On tap at Moeder Fontainas. This is a very pale yellow beer. Id say its more of a hoppy Duvel style than a traditional abbey tripel, with a spicy yeastiness, perfumy aroma and long bitter finish. Slightly absurdly I was disappointed, drinking it straight after Zinnebir my expectations maybe got ahead of me - these De La Senne beers are excellent. On a side note, they do cool labels on bottles too!

Iet wat zoetige kruidige geur, vleugje hop. Zachte smaak. Beetje caramel, kruiden. Stiekem bittertje op achtergrond. Heerlijk bier.

ChtiBreizh (219) - Rennes, FRANCE - AUG 20, 2015
Blond with an average head. Hoppy, malts, spices, yeast. Dry and bitter start with a sweet malty finish. There are better examples of triples available, not as micro but anyway...

TtV (251) - Nijmegen, NETHERLANDS - AUG 12, 2015
Bottle 33cl. Hazy yellow gold with a firm white head that fades somewhat. Aroma with malts and a slightly sour touch. The taste is plain bitter with the Co2 immediately present. The taste develops slowly and beautifully into a rinse.

ClubGonzo (4753) - Bergen, NORWAY - AUG 4, 2015
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 (795) - Linkping, 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
