Hazy pale yellow colour with nice lacing. Aroma is fresh and zesty. Flavour has quite a light yeasty taste with a refreshingly dry and bitter finish.

Bottle. Hazy hay yellow liquid with medium white head. Aroma of white pepper, jenka, bubblegum, raw sugar and bread. Taste is dry and light to medium bitter with notes of white pepper, jenka and bread. Light to medium bodied with medium to high carbonation. Really good. My favorite Tripel.

Nice tripel, aroma is not that special but the simple refreshing taste makes this a very nice addition to the Belgian tripels. Like the other beers from De La Senne, the hops cab be easily noticed in this one and that is a good thing.

vadie (537) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 9, 2014
Jaune brilliant opaque avec une énorme mousse blanche. L’arôme des levures belges, un peu fruitée, et un peu d’houblon fraîche. Le goût est très similaire, mais avec un peu de malt au début.

Trappist1 (361) - Diest, BELGIUM - MAR 25, 2014
orange color, with white head. nose: malts, sugar, hop, bit metal, very subdued nose. taste: average carbonation, bit fruity, citrus, peaches. MF: outspoken bitter finish, full body. This is a decent tripel, just lacking a few dots on the i to excel.

maximet (19) - Quebec, CANADA - MAR 17, 2014
UPDATED: MAR 20, 2014 Bottle to tulip glass.
App.: Opaque, straw yellow, with a nice white foam.
Aroma: Citrus with malt sweetness, typical tripel, spiced yeast.
Taste: Pretty bitter for a tripel, sweet, spiced and grassy taste.
Palate: Nice body, not to carbonated, with a slick texture.
Very nice, dry tripel, would be great on a summer night.
