BeerGolem (728) - Quebec, CANADA - NOV 25, 2014
Bottle 330 ml. Pours hazy straw blond with thick white head. Aroma: honey, yeast, malt, alcohol, floral notes. Interesting aromas, but awkward mix. Taste is also subpar. Alcohol not too well hidden. Overall, not terrible, but far from excellent.

Sample at Örebro Öl & Whisky 2014. Fruity smell with an almond paste aroma. Similar taste. A bit alcoholic but not too much. Nice tripel.

De couleur blonde translucide ; la mousse et blanche est assez épaisse Au nez on trouve des arômes de bananes et le caramel Embouche on sont des notes de noisettes et de l'échalote de bananes Il y'a très peu d'amertume dans cette bière

ManVsBeer (5320) - Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - NOV 14, 2014
Bottle @ Bierpaleis, Brugge. Copper-gold with a large carbonation and a thick bubbly-frothy head. Strong tasting but maintaining its distinctively Belgian nose that has yeasts and vanilla evident too. Nice and smooth in the palate.
