3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
14-Mar-12 (750-ml bottle)
This is decidedly not a sweet style of Belgian Tripel; the beer is more a hoppy, herbal, and spicy example rather than sweet or fruity. Aromas of grass hops, dried herbs, table grapes, and bready malt lead into flavors of coriander, pepper, hay, stone fruit, and bready, grainy malt. The beer is fully attenuated, very dry, no obvious sweetness is apparent, and the hops and herbs contributed light-medium bitterness. Medium-full in weight without the benefit of any sugar, and carbonation is medium to medium-high, but still smooth. Hazy, golden in color, and capped by nearly an inch of off-white head that settles to a dusty sheet. Overall, a different kind of Tripel, and one that I really appreciate. I’m less of a fan of the sweeter style of Tripel, and I’m pleased that this one is dry, hoppy, and herbal.

Good tripel, not quite up there with the best. Honey coloured, slightly hazy, with a head as thick as shaving foam. Medium body and carb. Aroma of spiced fruit - very light and zesty. Tastes of apple, pear and coriander, with a slightly tart aftertaste. Nice and creamy too.

A beer honest without being the best, you can see a beer, enjoy. Evolution lacks a bit of balance and depth.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from Dranken Verheyen in Poppel. The beer is light blonde/yellow colored and pours a stable white head, with nice carbonation. The aroma is a nice palate of sweetness from fruits, like bananas and citrus, spices and a little alcohol. The taste is light sweet with a nice fruitiness and some hop notes. Also a light spiciness with tones of pepper and coriander is noticable. The finish is light bitter and spicy. Nice tripel, but the taste could have been more full bodied.
