JDBaker11058 (2206) - Maryland, USA - MAY 15, 2011
Appearance: light hazy straw with a huge lingering fluffy white head. Aroma: fruity, herbal and feisty spices; sweet citrus. Taste: spicy and hoppy: cloves, parsley etc (maybe ginger?); warm alcohol; pretty bitter; some banana or pineapple. Finish: long, dry and bitter with the tiniest hint of sweet cereal at the very end. Notes: Clearly very complex and expertly brewed. Nice warming alcohol note without being overpowering. A little more sour/bitter than I like in my Tripels, but it really grew on me. Started at a 2.5 and finished at a 3.5 by the end of the glass. Good carbonation. Alcohol is well-hidden.

hauxe (757) - Butzbach, Hesse, GERMANY - MAY 18, 2017
Pours gold with a light haze. The white head soon fades. Aroma is bubblegum, apple juice, fresh dough, spice. Taste is mostly sweet but with a complex undertones: bubblegum, apple, plum, pepper, clove. An interesting mixture that works. The finish is long, dry, bittersweet, spicy, and warming. Body is medium with a nicely balanced carbonation. Excellent.

Bottle from Hofstetten: Aroma ist a nice mix of fruits, yeast and spices. Notes of oranges, grain, honey, Belgian yeast, candies. Flavour is also very fruity with oranges, candies and honey but also herbal hops. Ends light herbal bitter. Nice and round.

Pdubyah (733) - Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - APR 6, 2017
Goodness above, That’s a crashing amount of things going on, Lovely aroma does not prepare you for the explosion in the mouth of softness and a giant harshness and tart dryness that flows, sweet, sharp, soft and brutish. Loved it !
