Bottle 33 cl. Nice white big foam. Color is very pale, almost as a white beer, and cloudy. Aroma is fruity, spicy, glazed fruits, cake, some lemon, coriander. In the mouth I feel cake, some fruits, maybe apple or pear, cream. Slightly sourness and very refreshing.

A-Large but not all-too-dense head...overflowed on the pour. Attractive darker yellow-gold and clear, bits of tracing.

S-Picked up adjuncts on the initial smell, but also smells of chiffon cake and alcohol.

TM-Metallic mouthfeel upfront...otherwise light-to-medium bodied with variety of malted grain flavors, pleasant spiciness, and slightly hoppy finish that leaves some dryness and balance, and some alcohol heat.

D-An okay beer worth trying.

Bottle served in Guinness brewhouse series pint glass in Belfort, France. Reviewed live. Hazy yellow colour. Semitransparent.

A: Clear yellow colour. Four finger head is thin and ugly with good retention but no cream.

Sm: Light barley with some lemon esters. Nothing special.

T: Full barley body with some lemon/citrus esters. Not horribly complex, but full and somewhat refreshing. Some layered hops, but not many, which don't necessarily culminate for the climax. A bit restrained. Balanced but fairly simple.

Mf: Smooth and wet, but featuring adequate coarseness for the climax to bring out (what little...) flavours (it has). Sort of suits the flavours on the body. A bit too coarse on the finish.

Dr: Drinkable enough, and very high ABV for its absence of flavours. Not unique, bold, or special. Very fairly priced in France.

The nose is both hoppy and a little safe with yet a touch of fruit but quite significant it must be said. Low in the body, mix a little corn and hops on, and the mixture is not really extraordinary and most importantly, do not make the easy-drinking beer. In addition, there is a lack of spice and finish.

I believe this beer, despite what the site says, is not retired. I picked up a couple in Aarschot just last week. The expiry date reads 19 April, 2012, so I believe this is still in circulation.

On to the review ... what a golden, clear appearance for this beer. Much clearer than the triples I'm accustomed to drinking. Head originally was about a quarter-inch, but rather quickly slimmed down to an eighth-inch. Rather bubbly as well.

A grainy, flowery smell, which likes it color also seemed different from the standard. The alcohol was very cleverly disguised by a fruity, spicy sensation in the taste. Well done.

Very happy I lucked upon this beer. I plan to return to the shop and purchase a few more, and while there I will inquire about whether it is indeed "retired".

Beer bottle (25cl), tasted in 2008.
Appearance: golden blond colour, clear and bright. White foam with medium-sized bubbles, good persistency
Smell: Well malty, slightly influenced by alcohol, fruity
Mouthfeel & Taste: fruity attack, a lot of freshness. Spicy aromas, floral and herbaceous. low bitterness.
Drinkability : a strong beer (style triple), great freshness. A beer distributed by Vanuxeem and brewered by Van Steenberge (Ertvelde).
