4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle. Opaque bright golden body, tall lasting head. Aroma has a delicate balance of floral hops and Belgian yeast, gives you a pretty good idea of how this is going to taste like. Has a full malty body (maltier than many other good Tripels) with a nice amount of floral hops and also some yeast. The spiciness is also there, in a perfect amount. Also some sweet melony bubblegum notes (the ones I had as a kid in the 90s that had stickers of TV shows or comics in them). I like the balanced combination of malts and hoppiness here. Especially the rich maltiness. I like that it’s not overhopped to the point where you can’t appreciate the malts anymore. And of course, the alcohol is easily covered in this one. Top Tripel for sure.

Pours pale lemon yellow, not even reaching golden hues. Head is white and thick.
Smells of grapefruit, orange blossom, plum and iron.
Fresh and watery, with aggressive carbonation. Balanced long finish between bitter and sour. Not bad.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Lots of hop, flowers, yeast.
Golden yellow, amber with a big white head that dissapears soon. Only a bit of foam remains.
Lots and lots of hop, fruit, flowers, slight carbonation.
With three hops, it’s no surprise that hop is a lot of this beer’s taste. The balance is great though, making this beer really nice.
