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.

Transfer from BA review on 2-10-14- Poured from bottle into a chalice glass Appearance – The beer pours a hazy light orange-amber color with a huge and thick foamy white head. The head has a great level of retention, slowly fading to leave a great level of lace on the sides of the glass. Smell – The aroma of the brew is a quite delicious, consisting of a heavy sweet aroma of banana, orange, apple, and bubblegum. Along with this smells comes a yeast cake aroma mixed with spices of clove and coriander. A light grassy and hay aroma are there as well with a light alcohol booziness giving a very nice and sweet triple smell. Taste – The taste begins with a bready and slightly sweet flavor with flavors of apple, pear, and orange. A yeasty flavor is present upfront with it remaining a base taste throughout the flavor profile. The bready flavor transitions to a more cracker like flavor as the taste moves on, with the sweeter flavors dwindling from the start to the middle of the taste. While the sweet dwindle some, they make a resurgence toward the end being joined by some bubblegum sweetness. All while this occurs, some light spice flavors of coriander and clove come to the tongue. Other flavors comes as well around this time with a moderate booziness as well as some grassy and astringent flavors coming to the tongue. The astringent get moderately intense at the end, mixing with the now sweet, crackery and spiced flavor to leave a somewhat odd triple flavor on the tongue. Mouthfeel – The body of the brew is on the average to slightly thicker side with a carbonation level that is on the higher side and is composed of lots of lighter/tiny carbonation bubbles. While a slightly thinner body may have been a bit more complementing of the mix of sweet, astringent, and spice, the higher carbonation was rather good for the flavor profile helping make a decent feel overall. Overall – A little too much astringentness and an odd mix of cracker and sweet at the end of the taste. Overall an alright drinking brew however and at least worth giving a try to.

Fashawn (251) - Montesarchio, ITALY - OCT 5, 2014
Biondo ambrata. Schiuma bella consistenza della panna, bianca. Odore di pere e mele, qualche spezia e lievemente mele. In bocca si presente dolce, con il miele e l’alcool che torna sotto forma di frutta, tipo ciliege spiritate. Finale caldo e lungo ma secco. Splendida tripel, adoro questo genere.

slowrunner77 (6278) - Reno, Nevada, USA - SEP 18, 2014
A not totally off putting, but ill fitting sour aroma and flavor. Not the crisp spicy Belgian triple I’m used to. A little fruity, sweet, dry and gassy. Just not very interesting. Don’t know the age, but this is just not very tripelish."

Lagerboy (1411) - British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 18, 2014
330 ml bottle. Couded yellow orange, big white lasting foam. Fruity Belgian yeasty aroma. Bitter yeasty herbal spiced taste, too tart, citric, candi sugar, milder malts. Lively carbonation, medium bodied, well hopped. Dry and a bit boozy. NFL (Not For Lagerboys)

MichaelAwesome (4896) - Wanne-Eickel, North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - SEP 3, 2014
Mit McTapps geteilt und als angenehme Abwechslung angesehen. Viel Vanille, etwas Butter, viel Hopfen und eine ordentliche Prise Hefe. Sehr heftige Perlung, die es einem stellenweise nicht einfach macht. Dennoch ein feines und süffiges Piwo.

Bottle as "Egmond’s Triple" - brought home from a friend. Pours out in a hazy, milky golden-orange-brownish colour with big, big head and smooth body. Aroma of Belgian yeast and flowers. Taste of Belgian yeast, wheat, bread, flowers, caramel and mild spices. Flowery.soapy finish. Not a bad one.

Bottle, 330ml. Pours cloudy auburn. Aroma is much too hoppy and a bit if a turn off. However the scent deceives and the taste is very clean and pleasant. Great for a hot day. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
