Hazy golden, slighter lighter colour than the tripel. Durable, lacing white head. Aroma is moderate hoppy, grapefruit, moderate yeasty. Flavor is moderate sweet and bitter with a average to long duration. Body is medium, texture is watery, carbonation is soft. Very nice beer like a mix of a light tripel and a light orval, complex and easy to drink.

Moderatley hazy, amber/orange. Gorgeous, dense head and sticky lace. Aroma of doughy, sugary malts, perfumy yeast, ripened fruit, some spices and others. Medium, almost thick, rich, lush body, loads of doughy malt flavor, hints of chocolate, toffee, banana, fruit, powdered candied sugars and spices, pronounced yeast character, spicy hop and alcohol that is very well hidden but drys the finish a bit. Very elegeant brew
