A pretty good beer. Smells a little citrusy, but definitely more like a tripel. Taste is quite interesting, but still pretty tasty.

Ar: Restrained peach and orange - spicy hops, lemon zest - some candied orange.
Ap: Straw gold and clear - medium-large white head with moderate retention - leaves a bit of foam lacing, with some suds.
T: Clean pils malt, fully and grainy - orange and lemon zest - medium-high bitterness - peach and apricot, herbal hops - finish is clean bitterness and orange peel.
P: Medium-light body with very high carbonation - finish is very dry.
O: Clean and bright IPA-tripel hybrid - alcohol and spice are restrained, but still noticeable - very bright and fresh, nice.

Fine, sophisticated and well balanced Belgian ale. Strong and hoppy, still quite easy to drink.

4.6 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
As a admirer of both tripel and IPA beers it was about time to taste this one.
Aroma is a nice mixture of fruits like in a tripel and hops like in an IPA. Very appealing. Appearence: nothing special but the color and foam are nice.
Taste: better than I expected. The fruits remind me of a La Trappe like tripel and the hops are out there, and even though not as much present as in an IPA it fulfills this beer. One of my personal favorites.

Bleke goudkleur, dikke laag schuim. Weinig koolzuur. Ruikt hoppig. Smaakt top, een zachte IPA. Topper!

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bouteille de 750 ml de blonde. Arôme de résine cèdre et pamplemousse. En bouche, la complexité du parfum se poursuit. Amertume puissante mais agréable en fin de bouche. Notes subtiles de gomme balloune. Pas pour les débutants !

Hazy golden body with a white head. Good retention. Hoppy character but mild biterness.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a cloudy gold with large rocky white head that lasts, effervescent, and leaves lace all up the glass. Aroma is mostly belgian yeast esters and phenols, spicy, fruity, citrus, banana, floral, and perfumy. Flavour is a spicy, fruity and an alcohol blend, citrus/orangey, med-high bitterness(lingers a little), a faint pilsner malt character, light honey like sweetness though finishes a medium dry. Great belgian beer, if your not careful this could really have you seeing double after a few!

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Slightly hazy gold with fluffy white head. Grapefruit and lychee in the smell. Very grassy, citrus peel, yeasty, light malty touch. Green apple. Taste is quite bitter, in a unripe fruit kind of way, both from hops and yeast. Medium body, not much alcohol presence. Drinkable, but too one-dimensional for me. Hops and yeast don’t work together too well here, could use more maltiness too.
