Bottle at Sean and Rushes, Leicester. Pours cloudy yellow, with a ring of froth. Smells beautiful: lemon, wheat, Belgo yeastiness. Taste is beautifully dry; packed with lemon, which squelches; pockets of pin-prick sweetness. Beautiful mouthfeel. A delightful beer. Really tremendous.

Hazy golden, airy and rocky white head. Fruity, malty and hoppy aroma, rather light. Flavour is fruity, spicy and sweet. Strong malt and clear hops. Fluffy mouthfeel, nice.

Lele (187) - Padova, ITALY - FEB 27, 2015
ASPETTO: tra biondo oro carico e il leggerissimo ambrato. Schiuma bianca e persistente. Torbido, si vedono delle "file" di lieviti in sospensione. AROMA: molto piacevole, soprattutto floreale e di frutta gialla, con un tocco di erbaceo. GUSTO: all’abbocco è dolce, un buon fruttato (unito con un tocco di mieloso) che lascia presagire che ci troviamo davanti ad una grande birra. Poi però decade: i troppi lieviti in sospensione fanno percepire l’ultima parte del sorso e il retrogusto abbastanza amarognolo, ma di un amarognolo non piacevole, che lascia una brutta sensazione sulla lingua. Se mi ricapiterà di berla, sicuramente non verserò nel bicchiere i lieviti presenti nel fondo della bottiglia. L’alcool non è altissimo (8°) ma da leggermente alla testa.

Beer4000 (4771) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - FEB 22, 2015
On tap @ Kick. Unclear golden body with a fine, stable, foamy white head. Aroma has mild pale malt, light citric fruit, lemon and a bit spicy. Flavor feels light malty, refreshing fruity, balanced bitterness, spicy, grassy, floral and orange zest. This is a rather unusually trippel with much more bitterness than normal, but nothing reminds of the modern hoppy bitterness, the beer is fruity, but the bitterness feels more like herbal/grassy and citric zest. Very pleasant and a bit unusual, still not fantastic.

SinH4 (497) - SWITZERLAND - FEB 19, 2015
Golden color with medium white head. Sweet, floral, perfumy aroma. Taste is bitter and dry, unusual for a Tripel. Good carbonation, but low for a Tripel. Fine!

Ysok02 (141) - MOns, BELGIUM - FEB 12, 2015
Robe dorée, belle mousse. Nez complexe sur le houblon, le pamplemousse, un coté floral, de la pomme compotée, une pointe de levure. Bouche à l’attaque tendue, une très belle structure, une amertume marquée mais bien compensée par la puissance et la longueur aromatique de la bière. Un triple puissante et dominée par l’amertume mais d’un équilibre impressionnant.

hackobock (1885) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - FEB 12, 2015
January 23, 2015. Bottle at Bier Circus.
Hazy orange with a creamy white head. Aroma is sweet malty, dough, honey, orange, floral and light perfume notes. Taste is medium sweet with a medium smooth floral and grassy bitterness in the back. The bitterness in the finish is grassy and floral and a bit sharp. Medium bodied, fizzy carbonation.

adamnowek (406) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - FEB 10, 2015
Hazy orange-ish gold. Head recedes fairly quickly. Fairly floral in scent. Quite bitter and a reasonable about of dryness on the palate.

LeFaune (37) - ST MANDE, FRANCE - FEB 9, 2015
Very nice golden color with plenty of consistent foam. Faint malts aroma. Nice malty taste, bitter but very balanced, round with hints of clove and licorice. Doesn’t stay much on the palate. Could be treacherous: very easily swallowed, but 8%. Would be great on tap and very cold.

330ml bottle from Appellation Wines. Pours hazy pale yellow-gold, thick white head. Aromas of fresh dough, light lemon and spice. Taste has more spice and citrus tang. Dry finish.

Bottle from Appellation Wines. Appearance - golden orange with a nice fluffy head. Nose - lemon peel and grass. Perhaps some spice. Taste - candied orange, light white pepper note. Palate - medium bodied with a tangy texture and a long dry tangy finish. Overall - good example of an Abbey Tripel.
