MonsterMagnet (148) - NETHERLANDS - MAY 11, 2014
Bottle. Pours hazy orange, with a firm white head. Warning: has a large yeast depot, that will turn it caffe latte brown if poured. Aroma: fresh, oranges, flower blossom. Taste: fruity, orange, sweet apples, peach, some herbs. Smooth moutfeel, medium body, light-medium sweetness, long fruity bitter finish. Not very complex, but a nice refreshing fruity tripel.

Douberd (1999) - Arnhem, NETHERLANDS - APR 29, 2014
Bottle 330 ml at home, into a tulip glass. ABV 8% NIce dark orange colour on the bod with a tall white head, thick, with average retention for the first part, then after most of it has collapsed the remaining has even better retention. Light lacing on the glass. Aroma is sweet, with malts, with lots of peaches, sugar. Taste is also sweet, fruity, with peaches, apricot, notable alcohol. Medium body, average carbonation. Overall nice tripel, a bit too boozy.

tricksta_p (874) - Steenwijk, NETHERLANDS - APR 8, 2014
Aroma of fruits and spices, orange, apples, as well as some hops. Flavour is fruity and herbal sweetness, with some hop bitterness in the aftertaste. Nice, not your ordinary Tripel.

kappldav123 (4700) - GERMANY - FEB 15, 2014
Thanks to WillemsUrenkel for that one! Bottle looks simple but good. Beer in the glass zippy, nice head. Starts strong, fine malty-spicy, modest sweet, notes of some herbs. Warming, but not alcoholic. Well balanced finish. Nice!

MrHangover (2449) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - JAN 17, 2014
Bottle, thnx to Secret Sinterklaas 2013. Pours a clear golden beer with a small white head on top. Aroma is yeasty, fruity and malty. Nice to detect a faint hoppyness in there as well. Flavor is medium sweet and light alcoholic. Yeast is present in the flavor, in exactly the right way that suits a tripel. Again a faint bitterness from the hops. Very decent tripel, nice one.

WillemsUrenkel (410) - Oldenburg, GERMANY - DEC 30, 2013
0,33 l bottle bought directly ath the brewery. Pours yellow golden in the glass. Nearly no head. Citrus and fresh hop on the nose. Starts with citrus sweetness, noticeable but nice hopy. Little bit koreander, honey and almonds. Light oily, mid alcoholic, low bitterness and easy to drink. Like it!

Ordinary Belgian tripel that every brewers thinks he should have. I don’t think this is required.
