Very nice golden color, relatively tasty, in the average of Belgian beers. Not a winner, not a looser. But very unnoticeable in the Belgian beer forest...

Ar: Peach, orange peel - some oxidation - a little moss and black pepper.
Ap: Hazy gold - medium white head with moderate-low retention, leaves a ring of foam and a very thin webbing.
T: Juicy peach, banana - black pepper, peach - some tartness, orange rind - medium bitterness, fairly clean - spicy hops.
P: Medium-light body with very high carbonation - finish is very dry.
O: Good trippel - nothing outstanding, but well-made all around, with a nice mix of fruit, spice, and bitterness.

Bottle. Pours clear golden with a smaller white head. Thick layer of yeast in the bottle....watch out. Aromas of banana, spicy clove, sugar, and some lemon. Nice carbonation. Not much on the flavor forefront. Light spice and fruit. Alcohol hidden fairly well. Eh just ok

Jeg synes den er skuffende i smagen sammenlignet med mange andre trippel øl

Amber, modest white head. Fruits and caramel. Light bitterness. Strong yet rather smooth. Found this much better that other people’s ratings would indicate, a nice tripel.

Bit boring and average tripel. Taste is quite flat and the body thin. Pilsner like tripel.

Thx! to Kraddel for the bottle. 33 cl. bottle sampled. Presumably 2008 or 2009 Vintage. Clear amber with an off-white head. Nose carries very dominant oxidation notes but this has oxidized very well, honey & caramel notes, flowers, sugar, fruits with light dates. Taste is the same deal with oxidation, faint sherry, honey, caramel, lots of brown & candy sugar, toffee, sweet, flowers, faint floral, biscuit, toast,… Slick but not very heavy oxidized. Didn’t expect anything from this one, I am a bit surprised as to how well this has kept, tripel’s should have the ability to withstand some time. This I assume was a mediocre beer that probably drinks better now than it ever did. Also where is this like distributed? I have never seen this one but there are lots of recent ratings of it up here.
