3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
33cl bottle. Pours hazy golden with a low white head. Aroma is sweet with caramel, biscuits, butterscotch and some light yeast. Taste is malts, caramel, some sweet fruits, alcohol, very light yeast again. Oily texture, medium carbonation, sweet aftertaste. Good but a bit too sweet, quite far from the belgian competition.

"not quite as smooth as the dubbel, it’s a solid effort nonetheless. Very spicy, drier, in the nose and flavor. i like this more than most trippels. solid."

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Poured from bottle. Aromas of butterscotch, clove, and citrus. Has a pale amber colour with minimal head. Light to medium sweet taste. Light to medium body, with oily texture, and a somewhat dry finish. Not bad, but certainly not great either, seems a bit too sweet.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Banana, apple, apricotsugary pale malts and alcohol in the aroma. Where’s the spice? Fullish for a tripel, sweet and boozy. Drinkable but far from what it aspires to.

draught@Erzbierschof - light hazy bronze beer with a long lasting yet little white foam; yeasty and perfumy, ripe yellow fruits; sweet and full-bodied, light sourness and a long fruity (apple dominates) and perfumy finish with lingering yeasty notes - pretty triple indeed

3.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Des odeurs de caramel aigre-douce
Une couleur or et une mousse qui ne tient pas
En bouche on sens Des arômes de caramel de pêche, elle est lourde... Ne sont pratiquement pas la force de l'alcool

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
22 ounce bottle into chalice, no bottle dating. Pours slightly hazy bright orange color with a 1 finger dense off white head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Some nice spotty soapy lacing clings on the glass, with a light amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of apricot, orange, pear, apple, plum, light banana, clove, pepper, honey, candi sugar, bread, herbal, grass, and yeast earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good complexity and balance of fruity/spicy yeast, pale malt, and earthy hop notes; with solid strength. Taste of apricot, orange, pear, apple, plum, light banana, clove, pepper, honey, cadi sugar, bread, herbal, grass, and yeast earthiness. Light yeast spiciness on the finish; with lingering notes of apricot, orange, plum, pear, apple, clove, honey, candi sugar, bread, herbal, grass, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Nice complexity and robustness of fruity/spicy yeast, pale malt, and earthy hop flavors; with a good malt/yeast balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a smooth, fairly crisp, and lightly slick mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with only a light warming present after the finish. Overall this is a nice Tripel style. Good balance of fruity/spicy yeast, pale malt, and earthy hops flavors; and very smooth to sip on for the big ABV. A nicely enjoyable offering.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
the aroma of malt, fruits and dry wine... the taste is rather clear, with shades of toffee and, a little bit, bananas... dry, sweet and bitter aftertaste... very good abbey ale in Belgian traditions...
