Golden shining and soft feeling in the mouth - perfectly balanced taste - full body and heart warming, a splendid aroma, tickling in the nose - hoppy dry long finish.

ChewyBeer (235) - SOUTH AFRICA - AUG 2, 2015
Pours light golden with good fluffy head. Mild nose, slightly Bready with a touch of spice. Medium mouthfeel and we’ll carbonated. Malt and belgian yeast flavours with above average bitterness following through. A bit boozy but good

LetsGoState (771) - Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 20, 2015
Appearance is large white head and hazy orange amber. Aroma isn’t strong, but has spices. Taste is some spice, but a bit weaker than expected. Overall not a memorable one.

BlackHaddock (5759) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - MAY 24, 2015
23rd May 2015: 330ml bottle into a Corsendonk badged stemmed tulip. Poured the whole bottle in, so the sediment clouded the orange/golden body somewhat. The head being a white blanket which did not hang around too long. Hops and yeasty esters rule the nose, the taste also has a hop lead. Not your typical Abbey Tripel, no malt presence in either the aroma or flavour: decent enough but I expected and wanted more from the brew.

ttoadee (1173) - Austin, Texas, USA - MAY 17, 2015
Hazy straw color, full finger of white head. Nose is light malt and Belgian yeast. Bitter. Middle is Pils malt and some spice. Finish is sweet malt; a little flat for the style.

dlihcsnatas (582) - Texas, USA - MAY 13, 2015
Hazy gold with head that holds on the bitter end. Has a touch of fruit going on behind the malts and then there is a little bitterness from the hops and then a slight burn of the alcohol. Balanced out so well that this one can easily be chugged but of course with the ABV and the price would not recommend. Once again this brewery has put out another perfect beer and once again I have to dock points on the overall because it cost too much to make it my everyday brew.

rdb84 (500) - NETHERLANDS - MAY 12, 2015
Pilsener pour with lasting head. Spicy, fruity aroma: pepper, red pepper, rosehip, hint of paprika (bell pepper), hint of cinnamon. Yeast deposit reveals spinach as well. Taste starts boozy, and develops a marsipan taste. Overall, the development is quite interesting because of the boozy aspect of the beer. First you get a hint of pepper and paprika (bell pepper), which slowly develops towards a sweet marsipan taste, which then develops towards a boozy kick. The beer ends with a sweet and slightly sticky aftertaste, which almost reminds of candy (jawbreaker bubblegum). Interesting.

Beerathon (1679) - Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 11, 2015
Very strange tripel. I get the Belgian yeast and some effervescence that’s typical of the style, but has a strange hop presence along with almost a lager-esque/German skunkiness. No sweetness, where’s the candied sugar?! An okay beer, but not what I want when I crack open a tripel.
