oh6gdx (21935) - Vasa, FINLAND - APR 22, 2015
Bottled (backlog). Hazy yellowish orange colour with a small white head. Aroma is wood, some herbs, yeast, quite citrusy as well as mild earthiness. Flavour is citrus, some wood, resin, quite strong on the yeast along with some herbs and earth to it. Yet very fresh and nice. Hides the alcohol really well.

Beautiful golden color. Little cloudy. Nice layer of foam. Fresh smell. Taste is bitter in the end, but sweet at first. Beautifully balanced, nice craftsmanship of the monks. God, do I love Trappist beer.

MOUTHFEEL/PALATE/TEXTURE - Good carbonation, clean, light, effervescent, crisp, refreshing. VALUE - $10 for an 11 oz. bottle - not that bad for an import at a restaurant. OVERALL/DRINKABILITY - Quite drimkable for a Tripel. Not a sipping beer.

turbothy (1141) - Bonn, GERMANY - OCT 13, 2014
Pours a deep, cloudy golden colour with a dense head. Floral aroma. Initial mouthfeel is somewhat "spritzig" and sharp but quickly gives way to a pleasantly warming flavour. Good.
