Bottle at home, golden beer with a medium head, aroma is some spice and fruit, some malts. Taste is the same, decent tripel

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
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.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

4.6 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Couleur jaune/orange trouble, petite mousse blanche. Nez de levures belges et floral. Gout de paille, levures, notes citronnées, florales et alcool avec fin un peu astringente et fruitée. Pas une triple exceptionnelle.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Gushes from the bottle. When it eventually ends up in the glass, it is a golden colour with large aerated head. Aromas of honey, alcohol, crisp green apple, grain. The taste is very sweet - strong floral honey, apple pie. The light acidity in the finish doesn’t do enough to cut through the sweetness. Medium bodied and sticky mouthfeel emphasises the sweetness as well. Not a bad sipper but lacks balance and is too sweet.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
From 330 ml bottle. Pours a mostly clear golden amber with a creamy white head and very fine carbonation. Aromas of apple pie, citrus and banana. Taste however is much more robust. Baked apple and crusty bread at the front before a mild burnt orange note kicks in. Gentle hay, funk and banana at the back end. Lingering fruity aftertaste. Maybe not the archetypal tripel but definitely worth a go.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Cor âmbar (SRM 6-9) translúcida, creme branco inicial volumoso, persistindo fina camada branca. Pequenas bolhas persistentemente subindo do fundo da taça, como um espumante. Aroma frutado, cítrico, com presença de fermentação evidente. Corpo médio, alta carbonatação, malte predomina, álcool não agride, lúpulo quase imperceptível. Retrogosto discreto e percebe-se mais a carbonatação que sabor residual.
Boa Tripel, mas inferior a outras do estilo.
