750 ml bottle. L160R. BB 10/13. From bierzwerg.de.
Hazy orangey golden colour with a small white head.
Berries, yeast, mild smokiness (?), malt and mild hops in the aroma.
The flavour is sourish berries, mild sweetness, yeast, mild alcohol and mild hops. Rather nice. Wish I had this when I visited the brewery in Milan.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draught at the Lambrate Pub in via Golgi
Red amber color, wit generous head. The aroma is very fruity, mellow. Good body, well structured, round, quite sweet, with good fruity malt flavor; the bitterness is strong, and there is a mild spicy note in the end; long final.
A different Tripel, has similarities with the American ones, but with more character

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle at the De Molen second Tuesday tasting, April 2013. Poured a slightly hazy medium amber with a glass hugging white head. The aroma is big malt and Belgian yeast. The flavour is medium bitter, malty and a little sweet with some citrus notes. Very drinkable. Not a classic Belgian tripel. Possibly an improvement!
