3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
December 15, 2012; 9.0% abv, 330 mL, trappist, BBD: 25/05/14
Aroma of honey, lemon peel and Belgian yeast. Fruit esters of banana with clove spice. Pours golden with a very slight haze. Active carbonation is evident. Big fluffy white head that strongly laces the glass. Sweet. Strong taste of alcoholic spice, fruity banana and yeast. Finish is slightly herbal but dominated by the spice. Too strong on the booze. Surprisingly watery with a dry finish. Heavy on the booze. Interestingly sweet.

Thanks to my brother-in-law for sharing. Pour is golden with an ample white head. Clove more than banana and lemon zest and other citrus flavors. Flavor is standard tripel palate is a little rough around the edges. Not terrible, there are better examples.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
330ml bottle bought in Carrefour in Brugge to drink at home.
Pours well. Pale straw in colour with a creamy head which lasts well.
Initially tastes quite hoppy but that soon leaves you with a slightly bitter and soapy lemon after taste that I don’t find unpleasant !

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
It pours deep golden clear with a long lasting white head. The aroma contains herbs, spices, apple, citrus and some yeastiness. The taste is medium sweet, medium bitter and light sour. Finish is long, dry and spicy. Full bodied and fizzy on the tongue. 9% alcohol is not noticeable. A decent beer, but it misses something that its little brother does have.

Thanks for sharing this one, Mason. I actually took a picture after I poured it into a tulip glass. Aroma was apples and flavor was in line with the smell. Carbonation is very high so it’s a sipper. Vintage 2013.

33 cl. bottle @ home, bought @ van Rooij, Culemborg.
Clear golden with a white head. Fruity yeasty aroma. Sweet taste and lively carbonation. Typical strong blonde Belgian beer; decent but utterly boring.

Bottle. Pours gold with a rocky white head that collapses quickly. Lemon and spice aroma. Taste of light malt, is lemon on toast a thing?, there’s some quite nice Belgian yeastiness but hidden in the background. Alcohol and spice to finish. Gets a touch lemon washing up liquid in the end.
