4/5 rDev -2.9%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4
Presentation: 1 pt. 9 fl oz. corked ceramic bottle with a blue foil crown that is rather hard to remove. The beer is poured into a tulip glass.
Appearance: Hazy, pale gold. Pours with a beautiful, foamy, sudsy, rocky, long-lasting head which coats my glass with a fine lace.
Smell: Fruity esthers of pineapple and orange combine with a fairly prominent, musty Belgian yeast aroma. Some phenolic alcohols are also noticed.
Taste: Creamy and medium-bodied. Carbonation is noticeably present, yet restrained. Warming alcohols hit the palate upfront, combined with some hop bitterness and nectar-like fruitiness, with elements of peach, pear and pineapple present. A hoppy bitterness lies in the finish as well, combied with some musty, Belgian yeast-like properties. Some spicy, clove-like flavors are noticed in the finish as well.
Overall: This is one powerful beer - not only in alcohol, but flavor. I normally like my Belgians to be a little more mellowed out, but this did me just fine. It's raw, unrestrained, and full of complexities that many beers (even some Belgians) are not. Highly recommended!

Got it in Hungary.
A - Creamy big white foam, lasting minute or two, but leaving one mm. on top. Medium carbonation. Light golden color.
S - Floral, typically Belgian tripel smell, but weak. Warm, fresh..
T/M - So carbonated ! Warm. Almost can't feel nothing more from carbonation and warming.
Low bitterness, again some floral aroma's.
O - This is not my style, don't like strong beers, without strong aroma's.
