BOTTLE 33 CL. Like any other tripel, it has a deceivingly light body, some malty/honey sweetness, perfumy blond fruit and a touch of alcohol. But unlike most of them, the fruity notes a subdued, while the spicy bitterness is amplified. You also get a nice „warm” herbal hops aroma. The finish is long and bitter. It is pretty clear and clean, but if you pour the big yest sediment, you get that brewbup-like young yeasty beer touch. Good, though I prefer milder, more fragrant tripels.

Hermod (3636) - Vantaa, FINLAND - JAN 28, 2015
33cl bottle, bottled on 18/03/14. Pours unclear golden color, white head. Beautiful. Aroma has lemon, belgian yeast, floral notes, some perfume even. Flavor has citrus, hops, floral notes. This is dry, really dry. Orange, perfumy notes lingers in my mouth for long. Bitter, dry. Really good. Some alcohol warmth.

CraftyBeerTour (98) - Barcelon, SPAIN - JAN 25, 2015
33cl bottle. Aroma is champagne-like, bread dough, slight honeyish, some peppery fizziness in the noise, chamomile, but dusty too (glass or beer). Hazy (sediment poured into glass) golden body, persistent white foam. Sweet biscuit and some orange marmalade bitterness, persistent, quite intense and enjoyable. Lots of effervescence which results in a creamy mouthfeel. Pleasant pithy aftertaste.

guiroul33 (132) - Bordeaux, FRANCE - JAN 24, 2015
Bottle 33cl from brasserie de la Senne, @ home. You can feel the caracteristic yeast from de la senne, as well as the usual bitterness, but also a sweeter taste that makes it more accessible (and more dangerous as you don’t feel the 8% abv!). Nice tripel.

dambor (101) - Berlin, GERMANY - JAN 21, 2015
Pours light yellow with very nice head. Aroma: white fruit coupled with herbs. Taste: very smooth and easy drinkable, alcohol very well hidden. A good beer, but not sure I would call it a tripel.

cmc619 (455) - California, USA - JAN 17, 2015
Continuing through the De La Senne tasting. Hazy orange-gold with a lasting white head. Almost a cherry/Halls aroma and flavor to it. A bit strange. Slight harshness on the palate and too bitter, I think, for this beer.
