UPDATED: MAY 25, 2014
Nov 2013 - 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. (4.0)
May 2014 330ml bottle, July 2012, 9.2%. Clear orange / red, sparkling, large foamy off-white head. Aroma - sweet caramel, floral. Body - medium to light, quite foamy, low carbonation. Taste - very sweet caramel, brocolli / spinach, dank water. Goes to show the variability of beer - the last bottle was much nicer. (3.4)

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.

Not impressed with this one. Way too sweet and boozy in character. This was bottled 3 years ago and not sure if this style ages well but I suspect not! Plenty of malt, some hop bitterness but overtaken by sweetness. Acrid dryish end.

Det här var gott, men det var extra gott och passande till maten på de Molens restaurang. Smaken var funkig med inslag av malt, bröd och krydda, kroppen var bastant men balansen var inte helt på plats.
