75cl bottle into tulip.

A - Golden blonde with a titanic bubbly white head. Very aggressive carbonation flowing up from the bottom of the glass.

S - Inviting aroma of light citrus, apple cider, coriander, Belgian yeast, bready malts.

T - A delicious blend of apple, banana, lemon and sweet bready malts. Light coriander, clove and Belgian yeast add complexity. A touch of earthy herbal hops comes in to balance the sweetness.

M - Exceptionally smooth and light bodied. Crisp and refreshing. Super high carbonation but it works for the style.

O - Excellent tripel. Very complex, balanced and flavorful. This beer would pair beautifully with any type of seafood or meat.

Quite a carbonated brew so much so that it produced a substancial head of fluffy white foam running out of the glass and onto my counter.
Hazy golden sunshine color.
Aroma was malty and tart smelling with green apples and spices.
Taste to me was borderline wit beer with the addition of bottle lemonn juice.
Drinks smooth and refreshing but do so cautiously because at 8 abv the alcohol is well hidden.
Hey, it's a good beer that drinks well.

I won't be the first to say that this is absolutely the top. A very tasty beer, with lots of esters. Almost perfect.

L: golden, pilsener look, quite thin foam, nicely sticking on the glass;
S: lovely, banana, very soft hops, flowergarden;
T: round, but not too sweet, full of hops, but whitout the bitterishness;
M: a little too much carbonation perhaps, but what am I nagging...An impressive, complete creation;
O: you can wake me up at night for this one!!
