Sampled draft @ Modeste 2013. Clear orange with little white head; Smells herbal with plenty of candy sugar, biter spices and an overbearing sweetness. Taste is bitter floral & herbs upfront, followed by a huge amount of candy sugar, pretty sweet, white bread & white sugar BE yeas, some herbal & floral character in the back, oily sweet candy & toffee malts in the middle. Thick toffee & cereal body. Agreeable but not exiting BE tripel.

Brussels bottle. Big time carbonation actually made it tough to pour. Clear copper color with a creamy white head and tons of bubbles rising up. big citrus aroma like mandarin oranges but also a whiff of spice and booze. Very classic tripel taste that starts sweet, brings in some spice and finishes a little boozy. A lingering bitterness from the foam. Very nice.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
On tap at Cafe Moortgat.
Orange golden colour on the body, just a tad hazy. One finger of white head on top, average retention. No lacing on the glass.
Aroma is fruity, hints of apricot. A bit faint.
Very nice taste though, fruit notes are more subtle here, in favour of the hops, providing a quite intense bitterness, but still, fruitiness and bitterness seem to alternate.
Medium body, good carbonation. Nice dryness on the palate.
Overall very nice tripel, more bitter than fruity, just how I like them.
