avoine. Superbe. 1re bouche souple, trs belle, malte et pice. Arrire-bouche bien marque, avec des fruits blancs mrs. 2me bouche qui samplifie, avec un vin blanc moelleux sur le malt. Arrire-bouche trs riche, complexe, herbes et pices. 3me sur le malt grill et pices, avec de la complexit. Arrire-bouche longue, large, trs complexe. La longueur donne du pain dpices, crumble, bouquet garni, etc. Les jambes sont bien soulignes. La levure est douce, fine, prcise, trs belle veine. Lalcool est parfait pour soutenir lensemble. La finale est trs belle avec de nouvelles nuances. CONCLUSION: une vraie bire pour vrais amateurs. Got bien personnalis, investissement en matires et en process. Bravo Gand.

33 cl. fles @ t Antwaerps Bierhuiske ingeschonken in een Gruut glas lichter gouden, lichtjes maar echt wel lichtjes wazig, aanzienlijk grote witte kraag, moest eerst gewoon kraag drinken. De ingredinten lijst verraad hop wat dit dus geen echte gruit maakt. Ruikt naar pittige esters, hooi, zachte citroen, kruidige gist wat BE hop, graan, gemengd met zoete zachte banaan. Smaak is tevens een combinatie van kruidige gist, witter peper en hooi op het einde, graan, lichte zachte citroen op het einde, kruidige, lichte floraal BE hop, kruiden met wat zoete banaan maar minder dan in de geur, lichte witte suiker. Lichtjes droog, gemakkelijk te drinken zie niet echt wat het probleem hier is. Niets mis met deze een lekker, kruidige en gemakkelijk te drinken Belgisch bier.

(Botttled) Gigantic creamy head lives peacefully above glowing yellow streams of vibrant yeasty liquid. The nose speaks of flowery hops ,green apple and perfume. Quality Belgiumthat I could happily drink till I cant remember my name.

Icedwarf (1512) - Etten-Leur, NETHERLANDS - DEC 28, 2014
Helder geel bier met schuim. Smaak is droog en licht zoet met sporen van ananas en caramel Apart, maar goed bier, smaak blijft lang hangen.

0.33L bottle. Pours a clear pale with big, fluffy white head that lingers. Unique aromas that are sweet and fruity:. Apple and pear, alcohol, vanilla, tobacco. Sweet vanilla up front with cereal grain, slowly morphs into a subtle, herby bitterness that cuts the malt, finishing with warm alcohol in the throat. Medium body with a creamy and oily mouthfeel; really very smooth drinking. Overall, some interesting things going on with this beer. On the sweeter side, but overall balances well and really nice mouthfeel.

330ml bottle (Stockmann, Tallinn)
7 Upon openning, theres initially a sweet ripe berry fruitiness, but on pouring, much more citrus comes out. Some maltiness, but also quite a barky bitterness too. After a big swirl there was even some banana.
4 Opened with a nice pop and a waft of CO2. Pale gold, large spongy head settles to a small layer. Initially poured clear, added the yeast half way through.
7 Lovely slightly yeasty light grainy body. Hops are barky and bitter. Enough residual sugars to balance the bitterness. Feels serious, but not aggressive. Alcohol hides behind the bitter bite. Adding all the yeast fills out the breadiness of the grains.
4 Full palate, even fuller when the yeast is added, fizzy carbonation. Needed to swirl and swirl and swirl this to flatten it to a level where it could happily sit on my tongue for me to savour. Finish sweet light grains at first, blending seemlessly into a really potent bitter tingle that mellows to a lovely fresh whole green hop grassy resin. That makes up for the fizz easily.
15 Lovely tripel. Very much reminds me of the Steenberge Hopduvel Gentse Tripel. However, theyve pushed this up to 9%, and still kept it a lovely drinkable beer. No flaws, this is right up there as a classic tripel.
