Kleurplaatje (23) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - OCT 8, 2014
Pours hazy dark yellow with a slowly disappearing white head. Strong aromas of citrus hops, bit yeasty as well, coriander notes... Smells lovely. Nice mild and fresh bitter taste in the beginning. Nice sweet (not to sweet though) grainy and spicy (coriander...) aftertaste with some small hoppy bitterness and a little warmish alcoholic mouthfeel. It’s aftertaste sweetness reminds a bit of a Weizen-type of beer. Not what you would expect from a tripel, but certainly not disturbing. Medium bodied, thinnish texture (Not that thin, but I would have loved a bit thicker mouthfeel) and an average carbonation. Not a bad brew. It suprised me in quite a positive way. Balanced sweetness, a lovely aroma and pretty easy drinkable (maybe a bit too drinkable).

DwarfeD (1039) - Amersfoort, NETHERLANDS - OCT 4, 2014
33cl bottle at home. Hazy orange with a medium slightly off-white head. Medium to full body with low carbonation. Pretty sweet with some bitter tones. Peach, citrus, grass and herbs. Altough its sweetness is quite upfront, I somehow still like this brew.

On tap at brewery; golden a bright yellowish color. Aroma and taste of lemon? this was one interesting, though not the best example of a Belgium triple ... I would not buy again
