Stupidly cheap bottle from Pidou, Calais. Pours a golden amber with good white head with lovely lacing. Smells of alcohol with faint floral undertones. Tastes of sweet floral grass with a long alcohol aftertaste. I actually rather like it!

Keukeman (109) - BEST, NETHERLANDS - DEC 9, 2016
Aroma: sweet malt, fresh, spicy aroma. appear: .33l bottle, really clear golden beer. Medium sized white head, didnt last very long. Taste: shallow, sweet flavour. Bitterness from the hop. Doesnt feel like a tripel. Does have a hint of spice, koriander maybe? Should have had some more spice. Palate: really strong carbonation, almost too much. Overall; not a bad beer. But definitely nothing special.

Zarrach76 (183) - Grenoble, FRANCE - DEC 7, 2016
Blonde dore bien transparente avec une mousse dense centrale et de grosses bulles. Nez sur les crales, le caramel, un petit ct pic, armes dagrumes trs discrets, alcool tangible, des notes de pain dpices, de vanille, de pomme cuite et de poire... Quelques notes aussi de crme de marron. Pas de grande complexit ni de particularit, un nez assez neutre quoique agrable. La carbonatation est assez soutenue, la texture huileuse, bien souple. Les saveurs en bouches sont plus intressantes que le nez. Les crales se rvlent enfin, ainsi que les houblons avec des armes de coriandre clairs. Bire assez sucre mais jamais curante. Les 7.5% sont largement suffisants et squilibrent bien avec le reste. On sent quelques malts un peu plus torrfis quon ne le supposerait, les levures galement qui donnent ce ct organique, champignon, bois et cuir. Lamertume est sobre mais longue, elle reste agrablement sur le final. Encore une fois pas une grande complexit, mais une bire sympathique, bien brasse et sans prtention. Bouteille 33cl, V&B Grenoble.
