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.

KajII (799) - Macon, North Carolina, USA - JUL 9, 2012
Bottle. The pour was a light golden amber with an average sized (1-2 finger) white creamy head that lasted throughout and produced excellent sheeting of lace which totally engulfed the whole glass. The aroma was of a grain malt, perfume hops and a soapy yeast with notes of citrus (lemon), honey and coriander. The taste was lightly sweet with a malty wheat feel and a hint of honey from the beginning with the finish being a little bitter and a tad sour with a strong yeast presence and a light spicy hop ending. The flavor lasted only a short while with the mild hoppy spice taste and a slight alcohol warming sensation left behind. Mouthfeel was between light and medium in body with a dry creamy texture and a very lively carbonation. Overall a Tripel that is not overpowered by any one flavor, on the contrary the blending of flavors in this brew is exquisitely done...

tmoreau (2985) - Lombard, Illinois, USA - AUG 20, 2015
Shared 750 ml. bottle poured to snifters, displaying a cloudy, orangey gold color, with a fluffy layer of white head foam, and web-like lacing. The nose was expressively fruity, with a smooth and fresh mixture of citrus, stone, and dried fruit, subtle spice, and a pixy-stix-like sweetness. The taste was similar notes as the aroma, better than light bodied, with a light creaminess, and lively spritz to the carbonation that both elevated the texture. The finish was pleasantly dry. Really appreciated the nuances of this Tripel.

Sparf (178) - Östersund, SWEDEN - AUG 13, 2015
Svag, jästsyrlig doft med fruktiga toner. Därtill ladugård, citrusolja och lite deg. Alkoholen känns men är inte påträngande. Vackert gyllene, något gulare än många andra tripplar. Tätt, fint skum med utmärkta lämningar. Smaken är syrligt skarp med gräsaktig citrus och tydlig vetesmak. Hyfsat ren och tydlig i sin karaktär men ingen toppklass. För stor kolsyremängd. Eftersmaken är värmandealkohol och en framväxande svag sötma.

metalspice (330) - Jevnaker, NORWAY - AUG 10, 2015
Gyllent med høyt skum med store bobler. Lukter banan, krydder og alkohol. Gjæraktige toner i smaken sammen med noe sitrus og en viss beskhet. Fyldig og lang avslutning.

33 cl systembolaget. Den näst bästa i fyrpacket jag köpte. Men fyrpacket är inte värt att köpa.

Wanne (65) - - AUG 6, 2015
Golden colored beer, with a white head. Standard aroma of cereal from the malt, bit of grass from the hops. Refreshing taste, ome grass and herbs. Not a bad tripel, but not mind-blowing as well

Goldene, leicht trübe Farbe. Wunderbare Aromen nach Aprikosen und Zitrusfrüchten. Toller Schaum, lange anhaltend. Im Mund pfeffrig, aber perfekt ausgewogen mit der Süsse. Super Tripel!
