COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
It has a very big head indeed - pour it gently - and a very clean palate, beginning with a dry, lightly citric fruitiness, and finishing with a distinctive and delicate, perfumy, hop character. Very light and fluffy in texture, giving little hint of its strength.

More like a Blonde to my taste! Dry, yeasty with a definite citrus presence. Floral aroma! I kept looking for some complexity as it warmed slightly but I detected very little.Bitter on the finish but it does not linger at all1 Quite disappointing!!

BadAprilia1000 (260) - Sevierville, Tennessee, USA - AUG 28, 2014
Pours a golden clear color with a good sized head. Aroma is fruit, yeast, spice, coriander, some lemon and orange zest, slight bitter but not hops, more herbal, and some apricot. Taste is very yeasty, bready, banana, apricot, much weaker spice than the aroma, and a thick orange flavor that is sweet, not citrus bitter. Overall a good beer, very traditional tripel, worth trying for being so well known.

MaBeer1972 (1292) - Taunton, Massachusetts, USA - AUG 25, 2014
Bottle from Julio’s. Poured into a snifter. A hazy/murky light orange brew. Frothy egg-white/meringue head that settles to a thick lace. Mild aromas and flavors with this one. Some bread, some citrus some yeast. Kinda bland.

Hazy pale yellow liquid with small white head. Body medium to light, medium carbonation. Watery and dissapointing but drinkable.

Botella de 33 cl en varias ocasiones, época belga, la ultima mas o menos en septiembre de 2008 en el lúpulo, con consumo pref para 05-06-2009. Buena tripel con cuerpo medio de 7.5 vol y ligeros sabores afrutados. Buena.

VDuquerroux (270) - Airvault, FRANCE - AUG 15, 2014
Bottle, 33cL. Home. A clear sparling orange golden beer with a huge white head; good retention. Fruity aroma (citrus), herbs, biscuit. Medium refreshing bitter, light sweet. Medium body, silky texture, high carbonation, short bitter finish with a sweet note. Overall, a really good "Tripel" : nice balance, herbal, silky. Some similarities with Tripel Karmeliet.

Een heerlijke tripel. Geur fris, bloesem. Smaak diep: gistig, graan. Verdient meer aandacht.
