Had it from a 33cl bottle. Let's go!

A: Cloudy "orangy" golden color, with 2.5 fingers of a thick, white head. Disappears gradually. Very inviting.

S: Mostly bread, the stronger note, but it does not take over the rest. There is some sweetness, like banana, and some citrus. The aroma is kind of close to a white beer, and is very pleasant. There is no trace of alcohol

T: It begins with this citrus/grapefruit and banana flavor, followed by bread, malt. There is no bitterness, and no aftertaste. Something I didn't like that much is that, the taste doesn't stay in the mouth very long. The transitions between flavors are short, and there is little or no aftertaste. Again, the taste kind of reminds of a white beer in some aspects.

F: Medium to high carbonation. Nice for Autumn. I feel like the taste is not as full and complete as others in the same category, but its pleasant enough to drink.

O: Nice beer. Nothing impressive, but enjoyable.

750 mL bottle, best before 05/2017.

This bottle was brought back from Belgium as a gift. Thanks, Heather!

Deep gold color, but the clarity changed throughout its duration. The first pour resulted in brilliant clarity, with each successive pour more cloudy than the last. Big, pillowy white head that sticks to the site of the glass. Great looking beer.

Lots of fruit on the nose thanks to the yeast. Banana, pear, and apple. The flavor is a combination of malt/sugar sweetness and peppery spice. Very soft on the palate. Light to medium bodied with lively carbonation. Just a straightforward, fruity, refreshing, easy drinking Belgian ale.

This would make an excellent "table beer." Paired nicely with some grilled pork loin and potato salad.

This is the weaker sister of Tripel 10 and Brune (Dubbel) 8, weighing in at only 6% ABV. Let's give it a whirl. Popping the top I get a waft of banana and fruity malt. Pours to a cloudy bright yellow with a big pillowy head that recedes quickly but laces wickedly. Taste is definitely bready and banana with a twinge of bitterness that builds to the end then actually flips and gets sweet. A solid selection that can be more readily sessioner than its stronger sisters. Tasty none-the-less.

Very nice golden amber pour with a nice beige frothy head.
Aroma of sweet fruit, yeast and malt.
Tastes of apples and a hint of lemon. Candy floss somewhere in there.
Great champagne like carbonation and mild bitterness.
Really makes me understand why I like Belgium ales!
