3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Artisanal tripel (mind the incorrect spelling ’trippel’ on the label) with rocky, dense, snow white head (captured after fierce gushing) and hazy peach blond colour. Complex and strong aroma, a basket of exotic fruits, melon, orange, kiwi, banana, strawberry, tomato, aniseed, coriander, freshly grated ginger, field flowers, cheese spread, eggnogg and lavender. Delicately sweet taste, sparkling with relatively strong carbonation, smoothly evolving into a powerful, long, sticky, oily and cheesy hop bitterness (dry-hopping) bringing the whole to sheer perfect balance. Used to be quite famed among the well-informed beer adepts and I agreed with them: this is / was an underestimated masterpiece. Too bad for the gushing, though, so not completely flawless.

"11 oz bottle. Murky golden brown. Aroma very very yeasty. Dirty yeasty :). A little dense and fruity/spicy. Not a standout in the style but enjoyable all the same."

Tasty Belgian tripel. Spicy and malty body, with a nice hoppy note, very balanced.

Sampled from tap @ OBM 2013. Clear golden color, medium sized white head that lasts for a decent time. Smell and taste malts, a touch of sweetness, some bitterness in the finish. Nicely balanced, perfect carbonation, medium to full body. Very nice tripel.

Poco compresa/poco comprensibile, qui dicono a picture perfect Belgian Tripel, io direi "just a picture of a Belgian Tripel", nel senso platonico di mimesi.

(bottle, 33cl) Hazy, golden colour with a blond medium-sized frothy head. Yeasty and slightly soapy malty aroma with shy notes of apricots, citrus and shades of flowery hops. Moderately sweet flavour, medium bodied with a slightly fizzy carbonation. Dry-ish malty and yeasty spicy taste with a moderate fruit character; slightly spicy and hop bitter finish. Easy going Tripel. 10.I.11

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle. The aroma of yeast, light fruity. The small white creamy head has a short duration, the body is pale orange. The taste is light bitter-metallic, fruity. The body is dry and creamy, light to medium strong with a rather lively carbonation.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Golden color with a huge white lacing foam. Aroma is refreshing with cantalope, honey, citrus, hops and yeast. Medium, hazy body, a bit on the light side for my taste, but there is a good amount of carbonation that somewhat balances it. When cold, there is a dry, bitter aftertaste, which becomes fairly sweet when the beer is warmer. There is a little taste of alcohol, but not bothering at all. Not great, but certainly not bad either.
