Bouteille 75 cl. Mousse à fines bulles relativement persistante. Robe : orange ambrée très belle. Nez : agrumes, ananas, malt, ... Goûts : orange, sucre en quantité adéquate, épices (poivre), amertume moyenne. Bière ronde, gouleyante et rafraîchissante. Un des tout bons produits de la brasserie.

Bottle at home. Clear golden colour with a rocky white head that subsides a little. Not a massive hop-bomb but the aroma is very attractive: resinous yet floral. The taste has the requisite tripel sweetness but this is backed with a huge bitterness. Flavours of yeast spicyness, vanilla and juicy malt and fruit. Rich mouthfeel, a slight sugary backtaste and a long bitter, dry finish. Reveals more nuances with every sip. Excellent.
