Bottled (thanks Samuli!). Hazy deep golden colour with a small, but long lasting white fluffy head. Leaves some lace. Aroma is fruits, sweet malty notes as well as mild bready and some spices. Flavour is very similar in a quite nice balance. Also mild alcohol shows. Nice tripel.

fiulijn (15000) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 10, 2010
Tasting at Papsø
Hazy blond color. Aroma of plastic and puke. Correct body strength, sweetish malt flavor, then I have the impression of drinking a vegetables soup. Low bitterness. Uncontrolled fermentation, like all French beers.

harrisoni (13897) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - JUL 9, 2014
Bottle from Carrefour and drunk at home. Hazy amber lasting beige head. Little bit of vegetable, but mostly quite drinkable malts. Little bit of hop. It’s not much of a tripel to be honest and I got a little bit of vegetal flavour that put me off.
