3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a cloudy straw-gold with a sizable, frothy, off-white head. Leaves about as much lacing as Iíve ever seen in a beer of this style. The yeasty-bready-fruity-grassy smell is paired with a yeasty-wheaty-fruity taste that is more sour than sweet. Both the aroma and the flavor have somewhat lower levels of banana and clove than those found in many Belgian blondes. Hints of coriander and lemon. Light-medium body, if a bit fuller than average for style. The carbonation is a bit aggressive.
Overall: OK, but a step down in quality from their excellent Brune.

UPDATED: OCT 26, 2015 At Bad Apple. OK but not great tripel. Not crisp and tart enough and the sweetness level didnít quite work. The missus thought it was a bit one note. Serving: Tap

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours with really good lacing. Has mostly a floral taste, a good example of the triple on the upper end of the average. Holds it down without being anything too crazy. Some licorice, definite floral aftertaste. A little touch of bitterness. Itís a good package. Bottle from The Only Cafe.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Holy white head of doom batman! I poped the top and foam damn near exploded out the bottle. The color is a blonde cloudy with yeast floaties. The aroma is yeasty ans a bit spicy and gives the impression of a full bodied brew. The taste is indeed yeasty and there is a sweet spicy note. The body is more of a medium body. You can feel the alcohol a bit as you swallow. Overall not a bad brew worth a buy and a rebuy

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle @ Geroen tasting. Pours slightly hazy yellow to dark yellow. White dense head. Fragile nose, all subtle, but on sipping lots of alcohol warmth, but still a velvet slick palate. A dangerous and conservatie triple.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a cloudy yellow with a foamy white head. The aroma has a lot of fruit and a bit of funk. The flavor is fruity with a bit of pepper at the back. The finish is dry. OK but nothing special.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Seems confused. This drinks much more wild and herbal like a Saison rather than with the subtle complexity of Tripel. Banana and dried herbs dominate the nose and palate.
