9.2%. Orange/golden colour, with bubbly white head. Taste is yeasty, orange, lemon, yoghurt. Later more spices and light malts. Quite sour, with some sweetness. Mouth is medium with average carbonation, no alcohol presence. This beer is really weird. Very, very sour, not like any other tripel I’ve ever had. Not bad though.

Bottled. Pours slightly hazy amber with a huge lacing, off-white head. Aroma of caramel, yeast some fruit and coriander. Sweet flavor that ends up more dry and bitter and with some alcohol. Light to medium bodied oily text. and soft carb. A nice tripel.

Pours a cloudy dark orange with a small beige head. Surprising aroma of citrus, some apple, coriander, some more spices. Has a sweetness to it, but also sour notes. Somewhat wine-like. I did not expect this at all from a Tripel.

Es una cervesa amb gust avinatat. Es molt fresca i pasa molt fina. No es trobem molt els lupos

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
750ml bottle, July 2012, 9.2%. Clear orange red, sparkling, large fluffy white head. Looks great, and smells better. Strawberry, caramel, some white wine vinegar up front, and settles down to smell exactly like pineapple juice. Carbonation is spritzy, body medium, slightly foamy, leaves a sticky residue. Taste - sweet caramel malts with cherry and strawberry flavours. Slightly sour. A very different take on a tripel - only some background yeast and spice. Drying over time. Alcohol well hidden in flavour. Very good.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Pours dark golden with off-white head. Nose of the regular phenols and esters... but also has tomato. I love fruity tripels and this one was orange and peach, some spice... and more tomato. Sounds disgusting, but I really liked it, had never seen yeast do this before. I usually just buy one De Molen as they’re expensive for just one bottle, but looking back at my notes I think I’ll try this again because wtf.
