HoppedLuc (9) - - SEP 8, 2011
UPDATED: MAY 3, 2012 Bottle: Big frotty white head, that disappears slow, on top of a golden beer. Smell is a sweet and spicy mix of malts fruit and yeast. Taste is a soft and smooth mix of malts, caramel, hops, citrus, yeast, spices, herbs and a slight hint of alcohol. Low to medium carbo, soft mouthfeel, medium body and a light creamy texture.

Evilman (183) - Taverny, FRANCE - FEB 21, 2017
I really enjoyed this one. Strong alcohol level and interesting taste. Rather sweet palate for such beer, a good and hoppy taste, small hints of honey and deep aftertaste... Surprisingly easy to drink and very pleasant! A very pronounced head however, beware, mine was quite nervous when I opened it. A pretty good surprise, totally APPROVED BY TAVERNYS BLACK METAL CREW!

Bijl (401) - NETHERLANDS - FEB 8, 2017
Ambergeel, witte schuimkraag, ongefilterd, troebel, iets koolzuur. Aroma: Kruidig, koriander, appel, peer, fruitige esters vanuit de gist en zoetig. Smaak: Heerlijk fruitig, peer, karamel zoet en mouten, kruidigheid van kruidnagel, gist, heel licht bitter, aardig wat alcohol warmte. Body is medium , licht koolzuur, prikkelig maar ook weer zacht mondgevoel, afdronk is kruidig en fruitig zoet. Gewoon goed.

sulawang (1116) - - FEB 7, 2017
Visual: Pours dull copper brown-orange with a small 1cm foamy head, super clusters upon clusters of active streams, suspended sediment - glorious.

Nose: yeasty funked out lagered barley malt, with honey notes (lvl-7)-pungency

Attack: crisp-thicker, micro-tingly

Mid-palate: smooth-rounded, alcoholic weighty, almost salty, (lvl-6)-sweetness, honey-chamomile barley malts, off-putting date note,

Finish: clove-banana exhale, nutty cocoa malt, soft bittersweet residual malts

Summary: Visually - great, 10% ABV - wow. The mouthfeel and texture are delightful but I just didnt appreciate the almost salty note in the mid as well as the dark nutty date flav in the mid to finish; Somehow the honey/floral didnt match up correctly for my palate.

simontomlinson (149) - Blackburn, Lancashire, ENGLAND - JAN 20, 2017
Off white frothy head left a good cover on a rich orange coloured, highly effervescent body. Sweet citrus, orange & spice aroma. Medium bodied, airy on the palate, soft, then a prickle down the throat. Orange, spice, sweetish to the fore followed by long bitter aft.

Aukedebier (21) - KAUTTUA, FINLAND - DEC 28, 2016
Bought from drankdozijn.nl in a 750 ml bottle with cork. Appearance: nice golden beer, bit hazy with a full white head. Nose: Fruity and fresh with light colored malts. Taste: mild Belgian yeast and esters. Nice and fresh beer with the hop aromas on the end. Well balanced between bitter and sweet. I taste almost some Belgian white beer. Nice composition. Like it!

kaserov (421) - Oviedo, SPAIN - NOV 2, 2016
Color dorado claro, translcido (ms turbio cuando te acercas al final de la botella), con capa de espuma blanca de dos dedos de grosor (buena retencin). Carbonatacin muy presente. Aroma floral y alcohlico, como si alguien hubiera cogido una serie de flores y las hubiera sumergido en alcohol. Estilo perfume pero placentero. El sabor es frutal (hacia el final de la botella pude darme cuenta de que destaca mucho el pltano) con un toque alcohlico y un final amargo muy interesante. No es de mis Tripel preferidas, pero su calidad queda fuera de toda duda.

jbruner (4408) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - OCT 17, 2016
Pours a hazy golden brown from the bottle with bubbly white head that leaves good lace, surprisingly light for a abt. Aroma of big fruity Belgian esters and a hint of boozy sweetness. Taste follows, if you close your eyes you might actually mistake it for a regular quad. Booze is really well hidden, good stuff.
