A little above average tripel, probably the best beer from Brewery De Koninck, in my opinion at least. Not the best smell but nice carbo and body.

I don’t like the smell of koninck. Other than that it doesn’t have major flaws but i just don’t really like it.

Bottle, poured into weizen glass. Aroma is quite bland, moderate head, creamy but dissipating. Dark brown, sunset amber hints, with numerous particles. Taste is bitter strong alcohol overtones, bitter and burnt with a sustained finish. Metallic and tinny

A tripel that doesn’t really quite cut it, compared to the abbey tripels out there.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Strange aroma, hints of pear/apple cider, some yeast and too much alcohol. Not liking this so far. Got worse with tasting. Way too sweet, artificial pear taste. Where are the hops? Weak body, medium carbonation. Very unimpressive tripel. I had only a third of a bottle and was drinking the last sips with reluctance.

a sweetened triple. some banana and citrus. Too artificial and machinal. Nice for a double, not a triple

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Very dark gold color, near to amber. Big fruit aroma, cherry. Sweet and rounded fruity flavors. Somewhat balanced, though not as dry or hoppy as I would like in a tripel. Very fruity and a bit too sweet. Not very tripel like.

Bottle. Bright golden color, large white head. Peppery, malty, and a bit sweet. Pretty decent example of the style.

bottle from czech beer festival :) ... nice citrus aroma, amber, hazy, minimal head, white foam, light sweetness, medium bitterness, medium body, slick feel, soft carbonation, bitter, long finish, good fresh beer. i přes 8% alc. velmi osvěžující, ale ne nic exklusivního

On-tap at the Quinten Matsijs in Antwerp...
Orangey-copper topped by a billowing white head. Fruity and sweet pale malt in the nose. Hints of alcohol and spice.
Taste is also sweet and fruity with some noble hops evident in the finish. Finishes remarkably clean and the 8% alcohol is masked very well. Some sweet maltiness in the aftertaste.
Pretty fair tripel and certainly drinkable. Worth a try.
