~Sour apply aroma with citrus and spice, refreshing and spritzy ~pours a cloudy amber orange color with lasting small creamy head ~Sourness tart, fruity flavor with bready malts and balanced spiciness. ~Medium full bodied with high Co2, lingering sourness. ~Not what i was expecting but interesting and enjoyable. Sourness adds complexity.

Rob_D_UK (783) - Surrey, ENGLAND - APR 27, 2014
Poured from the bottle into the branded glass. Golden pour with a white head. Quite hoppy for a tripel. Taste had a nice level of bitterness.

ippopotamo36 (173) - Rome, ITALY - APR 27, 2014
In Leuven at the ZBF. Yellow clear unfiltered appearance, white tick foamy head. Quite anonymous nose: little notes of fresh wheat harvest. Fantastic mouth! Complexity of fresh notes, flowers, yeast and a gentle ending hint of sourness. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Icedwarf (331) - Etten-Leur, NETHERLANDS - APR 26, 2014
Troebel donker geel bier met mooie schuimkraag. Smaak is krachtig, citrus en licht zoet. Blijft lang hangen. Uitstekend bier.

nathanvc (55) - Brugge, BELGIUM - APR 12, 2014
Inviting smell. Tastes sweet at first, with caramel. Hoppy and dry afterwards. Nice aroma but not so special in terms of taste. Average, but enjoyable tripel.

corkyrory66 (580) - BELGIUM - APR 9, 2014
Triple de 8 % abv, de chez de Ryck, qui s’appelait auparavant « Gouden Arend », d’où le nom de cette triple. Mon exemplaire a dépassé de 3 ans exactement sa date limite, et pourtant il est très vif à l’ouverture. Couleur doré soutenu à ambre léger. Léger trouble due à l’ouverture mouvementée... Bulles fines mais pas nombreuses et pas vives (sans doute l’âge). Mousse blanche qui tombe vite et vient napper correctement. 1ère bouche souple avec une belle entame malt/houblon, et des fruits blancs. Arrière-bouche assez ample, fruitée et maltée. 2ème avec malt et épices. Arrière-bouche assez originale, fleurie. 3ème avec la même combinaison. Arrière-bouche bien complète. La longueur entame sur l’alcool, avec des fruits secs dont des raisins et une touche exotique. La levure est souple mais de très beau caractère. L’alcool fait son travail proprement, et je soupçonne l’âge de l’avoir dopé quelque peu... La finale développe quelques nuances supplémentaires. CONCLUSION : une bière qui est bien travaillée, sur une recette certainement plus qu’éprouvée, puisque la fondation de la brasserie remonte à 1886. Il faut nuancer ma dégustation par l’âge de mon exemplaire, mais c’est toujours une très belle épreuve pour une grande bière.
