75 cl. bottle shared with Rick @ home, bought somewhere in Belgium. Hazy orange golden with a white head. Sweet fruity almost flowery aroma and taste, More a tripel than an Belgian strong ale in my opinion but either way a tasty beer. Svesse (8597) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - NOV 13, 2013
(Bottle, Brasserie Lombard, Brussels, 25 Oct 2013) Hazy golden colour with frothy, off-white head. Fruity, malty nose with bread, spices and dried fruit. Malty, fruity taste with notes of bread, dried fruit, bread spices and a gentle spicy bitterness in the finish. Almost full body, with a certain sweetness. Well made, balanced and tasty. Nice one. rodenbach99 (4572) - Longueuil, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 5, 2013
Bouteille de 750ml au Saint-Bock. Bière blonde dorée légèrement trouble qui a formé une superbe dentelle au parois. Un nez simple de malt pilsner un peu sucré. Le sucre candi fait des ravages. Des traces d’épices et de houblon noble sont perceptible. Une bouche un peu sucré mais tout de même bien appuyé par des houblons.

(Keg at Gastropub Tuulensuu, 20131030) The beer poured golden and hazy. Its head was medium sized and white. Aroma had fruitiness, honey and perfumes. Palate was medium bodied with medium carbonation. Flavours were fruitiness, honey, Belgian style yeast, clove, malts and harsh bitterness. Aftertaste was fruity and bitter. A bit harsh tripel but still ok. ruigo (2948) - PORTUGAL - OCT 21, 2013
15cl. at Brassigaume 2013. Pours hazy orange in colour with a nice white and persistent head. The aroma is sweet, fruity and with a light yeast touch. Medium carbonation and mouthful body. Flavour quite bitter but well balanced. Overall, a nice beer. sir__v (2629) - FRANCE - OCT 13, 2013
UPDATED: SEP 29, 2015 Color: hazy amber/blond beer with particles of yeast small, carbonation and small white head. Smell: sweet taste, very strange with malt and yeast. Taste: high malt domination with big yeast presence. No hoppy taste. Aftertaste: caramel, sugar cane and some alcohol with malt. tfredvik (1941) - Oslo, NORWAY - OCT 10, 2013
Cloudy orange body with a white head that laces the glass well. Moderate aroma with quite much malts, light yeast, fruits, alcohol and traces of caramel. A bit boring. The taste is moderate sweet, very light acidic and very light bitter. The flavours include some unusual (for the style) hoppy notes: the fruity notes are rather tropical with notes of peach. Also yeast and vague caramel. The alcohol is masterly hidden. Medium body and smooth texture despite the rather lively carbonation. Some dryness in the finish. Not terribly exciting, but still a decent brew. ClubGonzo (5670) - Bergen, NORWAY - SEP 30, 2013
[33 cl bottle, enjoyed 17 months before BB date, from Vinmonopolet Alna, Oslo]
Bottle from trade with Foffern (because apparently, Vinmonopolet was sold out and I was too late... :-P). Pours a dark hazy orange-straw-hued body with a large creamy off-white head. Nose is sweet grains, toffee, Belgian ale yeast and hints of clove and banana. Taste is very sweet and sugary grain-malt tones, clove, banana and hints of alcohol and raisins. Dry finish with a bit of stickiness in the aftertaste, along with warming alcohol. Medium body, medium to high carbonation. Not too bad, but a bit too sweet and not really impressive in any other way either.
