I can’t recall having as much difficulty with a corked and caged bottle as I had with this one. Perseverance paid off and we were greeted by a attractive glass of marmalade-orange color with a thick, frothy off-white head. The head dropped fairly soon leaving lots of lacing. The aroma of the Koningshoeven was a sweet fruitiness with yeast and mild pepper in the background. The flavor has fruit at the forefront; oranges and apples, and not overly sweet. Hop bitterness is restrained. There’s a very nice malt balance to the flavor with a slight pepper note added in the aftertaste. The 8% ABV was very well-masked in this Belgian triple. Mouthfeel is moderately thick and creamy. There’s just the right amount of refreshing carbonation.
Troebele honing geel biertje met een gemiddelde witte schuimkraag. Ruikt bloemig, gekruid en fruitig. Smaakt zoetig, bloemig o.a. honing, proef de koriander is zeer kruidig wat je op het eind in je neus proeft. En niet te vergeten fruitig met o.a. banaan en toch een redelijke bitter op het eind. Goeie tripel maar gaat zeker je dorst niet lessen door de vrij droge nasmaak. roruano (28) - Marília, BRAZIL - JUL 13, 2017
De cor mel, com boa presença de lúpulo, sabor frutado e doce-amargo. Harmoniza com carne de porco e frango, queijos azuis e cozinha mediterrânea. Luneylane (191) - Taipei City, TAIWAN - JUL 12, 2017
A bottle at the Cafe Bastille. Aroma: citrus fruits, some pineapple. Appearance: opaque honey-coloured, minimal head. Palate: full-bodied and thick, lively carbonation. Long and complex, predominantly bitter finish, though sweet. Taste: heavily bitter and fruity, well balanced. Some banana at the finish. Great beer. biir (1359) - Berlin, - JUL 5, 2017
