3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
It was a light orange/brown color and slightly hazy, though not as hazy as the Amerikaans. My first thought was that it smelled like a hefe. It has the same great body as the Americaans though it was not as fizzy. It tasted rich and malty like wet bread smells on a hot day, and it had a slight bitter finish.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
A light amber pours with golden edges and highlights and a short, soapy white head that quick to low but lasts as lacing. The nose is has the aromas traditional to a tripel; yeast, bread, spices and light floral notes. Though, this also has a few notes of a pale ale in it, being quite citric and bitter - and a hint of resinous pine. In the mouth it’s buttery and yeasty, with the hops having a greener side than usual - but pleasantly so. There’s Belgian candied sugar and some light malts. And then there’s the alcohol. You can find it easily, which is odd for only 9.2% ABV. The mouth feel is thick with a fine carbonation. Finishes on spices, butter and an increasingly bitter or dry end. Nice but not the best from the brewery or of the style.
