Nate (3827) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 3, 2009
From bottle at ’t Brugs Beertje. Light lactic yeasty fresh aroma with pilsner malt and a bit of sour nose. Light sugar and some hops but overall a standard blonde-tripel aroma. Perhaps a bit of oxidation. Golden amber clear with foamy white lacing head. Medium watery body with medium carbonation. Starts sweet with nice malt, some candi sugar, and mild honey. Yeasty carbonic notes with lactose sweet after. Orange peel? Mild alcohol flavor but not cloyingly sweet, dry chalky after.

33cl Bottle at Kafé België. Clear golden colour, white head. Aroma of yeast, sharp grainy alcohol, light fruity. Flavour is light sweet, light fruity, yeast, alcohol, bitterness underneath throughout, bitter malty finish. Not very refined, a bit sharp mouthfeel. Light to medium bodied.

mcdav2154 (449) - GERMANY - OCT 11, 2009
Minimal head over a clear blonde body. Good lacing. Smell is huge in bubble gum with yeast and some citrus. Taste was a lot of the same. I can’t believe how much this one taste and smells like bubble gum! Really weird. I like this one but it’s not the best BSA. Just different than others I’ve had. Overall not very well balanced with the hops and sweetness but still a pretty good beer.

JayBaxter (407) - Greater Manchester, Greater Manchester, ENGLAND - JUL 18, 2009
Clear golden beer with a thin lasting white head, aroma is citrussy, floral and spicey - taste follows but with a slightly bitter finish that knocks down the score. Kinda reminds me of Tripel Karmeliets poorer cousin.......still a good beer though.

from tap @ the republiek, brugge, golden colour and very stable nice white head. Sour and grainy smell. Taste: fruity, grainy, a bit bitter, malty and yeasty. Good quality and typical Belgian blond-beer.
