most carbonated beer I've had: 2" head lasted ~ 5 min. A bit citrus/funk going on.
** ABS is 9%, not 11 ***

Slightly hazy amber orange color with a thick huge beige head with eternal retention.
Aroma with notes of candied sugar, apple juice, pineapple, very mild clove, a bit of banana, herbs and biscuit malt.
Flavor with notes of Cointreau liquor, some lime peel, green apples, candi sugar, white wine, pears, herbal and floral hops, caramel and biscuit malt, mild toasted, coriander, cloves and ginger. Dry aftertaste with a good bitterness relatively to style.
Medium body with appropriate carbonation that is less effervescent than average which is welcome. Alcohol of 9% is very in harmony with the overall beer.
This was nice; very easy to drink and rounded Tripel, perfectly balanced but still modern with very present noble hops. Threesome of hops, alcohol and phenols.

Served cool (as recommended on the label) from 330ml brown bottle.

L) Glowing orange-amber colour, slightly hazy, large fluffy slightly white head.

S) Belgian yeast, sweet honey, definite hefeweizen-type esters in there two. Can't wait to taste this one and see what its got.

T) Sweet and very malty. Tastes of gingerbread in there, honey too. Finishes with just a balancing touch of hop bitterness. Slight hefeweizen orangey taste in there too. Lots to enjoy. Just feel that we could live without the bittering aspect.

F) For 9% ABV, this goes down easy. Well carbonated and with little bitterness, this is a real pleasure to drink.

O) Fantastic strong beer, so easy to drink too.
