Bottle. Pours a slightly hazy dark golden body with a large creamy white head. Aroma is citrus, wet grass, orange zest, straw, pale malts and hints of clove, herbs and mild herbal notes. Taste is grapefruit, wet grass, bitter herbs, citrus zest and hints of pine, floral tones, faint nuts and straw in the back. Medium body, medium to high carbonation. A bit more hops actually livens up the ol’ tripel style, which appears re-vamped and yet true to style in this lovely interpretation by de la Senne. Pleasant and spicy, this packs more flavors than most of its kin.

neongolden (774) - Linköping, Sweden/Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 2, 2015
(330ml bottle @ Bia Mara, Brussels, July 26 2015) Pours hazy pale gold with a moderate dense white head lingering with lace. Aroma semisweet mix of pale malt, light marmalade, orange pith, herbal hops, cut flowers, white bread. On the palate, mix of pale Pilsnerish malts, sweet orange, hints of candy sugar, aggressively herbal hops and maybe coriander in behind. Hops really take over the finish, which is dry and bitter and herbal/spicy with some grain. Medium full bodied with fairly high carbonation and hidden alcohol. Bitter with a hint of tripel rather than vice versa, not a match for the best abbey-type versions but a good simple drinker with fish and chips.

Hoppy nose for a triple. Hazy light yellow with a fluffy head. White sugar and lots of hops, some earth and nuts. More bitterness in the finish, but also a pleasant sweetness. Some alcohol at the end

Not very triple like....and that’s ok. Its a tasty beer. Hoppy with Belgian yeast flavours and aromas. Well balanced. Very nice.

Flanfl (250) - Bordeaux, FRANCE - JUL 15, 2015
Cloudy yellow colour, huge white head. Yeasty and hoppy aroma with sweet malt. Flavour of sweet malt, buscuit then comes a good bitterness. Liquorice is present as well. Long finish, starts sweet then floral hops and finaly dry bitterness. Medium body and carbo. A different interpretation of the triple style. Still, rules aside it's a good beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Habanero (3278) - Tranbjerg, DENMARK - JUL 10, 2015
Bottled. Pours hazy golden with a large, lacing, fluffy off-white head. Aroma of yeast, hay, caramel and spices. Sweet flavor that ends up dry and slightly bitter. Medium bodied, oily texture and average carbonation. A very nice and quite hoppy Triple.

tfredvik (1417) - Oslo, NORWAY - JUL 5, 2015
Cloudy medium golden to orange body with a large, creamy, off-white, very long-lived head that laces the glass well. Strong aroma of Belgian yeast, pale malts, spices and light fruits (especially apples and pears) and a floral background. Strong flavour of Belgian yeast, spices, fruits, lemon, honey, alcohol and flowers in the back. Moderate to light sweet taste, with a moderate bitter (and that’s pretty bitter for a tripel!), fairly long-lived and quite dry finish. Close to full body, syrupy texture and lively carbonation. A very nice one, if you find the average tripel too little bitter.
[33 cl bottle, enjoyed 3 months after bottling, from Vinmonopolet Online]
