Rye tripel reservaThis bourbon-barrel aged tripel produces one hell of a head when poured. It is dark brown colourwise and almost non-transparent. Nose is very fresh albeit also relatively sweet, one can tell that there’s some sweetness behind the fruity veil. This highly reflects in taste, which kicks of with an exiting subtle tease of acidity, before its just sweetness all over. The caramelmalts… Strongest positioned midway through… Very tasty. The taste lingers long, and the caramel lasts well into the aftertaste. Perhaps most exiting is the fresh attitude that fronts this beer, that is what’s really cool about this one.
