14.2.2014. Aroma reminds of combination of hefeweiss and trippel, belgian yeast, citrus, caramel sweet banana, sahti-like. Taste is similar which is good. Belgian yeast, fresh lemon hops, caramel sweetness, and finish also hops among sweetness. Alcohol warms. Vili (245) - FINLAND - FEB 8, 2015
30cl draught. Dark brown and rose pour with thin gold head. Aroma is malty, caramel, raisin and vanilla. Taste is full, medium bitter and somewhat sweet. Alcohol is present but not too aggressive. Oily palate, low carbonation. Aftertaste is malty sweet, but not sugary. Quality product, a Finnish take on Belgian trippel. Kauge (1957) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JAN 24, 2015
Bottle as a gift from Finland. No BB date. Dark murky amber colour with a small big-bubbled head. Retains and somewhat laces but there’s very little of it. The second pour gives a lot more though. Nose is the usual Belgian yeast, white bread dough, overripe peaches and plums, and a tiny bit of laurel- and coriander-like spiciness (pork stew comes to mind), a bit herbal even. It’s not really inviting. Taste follows suit. Mild fruity and caramelly sweetness, a bit of herbal bitterness and spiciness in the finish. Cardboard-like skunky malts. Minerals. Sweet side of the Strong Belgian scale. A lot of body covering the alcohol, although later on it does break through. Carbonation moderate and thin. I can’t consider this a good-tasting beer. Overall it’s very disappointing for a strong “Belgian”. Ceci n’est pas une Belge, jep. Florya (2023) - Oslo, NORWAY - JAN 20, 2015

Clear, copper colour and tan head. Aroma has caramel and citrus. Slightly bitter taste, ends with something yeasty and sour. Soft mouthfeel, medium carbonation. It’s a bit weak for a belg, kind of disappointing. Borup (14485) - Albertslund, DENMARK - JUN 29, 2014
