Tripel is one of my favorit beer styles, very nice beer with full body, think they use another yeast for a year now, but it’s still pretty with good carbon dioxide in it

Bottle from Cracked Kettle. Fierce orange colour, proud head. Spicy orange nose. Taste of orange, honey and caramel. Quite sweet, some yeast. Very nice. Alcohol well hidden (almost). Syrupy finish.

Nice beer, but a little to sweet for my taste. Good creamy foamy head, golden yellow colour. Malty aroma’s give a sweettaste overall. The aftertaste is pleasant and lasting into bitters.

Rastacouere (6174) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 19, 2007
Hazy golden beer with a light, but everlasting, white head. Straightforward, alcoholic and gently yeasty example. Its saazy floral hops are diplomatic and elegant, fitting the ensemble, while its pils malts come out clean and fresh. A textbook tripel that would unfortunately appear too subtle in a blind tasting. Light-medium, comfortable body with light-bubbled carbonation. Minimally biscuity and honeyed. Fresh stuff.

Courtesy of bierkoning, ty Edo! Hazy orange color, decent creamy white head, some lace. Strong fruity aroma: mango, banana and lime, also a bit spicey. Sweetish tripel, some candy sugar and lots of fruits: ruby grapefruit, banana. A bit crisp carbonation, decent malty backbone. Light alcohol, spices and hops in the finish and aftertaste. When fruityness dries out, hops are dominating the aftertaste. Balanced, enjoyable Dutch-type tripel.

Bottle. [thank you, Skortila!]
’new’ version
For a tripel, this is relatively dark - a little hazy orange with a few particles and a small, very creamy off white head. Fine lacing. Aroma is herbal and fruity - lemons, oranges, thyme, grass, strawberries - a bit grainy as well. Fizzy and lively mouthfeel. Flavour is rather sweet for a tripel, but there is an orangy zesty tart feel hidden behind it. Very fruity with oranges dominating with a nice viniousness that never dominates. Very complex with a slight peppery yeast and a slight stickyness to the mouthfeel at the end combined with the aforementioned zest. Great beer... and I mean REALLY great!

Orange coloured, lasting head. Fruity and yeasty aroma, quite nice. Somewhat sweet flavour with some fruity notes, very balanced. Another good brew from De Molen.

Orange colour, small white head. Malty and fruity aromas. Alcohol doesn’t cut through the fruity tastes. Nice full body.

Tap@ the brewery. Aroma is yeasty and quite fruity, even some banana in it. Nice. Hazy, orange coloured with an off-white lasting head. Taste is sweet, bit siruppy, quite fruity, yeasty. Pleasant, well brewed tripel.
