RolkaNation (141) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - JUL 11, 2012
Bottle from De Bierkonig in Amsterdam. Pours a slightly murky yet effervescent dark golden, humongous frothy head. Yeast sediment floaties can be seen. Aroma is nice and reminiscent of a solid Belgian golden a la Duvel. Tart, yeast, spice, orange marmalade, hint of champagne. Very nice Well balanced and subtle. Soft and fizzy on the palate. Taste is on-point and full of more yeasty spice, fruits, and a slight hop bitterness. Sticky bittersweet finish with a hint of alcohol burn. Better than expected based on price and other reviews. A nice cross between a Belgian golden and a tripel.

Rating #804 - January 13, 2014 - Post work 33cl beer bottle from Coop - Trying to get through this review without a Robespierre joke. Clear golden pour with a bubbly white head that fades to a ring. Aroma is booze, grassy hops, and yeast. Palate is initially sweet and boozy, prolonged sourness, and lots of cool sweet citrus, grassy bitterness. Quite nice for a sourish tripel. Pity is treason. Damnit.
