pours hazy/cloudy pale yellow, gold tint, with a nice creamy and reviving white head, nice lacing. strong pils character, but also doughy fruitiness - pears, pineapple; cereals, citrus, bitter herbs - no coriander, some sulfur, light sweetness - mostly candi, light peppery and floral booze, interesting belgian yeast features once it gets mixed - dust, pepper, vanilla - and particularly clean, phenols-wise, lemon candies, grass and lightly astringent woodsy notes. average to light carbonation, light to medium body - oily, boozy and almost balanced peppery-herbal-grassy-grapefruity finish. quite enjoyed!

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a hazy golden with a medium white head that leaves good lacing. Nose is floral, fruity and a little spicy. Not quite cloves but not pepper either, something in between. Taste is moderately sweet, less so than your traditional tripel and lightly bitter. Flavors are of ethanol, yellow fruits and spices. Alcohol is showing but not in a negative way. Body is medium, carbonation low to medium and mouthfeel a little smooth. Overall a good tripel, I’d drink that again!

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle: Served in a Duvel glass:
Medium sized white foamy head on top of a hazy yellow colored beer.
Aromas of wheat, yeast, banana, glue, grains, hint of older yellow fruits, some strange alcohol/phenol tones, some rice... Not too inviting!
Flavours of bitters, spices, wheat, malts, yeast, some glue, some grains, older corn and malts, close to nasty bitter, warm... Pfff unbalanced and hard to keep drinking... Bummer!
Aftertaste is a mix of bitters, grains, some malts, rice, some old fruits, some light nasty bitters...
Low carbo, creamy blown mouthfeel, medium bodied and a creamy texture.
This isn’t good, what happened!
