UPDATED: FEB 4, 2010 8.5% 33cl bottle bought in Belgium.
Weak, snowy head witha beautiful golden colour with bubble columns. Clear; looks almost like a pils.
Refreshing smell with orange, citrics and subtle peach and strawberry.
Bitter-sour taste with very little sweet. Dry finish.
The palate is grainy-watery with a bitter-sour taste which flows into the aftertaste without much change.... hints of banana. Metallic background. RichardGretton (4770) - Leicestershire, ENGLAND - JUL 5, 2007
Bottle. Golden beer with a very strong head. The aroma is lightly spiced and vinous and the flavour is quite bitter and yeasty spiced. Overall a reasonable beer. Maria (10211) - Thisted, DENMARK - APR 1, 2007
Golden with a lot of sediments and a huge head. The carbonation is rather high. The aroma has notes of fruit, sweetness, flower and alcohol. The flavour is lightly sweet and spicy with notes of fruit and flower, and it has a nice citrussy finish. A nice trippel, but I would like the alcohol less dominant. auderale (605) - Minot, North Dakota, USA - MAR 26, 2007
Cloudy golden colored pour with a medium sized head. Spicy, hoppy aroma with a nice bitter sweet hoppy finish. Not bad at all.
