4.13/5 rDev +12.2%
Pours out a very cloudy amber color with a modest head. Aroma is mildly fruity with a sweet maltiness. Very citrusy flavor, a mix of grapefruity hops and lots of bright, estery yeast character. Bitterness is only moderate, but hop flavor is plentiful. Finish becomes acidic at the very end, with a lingering dryness. Medium to light body, with a creamy texture.
Pretty decent beer. Worth getting more of.

A - 2" thick, foamy, eggshell white head. Good retention at 1". Thick lace. Clear golden brew with a bunch of carbonation.
S - Lemon. Other than that I got a low aroma.
T - Lemon acidity. Citrusy. Apple. Like a pinot grigio! Almost tripel like malt profile. Almonds. Some bitterness very late. Lingering lemon.
M - Thin body with high carbonation. Clean, dry finish.
D - Good drinkability. This beer was hard to figure out. Seemed at first to be a little one dimensional, but turned out to be very interesting.

Huge head, pale-ish peach body, very cloudy, impressive on the upstairs, though.
Nose is spicy and citric, lemon and lime, with a hit of pepper.
Zesty on the tongue, full of spice and citrus...just right for a triple, maybe even a bit more than that. Big bodied, full, flush with yeast, this one. And a never ending spicy, citric, hoppy kick on the palate. Yes, yum, you got it...
A mere 6%, rather mild for a triple, compared to most...but it's a bit sharper than I'd like so we're not going overboard on the drinkability. But, it's a damned nice example, very unique and well worth the trying.

Slightly translucent gold color, tall white head head that rises up over an inch in height. Lacy clinging laces on the glass. Aroma is fruity, unripe peach and some lavander floral smells. Lightish mouthfeel, carbonation is medium, floats delicately across the tongue. Light caramel malt backbone, good hop counterpoint that magnifies closer to the finish in a nice progression. Tanginess and dryness that's somewhat reminiscent of Duvel. Maltiness and a bit of oxidation seems to be more apparent as the beer warms, I actually like this one better served at a slightly colder temperature. I found this to be a very nice beer and my favorite from de Block so far.

Woww this is a beer! Almost perfect poorout with a huge white head and a almost perfectly clear beer that has a deep golden color. Nose is wonderfull too! Lots of (dry)hops with brett(?) arome and that together with some maltarome and litle sourness.
Taste is another wonderfull expierience. Dry, malty sour before getting into a nice but maybe litle hard and for some heavy bitterness. Basicly a beer that's similar to Orval so in my opinion one to watch out for!
