Clear golden orange pour with a shining white head and lots of lacing. Fruity estery nose. Nicely Balanced with a Smooth light body. Clean. So much milder and less sweet than most trippels. Well done!

330ml bottle. Light floral and orange peel aroma. Pours a cloudy dark yellow with a frothy off-white head and good lacing. Lemon, lime and orange citrus flavours with notes of coriander, pepper and cloves. Full bodied with some warming alcohol sensation. Long bitter citrus finish.

heavy (2663) - Split, CROATIA - JUL 16, 2016
May ’16. A 0.33 l bottle. It poured hazy pale yellow body with medium sized head. A sharp tripel aroma - apple, orange, vanilla, coriander, alcohol. Flavor was bitter, apple, grass, coriander, citrus, grainy with a touch of alcohol. A fine balance of it all, really pleasant. Full bodied with long bitter finish, like lemon and orange peel. At the very end it became papery dry, but not in the bad way. Very good!

Maakun (3397) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - JUL 15, 2016
Bottle at home. Slight hazy light golden with big white head. Pils malts, flowery, honey, light lime, coriander, spicy yeast, soft milky and creamy. Over medium bitter and almost medium sweet. Bit over medium bodied with creamy feel and soft fizzy carbonation. Nice beer but a bit too bitter and flowery for me, nice mouthfeel though.

Yeast, citrus, malts, golden qith a not very persistant white head, medium body, medium carbonation, again citrus but also an hoppy and bitter profile instead the typical tripel sweetness that i love...maybe not a victory but a spark of revolution in this classic belgian style; good job old man.

PietS (148) - Bergen op Zoom, NETHERLANDS - JUN 21, 2016
A nice bitter tripel, really distinguishes itself from the average sweet tripel. Has some sweetness as well. A bit spicy and floral aromas. But the beer still tastes fresh. Nice carbonation.

Vells (1428) - Rīga, Latvija, LATVIA - JUN 17, 2016
Feels bit harsh, but very enjoyable, floral hops, bit lemony some herbal aspect. Light sweetness, moderate to light bitterness. Decent

Hopverdju (549) - BELGIUM - JUN 8, 2016
Goudblond met witte schuimkraag. Geur: gewoon een leuke neus, moutzoetig, kruidig, fruitig. Smaak: goede combinatie van wat zoetigheid en wat bitterheid. Redelijk volmondig. Goede koolzuurprikkel. Lekkere tripel.
