Bottle, bought @ De Hopduvel, Gent.
Pours lovely clear golden with a large, creamy, white head. Good duration. Aroma has clear curry notes, light chili burn, mild citrus, light mustard seeds. Very spicy. Medium carbonation, quite dry and quite creamy mouthfeel. Flavour has clear chili burn, curry, light sweet maltiness, citrussy zest. Lingering spicy, herbal and chili burning finish.

kraddel (2784) - some beerplace, BELGIUM - JUL 19, 2014
Purchased at BAB 14 , after tasting the delicious cheese that was made with this beer . Pours unclear blonde/orange, good to small white head Smell is dry grains . Intense, yet typical tripel . carbonation is ok . Taste is very unique, yet very bad . It starts nice, dry, drinkable tripel . Than mustard comes in ( ! ) proving not all ideas are good ideas . On top of that feast, you get like some powder spices which also do NOT belong in a decent beer. And most certainly not this overpowering . Needles to say, It is a drainpour . to bad, it started off nicely. But ceriously , if we’re gonna start putting mustard in beer , we can just as well eat toothpaste and concider THAT normal ....

ShivanDragon (1440) - Leeuwarden, NETHERLANDS - MAR 9, 2014
flesje op de terugweg van Gent gekocht bij de HopDuvel. oranje/gouden helder met schuimige witte kraag. aroma iets muffigs, licht zoet, hooi, maar valt over het algemeen tegen smaken zijn redelijk tot zwaar zoet, redelijk kruidig, unieke kruiden combinatie, fenegriek en mosterdzaad. verder granig, zoet en redelijk alcoholisch. de zoetige kruidigheid is iets té overheersend, licht zepig in de mond bij een medium body, lage co2, afdronk een kruidige droogheid. uniek maar ik sla over.

fkoolen (231) - Maastricht, NETHERLANDS - FEB 12, 2014
Slightly cloudy golden colour, lasting foamy head. Aroma and taste are spicy (mustard and fenugreek, so it seems), even a bit smokey and a hint of liquorice, citrus hoppy with a nice bitterness and a little sour tone. Medium bodied, medium carbonation. No big aftertaste, malts, a bit dry. Interesting beer, nicely balanced, not your average tripel.

EddyBeer1 (840) - Brussels, BELGIUM - DEC 30, 2013
Dorée légèrement voilée, effervescence faible et assez fine, col blanc moyen. Les grains se font bien sentir avant que la moutarde n’apparaissent furtivement puis qu’une amertume assez légère ne s’impose sans pour autant prendre le dessus sur le reste. Yum-yummy!

Trappist1 (425) - Diest, BELGIUM - NOV 18, 2013
Golden, hazy, modest white head. Peppery, orange peels, seldery salt gives it a very special nose. Taste is spciy herbal, sparking, CO2 and ends rater quickly. Tad bitter, peppery (with knowing I can taste the mustard, otherwise would not have discovered it.). Very special beer, very nice try, complex, very adventurous, technical correct beer, nothing off. Good for a try.

Borresteijn (4563) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - AUG 17, 2013
33cl Bottle from De Hopduvel, Gent. Clear golden colour, white head. Aroma of fenugreek, soft floral notes, some sweet alcohol. Flavour is also quite spicy from the fenugreek, bit it’s not a refreshing spice, making this clash with the nice citrussy and floral tripel flavours. Medium bodied. Fenugreek and mustard are two things I associate with cheese, not beer. Nice experiment, but never again.

jfb (3687) - Freising, GERMANY - MAY 15, 2013
(bottle) pours a hazy golden colour with a frothy white head. aroma of worcester sauce, barbecue marinade, roasted malts, herbal hops and candis sugar, very savoury, with a hint of orange peel and liquorice. flavour is mostly the same, aromatic wood, herbal hops, orange peel, pale malts and caramel. medium to heavy-bodied with average carbonation.
