Full bodied Maris Otter malt with a small addition of wheat and Vienna malt are aromatised by a typical Belgian charge of coriander. The result is a smooth, sweetish, luscious and fruity experience. The peach and orange notes of the malt base are enhanced by the judicious use of a single American hop, centennial. A very satisfying beer with a Belgian character.

Bottle at the "Colin and the Vikings tasting, Goteborg". Poured a hazy straw with a thin broken white head. The aroma is rich fruit malt boozy alcohol. The flavour is medium to strong bitter with a hear burning alcoholic hop floral palate and a long bitter finish. Medium to full bodied with average carbonation and a frothy mouthfeel.

Embrouille (2835) - SWITZERLAND - MAR 6, 2014
Bottled 50cl. Purchased in Drinks of the World, Zurich. Darker in color than your average Abbey Tripel. Tall creamy head, high carbonation. Strong Belgian yeast presence, some coriander sneaking in. Full bodied, fruity. I wasn’t enshrined by grace drinking Bedes Chalice. Almost qualifies for a Belgian Strong Ale to my tastes. Decent and without major flaws.

Bottle @ home. Aroma is some herbal hops, fruity malty and yeasty notes. Flavour is sweet and malty at first, then some spicy hops and a light liquorice and yeasty finish.

gegwilson (3207) - North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JAN 31, 2014
Bottle from the brewery. A hazy golden beer that pours with a huge white head. Sweet and fruit with caramel and pineapple notes. Yeast flavours are prominent too. Full and creamy mouth feel from the high carbonation. Warming alcohol too. Nice.

ComradeK (1109) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - SEP 17, 2013
500ml bottle. Pours a hazy medium gold, with a large off-white head, which lasts very well and leaves reasonable lacing. Orange peel and peach notes mix with a touch of spicy Belgian yeast and light sourdough malt to create the aroma. Lemon zest and orange hops up front lead into spicy Belgian yeast and a touch of dry sherry in the mid-palate. The finish is dry and spicy. This is not a bad attempt at the tripel style overall. It is a little on the simple side, but it is quite pleasant.

Hanoi (835) - Greater Manchester, ENGLAND - AUG 16, 2013
Bottle 1: Flat, stale, no carbonation. Revolting. Bottle 2: Given as a replacement the same. Horrendous beers which should never have left the brewery.

bierkoning (12403) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - JUL 29, 2013
Bottle. Pale amber color. Orange and mandarine curacao in the floral aroma. Full bodied. Floral, alcoholic flavor with tangerine. Almost vinous. More a strong ale as a Belgian tripel.
