330ml bottle from Beernavigator

BBE 12/04/16 - Pours dark orange with a foamy white head. Aroma of caramely malts, sweetish notes, grassy hops, hints of fruits. Taste is sweet, malty and sticky with notes of fruits and grassy hops. Finish is grassy, malty and sweetish with warming notes. A bit unbalanced, too sweet and sticky.

330ml bottle @Cervezorama. Malty caramel, phenolic aromas. Medium body and average carbonation. Taste is crispy, mild bitter. Enjoyable.

UPDATED: MAR 30, 2013 330ml bottle (Kaisla, Helsinki)
pleasant sweet fruity aroma, a little syrupy. Sweet amaerican syruppy IPA style malts, but with a belgian kind of attempt at sophistication. Does have plenty of fruity hops in the taste, but the syruppy malts are too much. Chewy palate, almost slick, and with harsh carbonation. Bitter bite in the finish reinforces the carbonation, but is otherwise nice. Theres even some sweet ginger sweeties in the finish. I do like ginger, but I dont expect those chinese sweeties in a beer. Hard to rate, it could be 3.0 from some sips, it could be 3.5 from others. Adequate, certainly, and a little quirky.

Mid orange, healthy creamy head. Fruity, Anna identifies it as soft peach. Occasionally a waft of too much alcohol. Palate is so smooth, but with the sugars and alcohol its a bit heavy in places. Certainly fits in with the bell-curve of experiences from the bottle, but doesnt have the same highs that that had.

podey (637) - New York, New York, USA - JAN 27, 2013
UPDATED: JUN 28, 2013 Have had this both in 330ml bottle and draft at BXL East. Pours beautiful golden orange with thick, slightly off-white head. Amazing lacing. Aroma is more hop forward with some citrus and Belgian yeast in the background. Taste is a balance between big hops and a bit of yeast. Finishes slightly bitter and lingers on the palate.

Quelle merveille que ce travail dans cette bire Magma. On pourrait dire une bire progressive (pour voquer le groupe de musique franais de lpoque), et cest bien le cas, parce quelle est un mariage technologique (je nai pas dit techno!!) entre une IPA amricaine et une triple belge. Une bire inventive donc, qui est une russite magistrale dans ce monde difficile de linnovation intressante en matire de bire . Les brasseurs en question sont 4 ingnieurs de haut vol, et font preuve dun esprit daventure bien inspir. Cette magma ravira tous les amateurs de spciale, pas dans lancien sens du terme, mais dans le sens des microbrasseries. Ici ce sont plutt des microinventeurs avec lappui de la structure ultra-moderne de la Proef Brouwerij. Bref, regardons la bouteille: trs jolie criture gothique pour le nom Troubadour, instrument de musique du moyen-ge ( lpoque des troubadours...) et devise o se mlent bire et musique cerevesia et musica laetificant cum hominis. Quon se le dise Niveau alcoolique: 9% abv. On ne plaisante pas chez les troubadours (sans jeu de mots...) . Couleur ambre claire allant sur le roux brun caramel. Clart nette. Bulles trs trs fines par gerbes au centre et partout. Mousse beige assez haute, puis nappe bien en crme la bire . Armes de lgumes, carottes, raisins secs, candi et une pointe de Pre Blanc. Volume trs doux sans aller au soyeux. 1re bouche sur le whisky speyside, et lgre tourbe, arrire-bouche amre sur le houblon fin. 2me bouche sur la pomme de terre des polders, labricot et un peu dpices douces. 3me dans laquelle le whisky revient en force, avec de la bruyre et une pointe de violette. La longueur est superbe. La levure souple et soyeuse est magnifique. Lalcool est progressif (encore) et trs bien dos. La finale est riche, fruite mais avec du bois de ft larrire. Quel chef doeuvre concoct chez de Proef qui nous gratifie dune preuve internationale hors catgorie.

This is how I like my dubbels: rich and warm, drying on the finish, yeasty aromas and floral notes, with a bit of citrus on the finish. Really good, and worth the nine percent alcohol for the way it moves the palate from point to point: yeast, hops, malts, alcohol, leaving you with a hint of hops on the finish.

Muy gratamente sorprendidos por este tipo de "barley wine" belga. De color feo y muy turbia, excesivamente gasificada. Desprende un rico aroma a lpulo probablemente americano. Trago largo para una cerveza muy bebible, sabor a malta y frutos secos de inicio, final amargo y seco poco habitual en una belga. Un amargo persistente que invita a acabarse la copa y repetir. Muy muy buena.

Not too big on the creamyness of a Belgian beer in an IPA a little harsh for my palate not a beer I would drink everyday but its ok
