(Bottle, 0.33 l - BBE 31/05/14, from Alko Arkadia, 20130130) The beer poured golden and hazy. Its head was quite large, long lasting and white. Aroma had fruitiness, sweetness and Belgian style yeast. Palate was medium bodied and somewhat numbing with medium carbonation. Flavours were fruitiness, sweetness, honey, malts, Belgian style yeast, grass and bitterness. Aftertaste had honey, Belgian style yeast and bitterness. A quite balanced and clean tripel but also easy to forget. The palate was unpleasant.

Ottima birra d'abazzia francese ma di stampo completamente belga, molto beverina e dolcina al punto giusto. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

mikkopen (835) - Oulu, FINLAND - JAN 21, 2013
330 ml bottle. Hazy golden colour, big white head that leaves a nice lacing. Spicy aroma with citrus, yeast and notes of caramel. The flavour is fruity, with yeast and a little alcohol, and a nicely spicy finish. Not the best tripel around, but still quite nice.

Bottled. Clear pale golden in color with frothy whitish head. Leaves a nice lacing on the glass. Fruits, spices and even some sour notes in aroma. Smooth to drink. Spices again, some fruits and belgian yeast in taste. Pleasant.

Grzesiek79 (3214) - Radom, POLAND - JAN 1, 2013
Rewelacyjne francuskie piwo, w którym nie czuć alkocholu. A jest mocno rozgrzewające w końcówce, treściwe i bogato słodowe w smak, mętne śliczna piana i piękne opakowanie. Butelka kamionkowa i korkowana. Zdobywca nagrody w paryżu w 2008r. Polecam tego tripla.

CharlieNoodles (80) - Toulouse, FRANCE - NOV 7, 2012
Cloudy amber/orange colornwith hardly any collar. Sweet warm fruity smell. Taste is much stronger compared to its looks and its soft and warm smell. Penetrating citrus with flavours of licorice

AshtonMcCobb (2574) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - NOV 5, 2012
50cl bottle. Pours golden with a lovely lacy head. The nose has custard, gorse maybe with a yeasty background. The taste is confected fruit salade with a sweet cranberry note on the finish. The palate is medium bodied and textured with a long tangy finish. Overall, really interesting beer.

stravale (2103) - Near Carrick-on-Shannon, IRELAND - OCT 30, 2012
Bottle at Craig’s 271012
Light golden, soft haze, thin white head
Aroma of soft belgian yeast, candy sugars, soft aromatic herbal
Taste of soft belgian fruity yeast esters, hint of banana, candy sugar, fair amount of alcohol though, not well hidden
Palate - medium carb, bit oily. Finish as main flavour, some warming alcohol
Overall - OK not the best tripel I’ve had
