Golden hue with fluffy white head that quickly dissipates, this beer has sweet fruity aroma and flavor. A pretty standard tripel.

corkyrory66 (921) - BELGIUM - AUG 7, 2015
Triple artisanale de 8,5 % abv (fermentation haute, refermentée .. cela va de soi). Ce qui va moins de soi, c’est la couleur ambrée un peu caramel … Léger voile de levure, très joli. Bulles fines en fontaine centrale tourbillonnante, très vives. Mousse blanc cassé, bien crémeuse, stable à 4 mm. Arômes de malt grillé, noisettes, haricots blancs, pointe de genièvre. 1ère bouche douce, soyeuse, à la très belle entame, maltée, légèrement épicée. Arrière-bouche pleine, longue, nuancée. 2ème bouche riche à souhait, avec une pointe de Brett. Arrière-bouche large, vaste, complexe. 3ème à la belle rondeur, avec des fruits mûrs, du bois de fût. Arrière-bouche riche et bien équilibrée. Longueur avec une pointe de cognac et de cidre vieux, épice muscadée. Jambes fines, très marquées. Levure fine, épicée, délicate. Très jolie ligne. Alcool très bien, progressif, actif sur les saveurs. Finale à la très belle tenue, et encore d’autres nuances. CONCLUSION : une triple ambrée qui se révèle très originale, très dense, nuancée. En bref importante, voire capitale pour le genre.

Muggus69 (1553) - Yarram, Vic, AUSTRALIA - MAR 1, 2015
330mL bottle from International Beer Collector BB 20/06/2016 Bright orange body with uniform haze, Holds a small but creamy white head. Restrained aroma; sweet malts, white sugar, faint peppery esters. Full body, creamy texture & carbonation, some boozy warmth. Sweetness continues on the body - white sugar, cereals, pale toffee, with spicy, peppery phenolics. Finish is a slight bit astringent, with a relatively high bitterness & warming booze. Below par sort of Tripel - whilst not bad, it’s somewhat unbalanced.

Alengrin (3360) - BELGIUM - OCT 28, 2014
Winter tripel with a creamy, yellowish white, regular head and cloudy yellowish peach blonde colour. Malty and dried fruity aroma, apple, apricot, dry yeastiness, herbal hop bitterness in the finish. Ordinary but well-balanced tripel.

JanLaursen (3227) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - SEP 21, 2014
Flaske, 33 cl. Klar, gylden med et rødligt skær, fluffy hvidt skum. Sødlig, gæret, abrikos-fersken-og honning-noter. Krydret, astringerende, fyldig, alkoholisk. Belgisk med belgisk på. Not my cup of beer.
