3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from the De Molen Beershop. Poured a hazy medium amber with a huge frothy white head and lots of bubbles. The aroma is big yeast, alcohol, light citrus. The flavour is moderate bitter with a soft yeast, zesty citrus light hop bitter palate. Medium bodied with very lively carbonation. The aroma is right there in your face, but this a really smooth, flavourful tripel. The alcohol is well in the background which was a big surprise. This beer would give some of the more established tripels a run for their money.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Very big and vast off white to light creamy head on top of a hazy dark orange colored beer.
Smell hops, soap, herbs.
Taste is a nice mix of hops, herbs, alcohol, some fruit like green apples, hint of yeast and bitter.
Herby hoppy alcoholic light dry bitter aftertaste.
Low to medium carbo, soft mouthfeel, medium body and a light creamy texture.
Just a little too much alcohol in the taste, but it’s a fine brew.

Bottle 33cl from bierkoning thanks ! A cloudy copper-orange beer with huge head and good retention and lacing. Nose is malty, astringent and with grapefruit notes. Aroma is malty, sweet, lot if coriander is coming with licorice, anise and bubblegum notes too. Hops is peppery at the finish with over riped fruit touch, alcohol is well hidden, a bit too spicy.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Slightly hazy amber colour, white head. Aroma of apple, green apple, quite sweet, fruit, bubblegum and honey. Quite bitter hoppy flavour, sweet malts. Bitter finish, caramel, light sweet notes, bubblegum and fruits.
Nice brew! /And on an entirely unrelated note: during this rating, on the first day of the Brugs Beer Festival -we went there later-, my pen broke down. The exact one I got last year at the hotel I stayed in at Brugge, for -indeed- the previous BAB festival. Almost as if the pen knows..
(From 33cL bottle, shared @ The Plow Street Residence. From trade with Bierkoning. Thanks!!)

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.
