3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle, Alvinne shop, consumed at home. Average lacing, golden orange colour, moderate carbanation, oily, creamy, grassy, floral and perfume. A descent autumn beer. It’s raining outside so I thought this would be ideal and it is. A top brew.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
rich, thick body. Draught at the brewery. Deep orange-brown with a fine head. Fruit and honey, citrus earthy aroma. Sweet and boozy, with honey, lemon, orange. Nice fruit, nice balance, though a bit too boozy. Alcohol really evident. Delicious, though, slightly vineous, approachng a barley wine in many ways.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottled, 330ml at Trappistlokaal t’Klooster Restaurant, Delft. Clouded amber with white head. The nose promises a big lemon hoppy beer, which the beer itself delivers well, orange and peach, in an IPA style. Lasting grapefruit, fleshy and very cleansing. Excellent with a superb meal. Can’t want any more.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
750ml Bottle. Slightly hazy orangeish golden pour with a foamy white head that doesn’t last too long. Aroma has notes of caramel, honey, wheat, banana and clove. Flavour is very similar to aroma but with more than a hint of tropical fruit and some noticeable candy sugar. Thick, oily mouthfeel with fairly low carbonation and a lingering bittersweet finish. This is a pretty good yet uncomplicated tripel, bordering on being too sweet but still nice.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours amber with a crisp white head, which lows to a lasting lacing. The carbonation is just about perfect, lending this beer a velvety mouth feel. Aroma of a tripel, but quite an IPA nose too. There are grassy hops, pine and peach, candied sugar and something of spices - possibly star anise. The taste is malty and fruity but unlike the classic Belgian tripels as there is not enough of a yeast profile. It finishes with warm apples and hops and a well balanced sweetness. De Molen may have been going for the IPA Tripel that has found such favour recently. All the same, it is quite delicious.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Without knowing that it was a triple, I easily identified it as such, because it leaps out at you with woody, yeasty, and moderately fruity notes. A little honey-like sweetness too. Great smoothness with a little bitterness, soft. (on tap at brewery)

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Dark brown beer with a strong head. The aroma is spiced and mildly sour, and the flavour is quite yeasty and vinous and mildly spiced. Overall a nice drinakable beer.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Small to medium off-white head, very stable, fed by slow bubbling in pale copper beer. Dry, liqueurish nose, white candi sugar ?, garden herbs, citrussy-spiced. Bitter-toasted flavour, white candi sugar, fruity-citruspeel & strawberry liqueur, fruitesters. Bit burning MF, with very thick, viscous, liqueurish texture. Long sweet aftertaste, perfumed. Classical sweet strong blond ale. Well-crafted, not my favourite flavourprofile.
