L: A slightly hazy dark straw yellow with a nice head - a thin layer stayed to the very last sip
S: A slight sweet/sour musky grape like at a winery
T: Pretty intense white wine grape flavor with a bready finish
F: A sort of unusual combination - feels kind of thick yet still has a good amount of carbonation. Also has some alcohol heat.
O: More wine-like than I was expecting, which is not my favorite, but not at all bad.

750ml corked and caged bottle served in a burgundy stem. Pours a lovely sunny gold with a rocky, two inch, bright white head. Clarity is slightly hazy. Head eventually settles into a solid, 1/8th inch cap with thick swaths of lacing revealed as the beer recedes. Nose expresses citrus zest and a grassy quality. Taste consistent with nose; however, there's also a light spicy/peppery quality to the flavor profile, as well as a trace of honey. Flavors are subtle without being cloying. Mouthfeel is light in body with a pleasant, even, carbonation. Overall, very drinkable with a well-hidden abv. An exemplar of the style.

Poured from bottle into a chalice glass

Appearance – The beer pours a hazy orange golden color with a nice billowy white fizzy foam head. The head fades moderately quickly over time leaving a little bit of foamy lace on the sides of the glass.

Smell – The aroma of the beer is strong of a cracker aroma mixed with a lot of yeast and a little bit of a bready smell. Along with these aromas comes some smells of clove and coriander as well as a good showing of a grainy and fruity smell. All in all it gives a rather nice and clean Belgium smell overall.

Taste – Upfront the taste has a decent showing of a fruity nature of peach and pear mixed with a whole lot of a bready taste. A decent showing a clean grainy flavor and a lot of yeast are present upfront as well, which make for a rather flavorful taste. While lighter upfront, the spice flavors of coriander and clove get rather potent toward the end and are joined by lots of grass and a herbal hop. With a light decrease in the sweet, and a little more grainy and some hay coming to the tongue at the end, one is left with a nice flavorful and crisp Belgium strong flavor to linger on the tongue.

Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is on the thinner and crisper side with a carbonation level that is on the higher side. For the somewhat fruity and sweet, yet crisp and bready tastes, the feel is quite nice and when considering the style, this one makes for a rather nice drinker overall.

Overall – This was rather enjoyable Belgium triple style ale. Lots of nice flavor all while maintaining a rather crisp and refreshing character at 8.5 % abv.

Nice belgian beer of a orange/ocher color and a big whitey foam.
Smell and taste are basically malty and yeasty (not too much considering the style), with some notes of grains, spices and an alcoholic feel.
Fruitiness becomes higher as the beer becomes less cold. Difficult to distinguish details in this one...
Body and carbonation are at high level, bitterness is at average.

Pours a clear, sun-yellow color, with a huge, stable head.

Drinks very smooth, due to a well pronounced yeast foundation, with a perfect fitting carbonation, revealing a medium body.

The nose exhibits qualities of an european lager, with sweeter, biscuity malts and slightly herbal hops, but amped up with a spicy yeast foundation. Grass provides a lot of character, giving the aromas an interesting turn.


Tastes of dough, soft and spiced yeast, among biscuity malts. Has a lemon peel crispness giving the beer a pleasant freshness. Finishes with a decent dryness, wrapped up by clove, pepper, flowery hops and a luscious yeast foundation.

A classic example of a refreshing, complex traditional Belgian beer. The yeast spiciness is well integrated, without becoming the dominant ingedient of the beer. Grass, lemon peel and biscuity malts among a slightly metallic carbonation adds an enjoyable depth.

On tap at Cafe Rose Red, Bruges.
Chalky, earthy, stale, and overall unpleasant. Unbalanced spices and lots of off flavors. Looked nice, but that's about it.
