100th beer review of the year. 330ml bottle, poured into La Chouffe tulip.

A: Golden, slightlyhazy with a few floaters, initial two finger head,
decent retention, lots of lacing clung to the side of the glass.

S: To start with it wasn’t overly fragrant, picked up some fruity esters towards the
end, slightly more hops than is the norm for lots of Belgian beers.

T: Lots of esters and yeast, some fruits. Had a real sharpness to it. Finished
up with a hit of bitterness.

M: Not overly carbonated, slightly thick texture and heavy body.

O: It reminded me of certain beers from the Van Steenbergen brewery. I can’t find fault, but it didn’t do anything to distance itself from the herd.

Clear amber colour, a big head that disminishes but not leaves, great lace. Smell of tropical fruits, honey, spices, caramel. Good carbonation, medium to full body. Taste is similar to the smell, tropical fruits, spices, pine and some esters.

Appearance: Pours reddish amber, nice frother white head that resolves to fine lace

Smell: Hint of hay/barnyard, malt and plenty of yeast, over ripe apples/pears, fruity esters

Taste: Pleasant fruit forward (apple/pear/cider like), nice malty throughout without becoming syrupy, bready, very mild hop like astringency with adequate carbonation

Mouthfeel: Creamy, Adequate carbonation and hops to prevent from becoming too malty

Drinkability: Pleasant, easily quaffed tripel with well hidden alcohol.
