2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
(bottle, 33cl) Slightly hazy, golden colour with a big and slightly off-white foamy head. Cara-malty and biscuity aroma with notes of pears, overripe citrus and traces of alcohol. Moderately sweet flavour, medium bodied with a calm carbonation. Caramel-malt, subdued fruity flavours with mildly spicy notes and a present touch of alcohol during the finish. 13.X.11

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Slightly aged sample Good cream head over quite carbonated foxy-orange beer. Very perfumed nose with rosewater, fruitesters. Sweet, chlidren’s sweets taste, near syrupy. Fruity esters; just not dry in the finish. Very slick, near viscous MF, underattenuated for the "style". Rosewater again in the aftertaste. Clearly the Tripel suffered more under the filtering than the Dubbel - as under the aging.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
330ml bottle, as Triple Blonde, shared with Frau Eva at The House of Beer. Slightly cloudy, amber coloured body. Thin white head. Sweet fruity hops to the nose with tolerable vapour of alcohol. Mild yeasty fruitiness in flavour alongside notes of almond and earthy malts with alcohol lurking behind. Very smooth on the swallow. Quite alright without greater excitements (Rethymno, 16.08.2012).

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle @ home shared with Dutchdrebus. Clear rusty orange to amber color, virtually no head. Smell and taste malts, a bit sweetish, some sugar. Hmm too sweet I think. Fizzy carbonation as well which doesn’t really help. Hmm, disappointing.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. High fluffy and lasting white head. Slighly cloudy peach coloured body. Very sweet aroma of apples and pears hay caramel and honey. Lovely.
Flavor is, as expected, sweet fruity with a low carbonation and a long lasting sweet finish. Alcohol very well hidden.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
330 ml bottle. BB 10/2013. From finestshop.be.
Cloudy ambery golden colour with a small white head.
The aroma is sweet caramel, mild fruits, mild spices, Belgian style yeast and malt. The flavour is more simple with malt, mild hoppy fruitiness, mild yeast and some alcohol. Not very tasty or balanced Tripel.
