Blonde trouble au col solide et persistant. Arôme de malt rôti, de fruits et de caramel. Idem au goût mais avec l’amertume en plus. Une très bonne triple mais je préfère leur quadruple.

freretoc (1908) - Besançon, FRANCE - OCT 26, 2013
Bu en bouteille de 33cl. Une couleur blonde qui pourrait presque penser à une petite Pils mais la mousse compacte est là pour donner l’indice de la bière d’exception. Une triple parfaite, une magnifique bouche après un nez explosif. On trouve des goûts citronnées très floral. Peu de goût malté, une réelle tuerie !

Bottle from beer merchants.com. Not had this for a good decade or two and wow, it’s outstanding. Pours a beautiful burnished orange, with a thick white head. Sweet peach and apricot aroma, palate is creamy and thick with yeasty banana notes, more of the aforementioned fruit, some lightly chalky bitterness late on. Slightly medicinal, alcohol is well masked and for 7pm on a Saturday evening, this is going down far too easily! Fantadtic.

sfuen03 (362) - Barcelona, SPAIN - OCT 12, 2013
Big creamy white head; dark amber hazy body. Cookies, bread, smooth fruits, hops and coriander. Medium body, oily texture; balanced finish, bitter than the average belgian. Nicely balanced, bitter than the usual in the style; spicy, cookies, sugar. Nice.

0.75 bottle this time, shared with a friend. Pours hazy copper-orange with a nice thick and bubbly head. Aroma: super fruity. Fantastic mix of dried apricots, white peaches and some (sourish) pear. Really nice, like a fruit pie in a glass. Taste: once again, a full-on fruit assault! Dried apricots, peaches in syrup, sultana grapes..We really should come up with the name for those: pale fruits? white fruits? You know, as opposed to omnipresent ’dark fruits’. Overall taste is definitely on a sweet side of things, but thankfully, it is well balanced by finish. which is typically ’triple’, with herbal notes and subdued dry bitterness. An excellent and distinctive triple, which really opens up in a 0,75 bottle.

Moebbels (785) - FINLAND - OCT 8, 2013
A hazy orange body is covered by a thin layer of white foam that laces nicely. The nose has raisins, yeast, malts, caramel, fruits and some floral notes. Taste is sweet with a mild dry aftertaste. The carbonation is very lively. Palate is rich and the alcohol warms your entire body. This is a nice one, especially good for warming you up during cold winter months.

Belle couleur trouble entre le doré et l’ambré. La mousse disparaît très vite et la bière ne pétille pas beaucoup, quelques petites bulles s’échappent du fond et puis c’est tout. Une belle odeur s’en dégage. Le goût amer frappé directement sans vraiment laisser le temps aux autres arômes de se démarquer mais apres quelques gorgées elle devient très agréable et on arrive a distinguer quelques aromes. L’amertume reste un petit temps en bouche pour notre plus grand plaisir.

Goud oranje kleurig bier. Volle stevige schuimkraag. Bitter zoete smaak, lijkt op een vleugje Duvel. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
